WHAT AM I UP TO?

Drawing. Practicing, more specifically. People say that ‘Practice makes perfect’ and it’s true. Especially in Art. And because I’ve been really bad in drawing and practicing lately, I decided I will finally take it seriously and focus on a certain theme and practice that. I chose ‘Drawing people’

MY OLD PAINTINGS

MY MOST RECENT ARTWORKS

I finally have enough drawings and paintings for showing you! If I would be confident enough to show my worst artworks I would do this way earlier. But I am not. Not just yet. There will be some artworks that I’m not 100% happy with, but hey, no one is 100% happy with their work anyway.

This is a study of an eye I made with pastels. I am not really happy with how it turned out, especially the eyelashes, but the black pastel was so thick that there was no way of doing really thin line. Continue reading

FOREST ACRYLIC PAINTING

It’s been a while since i made another painting. You really need a lot of patience and time for that. Why forest? Because i was really inspired by Baylee Jae’s video.
