Hi! Yesterday I was trying desperately to learn intervals on the guitar and do some sight reading too and what made it better was having Dee by my side.
For those who don’t know, Dee is the impersonation of my friendship with Esther and therefore is filled with love, darkness and weird. She gave him to me last Christmas and ever since he’s been like our little mascot! He’s always with us when we hang out!
So, as Dee had been staring at me for a couple hours and I needed a break, I figured I could use some watercolor practice and he deserved a beautiful portrait!
So here’s Dee in the woods. Sorta. Behold:
Big boy on his school picture! hehe
I’ve gotten better at watercolor since my first attempt when I bought some watercolor pencils(which have now been passed onto my best friend, Lilly)! But there’s still a long way to go…
It’s hard to control the water properly and also I have a hard time getting any details really. But I’ll get there!
I used pastel in the sky and a little bit in the dark areas below the trees too. Oh and for the black in his eyes since I don’t have black in my palette!
The trees were painted in the same style I made this watercolor back at my mom’s place last year.
I like it very much!! Took me longer than it should have but I’ve been very distracted lately and lacking energy too which renders me slower than usual.
Anyways. That’s probably gonna be my only art of the day!
I’ve got some guitar to do now and also, maybe before, go for a fucking walk to allow my mind to breathe a bit!
Just two more pictures! Side to side:
Until next post, practice, practice, practice! But don’t forget to take breaks, drink lots of water and stretch&move to keep your wonderful bodies and minds healthy! ❤
P.S.: I had forgotten to add the links to my previous posts like a silly goose I am! But it’s all fixed now! x)
