On My Own

I have recently moved into my own place so I have been more busy with unpacking and cleaning than I have with anything else. I am in love with my new apartment and so excited to start decorating more.

My next goal is to purchase an easel because I want to start painting and try something new. I also plan on finally finishing some old drawings that I have worked on in the past.

The apartment in general is exactly what I was looking for with granite, hardwood flooring, and stainless steel appliances. I also have a built in desk which is very helpful since I was already planning on getting one.

Other than beginning to create more art, I also plan on doing a post at least once a week now instead of once every two weeks. Also follow me on Instagram (link is in sidebar) for more updates on what I’m doing.

Mermaid Eyes

I have a few drawings I am working on currently including the Unicorn one, but I also just did a quick one at work the other day for a friend. I have been keeping myself busy and will be starting my own Etsy soon.

I did this one on one of those paper/cardboard backs of a paper pad and just used a regular pen. I then used some prismacolor pencils for color to make the mermaid stand out. I really love using complementary schemes in my work.

An Update on Chaos

So I started to add some color and I experimented with a colored pencil blending pen (much different than the regular blending colored pencils). It does a decent job at blending the pigment together but it is watery and causes some areas to look blotchy. I do not think that I will be using this kind of blender again but it was fun to try out.

As for the piece itself, it is not exactly turning out the way that I imagined, but at the same time it was mostly just a study of balance and color. I’m still trying to decided where to add more color and where to throw in some glitter. If anyone has any suggestions let me know!
