I will not bore you with much description. She is actually quite well known, and one of the few ‘big’ artists that actually seems to answer all her asks. (seriously she has a lot of them). If you have any questions regarding the material she uses I suggest you to look through her Tumblr as she has probably already answered that question or similar. You can also find many more paintings in her Tumblr and Instagram.
I’ve been M.I.A online because I’m working on a dream project 😍 I miss all of you gorgeous creatures and I’ll be around again soon, but for now I’m working hard and packing these spreads on my studio floor, ready to be couriered to a scanner.
I hope everyone’s enjoying the weekend! In today’s For the Record, I’m happy to introduce Cait ( caitmceniff ), a 17 year old living in Warrington, England, who is currently at Sixth Form studying Art, History, English, and Psychology. She is hoping to do an art foundation and have a career in art. She kindly took time out to talk to me about her journals and ambitious journal project:
1. How long have you been journaling?
I’ve kept little scrapbooks and doodles or sketchbooks since I was
little, but I only really started properly keeping journals about 2
2. Can you describe how you use your journal?
This January I started my own project I called “12 Journals, 12 Months”, where I try to complete a 92 page A6 journal each month, so far
I’ve done 4 which are pretty full! Because of school workload, my
journal style is mainly inspiration based because I don’t have time to
draw or paint properly in them, as I have to spend that time doing art
coursework :(. Hopefully after my exams I can start to properly journal
with my drawings and paintings! My journals are a mixture of quotes,
images I’ve found, magazine cuttings, doodles, photographs, memories,
thoughts, artist inspiration etc.
I love that you beautiful little things were leaving your thoughts and recommendations for this brand of watercolours! 🌸 The verdict is in for my tin of Schmincke watercolours! 🌴🙈 •
I’m still getting used to them but here are my first impressions: the activation of the paints from dry to wet is amazing (they don’t require much water or much contact with the brush), the colours are really creamy and rich upon activation, and they blend really well both in the palette and on paper.
My only criticism is that I wish they dried as vibrant as they are wet because then my images would require less layers. I already use a lot of layering in my work, so it would make achieving the desired vibrancy a lot easier. •
Overall positives. Plus, the vibrancy issue could have to do with the paper I’m using - I’ve never used it before (@daler_rowney The Langton aquarelle, cold-pressed, 300gsm) - I usually use Arches (aquarelle, hot-pressed 640gsm), but for travel I felt that would be impractical. •
This little gem isn’t completely finished I just wanted to let you cuties know my thoughts - I’ve begun painting a kind of double-exposure desert scene! It’s pretty challenging so I’ll need to practice more! 🙌 Let me know what you think of anything above👆, your own experiences and/or thoughts about your favourite art materials👇👇 I want to create dialog so we can all learn from eachother and create our dreamy images! by furrylittlepeach
I went a little plant crazy on my last trip to Singapore - I just had to document all of it. I love how greenery is incorporated throughout the country and even intertwined amongst buildings through the city. Here are few of my favourite shots..
