Another WIP shot of this painting πŸ‹πŸŽ¨ ***Just wanted to mention as a heads up to you guys that I'm going to be verrrry mobile for the next few weeks and into June with visiting family, an out-of-town wedding, and moving across the country 😡✈️ so I'm not exactly sure if I'll be able to do art on a regular basis 😱 I'll see what I can do! (Or maybe I use this as an opportunity to catch up on all my games XD) But why is it that when I don't think I can art, I suddenly want to do all the art???🀣Anyway I'll keep you updated!πŸ™‹πŸ»

"Breathe" is finished! I hope you guys feel a sense of airy weightlessness and calm when seeing it β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•inspired by the warming weather here in Canada (finally!) and in a few weeks I'll be complaining about how hot it is 😜🌀

Is she falling? Or lying down? πŸ€” Here's a WIP of a watercolour painting I'm working on! 🎨 I have to admit, I feel like I've been in a bit of an art funk lately .__. πŸ’© I guess it hasn't been very long, but I've been struggling with coming up with any ideas on what to draw/paint, and at the same time I'm too scared to execute on ideas that I do actually like XD and I hoard them, hoping I'll feel ready after a "few more paintings" haha. I just wish I wasn't so apprehensive about every new painting 😟 and be able to trust my instincts, but more than that to embrace mistakes and not be totally crushed by it mentally. So here's one of those practice paintings! 😝 I'm getting into it though, and I might be adding some friends so she's not so lonely πŸ˜ŠπŸ¦†πŸŒΌ

Finished! Everyone knew it was Rapunzel 😜I really wanted to make her look very doll-like (almost creepily) in this painting and I think I was mostly successful..!πŸŽ€βœ¨ Are you guys sick of the closed-eyes look yet?? I find myself using it often in my art for some reason...😌🌸🌼 .

"All Tucked In" is finished!πŸ˜½πŸŽ€ I don't think I hit the mark 100% with the style I was intending for this piece but I still like how it came out and it makes me excited to tackle the next paintings in the same style! Also I was too indecisive with what colours to use and so I think the colours got away on me a little, but I don't often include props in my painting so I'll get better with more practice 😀 What do you guys think of this painting style? Does it look at all old-school/vintage-y to you? πŸ˜—
