"Homeward Bound" is Finished! I'm quite happy with how it turned out, especially little Toto ๐Ÿ˜š I feel like it has a vintage-y look to it which appeals to my old lady senses ๐Ÿค“ Prints of this piece will be available in the near future as well as the original, so please stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

Finally got around to finishing up this 8x10 oil painting and I'm quite happy with how it turned out ๐Ÿ˜Š will be turning this one as a print as well๐Ÿ’• I'm curious, what kind of words or thoughts come to mind when you're looking at this piece??? ๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿค”๐ŸŒน .

Wanted to paint a little munchkin face with very rosy cheeks ๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ„ I hope you find her a bit odd and unsettling as I do! ๐Ÿ˜Š

"Pinkies Up!"๐Ÿบ 9x12 on Arches watercolour paper (tentative title LOL I can never settle on a title). This is a painting I worked on over the weekend, you may have seen the rough sketch of it in my story. This one started on a rough note for me ๐Ÿ˜จ I ran into a lot of issues with it and almost gave up but I was determined to finish it at least and I'm glad I did because I like it a lot more now ๐Ÿ˜ƒ just had to get over that #uglyphase! Prints will be available as the original, so please stay tuned! ๐Ÿ’• .

Here's the finished painting! I decided to paint an old sketch I did a while ago (you can find it not too far back in my feed^^) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I went for a more stylized look this time with incorporating some lines with the colouring. She will be available as an original as well as a print sometime *hopefully* soon ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽˆ #alice #aliceinwonderland #watercolor #watercolour #winsorandnewton #traditionalart #traditionalartist #traditionalpainting #whimsicalart #plaid #tartan #illustration #fairytale #lewiscaroll #paintingoftheday #artistoninstagram #chrishongart

Gotta love that clean border! XD Finished this piece from last night! ๐Ÿ› I don't know if you can notice the difference, but I was trying really hard here to be very light-handed with my strokes because I wanted to achieve a delicate, storybook-like look for this piece๐ŸŽˆ Still a long way to go in achieving the kind of look I'm going for, but I'm liking what I'm seeing so far!๐Ÿ˜ฎ I used a very limited palette of yellow red green and brown to keep the colours very controlled and keep from being garish, because I tend to go overboard with saturated colours in watercolours ^^; Anyway, onto the next one!!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ–Œ๐ŸŽจ Thanks for all the kind comments and thoughts as always!!๐Ÿ™

Painting on Arches watercolour paper (The Rolls Royce of watercolour papersโœจ) and being unreasonably careful with each stroke in fear of ruining it ๐Ÿ˜ญ but I really want to start painting more complex images in watercolour so I'm going to push through this learning curve ๐Ÿ˜ค Here's a little snippet of what I've been working on today๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ› #wip #sneakpeek #watercolor #watercolour #traditionalpainting #traditionalart #redhead #paintinginprogress #arches #idontknowwhatimdoing #illustration #paintingoftheday #artistoninstagram #chrishongart
