On these greenhouses I experimented a bit with gouache, watercolors and pastels. 🌵🌴🌱
It seems as if the light of the upper left piece is in the photo, but it's not: it's the pastel effect in the illustration. 😅
More previously unreleased greenhouses can be found in my book which will be available very soon (link for pre-ordering in my bio)

I'm working almost full-time on my orders at the moment because my lovely followers are buying so much from my store ❤ ( link in bio)
I want to thank you here for all your support. It helps me a lot at keeping to do what i love most. Not only with your purchases, but also with all your likes and heartwarming comments.
💕Thank you!!💕
But because of that I hadn't time to finish my current illustrations right now, so here is a little #throwback from 2016. This is my part of the collaboration i did with @pearfleur ➡swipe➡ to see her part too. We both enjoyed the collaboration so much and i hope we can do another one some day. Btw: our process videos are still on our yt channels.☺

Hooray!! I just re-opened my etsy shop.
🎉🎊
There are 3 new limited and numbered fine art giclée-prints in my shop. Unlike my normal laser prints they are printed with archival pigment ink (UltraChrome HD Ink) on slightly textured 290g genuine watercolor art paper (Hahnemühle Bamboo fine art paper). Once this prints are sold out, they will never be available again. So if you love it, better don't wait too long. Those are numbered, signed and dated on front and back.

You can see me painting it in the workshop post before. It will be available as a print in my etsy shop besides some other new prints and also some originals when I re-open my shop next week. Are there some special illustrations you wish to see as a print in my shop? Or even an original you would like to buy? Please let me know. Perhaps I'll be able to concider your wishes. 😉💕

Happy Halloween 🎃

#Throwback to a little piece of coraline from 2015 back in time when i still did outlines. Now i prefer doing my illustrations without outlines but i still like this little drawing. And i loooove Coraline 💕
.
What about you? Do you prefer lineless styles or with outlines? I myself prefer it without outlines when i do my own illustrations but i still like the line work from other illustrators 😍 .
Maybe i just concentrated on what i am good at and i like 😊
.
Cheers and 🎃 happy halloween 🎃 again!

Thank you @jmsillustration for taken so many beautiful photos, @angisuarezgonzalez for translating my english to spanish, all participants and of course @lagaleriaroja 💕

Here is the finished illustration of my imaginary Italian town. I really like how it turned out. (swipe for a closer view). When i paint something i have seen in reality I never paint it like it is. I do my own compositions and simplify it a lot. In the end the result is often just slightly inspired by what I have seen. What about you? Do you like it or would you have preferred something more realistic?

I found this little painting video on my phone and realized i never posted or uploaded it because I forgot to record the finishing part. There are more unfinished videos on my phone, also some videos where I forgot to record a part inbetween. And now i was wondering if l should edit and upload them although they are not complete... Would it be interesting for you?
If there are enough of you they would like to see it, l would take this time to do it. So, please let me know your thoughts in the comments.❤

Experimented a bit on different versions and different techniques on this portrait i did after a sketch from my sketchbook. (but the other one is completly messed up 😅) But i kind of like this one, although it turned out a bit messy. Do you sometimes or often paint an illustration twice or even more? I often do a bunch of sketches but i try to avoid to do the final illustration twice or even more, because in the end i often like the first one most 😂. What are your experiences?
