Some imaginary fishies for my next pattern. 🐟🐠🐟🌊 I painted them with my selfmade watercolors in my selfbounded sketchbook. This is such a satisfying feeling,, knowing everything comes from myself.
Do you also have this incredible curiosity and aspiration to understand and make everything you use yourself?
if it just would be possible.
Or is it just a strange quirk? 😅
I guess my next step would be: making my own watercolor paper.😊

Also, i uploaded a process video on my IG TV how i edit my watercolors t make a repeatable pattern, if you like to watch. ❤

Here is the final repeatable moss-and-mushrooms pattern design of my watercolor original i posted before.
🌱🍄🌱
I tried to record my editing process while doing it, because you guys where very curious about it, but unfortunately a lot went wrong while recording. Not only that my computer started to lagg extremly while recording, but also all the drop down menus and also the layers aren't visible in the video, although they were of course there while i was working, so you see the mouse arrow clicking on nothing ^_^ (so weird 😮) My monitor has also an extremely high resolution, so you see everything a bit small.... The last time i was recording my screen was years ago, so i am not used to it anymore. 😅
My question now is, would you like to see the video anyways? Do you have any tips for recording for the next time i want to record my editing process? Thank you so much, guys, I hope you enjoy the pattern anyways. 💕

Moss & Mushrooms 🌱🍄 little elements i painted for a pattern I am currently working on. I will rearrange it a little bit and maybe delete some elements later in photoshop to make an repeatable tile. I will do another pattern next week and i am thinking of my next video for my yt channel and igtv. Would you be more interested in the painting process or in the editing process in photoshop? Both would be too long for a video. Also, if you have good ideas for a subject for the 2. pattern, let me know in the comments. ☺ thank you so much for your help 💕

Finally!!! My etsy store re-opens tomorrow 6 pm CEST ☀🌱🌳
.
I made this quick and loose illustration just for fun to experiment with different media without sketch or pre-drawing. It's inspired by the garden of my parents i visited last week. We had such a nice summer weather with a little breeze that i spend almost all days in the garden. I thought i could use this little painting to anounce my etsy shop re-opening. .
There will be a lot of new limited and numbered giclée-prints and some originals. I will also update with originals from time to time during this summer. So keep your eyes open.😆
.
If you have a special illustration you like to have as an original, let me know in the comments here, maybe i will choose to sell it. See you hopefully tomorrow on my etsy store ➡ link in bio➡

And an other experiment i forgot to post (➡swipe for early progress➡). This time i used just graphite, red and white. Next time i will try this "technique" with more colors and also with a more common motive i am better known for. But its really fun to paint something totaly diffrent also in a very diffrent way with diffrent colors. everything is completly new for me and i just started using them with no idea what i am doing. I love learning things with just experimenting and trial and fail without any guidelines or instructions. Thats also the way how i learned using watercolors or almost anything 😅
Do you prefer having instructions, tutorials or guidelines when you learn something new or are you a freedom loving person like i am who prefer finding own ways to paint and use materials?
Let me know your thoughts.☺

I completely forgot to post the final result of this experiment. Maybe because i am not 100% happy with it. What do you think of it? Do you like the chalky effekt? I used soft pastels, colored pencils and gouache ( you can see wips in my story highlights in the process folder) i think about making another version to experiment a bit more, maybe also with some other tools. Would you like to see it? Even when I fail? Maybe as a Livestream?...😅
