Lately my life has been controlled by these crazy pregnancy symptoms. My first trimester was pretty smooth. But now that I am entering my third trimester I am getting more and more exhausted and have no energy to do anything. My sleep pattern has changed drastically. I sleep from 6 am to 2 pm daily and I'm up all night. 26 weeks down 14 to go.

July's most liked posts and it seems like my #gouache paintings are taking over. This I plan to continue my gouache studies while also breaking out my #promarkers again. I have a couple of reference photos in mind and can't wait.

Used my new #carbothello pastel pencils to do this sketch of @cydbee. I find that pastel pencils are harder to control than regular colored pencils (especially when not sharpened) however, they blend so much easier. If only I can figure out how to sharpen them.

Second half of the week. Not much going on this week, fatigue and nausea has taken over my life.

Last nights sketch. Practiced glazing for the background. It didn't come out how I wanted but it came out nice anyhow.

Current #wip is #gouache in #artboard. Never painted flowers in gouache hope it turns out okay. I plan on hanging this piece up in the house when finish. So far I am loving how the gouache paints glide in this board.

Finally finished this #gouache painting on #cansonartboard today. It was so hard to try and match the color of her face with the color of her body. No matter how hard I tried it just wouldn't match. Not to self make sure you complete the entire body before taking any breaks.

Self-portrait. I love how this turned out despite the fact my #copic marker ran out on me. I guess I need to buy a refill fast. I used my #brushmarkers by Winsor &a newton for everything but he face. #drawgust

#arttherapy quick #gouache practice while my daughter naps and my son plays Minecraft. Still working on a l#limitedpalette for this one however I did add burnt sienna to the #zornspalette and I love how it came out.
I am getting better at knowing how much water I need to get the right consistency and mixing the right color but need a lot more practice blending and making sure my strokes work to improve my painting.
This has by far become one of my favorite mediums. I'm not quite giving up watercolor yet but it's close.

Current watercolor #wip. I totally butchered the eyes but I think I did a good job and salvaging them somewhat. The #pilotpocketbrushpen is so hard to control sometimes. Ugh. Hopefully I can get this completed by tomorrow.

Oil painting in my #handbooksketchbook using the zorn palette. I have been practicing painting this month using #watercolor, #gouache, #oilpaint, and #acrylicpaint to see which mediums I like working with the most. So far I am loving watercolor ( of course) and gouache. I will definitely continue to practice in oils and acrylics but they are definitely harder to work with.
For this painting I used the zorn palette which is another focus for this month and I love how the colors look together.

Tonight's #gouache practice. Second attempt at the #zornpalette. The process wasn't as stressful but I have so much more to learn. Again I will be adding a burnt sienna and a rose color to this palette just as convenience colors when needed.

Gouache portrait practice using the #zornpalette. This was my first attempt and though it was very difficult I do love the process. Have to keep practicing. I do plan on adding burnt sienna to my gouache palette as well, so that mixing skin tones will be a little easier.

Ordered some #cansonillustrationboard wanted to try it out with my #promarkers and I love how it turned out. Can't wait to try a bigger piece. Side note: I really need to let my ink dry so that it doesn't smear.

Oh how I've missed my watercolors. For #worldwatercolormonth I'm going to focus on developing a character. I have an idea of who she is now but I'm going to play around with different outfits, hair colors, and features until I settle on a design.
