Вот смотришь на девушек в инста и создается какое-то впечатление и мнение о них, а потом видишь их на видео и почти всегда мнение меняется в противоположную сторону, то в плохую, то в хорошую, особенно в плохую, когда начинают выставлять видео за рулем без слов крутив головой "я так себя люблю, зацените какая я красивая, сделанная, разнакрашенная". И вот Яна одна из тех, буду честной, к которой я была равнодушна и не понимала почему у нее столько поклонников) но однажды я попала на ее прямой эфир и не могла оторваться! Какая же она приятная! Рассказывала полезные и интересные вещи и полностью расположила к себе! Конечно же захотелось ее и нарисовать) Спасибо за вдохновение!
👩🏻🎨🎨🖌Ok I spoke about showing you guys some tips and tricks so I thought I’d start with the basics first and just show my tools that I use the most.
I paint in acrylics and I just love Golden heavy body paints as they are so thick and creamy and the colours are gorgeous. I also use the flow version but mainly for my backgrounds. Others I use are Winsor & Newtown, Old Holland flesh tint (but in no ways is it a skin colour) and Charvin (just started with these and there are so many beautiful colours!) ❤️
I mostly only use Trekell brushes, specifically Golden taklon (I’ll go into the types and what I use them for at a later date) and larger long handle Neef brushes (Australian brand).
I have two preferred surfaces which I like to switch up. I can’t decide which I love more! Ampersand Gessoboards or 514 Caravaggio Italian linen. The gessoboards are so smooth for getting the details I want. The canvas has a beautiful texture but still fine enough to achieve the details.
Winsor & Newton Flow improver is a medium I use to get the right consistency with my acrylics and it helps them glide more and again, helps me try and achieve those details I relish painting.
These tools are just what I’ve become accustomed to and love and are by no means the hear all and end all. They are just what seems to work for me.
There are other items I use but I’ll post those individually later. If you’ve got any questions happy to answer 😊
This was started 3 years ago, when I went back home for summer. For a ton of reasons, I just let it sit there and never managed to finish it until know. One of the reasons is that I could see a lot of mistakes... I only recently decided to finish it after all, and redraw it better someday. It took... quite a lot of time to finish. I’m glad I did, even though I can still see the problems 😅 I really liked the variety of paints and inks I ended up using for this ☺️
Trying to learn some life lessons from the experience... .
Watercolor is so therapeutic to me 🖌
Since the move, I haven’t gotten a lot of one on one time with the paints, and I tell ya, I’ve been missing it! I am especially ancy to get back into working on my #everydaywatercolor paintings.
My sister-in-law @katie.hollinger and I both started working on each day together and I’ve really enjoyed the company while painting, along with getting to show her how wonderful watercolor really is. If you are at all interested in playing around with watercolor, I highly recommend Everyday Watercolor by Jenna Rainey of @monvoirco. Whether you’ve had experience in watercolor or not, you’ll be sure to learn something new in her book. 🙃
Also, everyday challenges are so good for your muscle memory with painting. 😌 These are days 6-10 from the book. I’ve had so much fun with the daily prompts so far. My favorites so far are day 6, 8, and 9. I just loved painting the sage, thyme, peony, and eucalyptus. 🌿 Of course I loved painting the trees too. 😍🌲🌲 Experimenting with making a patterned piece was so enjoyable too. Looking forward to starting day 11 and moving forward. 😊 Hopefully can start back up with it tomorrow! 🤗
