Little video of how I draw a skin ✍🏼

I am a silhouette of darkness, so often misunderstood and taken for granted
I am a wave of white light that absorbs all the trauma and agony of all who’ve enter my spectrum
I am black and white, as I never knew a shade of grey. Often moving from one extreme to the next
I am a tweed patchwork quilt, sewn together by dreams, and patterned by all who’ve broken me.
Sometimes, I am sunshine yellow, on my brightest days when the coffee is just right and the leaves are crisp;
I am blush, my cheeks rosy red at the sight of love, an elderly couple hand in hand, or a friendly smile from a stranger.
I am forest green, as I lay in the grass, careless, and I am one with nature.
Though, I am ivory, as I willingly give endless miles, for those who’ve only asked for a mere inch…
As I am burnt umber, an open book and a good read: read by all the wrong people, in all the wrong places
I am made of porcelain; the naive girl in the fairytale, who tries to the save wolves, rather than running away from them
I am blue, for when the days seem endless and there is too much time in the world…
Or perhaps crimson red, when bad decisions roar like a broken record, and I find myself asking “why me…” I am never grey, and my bones aren’t made of steel. They’re alabaster white, and fragile as rose pedals. | 🥀 #art . | poem by me.
I have always loved and had a passion for art, ever since I was a little girl coloring at my "art table" that my artistic mom made for me. I have also always been a rock climber. I started climbing at age seven, and as my climbing evolved, so did my art. As I turned to the branches of larger trees, I started to draw with real illustrator pens. When I first clutched the plastic holds of a climbing gym, I discovered my love for lines and light. My transition to real rock sparked a transition to line work and watercolor. About five years ago I had a bad hiking accident that brought me to painting. With multiple breaks in my spine, a shattered pelvis, and other injuries, I was told I would never walk again. I spent a little over a year in a wheelchair, re-learning to walk and teaching myself how to paint with watercolors to fill in the time. As I began to recover, my art helped me cope and helped me focus on something other than the physical and mental pain. After a lot of hard work, pain, and dedication I am climbing again. You can follow @seelyseeclimb to keep up with my climbing adventures. With my art I am attempting to fund the climbing trips I missed out on while in a wheelchair. I am currently based in San Jose, CA, where I climb for Five Ten, 3rd Rock, and Bluewater Ropes, and work on my art. You can purchase originals, custom art, and prints via my website, seelyseedraw.com (link in bio). Thanks for supporting my art! 🙏🏼❤️

Today’s piece is called ‘Inspiration’ as you’ll see in the next photo that I was so inspired by my sons (8 years old) palette that I picked up the brushes and open paints and created my own larger version. Loving the palette and my over the moon son who is so proud to have made such brilliant colour choices. 😍 It would be fun to see someone fall in love with both pieces together!
A years improvement! Honestly the difference isn't that I wasn't capable of drawing the bear on the right a year ago. The difference is that a year ago I was still majorly struggling with finding my personal style, and was only drawing the way I thought people would like. I also had very little patience and wanted to put ideas on paper as quickly as possible without trying very hard. Now I draw how I want to draw and just hope people still like it anyway, and I give all my effort to every piece. This is the result. So if you're struggling or are unhappy with your own art, know that it's not that you don't have it in you, it's just that you haven't found it yet.
Onward, 11"x15". Original for sale and prints to come! So if you followed my old art account you'll notice that this is a new rendition of an old piece. I didn't know it at the time, but that one was just the concept draft for this one. When I had the idea for this piece I just wanted to get it out on paper as quickly as possible, using minimal skill. With this piece I told myself ok, stop screwing around and actually TRY. Happy to say that I tried my best.
I found this beautiful woman here on insta and so if she sees this somehow, I hope she likes it. I've had a lot of work this past week, but as I said before I'll have some time to work on art for the next week or so, yay! Hope you like this piece and have a great day 🙏
