Etsy is hosting a site-wide sale that I’ve decided to be a part of!! From November 20th to 30th all the items in my shop will be 15% off. I figured this would be a perfect time to thank y’all for all your support! I currently still only have prints in my shop because I’m waiting for my Christmas card paper & envelopes to arrive in the mail (hopefully today 🤞🏼) so I can get them printed out, pictures taken & then posted! ***See my latest IG story to see what my printing process is & what the final product looks like 😊*** I’m hoping to have Christmas cards, gift tags & maybe even recipe cards in my shop by the end of this week so y’all can take advantage of the second week of my 15% off sale! I’ll keep y’all posted 😃 Just follow the link in my bio to my Etsy shop!
Announcement: And that’s it for the colorful Akademie set! We have sold our last piece and the factory in Germany has also SOLD OUT! Congratulations to the early birds! 😍💖 We still have the other LIMITED EDITION SETS and so get your favorite while we still have them (and can still get stocks)! 🤗
Raphael’s synthetic brush made for watercolor! It holds twice the color compared with other classic synthetic brushes... —👌🏻
Softaqua fibre is a technical innovation created thanks to the collaboration between artists and the Raphael's research and development department. The result of this research is an exceptional synthetic fibre offering unequalled colour carrying capacity. The wavy fiber catches the water molecules and the colour, contrary to the classic synthetic fibres which are straight and lined up. Thus, thanks to this innovative wavy form, a Softaqua brush holds twice as much color. #raphaelbrushes#raphaelbrushesph#art#artph#watercolorph#watercolorists#painting#paintingph#artsuppliesph#artsupplies#artsupplies

A mini painting of pretty Abbie. It's looser than I wanted it to be. 😣 I had this moment when I thought that I already know how to deal with watercolors but then my paints decided to prove me wrong. My love-hate relationship with art is never ending.

“Cat Nap” Part two of my gentle giants series! Swipe left to see the entire painting. ✨ I remember one of my cats who would accompany me to our shop and nap there. Customers loved petting him and he didn’t mind at all. Sometimes I wonder how it feels to nap all day. 😀💕 #illustration#carlachuaart#cats#naptime#cute#houses
Last summer I pulled my watercolor paints out of storage and began playing around. I ended making tons of these 3.5 x 3.5 inch mini paintings with hand-stamped quotes on them. My sharing them now among my dreary landscapes is a tribute to my path as a creative. For years I was making elaborate mixed media art with paints, stamps, papers, metals, you name it. This was after I told myself that I should abandon drawing and painting. But then that phase passed and I stumbled on drawing animals... loved doing that and after a year I stopped. Just last summer I pulled out my paints and decided to try again, to just play and see what happened. And then a whole project was born. I brought these to my opening and a handful of them sold. I’ve got maybe 20 or so left. What do you think? Should I share more?
