A Stroll in The Rose Garden

087603c5-0d09-4c76-8611-dbde8cdca204 (2)I kind of wanted to save this post for later in the month, back then life happened and made digital drawings a little bit trickier. But not to worry, I’m sure I can come up with something to overcome this little bump in the road. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy some paintings and pencil drawings.

For this post, I’m going to do another little painting process, starting with the pencil drawing.

(In my defence, it’s hard to draw a faceless person and for their head, not to look slightly like Slender Man’s. Maybe I should have gave him hair.)

thumbnail_20180130_182310I’ve jumped straight to the finished paint work, because I was trying out Gouache paint for the first time and was experimenting with it, a little too much (translation, I made a mess, so had to fix it and I don’t think you would want to see my mess). My only other regret about this stage is, watering down the paint so much. If I used less water, the piece would be more vibrant.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this painting process post. Hopefully I’ll be back to digital drawing soon and will be able to create something for the weekend post.
As always, thanks for reading.
