Jobyna & Rafael's garden solemnisation party
A Star Wars themed collateral for Alvin & Wei Ying.
A personal favourite of mine, The Far Woods by Sarah Burwash. Came across this Canadian artist at a book fair in London last year and took an instant liking to her illustrations. Inspired by the expressions of her strokes and soft washes, I picked up the brush and made myself a bookmark for this precious book.
I love watercolor as a medium, and it is possibly the best one to paint my favorite animal in. Painting with water might seem simple but the tricky bit is in managing the layers of translucency to create the right texture as the colors overlap and blend in with a shade of another. At times when I feel that I might have forgotten how to paint, it teaches me all over again – a dab of water and one stroke of color at a time.
Not too long ago, I caught a glimpse of the ocean giant. At first, I could only see its eyes. Slowly, it emerged and drifted along to the billowy clouds in the sea of space.
Finally found time to scan this in, one of my better water coloring attempts by far and my favorite forestlings.
Time to get more practice.
