Compositions – Supplies and the studio

Some new paint, there was a sale at my local art shop, exited about the Silk Purple and Wedgewood Blue. Sad to hear they are discontinuing all Daler Rowney products from their store. I’ll miss the system 3 acrylics, they were my first acrylic paints. Still working on some quick acrylic studies, and I have no idea where to store them since they’re a bit bigger that my regular watercolors.

“Rachel” watercolor January 2017

“Rachel” watercolor January 2017 I started this late December. As usual is just sat there nearly completed for a couple of weeks before I finished it. Terribly bad habit that, but oh well, it’s finished now.

“Rebel Princess”

Watercolor and gouache stars, rebel Princess Leia. This Fabriano 300g 25% cotton paper gave me a bit of a hard time layering, the paint has to be completely dry for it too work and I really wanted it finished today. Luckily it went fine, no major messed up parts.

“Gone Now”

Watercolor and graphite. I think I finished it in September. Remembered I should post it a day I saw my cat sitting on it. And so it goes.


“Nadia” watercolor and gouache. Sometimes my scanner -really- picks up on the texture of the paper, other times not. I’d prefer it didn’t.

Small acrylic painting

A Small acrylic painting I did. Trying to loosen up my style a bit, so there hasn’t been a lot of these sort of “realistic” ones. Maybe I’ll post some of my experiments soon.

“Think Again”

Watercolor and gouache stars. This is from February, completely forgot to post it (surprise, surprise). She’s so faint and airy, I thought about adding more layers, but I just couldn’t. She’s just the way she’s supposed to be.

Watercolor from 2015

A watercolor portrait I did in 2015. Really light and airy. It’s just been sitting in a drawer, found it recently and though it was about time to post it!
