In the sketch book: spa colors


A quick watercolor sketch …


Paint Colors by Chip it!® Sherwin-Williams®

What a crazy winter weather up north, hope everyone is warm and safe in their homes with loved ones.  Speaking of love, I painted a quick watercolor study sketch of a room that caught my eye on Instagram.  Turns out it was of Megan Hess.  Megan is well-known fashion illustrator from Australia.  Her illustrations are so beautiful!! Here’s the link to her portfolio.  Her beautiful bedroom has gorgeous white draperies, Ralph Lauren black and white stripe wall paper, and a sumptuous cozy chair. Love this room!!

Who knew this was her room? Not me, this is why is so important to post the names of designers, and creatives of their work when it’s shared in social media.  I know I have the same fault, but it’s never to late to start, right?

More interior rendering and sketches to come!

Thanks for stopping by!

My new creative venture: Painting with watercolors!

my desk and watercolors

I’ve always love art even since I can remember.  Being in the creative field has allowed me to create designs for interiors and its something I enjoy a lot. But, creating art is my biggest passion..

 It’s been about a year that I starting drawing and painting again, and I couldn’t be more happy!  Every time I paint is like a new adventure unfolding before my eyes, especially with watercolors.  So, now that you know what I’ve been up to!  Would you like to see more?  In the meantime, here’s my latest art print Titled “Indigo Blue” a watercolor abstract.  Please leave a comment, I’d love to read your feedback!

A rose is a rose? And a Watercolor Rose gif

Today is Worldwide Sketch crawl day! In honor of this event, I decided to draw a single rose in red. I sketched this single rose yesterday and added watercolor in reds and pinks. I then added them to a gif app, which is so easy to do, just add your images. Boom there you go!
I hope you enjoy your Saturday and weekend! Happy sketching friends and thanks for stopping by…
