Latest Artwork // Mackerel

mackeralI have had a lot of fun painting this, even though there are areas I would have done differently. While I like the blues, I want it to be on more lilac side and maybe more silvery.

When a piece I am painting is complicated than usual, I tend to accidentally use too much water or add too much layers that the paper – no matter how good quality/ expensive it is – warps a little and the paint applied sometimes looks dense (for the lack of a better word). That was what happened to the shadow area, but it looks fine scanned.

If you are wondering why I chose to paint mackerel, I eat this type the most out of all the fish out there. I love tinned mackerels, even though it stinks so bad! It is particularly yummy with salad.

I am surprised I could make fish look pretty! Let’s see if I will paint more. Check out my work in progress video of this watercolour piece.

Latest Artwork // Barn Owl

After finishing my commission at the end of last week, I sat down on my desk aspiring to paint something I wanted to paint and I painted a barn owl.

Around that time, I’d discovered Hyperlaspe app and took an opportunity to try it out while I was working on the owl. Check them out here and here.

I realise I often keep my artwork to myself, will only share them with you if I am at least happy with them and now I want to challenge myself to share work in progress pictures, not knowing whether the piece will go well or not and maybe if I could muster up the courage, share the finished piece even though I don’t like it myself.

Burgess Park is just 20 mins walk down the road from where I live, ashamedly I haven’t been there despite living in the area for over a decade. This morning, I woke up and decided to visit with my Nikon D700.

And I can’t believe I didn’t visit sooner! It is truly a nice park, even with miserable weather this morning. The park was so big that I didn’t explore fully, I will definitely visit it again from Camberwell entrance.

I wasn’t aware that there was a huge lake. I was happy when I saw it and said hello to the ducks.

Christmas Commissions

Sascha

Now that Christmas is over, I can finally share what I’ve painted/ drawn for the last few months! This one was my first commission – I’ve always enjoyed painting black and white only pictures and am keen to do that more. I painted it with oil.

Take a look at the rest of the commissions on my new portfolio page that still need a lot of updating:

Yasmin + Reyes
Ash Family
Poppy

To my delight, all my clients loved their new pictures and were thrilled to give them to their loved ones! One of the receivers actually contacted me directly and thanked me. Gave me a big smile!
