Practicing Loose Florals

by , in
Last night I was helping my fiance with the 3d renderings of some office spaces and while my computer was doing some rendering, I was doing some watercolor practice on my own. I haven’t done some loose florals in a while and I know I need to improve on this skill. Hopefully, I’d get better if I get to practice more and more. Each sketch took only about 5 minutes to make on my Travelogue Sketchbook.
Here’s my first attempt. Not really all that happy with the result. I chose the wrong colors I think and the composition is all over the place. Still posting this as my starting reference.

Second attempt was a bit better. I like the colors that I chose here and I think I executed the flowers a bit better than the first one.

Last practice of the night were these flowers. I am pleased with this output and this made me want to practice more. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi on all floral practices.

My 2017 Hong Kong Art Supply Hauls

by , in
Last month, I was in HK for a five day vacation with my fiance and his friends. Aside from getting a break from my toxic work schedule, I also got to revisit my favorite art stores and got to take home these art hauls. Take a look at what added to my suitcase’s weight on the flight back.
