Lady in the Water

Lady in the Water | Katya Orlovie

I find watercolors to be so peaceful sometimes but I don’t think this drawing starts from a peaceful place. Currently researching horror movies that happen in small spaces or just one space – like hotel rooms, and this drawing came about. How do we feel about watercolor¬†paint in layers that overlap instead of blend into each other? It’s kind of working for me here.


Doubt | Katya Orlovie

Like I mentioned on Instagram, I’ve been listening to Halsey non-stop and I¬†think we’ve all been there. It looks a touch bit darker on screen than in real life, but I really like how it turned out. It’s magical when Photoshop, inks and watercolors come together. Maybe I should make this a new series? Thoughts!

Painting flowers well into midnight is the best way to deal with Daylight Savings, don’t you think? I’m trying out a new dark navy ink here, not sure if I’m supposed to dilute it with water but it’s coming out really nice.
