This week I’m very excited to try a new (to me) technique with ink and watercolor by using layers to create a summer bouquet illustration. Hopefully I can do a proper tutorial on this as I get more comfortable with the compositions, stay tuned! I’ll have this work on display at the Pomona Art Walk this weekend, part of the 500 Block Pomona. I’ve previously had a booth at the Pomona Farmers Market side of the art walk so this is also new and exciting!
Come see me and so many other amazing vendors like Lucky Lace and support local artists! The Pomona Art Walk is on Saturday June 10th at 5 PM – 10 PM at 565 W 2nd St Loft 2, Pomona, California 91766 – you can view event information on my Facebook. See you there!
Two posts in one week?! Don’t worry guys, it’s just a crazy wave of productivity – I’ll try not to make it a habit 😂 So this comic was done earlier (we are not sick anymore) but I thought it was fun to reflect on the whole experience. If I learned anything in life, it’s to do as babyshka says! Let me know if you like these long form comic types, I’ll be doing more in the future and feedback is really appreciated. If you want to see more – I have one more like this from our visit to the LA Times Book Fest last year. Happy reading!
Last month, we visited Yosemite for an annual family trip. This is the second time we visited Yosemite this year as Jeremy and I stopped by there during our mini-moon. It’s really our happiest place on Earth – beautiful in all seasons, and just a little wild. The weather was actually very unpredictable (it rained for 2-3 days!) so we were very lucky to have had a sunny day to draw and sketch in the valley.
For these watercolor drawings, I wanted to have a more loose feel but still apply the things I learned last year. As I’ve painted here before, it was important to me to take in new views and just to take time to observe nature. It’s very rare to get to do that in general, so we really just enjoyed the day to ourselves – me with drawing and Jeremy with reading, in the beautiful Yosemite Valley. Hope we’ll get to visit again soon!
