Guyyyyyys, I’m so excited! I put up the prints from the Doom and Gloom series for sale in my Etsy store as well as a couple favorites that I’ve never sold before online. I’ve only sold the Romeo and Juliet print above and a couple other prints during art walks so far and it’s sold out super quick, so fingers crossed that I’ll have enough.
To celebrate, you can use coupon code NEWSHOP for 10% off your order until Apr 18, 2017 in my shop. I’m working on a new print, tentatively titles Headphones girl (you can see the process here) so I’d love to send these to new homes so I can make room for new prints. Let me know what you think of the new look!
I love drawing outside! Yesterday, we took advantage of the sunshine in Riverside and wend down to UCR Botanic Gardens. The gardens are not super busy, there’s plenty of space, and it has this sort of relaxing hideaway type atmosphere so it’s easily of my favorite places to visit. Some flowers are just starting to bloom and it was so lush and green – my brain just goes on vacation when I’m there.
I drew some not quite in bloom lilac flowers and a very colorful rose. To draw outdoors, all I brought with me were sketching supplies: 2 pencils, 2 erasers, a sharpener, and a sketchbook. You don’t really need much else. If you want the sketch to look more finished, simply take a reference photo and fill in the colors later at home. What’s your favorite (outdoor!) place to draw? Let me know in the comments!
