Watercolor exploration

In the month of January I took some skillshare classes in watercolor techniques! I like using watercolors a lot, but I have never really taken the time to try out different techniques. I have previously simply used them for naive coloring of doodles, but now after taking some classes I have a better understanding of the medium. How the paints work and mixes together. These are some of my first paintings I did along watching the class. I have a lot to lean still, but I am really enjoying the progress that I am already making. Yay to trying new things! Stay tuned for hopefully much more watercolor experimentations in the future 🙂

2017 Year of the Rooster

I have been working on this tribal design for 2017 Chinese New year (coming up this weekend!) and this year is the year of the rooster, hence the rooster subject matter 😀 I am super excited about this new technique that I just learned. I have been watching tutorials on lynda.com on original tribal illustration and this is my first go at it. I love how graphic it is and how all the shapes connect with one another. If times permits I would love to turn this into a series. Perhaps not all the Chinese  horoscopes, but it is a good place to start. It is something a little bit different from my normal style, but I don’t think it diverts enough to not work with my portfolio. Feel free to reach out and let me know what you think and if you have any ideas for subject matters that would look awesome with this tribal style!
