I am so grateful for the beautiful and sunny weather this weekend. It is so good for the soul. Happy Easter.
At the moment I am very much attracted to bright and happy colours. These are my favourite ones this month. I will be sharing them with you on a regular basis now. Sometimes this will be based on current projects, other times it will be an experiment as I work on expanding my colour library.
I miss painting “editorial style” illustrations once in a while, as I am working on a new, more narrative portfolio. So I decided to procrastinate a little bit yesterday.
Originally I posted this on Instagram as well, but took it down again. Instagram is an extension of my portfolio and I felt that this little painting does not fit the direction I am going. In the future these kind of illustrations and sketches will be shared here on my journal.
In February I shared some of the illustrations with you, which I have been doing to improve the facial expressions of the characters I draw. This month I am going deeper into this topic and am working on illustrating emotions. Especially between two or more people. I started with some mother daughter paintings and might extend this exercise to pets and their owners.
