|My first watercolor painting in 4 years!!!|
Drawing is something I've been doing since I was a little kid and it started with helicopters or at least I called it helicopters, but didn't look anything like it . |
A few years later I started drawing horses and playing recorder. I developed a lot in drawing horses and playing music.
Then in 6th grade I started an orchestraclass and learned a lot about music and started playing other instrument like paino and guitar, which I mostly learned myself to play but the orchestraclass help me a bit on the way
I also kept on drawing horses and in 9th grade I could draw photorealistic horses.
But I wanted to take my drawing skills to a whole new level. Pencil portraits.
So I started drawing a portrait of Aro Volturi from New Moon because I was a huge Volturi-fan.
Now, since I started my first year in Highschool, I'm very good with portraits and I'm developing more and more.
I also still plays recorder, piano and guitar and just keep getting better

Personal Quote: There can be only one!
Background and layer one done!!
I'm a bit bored with just black and white drawings and want to do something with color.
I personally love water colors and I have my own techniques when I'm working with that medium.
I work on dry water color paper instead of wet since it makes the water color dry faster.
It gives the color some lines, but I want that since it's suppose to look like the hair on the horse.
As you can see, I've added a light layer on the whole horse which helps me add cool gradients everytime I add more color.
It's also the easiest way for me to correct some details if I have to.
Instead of adding a bold color right away.
And the more lighter layers I add, the easier it is to create a more realistic effect to the drawing.
I'm not expecting it to look hyper realistic, but as detailed as I can which means smaller/thinner paint brushes the more layers I add.I try to avoid white and only use the white on the paper, but I might add some white as a finishing touch.
