Day 180 - Gouache Woes



I really really really don't know what to do / how to handle gouache!

😐😐😐

Also..don't think this is the right technique. I feel like I'm using the same way I would use buncho.

And ...somehow I like my sketch on the right more than the actual finished work hahahahaahah more feel??

Oh! Those pompom socks. Would wear it if I'm ah...4 HAHAHAHAAH wayyyyy overage for that!


I know why already the sketch has more feel. She's bald in front HAHAHAHAAH

Drawing children

Just a random practice piece.

After doing a few live illustration ..I honestly wanna try drawing children. Not sure how well I will do cause children are even harder to capture I guess?

Dahlah for adults live, not like I'm super good at it. But I guess so long the kids are drawn "cutely", it's okay? Hahaha #excuses

But honestly, it's just cause I think kids are sooo adorable. I drew once cause one of the guest brought her baby.

Quite fun leh! Not 100% same but ..ok ba? πŸ˜…
Ta-dah!

I didn't know it at the time of drawing but after much searching on insta. (Wanna see if got any photos of my drawing cause during live there's zero time to take any) & found out that she is sophie3aby.

Not sure if any of u guys follow her but guess who does now πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I follow so many children account, it's not even funny πŸ™ˆ

Anyway, yea. Hope to have a chance on this soooon! ⭐️

Though I have a feeling my style..it will be more of the parent asking the kid to sit than the kid wantingπŸ˜…
πŸ˜‚ I was right about capturing their faces! Dang. Need more observation skills..or something.

But ah! So fun ✨πŸ™ˆ
(Although from a professional pov, my skills are prolly all over the place. I really should go for a long term proper Watercolour class. Have been randomly doing it as I wish since I started)

Gonna just continue this style for another 3 pcs or so (since I already decided which to draw)

Then will try another kind of execution πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Of floral drawings


Anyway, have been trying to do florals lately.

Reason being..I guess I just jumped on the bandwagon seeing how pretty they are being drawn.

It will be my first time doing realistic style. Which I suck at. In a way, I guess I suck at it cause I avoid? Hahahahaha

Art is really, one will only improve with practice. There's no other way.

Obviously.. as you can see. I need more practice πŸ™ˆ
Dandelion girl!

Need to think of more "less drawn" flowers.

For now..I think the popular ones are tulip, roses (damn a lot of roses), hydrangeas, French roses (not sure what are the flowers called actually, but it was in my wedding bouquet HAHAHAHAAH cause the florist couldn't get peonies πŸ˜…) and peonies πŸ˜‚

Guess girls like these flowers in general.

Oh and monstera, or whatever big ass leaves.

Actually the list feels like anything with a wedding-y feel πŸ˜‚

Can see? Those big pink flowers!
Quite popular now.

When I got married, the trend was peonies and this was like "hami lai?" (What isit?) haha
But for some odd reason, there were no peonies available so my florist had to switch to these flowers which weren't known at all at that time for weddings! Not long after my wedding, the flower became popular!...he's quite a visionary guy huh? hahaha

But I think the trend now is moving to greens? Like just foliage (isit called that?)

Anyway, wedding trend moves damn fast! I got married 8 months ago but whatever info I have is ...considered outdated Liao πŸ˜‚ #madness
