13 x 15 water color
I was contemplating posting some of my poetry that I’ve written. However, I’m not sure how to copyright it, or ensure that no one copies and pastes it as a way to take credit for it. It’s easier with artwork because all of my pieces are signed, and I have all of the originals. If anyone has any suggestions about how I can go about that, or even publishing suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated! I’ve never let anyone read any of my poetry and I felt like this was a good outlet to let that happen.
An abstract I did earlier. I tried working with a new medium, alcohol ink. I know technically you’re supposed to use it on non-porous surfaces, but all I had was a spare canvas. I really dig how the colors turned out, especially the yellow.
9 x 12 watercolor pet portraits
These are the finished products of the portraits I have been working on. I just sent them through the mail (I hope I put enough postage).
I honestly enjoy experimenting with the backgrounds as much as I enjoy actually painting the animals. My favorite background is the blue/teal background of the Dachshund painting, but my favorite painting overall is the one of the tan and brown boxer. I hope she enjoys them!
These are the 9 x 12 pet portraits I have been working on. The top two are finished, and I’m still working on the bottom one. I really like how the backgrounds turned out.
The finished products will be published shortly!
The sketches of two watercolor pet portraits I am working on. These were commissioned a few months ago, before my trip to Africa. However, on top of being out of the country for a month, I have moved into a new apartment and started a new job. Luckily, the woman that ordered them is a family friend (and very forgiving). Normally I have commissioned portraits like these finished within 1-2 weeks.
I am currently working on a few pieces to add to the page. They should be up in a day or two. Thank you for all the support, I really appreciate it! I honestly didn’t think this would go over so well. I’m really enjoying getting to develop and cultivate my art with every piece, and this site gives me initiative to do so.
I am planning to try my hand at water color portraits, which I’ve only ever done in graphite so that should be interesting. I definitely want to try it before the Fall semester starts (I will be a senior in college and this coming semester I will be applying to graduate schools and taking the GRE!).
