drawings & petals

I drew some stuff. Then took photos of it. But not before destroying some perfectly good flowers in the process. Trying to get the hang of watercolours. This time I’m using a proper watercolour pad. Hopefully this will garner better results than previous (mostly failed) attempts. Going to scan them and add to my tumblr later.

    Very pretty indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚ Besides, Chloฤ— is one of my favourite perfumes. It has a slight note that reminds me of paper.

    I love watercolour. Schoolwork has kind of taken over but I really need to get back into doing a bit of drawing and painting for fun. These are gorgeous.

    Your watercolour skills are quite impressive, you seem to be able to blend colours really smoothly! I'm quite envious of that. And destroying flowers definitely was worth it since it gives a nice effect to your photos too!

    How lovely! The flower petals match so well with the pretty colours you used~

    I've found using proper watercolour paper does make a difference! The colours end up being much richer. And I like the texture of the thick paper too.

    @Juliane: maybe that's why I like it so much!

    @claire: hers are lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Amie: argharghargh I should have! I threw them out after I was finished instead :/

    @Lyndall: definitely. Why it's taken me so long to come around to this fact is beyond me. I also just like drawing on the paper too haha
