Hey, there! Thanks so much for dropping by!
Today I'll be sharing a time-lapse video demonstrating the usual process I go through when painting more of an editorial-style illustration with no background. This painting was created as part of the August calendar design I'm about to send out to my wonderful newsletter subscribers!
Though this video isn't a tutorial, I'm VERY excited to be sharing some news that you may be interested in if you're a beginner/intermediate artist looking to improve your skills, find your artistic voice and gain the confidence you need to start putting your work out there!
If you'd like to check out a couple of my more informative watercolor blog posts/videos,

Below are the exact supplies I used to create this piece. All of these offer great quality and accessible prices!
The paintbrushes I'm using are from Royal & Langnickel's Zen line, which I'm really loving so far (I'm not being sponsored).
Check out the products I created with this illustration at my Society6 shop!
I hope you found this post enjoyable, even if it was much shorter than my usual ones, and stay tuned for next week's watercolor tutorial! :)
