The fineliner brush and the first coat of watercolour!

I've started watercolouring my asian bridal illustration today. I definitely need to use my fineliner brush for this one. All those little details and trying to keep within the lines is a pretty hard job!

It starts off with the first coat of watercolour as a base, then moving onto adding more watercolour details and shading. I'm looking forward to the final outcome soon.

Lovely little details! ♥

After yesterdays post, there are seriously not enough hours in the day and the same thing happened today! I love drawing, but unfortunately it's hard to always put it as my main priority. I'll try my best to post as often as I can.

Today I finally finished off the details on the asian bridal illustration I started. I love all those lovely little details which complete the illustration! 

Details done

Day 8: Not enough hours in the day!

So much to do but so little time. That's how I feel sometimes. Today I didn't have any time to draw but I finally got around to organising some of my illustrations.

Illustration galore
As drawing has now become more of a hobby for me, something I do in my free time and like to still keep in touch with so I hardly get any time unless it's after work or during holidays. Drawing has always been something I eat, sleep and breathe but as I have now gone into teaching, I've had to make it number 2.

Hopefully one day in the future I can do illustrations full time.

Day 7: A new day, a new illustration!

I've started a new illustration tonight. Still keeping to the fashion illustration theme but this time I'm having a go at Asian bridal outfits. I love the design and details on Asian bridal outfits, but it is seriously hard work to draw all the amazing little details that make the outfits wow!

So far, I have drawn the outline and started on some of the details. Illustration to be continued...

Day 6: Those finishing touches! ♥

I've finally managed to finish off my fashion illustrations from the other day. Those little finishing touches are always my favourite when I'm drawing fashion illustrations!

Those gold and glitter touches

A little bit of gold and glitter goes a long way and really adds a lot to the illustration. I'm happy with the outcome and I will share what paints and glitter I have used to achieve this in a future post!

Day 5: Back to reality!

Back to reality! Back to work after 2 weeks off. I'm still getting use to the routine. Today was a rather chilled day which required theraputic colouring and my favourite which is, making display board bits. Fun times!

The good life

I've been responsible for display boards at work for a year now. I've enjoyed each display board task. I love getting a chance to use my creative ideas to put on show for everyone. There have been a few times where I've had a massive creative block, especially when I.m given a handful of display board ideas.
How do you usually get out of a creative block?

For me, the best way to get out of a creative block is:
Do something random. Different. Out of the box. Try something new. And relax, after a while something will inspire you!

For me, the creativity just doesn't stop today. I've been working on tedious little bits for tomorrows display board and I'm finally done, yay!

Day 4: Do what you love! ♥

It's the last day before I'm back at work tomorrow after 2 weeks off. It's been a very productive one, even though I haven't had much time to do my artwork. Today I feel super motivated! I need to feel like this at the beginning of the holidays, rather then the last day. A reminder to myself when the next holiday comes!

I spent my evening with my beloved watercolours. My Reeves watercolour set/tin and my Winsor Newton watercolour compact set. To be honest, I mainly use my Reeves watercolor tin and have been using them for over 10 years. I've been through tins and tins and for any new artists, I would recommend it. Recently I've been trying to use the watercolour tubes, but I'm finding it hard to get the right amount of water with the colour. But after a while, I quickly got use to it.

Resh Kay's workspace 

What you see above is my workspace, my mess and how I work. I've had a very productive evening watercolouring yesterdays illustrations. Yesterday I completed step 1: the biro outlines. Today I completed step 2: watercolourng the illustrations.

Work in progress
Finally completed step 2 today and tomorrow I will move onto the last step which is adding the extra details!

Although drawing has now become a hobby, I know drawing is what I love. Do what you love, do what you enjoy! 

Step 2: watercolour done! 

I will try to take more step to step snaps of how I work. I hope this post helped you and if you have any questions, feel free to email:
