“Dreamy Girl” Watercolor

Dreamy Girl - mixed media drawing painting watercolor

This is also one of my favorites, my Dreamy Girl made with watercolor. I love her sleepy eyes and her rosy cheeks.

When I start drawing I almost never have an idea of what I’m gonna make. Sometimes it’s going nowhere but sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised! And this was such a moment.

I drew her with graphite pencil and used Neocolors II to color her. Only for her lips and pupils I’ve used Pitt artist pens and the little white dots are made with acrylic pen. The paper is 200g/m2 cold pressed watercolor paper, size 20cm x 20cm.

And I even loved her so much that I’ve turned her into my own Dreamy Girl mousepad

You are safe - girl mixed media drawing painting
Hello and welcome to my brand new blog

This blog will be about my drawings and paintings, for the most part mixed media. I’m fairly new to all of this, I just started drawing last year, but I loved it immediately! If you want to know a little more about that you can read a short story at “About me“.

I found out I especially like working with other people’s left over scraps and old books. This girl is done on a piece of cardboard that I got from a friend. It’s about 2mm thick and 10cm x 10cm high and wide.

This is one of my favorites, I really love how she turned out. Love her eyes, love the colors of the background, love the words …. love just everything And most of the time that is not the case at all!

I can’t remember exactly what supplies I’ve used, but these I  know for sure:

  • patch papers and old bookpages for the background
  • gesso
  • acrylics
  • stamps
  • all purpose stamp ink
  • Prismacolor pencils
  • Derwent graphitint pencils
  • neocolor II
  • liquid Pearls
  • Molotow acrylic pen
  • rub-on letters

When I started to draw I didn’t date anthing and that’s a shame. But fortunately this project has a date on the back. It’s 27 januari 2016, so almost brand new.

I will try and post new projects but also things I’ve made last year from the time that I first started. I think I’ve improved a little bit since last year.
