A lot of you have left comments asking who made the pretty watercolours on the blog. Well, the truth is, it wasn’t me! eep! I actually commissioned some lovely ladies, under the name Estudio Cabron to create my layout for me as I simply didn’t have the patience this time around. Anyway, all of the shoddy watercolour work that has been popping up in posts recently is the result of my trying.
I remember having a question on my Formspring recently, where a girl asked for ideas for summer projects. Well, here is one of my suggestions: I really really enjoy drawing and ‘painting’ even though I know i’m really not the best at it, but there is only one way to get better, and that is to do it over and over, so I bought myself a little watercolour pad where i’m trying to do at least one doodle a day on the pocket-sized page. I’ve called it my summer journal. I plan on putting in my daily outfits, illustrated quotations and soon-to-be memories, and with this shopping ban, perhaps even illustrated wishlists (nothing as beautiful as Caitlin Shearer’s, here).
Today I drew what I wore and practiced a little colour mixing. When i’ve made some progress, i’ll be sure to scan in pages. I want to be as good as these guys!
Do you have a journal that you draw, or paint in? x
