Sunshine by colonel-strawberry Sunshine by colonel-strawberry
Wanted to try spending a little more time on something, so this morning I painted this little thang for :icontoucat: of her Alejandra and my Izzy :D

It was fun playing with colors, but I think I need to go back and relearn some basics. Aha. Will definitely try this (and maybe other styles of paining) again though, as I slowly move out of a nasty art block.

Alejandra (lab) belongs to *Toucat
Izzy (swedish vallhund) belongs to me.

Don't art blocks suck? It's an adorable piece, but full of hand-strain.
But you've lost none of your solid genius.

Yeah, i think i'm better off admiring the details in other artist's work for now XD I just love sketching and rough work too much to dedicate to these things.

I'm in an art block that I'm THIS CLOSE to breaking...s'frustrating.

Your art is most interesting when it's half-carved...with your colour sense and sketchy linework and gouache-y highlights, but without the needless and immaculate polish. Just throwing that out.

I think I've gotten it out of my system, but now I have to fight to get ma skillz back.

You know what I can warn you about? Yupo watercolour paper. It's made of polypropylene or something...all I know is it doesn't absorb the colours at all, makes everything look 20 shades too light, and makes it impossible to disguise your brushstrokes.
I can gather that, all that transparent layering I see in yours...

Im not sure if i've ever even heard of that brand! But i'll be sure to stay away from it. Im still like... barely art blocked. I actually tried to use my watercolors the other day but gave up on that right quick! Oh well.

Stay the hell away from yupo. Seriously.

It's fine, hon. Watercolours get easier with use...
