Bye bye for now 🙋🏻

 

Okay! Finally the time has come and we have decided to move to our home country India 🇮🇳 for good. Last few weeks were so busy, so much going on at a time. Packing, gift shopping and all.. what not! Now we are all set to go back. 
 
I’m full of mixed emotions. I know I’m going to miss so many things badly but this how life is, you have to keep moving and keep improving. But glad and excited at the same time as I’ll be meeting my family and friends almost after 3 years. Routine will change soon, new job new responsibilities. We bought a new apartment there, so I have to decorate that as well. 
 
Okay let me tell you one more things, as I mentioned above I haven’t met my family in long time. So everyone out there is asking us when are you coming? when are you coming? 😀  We – me and my husband haven’t informed our families about our move. We are planning to give them a surprise. I’m sure they will be thrill to see us. Super excited to see everyone’s reaction 🤣 
 
Considering all this I’ve decided to take a short break from my blog. I promise I’ll be back soon, once things settle down. Will let you about the journey and all. 😀  I might post few quick doodle on my Instagram. We can catch up there. 
 
About Painting: I started this Pink Water Lily In The Pond painting long time back, I could finish it last week. You might have seen some work in progress photos on my IG. Here is a completed version. I’ve used White Nights Colors for this one.
Below are some progress photographs.

Poppies

Oh yes poppies again 😀 I had fun painting these loose poppies. You can see a small video clip on my Instagram @artbysnehal.  I’ve used Sakura koi colors for this one. It was very quick, just took 10-12 minutes. 😀

Happy weekend!

Flower bunch 💐

Here is a flower bunch I panted on leather textured paperThis piece of paper is with me since my college days. Finally I used it after many years. Earlier I used to do my art assignments on this paper with Poster colors. They are opaque colors so this paper could easily handle multiple layers.

It was fun painting on different paper. Happy Weekend 😀

Tiny Me

Today I have something different from watercolors, but it’s little interesting so thought of sharing with you.

I have wanted to do self-portrait illustration since long time. I took a Skillshare class of my favorite illustrator Ryan Putnam – Thanks Ryan for the class.

I always used pen tool for illustrations but in this case it was way faster and easier to use the line tool. My face is little oval and my dimples show when I smile. I emphasized these features in my avatar! It was fun trying variations almost in every single part right from eyes to hairstyle. I have used Sketch App for this illustration.

Below are the couple of iterations I went through.

These are the two semi finals I arrived at after hundreds of iterations 😆 lol

Finally I ended up with this one 😀

If you want to see more of my design work you can visit my portfolio here.

Actually I wanted to ask you guys, If you don’t mind can you please tell me How and Where do you sell your art online? I know few websites like ETSY but they support only limited countries like US, UK, Canada and few more. I’ve a plan of selling my watercolor prints, so just wanted to know more about it.

If you want you can email me on snehal.kank@gmail.com or you can just visit my contact page here.

Thank you so much for reading the long post. 🙂

These days I have decided to try to paint without pencil drawing. I mean skipping the drawing stage and start directly with paints. I was pretty happy with the results 😀

You can see the work in progress video clip on my Instagram Art a/c here.

I have bunch of used watercolor papers and I really don’t wanted to just throw them away. So I decided to use them with their backside. This one is painted with Sakura Koi colors on the back of the old painting.

I think it’s a good way to save papers and continue your quick practice work or some rapid doodles.  😉  😀  What say?
