For Real.


These are some paintings I did in gouache and water colour while I was staying at my grandma's place for a week near the end of the summer.

Back in high school, we did self portraits using a mirror and I always found it so difficult. So I gave it a try now with more experience from life drawing in college and whatnot and the result was much more satisfactory. The second one is my sister and her husband's (OH so belated) wedding gift and the last one was a painting I just felt like doing after looking at a bunch of Frazetta books. I actually used markers and pencil crayons on that one, but I didn't like some of it in real life so I edited some of it in Photoshop. Painting in real life feels a lot more rewarding. I want to do it more often.
