Bear in space – part one

This is my next project, where I design watercolours pictures to children room. Previous time it was seria girl with braid, but this seria I called “Bear in space”. In this seria at the beginning I created a rocket in bear inside as you can see below.

Seria “Girl with braid” will be still continues – I have many ideas. I took small break to previous seria because I wanted to design stickers to my son’s wardrobe.

I hope you like it!

Girl with braid – part one

I started new serie of childish pictures made of watercolours. First of all I titled “Girl with braid” because I wanted to decorate my children’s room. The goal is to choose the one and change it into stickers on wardrobe. Before I do that I need to try manyof them.

First image which I created was a girl with braid who is making bubbles. It was painted on paper sized A4 with watercolours. I hope you enjoy it!

Newborn metrics for girl

I created newborn metrics for my daughter Urszula.

A name Urszula comes from latin from word ursa which means she-bear. Thats why in the picture I painted bear-ballerina.

In the same style I added features of character typical for woman with the name Urszula: responsible, ambitious, independent, dynamic, happy and outgoing.

All made by watercolours on paper sized A4 and framed.

Sakura trees – part 5 – corrections and details

Last part is to correct meadow – add more flowers and shadow them, paint family on the bridge, add details in some places.

I also added some glossy reflections on river using pearl white. I also wanted to paint something on the sky because I thought it looks empty there. So I first thought about balloon under heads of family. I even started to paint it but client didn’t like it so I had to paint over it. It wasn’t easy because I still saw horizontal brush marks so I painted additional cloud in this place. The effect you can see below:

I varnished my painting and I think my work was done so next step is to drive it into destiny’s place and install it on frame in client’s house. We need to cut off edges and pin on it on prepared frame. This is how it looks at the end:

My advise: if you want to have painting at house which will be covered during using television like in this case – don’t install empty frame. It would be much easier. But we of course handle it. Client was satisfied and happy, so do I.

I hope you enjoy it.

Sakura trees – part 4 – painting grass and river

Next step – painting grass and meadow on first plan. At the beginning I painted green background and later worked on details on grass.

I started from left side of painting. Small grass from faraway was painted by using fan brush but all visible blade of grass was painted manually and separately using normal very thin brush. It took very long period of time. Also I painted edge of river.

Next I tried to detailed meadow at the front of painting. Here glade of grass need to be larger. I also added some flowers. But it isn’t finished work with meadow. Some of planned flowers will be protruded by the river so I painted river before I finish meadow.

Above you can see painted river. I wanted it was very light. On river ducks are swimming. I also made some color on bridge.
