Sweet Family Portrait

Every time I get a chance to work on a sweet family portrait like this one, I get really excited! Knowing that this custom watercolor artwork will be hanging in this sweet girl’s room and will be cherished for many years, makes me really happy.custom watercolor portrait by Elena Fayfashion illustration of mom and a babycustom fashion portrait watercolor family portrait

Here are the art supplies that I used:

Paper: I used Fluid Hot Press Watercolor Paper, 300g, the paper is very smooth and perfect for custom projects. You can find it here .  Here is a similar one

Watercolors: Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors, I bought it here

I hope your week is as beautiful as this project turned out to be!

Thank you so much to all of you who supports my work by purchasing something in my Etsy shop, it really means a lot!!

All I Need Today is Coffee and Bikini

It’s Monday morning, hot hot hot Monday morning and all I can think of is coffee and bikini:)

It’s been forever since I’ve done a Monday Coffee post and I’m excited to get back to playing with coffee in my sketchbook!!

But first I wanted to ask you something… These past few years I loved sharing my projects and behind the scene photos here on my blog and Instagram. But I keep asking myself if people still read blogs? Do you guys read blogs and if the answer is NO, what is your favorite platform??? Feels like with all the social media explosion we get overwhelmed with so much information and blogs are not as popular as before. I’m not saying good buy to my blog, because I really love this little creative corner- the idea of creating new posts always pushes me to experiment and share my little steps with you guys, so I’m going to continue adding new fun content here and I also plan something new!

Last month I published my first Skilshare class and I surprisingly loved creating video content so my next step is YouTube, so we’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck:)
