Weekly Fluff Puppy Illustration

Is there anything cuter than a puppy with big sweet eyes? I’m a cat person (my Instagram stories are all about my fluffy cat 🙂 but every time I see puppies, my heart just melts. When one of my regular clients asked me to sketch her little friend, I could’t be happier!!! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve probably seen this already, if not, check out the work in progress video.

I think it’s obvious that I’m a huge fan of Instagram:) and their weekly series #Weekly Fluff is my absolute favorite! To bring you a little dose of cuteness I’ll be sharing some watercolor cuties too. And… to spice it up a little bit, I’ll start a weekly # party: woo hoo, who doesn’t like a party, right? So share the photos of your adorable pets on Instagram using hashtag #artsyweeklyfluff and randomly chosen winner will appear in my sketchbook!!!

If you are an artist, what is your favorite thing to draw/paint/sketch???

Sweet Friday-Sketchbook

Урррра Пятница! Не знаю почему я так радуюсь окончанию недели, ведь выходных у мам все равно никогда нет но тем не менее в этот день настроение всегда на все 100%!

Меня часто спрашивают возможно ли работать акварелью на недорогой бумаге, ведь некачественная бумага может сильно потрепать нервы. Для важных заказов и проектов я конечно же выбираю проверенные мною материалы (hot pressed watercolor paper Arches or Fabriano and Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor paints) но для скетчей мне если честно жалко портить дорогую бумагу. Я долго искала недорогую альтернативу. Меня приятно удивил Canson sketchbook, ведь он даже не предназначен для работ с акварелью но результат меня порадовал- краски впитываются отлично, никаких размывов не остается и иллюстрации получаются яркими и живыми.

Wooohoo it’s finally Friday! I’ve no idea why am I so excited about it -moms don’t have a day off, right?) But I still love Friday:)

Sometimes people ask me what kind of paper do I use and if it’s too expensive to buy a nice quality watercolor paper. I already have some brands that I tested (hot pressed watercolor paper Arches and Fabriano & Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor paints) and I know that the result will be awesome so I use these brands for important projects and commission work. I try to sketch every day and, to be honest with you, I would be broke if I used Arches paper all the time:) For quick warm up sketches and doodles I discovered this Canson sketchbook (it’s not even a watercolor paper) but illustrations always turn our colorful and fresh.

Всем отличных выходных!fashion illustrations, DC fashion blogger, Russian illustrator in Washington, art blog fashion illustration, russian blogger, Russian artist in USA, watercolor art sketchbook, artist, DC fashion illustratorfashion illustration, russian blogger, Russian artist in USA, watercolor art BLOGLOVIN’ / PINTERESTINSTAGRAM / ETSY
