Sketchbook: Watercolor Illustrations

fashion illustration, watercolor art, fashion art by Elena FayI think all artists once in a while experience fear of a blank canvas. Every time I started working on a commissioned project, I was afraid that I will ruin my nice smooth watercolor paper and I couldn’t start working-just kept staring on a paper. I started trying different things to overcome this fear and the best method that works for me is doing quick messy painting in my old sketchbook where I don’t have to worry about expensive paper and how the painting will turn out. You can find the video on my Instagram @dcinstyle. If you are an artist/ writer/blogger, how do you deal with this feeling when you don’t know where to start?

Sketchbook: Fall Colors

watercolor illustration, fashion illustration, fashion art by Elena Fay, DC fashion illustratorThis summer is surprisingly not as hot as I expected. Sometimes it rains nonstop and this weather reminds me of fall so when I saw this photo with lots of fall colors on Camille’s Insta page I knew it will be in my sketchbook soon:)

Hope you have a beautiful sunny day

***************

Это лето на удивление не такое жаркое как обычно, я конечно не любитель жары и духоты но и дождь меня не радует. Иногда дождь просто донимает своей назойливостью, вот и сегодня по окну барабанят капли а вечером объявляют ураган! Когда я наткнулась на фото Камиллы в ее Инста ленте я знала что в моем скетчбуке скоро появится новая иллюстрация с множеством ярких осенних красок.
Надеюсь у вас прекрасная погодаwatercolor illustration, fashion illustration, fashion art by Elena Fay, DC fashion illustrator

You Can’t be Sad While Eating Ice Cream

ice cream watercolor illustration, fashion illustration, ice-cream sketch, ice-cream paintingYou can’t be sad while eating ice cream, don’t you agree?!!

Lately I’ve been obsessed with food sketching. Cupcakes, macarons and ice cream are all over my sketchbook and there is a good explanation to it. Being 30 weeks pregnant, I try to avoid sweet treats and to satisfy my cravings, I paint these delicious cuties:)

I’ve been posting my sketches a lot and I was wondering if you would be interested in seeing tutorials or step by step photos of my work process. Would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions in your comments.
