I learnt a lot about oil paints this year and found that I LOVE them a lot. The first oil piece I ever made is the one of the beautiful sphinx cat. I’ve just begun creating oil paintings on canvases and in my sketchbook in hopes of completing a series before the year ends. I took to studying Vincent Van Gogh’s art style by recreating a famous portrait painting of his on canvas.
I’ve also pushed my limits with acrylics – the artwork titled Decomposition is the largest piece I’ve painted yet, measuring 24″X30″ and taking 5 months to complete.
“What is done in love is done well.”
– Vincent Van Gogh
I’ve never been a digital artist, somewhat lacking the patience to switch between so many tools on Photoshop and using the Wacom (which I never really got the hang of). However, I got the 2018 iPad and Apple Pencil this year, together with Procreate and I have fallen in love with digital art. You can read my review here.
Aside from dabbling in yet another new art medium, I also worked on my watercolor and people drawing skills, particularly a series of witches I started at the beginning of the year. Some of the witches below are available for purchase as stickers as well. It’s a continuous series I hope to carry on to the next year.
