My first practice portrait was of my dear friend @butter_me_up_cakes 's sweet girls. Definitely still getting the hang of things, but I think it's cute! Considering I haven't really drawn anything since highschool art class, I'm proud of this!
Oscar is a therapy cat that became famous for being able to predict when terminally ill patients were close to death, by choosing to nap next to them a few hours before they died, more info about this lovely boy in my book about death coming soon ...✨
El día que aprenda a dibujar manos va a ser el fin del mundo xd
Así que volvimos con el #drawthisinyourstyle, esta vez con el personaje de @kurboi que me pareció hermoso❤
Pd: estoy probando un nuevo tipo de papel acuarela que compre el otro día, pero es malísimo y no me gustó para nada como me quedó :-\
The day I learn how to draw hands will be the end of the world xd
So we're back with the # drawthisinyourstyle thing, this time with the beautiful @| kurboi's character❤
Ps: I'm trying this new kind of paper that I bought the other day but I don't like it, it's a pretty bad paper :-\ #watercolours#traditionalart#colours#siradraws
I dare say, I am myself quite a "minimalist", finding value in most definitions of the concept. To me personally, minimalism first and foremost is about living intentionally. I’m someone who gets very easily overwhelmed by my surroundings, especially the memories and feelings attached to certain items. I call them my „ghosts“ and I even still struggle with falling asleep amongst them, at times. For many years I lived very lost between piles of clutter. But in my third year of university, when I was an exchange student, I had to share a tiny room in a dorm and make sure I’d somehow be able fit all of my belongings in a suitcase eventually. It was then that I experienced for the first time not only the liberating feeling of letting go, but also the meaning of keeping things. It sounds very spiritual, but I think by letting go of what does not add value, we emphasize the meaning and magic of the things we keep. When you plan on moving abroad, you suddenly realise how much physical belongings can hold you back and stress you out. You think about what really matters and which of your belongings really represent who you are. What ghosts do you want to live with?
Now, I am not saying you should get rid of everything and only keep what fits in one suitcase. But from my experience, decluttering really helps to focus the mind on who you want to be and how you want to live. From a financial and environmental point of view it also made me aware of what I need and how I can waste less. It also turned me into a rather tidy person and it will certainly come in very handy, when I move again. I’ve never read „The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up“, but I can recommend searching for it on Youtube, if you want to get into Decluttering and Organising. (Those videos are my happy place and I love Kondo Marie with all of my heart.)
And yes, I completely fall into the stereotype of dressing mostly in grey and black and beige. The reference for this painting is by @_e_eun though.
