February is here! Let’s take a look at work done this week. In this post I will only show what I’ve done in February. I have shown some of this week’s work (particularily marker illustration of Mexico and pastel) in my Month’s Report post made earlier this week.
February began with
My additional pastel sketch this week was based on one of the photos I took in the gardens not far away from where I live. I seriously can’t wait for spring.
Watercolor is this week’s star material. Of course I started doodlewashed challenge, plus did a sketch for Natalie Ratkovski’s sketch flashmob.
I have done one more travel sketch, this time for Canada
I also made a small illustration for a sketch marathon that Lisa Krasnova is hosting this month. The theme was “Ice and Snow”, so here’s my snowy contribution
Papercutting this week was merged with a project done with my kids. One of Russian art schools does a free course dedicated to Harry Potter. So we did Patronus Collages. My girl did a rabbit, and a dragon for my son. I went a bit overboard with details. So yeah, sometimes simpler is better.
Illustrated Journal this week was full of color.
My most favorite work this week is my digital drawing of a peacock for 52 weeks illustration challenge
There was a sad lack of colored pencil practice and I did not get to my perspective and color studies, boo. I also have to admit that, given that family’s schedule in February is quite demanding, I will probably have to abandon my January schedule and embrace “do what you can” mindset. I want to do so much, but there is simply no way to do it all.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week!
