Inktober 2017 – Day 4: Underwater

inktober

I knew there would be days like this, but it’s still frustrating. 

Today’s entry is a little rushed. I finished late from work and was just so tired. I decided to just use the copic markers today and avoid black altogether. The more I added the more overworked it looked so I decided that today would be a simple entry. It was nice not to have to think too much about what to do for the entry, since “underwater” fits my nature theme nicely.

Birthday Watercolours

Painting, watercolour

The birthday of my colleagues fall only 3 days apart, so to celebrate both of their birthdays I painted these for them:

Both are specific to each of the women. I know they’re twee and a bit rushed, but it’s all good practice. Doing the lettering was scary, but I’m pleased overall with how it came out.

I really wish I felt more confident with sharing art (or well, this site) with people I know. I know I’m gonna have to overcome that, but it’s so much easier to share with strangers.
