Tools, work spaces, rough edges. A round-up of a few unshared Instagram posts over the course of the last few weeks.

The summer art’s fruits. Lots of little sketches and paintings that go unposted… Purple tree splatter after watching Guardians of the Galaxy.

Totoro watercolor study of the night, 15 minutes of painting reduced to four fifteen second Instagram hyperlapses. My profile is littered with it. Top of the line!

Attaching one of hyperlapse videos from tonight’s watercolor session.

'Void Ripper' is the second oil painting I've finished in a really long time. It's sitting in my living room drying right now. You can see a process shot from early July on this blog. It’s ended up less abstract than it started, I can dig that. A sky and a tree is truer to my internal compass of what I paint.

I’m typing in simple English right now since I just recovered from a week long flu, well, barely, still coughing and lethargic. Luckily, getting to the point again where I feel annoyed if I’m not entirely productive. I don’t know if I have anything else to say, just trying to not feel so craptastic about the world and this year on a personal level.

My dear boyfie got my this art book for my birthday last year. This is me finally putting it to good use with some watercolor studies, :D

An evening piece inspired by faraway places.

I painted some animals!

Watercolor sessions from this past weekend.

I enjoyed Shovel Knight!

I thought I’d have to grow up and give up games to succeed as an adult… NOPE. Don’t give up the things you love! What I would go back in time 6 years ago and shake myself out of such a silly thought.

Edit: Squeee, Yacht Club Games shared the piece.

Obtained a set of metallic watercolors. Colored an old Kiki sketch with them. Pleased with the mixed results… Though a bit of me likes the minimal version as well. Too bad with physical mediums, you can’t just hide the layer and output two pieces!

This is an abstract piece inspired by the camphor tree in My Neighbor Totoro. Got to use my blue/green Zigs for it. Happy!

Happy little river and trees.

Finished oil painting that I started last August. Three visits home ago I made it to a studio session with my Mama. Today we went again and I finished this piece.
