Welcome back, my feathered friends! 🐔
(I hope you’re ready for a very image heavy post. 😅)
It’s nearly the first Sunday of 2020, which will be the second Sunday I’ve been assured off after my clinic’s hours changed. This permits me to have one regular free day for art, which makes scheduling more predictable. (That definitely helps my sanity!)
Hey, y’all! I’m so excited to share these recent changes with you! The multitude of summer thunderstorms the past month has given me plenty of time to buckle down and make some art. (Also, to do lots of thinkin’ and plannin’ for my Vulture’s Pugmark journey.) It’s taken more time than I would have expected to get my thoughts together for this entry, but here we go!
Welcome to our second walkthrough! 😁
This painting was a gift for my partner’s mom; R’s family was very accommodating, especially considering they had to speak in English around me as I do not know Danish. …yet. (Other than a couple words to harass R with.) R’s dad also got a painting, which I’ll show at the end; I didn’t get progress shots of that one though.
My name is Grai Swan, and I’m a hobby artist who specializes in ink and watercolor paintings with a little digital work thrown in. I lost my inspiration to create for several years, but thanks to encouragement from my fantastic artsy partner, it’s been coming back. My aim is to produce whimsical paintings with realistic detail, and you’ll find a lot of nature influence present through my gallery.
To start my blog off, I thought I’d walk you through the progress shots of my most recent painting. (Hint: It’s the one in the featured image at the beginning of this post!)
