Waterworld 8x10" watercolour. I had a little breakthrough with this one. I found some questionable looking brushes that Phil's father had passed down to him years ago last week during spring cleaning, and decided to try them out. They are ...

It's a lot of fun to let loose and not worry about perfection. Although, I really need to get back to larger watercolours and oil!

I'm having trouble staying away from landscapes, but I am playing with colour/ realism (at least). Most importantly I'm having a lot of fun making these. 👏

I've veered away from abstract the last two days, but I'll get back to it. I still have ...
My good friend @jaredkerim told me I should do #the100dayproject and so I'll give it a go! I haven't done anything abstract or with mixed media in years. I have a feeling doing mini abstracts will be a great way ...

Oil on canvas 20"x20". Part of my Waterworld series. This was my first time painting with a palette knife and it's SO MUCH FUN. Stay turned for more juicy paintings. 🌏🌊🌕

Chubby purple finch watercolour 5"x5". Feels necessary to break up the landscapes every so often! More chubby birbs with atmospheric backgrounds to come! 🐤🌦
Watercolour and acrylic 8"x10" on 100% cotton Fabriano Acquarello paper. Guise I had a little too much fun with my new Sakura Pen-touch white acrylic marker. 😅
8"x10" watercolour on Fabriano Aquarello watercolour paper (Artistico, 140lb, extra white). Picked up this fantastic paper (comes in a block) a few days ago. It's 100% cotton and absorbs beautifully without breaking. It's texture is lovely as well. 👏
RIP @zaphodstagram. Such a sweet, beautiful little buddy. 💛
"Waterworld Fig.1" watercolour and acrylic on 140lb cold press paper, 9"x12". Trying to finish some of my WIPs' today. This one's inspired by the late Igor Sakharov's stormy seascapes. 🌊

Watercolour study from a few weeks ago. I particularly enjoy this one, it feels like a window into another world.
I'm so jazzed I have today & the next couple of days to paint again! With travel, work, and social ...
We took the train to Quebec City this past weekend for a much needed mini trip to visit close friends. Among other things, we had so much fun exploring & soaking in this gorgeous city. 😍

Winter World 9"x12" #watercolour on 300g cold press. Implementing new techniques with every not-so-classic watercolour landscape I've been painting of late. I learn so much with every piece. 👏

Winter Fields at Sunset 9"x12" #watercolour.
I have a lot to be grateful for lately. My father's recovery from a very high risk surgery is going smoothly. Globally, the #womensmarch protests have made me feel hope for the first time ...
9"x12" watercolour. My first time attempting to paint a classic landscape in watercolour & learned A LOT. It was also my first time trying out the new live video feature, I really liked it! Thanks everyone who popped in to ...
9"x9" oil on canvas paper. Lots of firsts with this one. First time painting moons/ planets in the sky and I LOVED it. There'll definitely be more to come. The paper I used is actually meant for acrylic, but I ...
Stormy seascape oil on canvas 20"x20". I started this one in painting class last semester. I didn't agree when the teacher told me it was finished, so I worked on it for a few more hours today. My mom in-law ...
Before I get knee deep in painting exoplanets, moons & alien landscapes, I really wanted to paint some cute faces. @izzyandthefluff are my favourite little duo!
This was really challenging, and tbh I'm not completely satisfied with it, but it ...
