July’s OIC Portrait Day

Armed with my $1 mini watercolour box, brushpen and various drawing implements, I took part in my second OIC Portrait Day at the Maad Market at Red Dot Museum AKA Monthly Stress Reliever/Practically Free Life Drawing Session.

DIY Watercolour Box

It was great (and terrifying) to try out painting with watercolour for the first time in years. Picked up some good tips from the artists around me as well. Probably would not have tried it have it not been for the Full Colour theme of this month’s Portrait Day.

I was looking for one of those tiny watercolour sets around Bras Basah,

2. Forgot to photograph, despite bringing a camera and taking pictures of practically everything else.

Ah well.. I wrote the link to 4dpencil on the back of the drawing, so if you two happen to find your way here I’d really appreciate it if you could

Overall I’m still pretty slow, but faster than last month, which is always a good thing. Then again in this case I usually budgeted 5 – 10 minutes on establishing the proportion in pencil before haphazardly trying out different colouring approaches in watercolour. I feel like I need to do more eye studies, cause most times the eyes I’m drawing are kinda.. uh.. the stereotypical eye and not really that nice to behold. In some instances like this one I think it worked, but for others it’s borderline anime eye syndrome.

It was pretty fun as expected. I dragged two of my project group members along, my mom, aunt and cousin turned up out of the blue, and on top of that 2 of my friends from poly happened to be there as well. And to the one that was sick and couldn’t make it, well there’s always next month yeah?

    OMGWTF I TYPED UP SOMETHING AND UR BLOG ATE IT

    Your mum? aunt? Cousin? Groupmates? Poly friends? Whoaa.

    >>Picked up some good tips from the artists around me as well.

    Do share, for sharing is to caring as to caring is to sharing.

    Portrait 04 (the one that you posted) of the man is def my favourite of yours. Can feel the volume around the chin, cheek and hair area. OK I will snap out of Conceptart mode now and go develop borderline anime eye syndrome — something that I greatly lust for.

    PS: How many portraits did you sell? Can pass me the money?

    PPS: WILL THIS COMMENT BE DELETED

  2. Who the heck is the commentor above? Hahahah your friend? And oooh perhaps one day I’ll go and see see the event… WHEN I FREAKING GET FINISHED WITH SCHOOL PROJECTS WARGH.

  3. Oh yeah…

    Ps. OOOH, pretty watercolour stuff! What IS that brush?! In built water for a watercolour brush? Cause it looks like it is and THAT is plenty cool. Do you squeeze the brush to increase dilution or something?

  4. Hi
