Refletindo

rainyAquarela no papel arches 300g. O plano era fazer o cara da frente pulando uma poça d’água, entretanto, mais parece estar dançando. São os chamados ‘acidentes felizes’ da pintura.

My Harbour obsession

harbour-mangabeira-60
Kind of an imaginary harbour using mostly gray and turquoise colors. Plus, some splash of white and blue using a tooth brush in onder to make a hazy effect.

Cenário imaginário de um porto usando mais cores cinzas e azul turquesa. Respingos de branco com azul na tentativa de criar um efeito nebuloso.

No fear of failure in watercolor. Loose brush strokes while the paper was still soaked and some dry brush afterwards. I guess I was lucky in the end.

Dark waters

dark-waters-sketch

Just warming up with these sketches, planning something bigger.
I had almost throw it away because I hadn’t achieved a good reflection effect and didn’t look good at all. It turns out that I let it dry completely and then, on the following day I had changed my mind. The colors had become less saturated and the reflections now look better. Lesson: Let the watercolor dry before anything else.

A “ideia” inicial era descartar porque não parecia bom. Principalmente os reflexos na água. Mas após secar completamente, no dia seguinte eu mudei de ideia. As cores se tornaram menos saturadas e os benditos reflexos pareciam mais convincentes. Lição: Antes de qualquer coisa, deixe a aquarela secar completamente.

MontMart Liner brush set

brush-4

I used these fantastic long needle brushes for the masts and wires on the bridge. A perfect combination of  fine liner and large mop. Awesome for fine details and precise long lines. Also, it works great for broad brush strokes using the bottom part as you can see below. I have bought my MontMart Set with three sizes from ebay, but it is sold by amazon too.
(Although it is great I recommend only for watercolor because the tip is quite flexible and maybe not stiff enough for other medias such as gouache or oil.)

Usei esses fantásticos e longos pinceis em forma de agulha, nos mastros e cabos da ponte. Excelente para trabalhar com finos detalhes. Muito bom também para traços mais largos e variados usando a parte de baixo com movimentos laterais. Comprei meu MontMart Set  que vem em três tamanhos no ebay *(não fui taxado mas não posso garantir nada). Lembrando que também são vendidos pela amazon.
Recomendo mais para aquarela porque a longa ponta é bem flexível e talvez não firme o suficiente para tinta guache ou óleo, por exemplo.

Bar Life

bar-life-2because sometimes everything you need is a place to relax and free your mind.

I went too sloppy this time. This usually happens when I am not thinking about perfection, but in terms of shapes and style.

Talvez desleixado demais dessa vez. Geralmente acontece quando não penso em perfeição, mas sim em formas e estilo.

Hey,  some of my artworks are now available in my shop at Society 6 and Curioos
Art prints, iphone cases and more that I will be updating soon.

The cathedral study

watercolor study

A catedral era para ser o suposto centro das atenções. Mas aqui, acredito que os trausentes acabaram roubando a cena.

The cathedral was supposed to be the center of interest. But here, I believe that ,the figures might have stolen the spotlight.
