I have finished a watercolour painting for my friend, Ola. I have already posted an article about it here.
The only thing I need now is a nice white or light coloured frame…hmm.. let’s go to TK Maxx maybe I will find something cool 😉 by the way, I love going to TK Maxx even if I do not buy anything…
Okay let’s see… I hope Ola is going to like it, too 🙂
If you would like to have one for yourself or for your friends, family just send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my etsy shop and request a custom order at YoyoArtLab. (there are some similar typography artworks where you can request it and tell me your ideas what you really want on the picture) It is $25 / £15.38 without frame but with FREE SHIPPING worldwide.

The final touch:
After I finished with watercolour I often go back with pencil to give more character and contrast for my painting.
Materials I used:
Eraser: I am a huge fan of Staedtler Mars Plastic (I ordered from Amazon, I think I have got 3 for a very cheap price)
Pencil: 2B Staedtler (for me it feels very soft compare to other 2B pencils, I love it, too)
Paper: it is an extra smooth hot pressed graine satine 300g/m from The Langton (amazing quality… I have bought it from Fielders in Wimbledon. They usually have nice offers, foe example this paper pad was originally £7.50 but that time I bought it for £5.63. I also love the pink haired shop assistant..
Watercolour: I have bought it from Fielders as well. The brand is: Daler-Rowney. It has 12 colours but I only use 7 usually… it is totally perfect for me, it was like around £10 if I remember right, I got it in 2012 and it is already 2014 and I still have a lot in it…
