Little Old-riding-hood and Little Red-need-no-hood
Gouaches from yesterday and the day before
Don't know what's up with Little Red Riding Hood theme. 
On the left she is really old and on the right she doesn't even need a hood, since her hair is so beautiful
Loved working on green vs orange/red harmonies. It really makes things pop

Tightening up and here come the girls
Okay, so these are two gouache sketches done yesterday and today (I've actually just finished the second one)
Guess it's obvious that I worked a bit harder on them than I usually do. Now I force myself to spend more time on these sketches and analyse the tones and colours more, which is quiet difficult as I often hurry to put down all the colours and then just hope that it'll do. It won't)))
With these I actually still covered the paper pretty early, but I paid more attention to gradations, such as in the windows with the first one, or in the background with the second. And so when I had all the pieces of this "mosaic" down I had an easier time rendering (not too much, since these are just sketches)
Another thing I noticed is that I felt more relaxed and a lot calmer, which is due to all that stress I experienced with my earlier quick sketches, I guess. 
And, by the way, these sketches become a bit bigger when I spend more time on them. So, I  am actually slowly moving towards my first fully rendered gouache piece, which is really exciting) Hope to get there in a few weeks :)

My new relationship with capricious gouache
These two days were a mess. I managed to make 3 gouache sketches. I've changed the procedure a bit. Now I'm trying to get even deeper into colour, I spend more time on each of the sketches (approx. 30-40 min.), they're a bit bigger and I allow myself to rework the parts I don't like. So far so good, but I really hope to have more time to work on my colours and to play with gouache more

Gouaches from yesterday and today
I must confess, I love painting scenes with people/animals much more than just landscapes.

JulieMi's Profile Picture

Julia Mikheeva
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Russia
I am a young illustrator, still looking for my personal artistic style.

My inspirations are: 20th century great American illustrators, old masters from 15th-century artists to contemporary painters; music of all sorts; myths and legends, literature (mostly satirical (I love Wilde's plays), classics of adventure and detective stories (Conan Doyle, Christie, Jules Verne and many others)

I am interested in working in such fields as: book, magazine and newspaper illustration, character design, animalistic genre. I'm also very fond of art that has great mood, so, I guess, concept art should be called among my interests

I primarily train in traditional media (though I will surely someday try working digitally). I love drawing (with any material I can find), watercolour and gouache, pen and ink and also pastels (so far I'm just admiring great masters of it, not making much progress with the technique myself).

Thanks!
I'm very fond of your work, I especially love the way you incorporate varying line weight in your art, so that the pictures look lively and dynamic. Great work!
