Watercolor Travelogue Sketchbook

WOW! I've been missing in action, I know but believe me this year has been crazier than ever. With a hunt for a job and having to work allot I've barely have time to do my Art and Crafts which is sad. But any who this is what I did a little while back when I've got into water coloring.

I'm getting more into water coloring and drawing more so maybe this is a good opportunity for me to enhance my art by using a media I've haven't use in years. I have the love and enthusiasm for drawing and this is what I really like to do, having the right media for this study is great cause I can be free to draw and color in a fun and awesome way. This is my sketchbook for water coloring and sketch things I see when I'm out exploring the World so hopefully you will like it :)

Princess Leia is Among Stars

I'm very sad about the news of Carrie Fisher passing away yesterday Dec 27, 2016. Being a Star Wars fan for so so long watching this true heroin of Hollywood for so many years was an amazing childhood experience. Ironically I was watching yesterday Episode VI cause I been watching all the movies again since I've seen Rogue One this past Dec 24, 2016 when I've read the news on someone posting on Instagram that she passed away, even though I knew  a couple of days before that she had a massive heart attack and was hospitalize with a very delicate condition.

I've grew up watching these movies specially the first 3 movies that George Lucas made back in the late 70's and the 80's, he gave life to a beautiful Princess named Leia Skywalker and from then history was done. Her come back on the Force Awakens movie gave me chills it was just perfect and the right timing for it, not to mention the cool and stunning Leia in Rogue One that gave me more chills. We will see her one more time, according to what I've read Carrie Fisher will be performing as Princess Leia in the Episode VIII she was able to finish at least that part of the story this year.

This Princess will be forever in my heart, even though the character was a strong young women with a strong passion for Leading the Rebel Alliance and bring peace to the Galaxy and a history that follow the Skywalker's Carrie Fisher had a very struggled real life, now she is at peace between stars and reunited with actor Kenny Baker who role was R2-D2 two souls that were together in the movies and now in the stars.

RIP beautiful Princess, Made The Force be With You...

Watercolor Fox with Kuretaki Gansai Tambi and Crayons

I haven't water color in while and I'm loving it more and more everyday, in this video I've sketched a fox and color it with watercolor pencils and my new Kuretaki Gansai Tambi  12 water color set, after allot of research and some knowledge I've decided that this was a good set to start back on water coloring. How ever I've shown you how I've been working with Distress markers and now I got a new set of Spectrum Noir Aqua that I'm looking forward to start with. But coloring with the Kuretaki has been a great a experience so far, can't wait to show you more of my illustrations and art.

I've also dedicated this video to a fox I came across here in YouTube making some research on how to color a fox, this cute fox passed away a few months ago. His name was Ron Ron and I can't express how cute this animal was.
