Love is the warmest colour

Omgggggg. It's been ages since I last posted. Things have got very hectic recently because so many deadlines have been coming up and I turned 16 a few weeks ago. I went to Scotland in the half term which was AMAZING. It's so beautiful there in winter and it was nice to see how different it looks to in summer. I only went up for a few days because of mock exam revision but I did manage to take some good photos.
(btw don't be fooled by the blue skies in these bc it was actually very rainy most of the time)

 

In other news, after hours of slaving away, I have finally finished my (unfinished) drawing. I'm really happy with how it's turned out and I've entered into an exhibition so hopefully *fingers crossed* I might get in. Here's a picture of me next to it to give you some idea of the scale...


ALSO I FOUND OUT I MIGHT GET TO GO TO JAPAN WHICH HAS BEEN MY LIFELONG DREAM AND OMG I'M SO EXCITED.

  13. Can't get my head around the fact you drew this, it's honestly so incredible it looks like a photo! Scotland looks super pretty as well, I've been before but always when I was younger and would be wicked to visit again.

  14. Your art is insanely beautiful! I wish I could shade as well as you.
    Sorry if I bother you but I am also doing art and I am trying to find my place on the internet and I was wondering if you would mind checking out my work.
    I am working with watercolours and ink and charcoal and I would love to hear what you are thinking about it.
    Best regards,
