Happy Easter!!

i have not been posting in a while, it has been crazy busy at work and not much time for anything else. But now I’m enjoying a four day weekend and in a couple days I will be travelling to my home country for a few days. 

I have gotten a new set of pencils, this time I went for Derwent inktense water colour pencils, they give a vibrant colour when you apply water on your drawing. Today I have been topping up a few of my previous drawings and I am happy with the result.

I have also been commissioned to illustrate a children’s book, which I’m very happy about. At the moment I can’t post any pictures of it but perhaps at a later stage. So things are finally starting to move forward. To promote yourself it’s not always easy but my advise is to never give up 🙂

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!!

    1. That is what I’ve been wanting to do in a long time now, it feels great. It is a lot of practice involved and going through a phase where I need to bring the child out, hence all these drawings, but it’s so fulfilling 🙂

  3. hello Eva,
    so glad you got a book to illustrate, that is wonderful. I also enjoy these pencils, very much. They have such wonderful colors. I called the company to ask about light fastness and they said the art should not be displayed where sun will hit it, which really is best for most art. Is this your blog now? I had trouble finding it.

    1. Hi Tammie, thank you for stopping by. Yes this is the blog I use now and it’s basically about art and my work. I love the inktense pencils they give a deeper colour.
