A couple months ago, I started putting my art to use, designing custom tattoos for people. I’ll be sharing these here and there because I think they’re fun. So many of them have special meaning to their owners.

The request for this custom tattoo design included:

  • sunny, breezy California poppies
  • two open flowers and one bud
  • big, fat bumble bees buzzing around
  • watercolor look

Here are the variations of the design I came up with.

Feel free to get in touch if you need a custom tattoo designed.

 

I’m stepping away from my norm here (just for a moment, I promise) and sharing a slightly different kind of art I’ve been exploring. I’ve enjoyed pencil sketches since high school but watercolors are new for me. The video is a combination of real time and time lapse. I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s the pencil drawing before watercolors were applied.

And the final painting.
