So, I decided I’d finally put my new watercolors to use. I did this quick sketch of fellow Miami fashion blogger Ria Michelle, as she’s been attending lots of Miami Fashion Week events and posting lots of photos! I overlaid the watercolor as a last-minute decision, but did it in Photoshop instead of directly on the drawing.

I’ll definitely be doing more of these of other bloggers and some editorials over the coming weeks. It’s so nice to get back into my art mode, as I’ve been taking a little break since school let out.

This is such a beautiful illustration Melanie! I’m happy that you’ll be sharing more of these on your blog! :)

Thank you so much Nnenna! I’ll be working on some over the weekend! There are so many things I wanna try, but I’m always so intimated by watercolor. This is actually my second time using them and I just kinda went with it. We’ll see how it develops!
