Watercolor Love

I have been so inspired by Bella Foster and Caitlin McGauley's watercolors for Kate Spade and Tory Burch respectfully.

Last summer, I experimented with painting Lilly prints (as seen here). I thought I should upgrade to people. But I was super nervous. Let me know what you think!




I loved this picture of Soccer Mom and me. Super cheesy tourist shot... but I love the colors and most importantly I love our smiles!





Okay, Okay. I know I cropped Soccer Mom out. But hear me out. It was my first "person" painting (well watercolor at least). And I was super nervous. So I thought that I'd try it out and if it messed up at least I'd only butcher myself. You know? It has to be a bad omen to paint someone badly right????


Alrighty. There you have it. I know I'm no Picasso, but I love to paint. It's such a good release!

PS Don't forget about the Nico and LaLa GIVEAWAY!
