Fall watercolour illustrations


✨Hi everyone! This is my first time experiencing autumn, seeing the colourful leaves in real sparked all the creative vibes in me. Honestly, at first, I was worried I came here at the wrong time because of the cold, coming from a tropical country the sound of temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius worries me because I easily get sick. But I’m well taken care of here, and I'm taking vitamins so all healthy and good so far. Anyways, I was worried so much about experiencing cold that I forgot the best part of this season, AUTUMN!


✨I decided to dedicate my weekends or evenings doing watercolour paintings just to loosen up, and I want to share the beautiful Leuven

This one is a watercolour study of Kiki's house from Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service, I just thought of adding that here. I started working on this during the creative group meet-up that I joined here in Leuven, and so far I met beautiful artists and made new friends.


✨ I hope you like this one. I'm trying to explore more mixed-media stuff, and doing some traditional studies. I am super happy as well with my Prisma coloured pencils, they are super worth the price and the colours blend nicely and vibrantly.


✨ Here's some behind the scene when I did the reel video. I am still waiting for the tripod I ordered, but I thought of showing this too haha!



✨ I enjoy the beauty and the opportunity to keep learning and growing with my creative journey. As a self-taught artist and a freelance illustrator, there are times I wish to have a shortcut to be better, or sometimes wonder if I made the right career path, what if this is a mistake?


✨ But a reminder again that this is the best part; the journey, learning is what makes life and every success worth it!


✨ Here's a closing quote:

There are no mistakes in life, only lessons - The monk who sold his Ferrari
