A huge huge thank you to everyone who commissioned a little watercolor from me over the last few weeks - they were really a joy to work on, with some good challenges along the way, and I got in quite a few solid hours of practice. Your support helps so much to maintain my practice as every penny gets put back into the studio: good quality watercolor supplies can be terribly expensive, as well as trying to save up for a scanner so I don't have to resort to fighting with my cheap 50mm lens and camera to get clear images of traditional pieces. Above all else, it means an incredible amount to me when people like what I do and are happy with what I make for them - it's truly humbling when your work means something to someone, or brings them any kind of joy, and I am forever thankful for the privilege of that experience <3
I will eventually re-open commissions but I'd like to offer a few different tiers, keeping the small 5x7" simple ones at the price they're at but offering larger and more complex options too with a PWYW approach, as well as some affordable digital work. In the meantime though, I feel I need to get some practice in regarding backgrounds as they're a major weak point for me, and work on some neglected personal projects. They'll be back eventually, with some more options, so stay tuned!
Thanks again everyone - I can't tell ye how much it means <3
