Drawing Picturresque from YouTube

Before I was obsessed with those YouTube painting channels, I was obsessed with those YouTube makeup channels. And among those who are very famous, I find this channel, PICTURRESQUE I Regina. I fall in love with her videos at once. Every video feels like a story and full of inspiration, especially this one, PAT MCGRATH MOTHERSHIP IV : DECADENCE SWATCHES + LOOK.

And I wanted to draw this look. So here it is.

Well I was planning on some complicated background but my drawing tablet was down at that moment. I tried trouble shooting for days and searched for a resolution but none of them worked. I ended up returning my new tablet and go back to my previous one. So as I wanted to finish this drawing I just go easy on the background. I hope this could work.

If you like this piece, please also check out her channel. I’m sure you would find something inspirational. (づ ̄ 3 ̄)づ

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
