Christmas Art | The Three Wise Men

The three wise men. Of course, many of us have heard about these three wise men of also known as the Magi. You can read their story in Matthew 2:1-12.

I used a public domain picture as the reference for the wise men. I used the outline instead of the full image. I am very careful with my reference images and always make sure I use public domain images and not something I randomly grab from the internet. Copyright infringement is a serious matter. I have seen many artists got into trouble simply because they took this matter lightly or ignorant of the fact that they can get caught. So to my fellow artists who are reading this post, guys, I highly encourage you to not violate anyone’s copyright in your work. Getting caught and ruining your reputation is not worth it. We all work hard to promote our work in hope to make a living from what we love to do the most, so please be careful where you source your images/references.

The rest of the illustration on this piece is purely from my imagination.

Here are the progress photos:

Christmas Art | Nativity Scene Doodle Art

The third painting in my Christmas/holiday themed series. Any Christmas art is incomplete without the nativity scene. Jesus is the reason for the season. “How silently the wondrous gift is given”. It’s a lyric from the Christmas song “O Little Town of Bethlehem” by Phillips Brooks, 1835-1893. I always like this part of the lyric because the GIFT truly is given in complete humility. No pomp and pageantry, just a helpless newborn cared for by a couple of unwed nervous teenagers. Joseph probably was in his 20s but Mary was a teenager.

If you are wondering why didn’t I add the quote digitally, well, I am a traditional artist and I want to maintain that “organic” look and feel of traditional art, so I wrote the quote by hand.

Here are the process photos:

The design is already up in my shops (Redbubble and Society6), and feel free to check them out and support me ūüėČ

Watercolor Art | The Ballerina

Another old painting uploaded to my shops. This ballerina stencil painting was also from a couple of years ago. I have four files full of paintings. I spent the large part of 2015-2017 working on my¬†art and hardly able to focus on the marketing side of things. And that was one reason¬†why this blog was neglected back then. I started to upload new materials to my shops since September. I think it’s about time I spread my wings and make my art more “commercialized”. However, other than posting my art I am looking forward to creating art tutorials and share them with my subscribers starting 2019 ūüėČ

Watercolor Art | Colorful Face

I am still working on my Christmas/holiday season art series. So far five paintings have been completed. I aim to paint five more before 10 December. I know it’s very little to some people’s standard but I work on my own pace, not comparing myself to others and just enjoy what I do. Here are five of the paintings already completed for this series.

Other than working on the new paintings, I am going through my old paintings and upload them to my shops. Here is one of those paintings. I did this about a couple of years ago.

And some products in my shops – Redbubble and Society6.

Christmas Art | Reindeer Doodle Art

Now that I have completed my totem animal series, I am free to work on my Christmas/Christianity and holiday themed art. Yesterday I posted about a painting I painted three months ago which I also included in this new series. And today I am sharing my newest painting – the Christmas reindeer. It’s not Rudolph unfortunately because he doesn’t have a red nose LOL. It feels good to paint in my regular style using the fine liner and watercolor. This feels a lot more comfortable and familiar.

Here are the progress photos of this painting. The original colors are very different from the scanned image. Like for example the teal sections you see above were actually in blueish green as you can see below.

And here is the completed painting. What do you think of it? Please leave your comments below. (Previously I disabled the comment section on my site due to thousands of spams I received from desperate individuals promoting their businesses).

Watercolor Art | Because He First Loved Us

Now that I have completed my totem animal series, I have moved on to other projects! Currently, I am working on religious and Christmas/holiday themed paintings. So far I have completed 3 paintings but I thought I want to include this simple piece in my latest collection. I painted this about three months ago and posted it on my Steemit blog. You can read the post here: Watercolor Doodle | Love (1 John 4:19).

Here are the progress photos:

I uploaded this design in my Redbubble and Society6 shops. I think they will make great gifts to encourage someone this Christmas/holiday season ūüėČ

Totem Animal Series | Complete Collection of Paintings

Here are¬†the complete collection of my totem animal series. I love colorful art but in this series, I ‚Äúforced‚ÄĚ myself to work using one (max 3) colors. I love the simplicity of these paintings and they are very different from the detailed style that I am used to. When I worked on them there were moments when I felt so tempted to add more details because I thought they were too bare. But the objective of this series was to learn to be more minimalistic; one simple subject matter and limit of max 3 colors.

As mentioned in previous posts, these paintings are available on products in my Redbubble and Society6 shops. Do feel free to check them out and give me a little support ūüėČ

Watercolor Art | Tiger!

And finally here is the final painting in my totem animal series – the tiger! It takes me more than a month to share all of these paintings. If it weren’t for the two weeks break due to our (my kids and I) illness, I probably able to share them all by the end of October. Anyway, I am glad I can move on to other art projects LOL. Christmas and holiday season is coming so I will be sharing art with holiday/religious theme in the coming days.

Here are the progress photos for this painting:

And here are some sample products with this painting on them. They are available in my Redbubble and Society6 shops.
