Elephant & dolphins

Finished the elephant-lady with mandala on  the back!

 

This is my customer’s mom, having her children and grandchildren with her all the time. A cover-up/rework + added some more dolphins.


Weekend with anchors & watercolours

A busy weekend.

Started with this nice & minimal anchor.

This guy is a guitar player in several bands and also an guitar technician, just opened his shop as well: urvamusic.com
Has and G-clef & F-clef. I wanted this piece to be something different, not “just-another-lettering”, so I added some watercolour feel to it:

 

A piece with the pink sky. Going to add some more contrast to it after a while, will post a new photo when finished.

Primary colours, nice & minimal once again:

Dragon and the bees

This is one of my old works, did it in about 2001 or 2002. The client now wishes to get rid of the green and to add the dragon, in blueish tones. I will also rework the bees and surroundings & will add some colour to them as well. As it was with the roses few posts ago – I haven’t done dragons few years as well and I totally love doing them again.

Here you go, this is how far we got this time:

Meanwhile, freehand sketch:

And this is how it looked before:

The same guy has on the other arm one other old work of mine as well, this is from the 2003 I reckon:
