I was inspired to create this illustration by ZeroUv. They make such cool and fun sunglasses at very affordable prices and you can check them out here. I also wanted to show you some of the cool glasses they make so I posted a picture below. Let me know what you think.
One of the questions I often get asked is why I chose watercolor as my preferred medium. The obvious reason is that I like watercolor natural translucent quality, which is perfect for creating ethereal illustrations.
Another characteristic of this medium is that with watercolor is not really possible to plan out how the painting will turn out and that’s the beauty of this technique. When color dries out it actually looks lighter than when it’s wet and the way colors beautifully blend together is always a pleasant surprise.
I find painting with watercolor extremely liberating as with time it taught me to enjoy the process rather than worry about the final result.
