Into the Woods

As I enjoy so much nature and especially flowers, sometimes I like drawing some other natural element. In this case I decided to sketch some kind of succulent. I don’t its name or if it’s really a succulent, but when I spotted it inside Milan’s botanical garden it caught my eye. It’s a real beauty, don’t you think so?

I also added some tree logs, that I left in black and white. They made one of the straight lines that formed the pattern, the other being formed by the succulents. I called it after “Into the Woods” (the musical, not the Disney movie, cause I didn’t like it) cause it gives me some fairytale vibes, don’t you think so?

Into the Woods

I really enjoy trees, woods and everything in between. Actually, as I enjoy nature in every aspect. So  I decided to sketch my personal forest and make a  pattern from it. I draw and colored many different trees in a very simple way, less naturalistic than usual, but I really like the outcome. I called it “Into the Woods” (after the musical, not the Disney movie) because obviously I couldn’t call it in another way. Do you enjoy it?

 

A Bunch of Flowers

Today I’m gonna show you a whole new floral pattern. Hand drawn and colored as always, however this time I sketched my flowers in a whole different way, less detailed and realistic. I imagined them as common flowers and I love the combination of colors I used (shades of lilac, light blue and pink, and of course the green of the leaves). Simply had fun experimenting something new this time. What do you think of it?

Bali Inspired Artworks

This summer I spent two amazing weeks in Bali. First time in Asia, first time flying so far away from home. Couldn’t have been happier! Best trip of my life ever, probably. Bali is wonderful for its nature, colors and spirituality. They were two weeks full of drawings, sketches and pictures to use as inspiration for my next artworks. I’m gonna share them with you over the next days and weeks. Stay tuned!

Garden

This illustration was inspired by the first short story I ever wrote.  The setting in the story was very important, almost a character itself, so I decided to make it the focus of my artwork. It’s loosely based on a real garden that dear to me, however interpreted in in my own way. I loved playing with many shades of green while coloring the trees, the bushes and the grass. To add more colors I made a bush pink and another one light blue, as to suggest they’re blooming. Trees and bushes enclose the centre of the composition, where I drew a large grey stone vase covered with vegetation, a key feature in my story, and a path towards it in the same material .

Landscapes

Some time ago I found some unfinished sketches among my drawings. They were landscapes I doodled a day I hadn’t nothing to do, only to have fun. So I decided to finish and color them. I still had the images I used as references to draw them (I had found them on internet, usually I don’t take pictures of landscapes although I love them deeply).

Both of them were sea landscapes, the first with only clouds and the horizon, the second with some trees and vegetation. I wanted to play with lights and colors so decided to make them sunrises. Or sunsets, as you prefer. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish one from the other in a drawing or in a picture. I love both these moments and the day and it’s hard to pick favourite, but I think I’d say sunrise, because I love mornings and the beginning of the day.

I really love playing with colors and shades and that’s what I did with these artworks. The first is completely pink and yellow, with a slight touch of lilac, while the second is orange and yellow, with the dark green trees and vegetation creating a strong contrast.

Red Field

I love vast, boundless fields. In every color. To me it’s enough it’s only nature, without any human intervention. I love flowers field, with their many colors and shapes. But I also love corn fields and grass ones as well.

One day I felt the need to doodle a field. I had so much fun doodling the corn. While I colored the sky light blue, however, I didn’t want the corn field to be gold. I wanted it red. After all, red fields do exist. Red would have created a pretty nice contrast with light blue. These two colors go together pretty well, I think.
