Hello, dear art lovers. In this #tbt post, I invite you to journey back in time with me to my debut collection, crafted in 2021. A few years back, I stumbled upon a remarkable series of photographs by the talented Sharon Montrose featuring adorable baby animals against a pristine white backdrop. These images resonated with me on a profound level, leaving an indelible mark in my memory.

My very first product line draws its inspiration from these captivating moments. Each artwork in my "Baby Animals on White" collection is a meticulously crafted watercolor painting. The journey to create these artworks was an extensive one, filled with countless hours of mastering the intricate art of watercolor painting. It demanded an exploration of my unique style, a quest for the perfect level of detail, and a careful selection of reference materials that aligned with the vision for this extraordinary project.

Explore this collection, and you'll witness the culmination of this artistic odyssey. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

The story of my Baby Animals

I've honed my craft over an extensive period, amassing a trove of digital artworks stored on my iPad. Today, I'm truly excited to share these creations with you. In my pursuit of perfection, I've reached a point where I believe these pieces are ready to be introduced.

My artistic style leans toward a realistic watercolor aesthetic that retains a distinct artistic quality, setting it apart from mere photographs. Each piece within my portfolio has been meticulously crafted using digital tools on my iPad, and their original dimensions allow for stunning fine art prints of up to 40 inches, preserving every intricate detail.

One of my most challenging feats has been portraying white animals. In the realm of watercolor, white isn't a color you paint with; it's the color of the paper itself. I adhered to this principle, except when rendering eyes and whiskers, where I employed white instead of masking fluid to achieve that lifelike gleam.

What sets my animal paintings apart is the soulful gaze of each subject. I pour my heart and inspiration into every piece, working diligently to ensure each motif resonates deeply with me. I've chosen subjects that have stirred my creative spirit, giving my absolute best to bring them to life on the digital canvas. To infuse an element of enchantment, I've chosen to incorporate backlighting, inviting you to discover the captivating "light magic" within each work.

My paintings are available as fine art prints. They can be used as nursery wall art decor, bedroom decor, thoughtful housewarming gifts or presents for a baby's birth. I really hope, my paintings will find their way in this world full of great art and talented artists. Thank you very much for stopping by and taking a look.

P.S. The collection of baby animals will continually expand, with a dedicated effort to ensure that each new addition seamlessly complements the existing ensemble. Stay tuned for more wonders!
