The Perfect Break From Work: Digital Drawing

Working from home is the best! I have so much more energy, I spend less hours working but get so much more done. And in between work, I have time for fun stuff and I actually manage to enjoy myself! As I told you in my previous posts, this is all quite new to me. I’ve never been very good at working from home. I guess it also helps I have a few more immediate deadlines and some new goals that aren’t too far away.

But anyways, I just wanted to share with you something I managed to do in my spare time. You see, I used to love drawing and painting. Not just with pencil drawing up shapes, for me it’s the colours that do it. But I’m not particularly talented and mostly quite inspirationless. So I don’t want to spend all my expensive paint on just a weird idea. I have this old tablet that used to be my best friend while travelling and now sort of moved to the bottom of the cupboard, but it has this awesome Note application. With the little pen that came with it, you can pick different drawing styles (I always go for pencil because you can blend in the colours quite well, just like with the painting style I like using) and a huge variety of colours. And for someone as untalented ad me, the Eraser and Undo functions come in massively handy.

Since it is winter time, I got my inspiration of a Christmas card. Here’s the result! I’m quite proud of it really, I might just try it out with my paints!

But first I’ll do a little bit more work. I’m on fire today!
