Etsy Love: LaurenAlexander

So, it's been a while since I've really written in this dear blog of mine - but it's that time of year again - the time when students don't really have a life; final examination time. Anywho, I've found a little time today, and so I'm going to post about an artist who I've recently found on Etsy, LaurenAlexander.

Lauren uses watercolors in an amazing whimsical way, layering them and in doing so, capturing the translucent properties of the medium so perfectly!



I would have to say that out of all of them, her Goldfish would have to be my favourite - just because of the warm colours of the fish contrast so well with the cooler colours of its surroundings; and you can feel so much motion and life in the piece! Truly, a unique, wonderful artist!
