#NEMOPHILIST2 – Foxy Girl
Hi everyone! I am planning on doing another series, I would like to call this series as “NEMOPHILIST” featuring a girl who wanders in forest and its beauty and solitude, loves nature, and be kind to all types of animals, the last post “Mermaid love” included in this series too, I kinda want this to take slow, to learn anatomy of animals and update my portrait skills.

I always fantasize about mystical creatures, creatures that didn’t exists, beautiful ones that was created in man’s head, although I always wonder that all the “mystical creatures” that have eyes to see, ears to hear, nose to smell, wings to fly, gills to breath underwater, heart to beat, nothing new to exist other than which our Creator already created to do so, Subahanallah. Why does a creature need gills to breath underwater, they could have something else, I guess human brain limit to imagine ends there. No offence, but thats what I always wonder about!
I love mermaids, merpeople, wonderful beautiful creatures. I was inspired by a Youtuber Lesya Poplavskaya ‘s recent art and found my inspiration to paint this girl half submerged in water with goldfishes around. When I about to paint the water finally, I was afraid I might ruin it because I love how it was turning out, but what’s the point in that?! I have to keep learning by making mistakes, but Alhamdhulilah, I didn’t ruin it, it turned out to be exactly what I had in my mind!
I hope you would love to see how I managed not to ruin this art, click here to see Watercolor portrait: Mermaid, Goldfishes
Inspired by the infinite galaxies around us. We are not stuck with the past, every breath we take is another oppurtinity waiting for us. Infinite opportunities, infinite worlds.
I wanted to make the circles precise, my bad, I failed to do so, it is not easy as I thought. I will make it right, In Sha Allah. But the painting turned out like I imagined in my head, happy about it.

#New sketchbook new art
If you have been following me, you would know that I recently finished my first sketchbook successfully. I bought the second one in A3 size and I cut it in half and bind it, and now I got two A4 size sketchbooks! Its a 130gsm and the paper has grain texture to it which I really love, a little yellow tint, and the paint flows well, a big thumbs up!
I need practice to learn to paint hands, legs and basically body anatomy and I thought why start with hands and thats how this painting started. I used wet on wet technique, and whoa! I had so much fun doing so.
If you want to take a look at how I painted this, check out my video here How to paint hands: Wet-on-wet WATERCOLOR
Put your sweats on
Toss your hair in bun
Drink some coffee
Put on some music
Pull up your sleeves
and get things done.
This painting is sooo me. Comfortable with my sweats, messy bun, stubborn spirit, winged eyeliner on fleek and getting things my way.

Let the rain wash away her agony of past; let the hope wash away her sands of sorrow; let the confidence wash away her uncertainty; let the clarity wash away her ashes of doubts; let the tranquility wash away her troubles; let the joy wash away her worries; let the kindness wash away her rage; let the love wash away her misery; let the art wash away her grief.
I end my ‘Painting emotions’ series with this painting and with quite a clear mind, I can’t believe I finished a whole sketchbook, sticking to a theme, which I usually never do. This is the perfect ending to my sketchbook. This series is very special to me and I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. Expect a video with all the paintings in this sketchbook real soon.

She wanted a change, a fresh start, a overall makeover but the same old love. Yep, it’s time to restart her life and make things right this time. She was never afraid of change, but she was afraid that it might make her something who she is not. She realised she was strong enough to go through this part and in this part of her life, she found out what she really is supposed to do this time, a second chance for her and her love.
New beginning are often disguised as painful endings, she realised it hard way.

Another DIY project after a long time.
In regard of the Disney’s new movie release, the most awaited “Beauty and the Beast”, I wanted to create the Enchanted Rose in glass jar.
And it turned out super good. Here’s the link to the video of making of the DIY Disney’s Enchanted Rose 10 easy steps
- Tall Jar with lid
- Thin wire
- A4 Paper sheets
- Glue and paper tape
- Scissors and pen knife
- Cut the A4 paper into 4 pieces, you will need 6 pieces of paper.
- Fold the paper diagonally twice and fold it in half, cut into petal shape.
- Paint all 6 petals on both sides and let it dry.
- Cut into leaf shape and paint it green, 2 leaves looks good on the rose.
- Cut sepal shape and paint it green.
- Wrap the paper tape around thin wire and paint it green, for the stem.
- Cut the petal pieces and glue it together and cut the edges.
- Start from the biggest petal, and glue all the petals together to make it a rose.
- Put all the rose parts together.
- Tack the rose to the lid and voila! Disney’s Enchanted rose in your hand.
Tips: Bend the edge of the rose petals a little, to make it look a realistic flower.
#she on one end, he on another.
There is this loneliness that exists in her mind. The world around her watches her, she became quiet. She ignored him, to sort through all the tangling inside her head and for her luck, that didn’t go well either. She couldn’t stop thinking about him. She doesn’t know for sure that he is also misses her like she does, and she wants to keep believing it. She cries on one end, and he on another, longing for each other. Love lost, darkness surrounded. All she could think was if there is a way to re-live the life they had together, if there is a way to lit light in her dark life.

#Independent and Free
She is the woman of strength, courage and dignity; the one who values herself and fights for what she believes in. Behind this strong girl, there were days when was alone and helpless, there are lessons she learnt from life, and there are stories of battles and struggles which she has fought alone. Behind every successful woman is HERSELF. Happy women’s day.
