Custom portrait of a grandfather and his grandson by the lake they go fishing to sometimes. I wanted to create a dreamy and colorful wibe and did so by painting in bright color and both using the technique wet-in wet and wet on dry. If you are interested in having a moment from your life captured in watercolor do not hestitate to contact me! I take commissions in watercolor of people, pets, homes, and all other sorts of motifs.
If you are interested in ordering a watercolor portrait and have it delivered before Christmas, now is the time. You can buy a watercolor portrait online through my Etsy page or Fiverr page.
Here’s a simple way of caring for your watercolor brushes: never let them stay in a jar of water while painting, instead always lay them flat while you’re not using them. Otherwise the strands will get bent and the glue might not hold the strands in the long run. For more tips and glimpses of when I paint follow me on Instagram @watercolorbycaroline
Painting a custom portrait on Canson fine art paper.
In this video I share how I painted a custom pet portrait of a cat sleeping on a pillow. I am using Canson fine art paper and watercolor in both tubes and pans.
I painted this portrait as a gift from one of the sons in the family to their mother. He wrote back to me that he was very happy with the result and couldn’t´t wait to give it to his mom. That´s something I really like to hear!

I painted this cute dog this weekend in watercolor. I decided to remove most of the background and kept just some shadow.
Surfer in watercolor. I became quite satisfied with how the wave turned out and I´ll try to paint some more paintings in a similar style. I have always wanted to be able to paint water and waves beautifully and I feel like I might be on to something.
