Speed Painting Miss Lottie

Jan 31, 2013 by

After almost a year since the last one of these painting videos I find myself getting back into painting… again.. again?

I tend to only paint when I am relaxed and have lots of time so it doesn’t happen too often. I like to find the perfect tv show or video game that can occupy my mind while I paint. We’ve just finished playing Assassin’s Creed Revelations and to be honest it kind of sucked and I didn’t find it as inspiring as the previous two. So we started playing #2 again last night and I’m already in the mood to get out the water colours!

I think I’ll continue my series of portraits of inspiring people online as well as some other cute things… or realistically I’ll just keep doing portraits of Lottie XD I have a one track mind!

I was considering putting together a few basic tutorials on very beginners techniques for water colours so if you have any questions leave them in the comments!


After almost a year since the last one of these painting videos I find myself getting back into painting… again.. again? I tend to only paint when I am relaxed and have lots of time so it doesn’t happen to often these days. I am definitely very out of practice with my painting but I would love to continue this series so I can improve more. I’m feeling a bit inspired though so who knows, maybe I’ll be able to do some more!

How To Paint A Pomeranian Puppy.
Today I am sketching my puppy Lottie.
She has been featuring a lot in my Bergamot comics lately.
This is just a quick sketch so I started with pencils.
Then outlined it in pen.
When I started filling it in with a cream wash, the real puppy started getting interested!
I added some shading and a little red for the blush.
I then added in some background in purple.
And a couple of other details.
She’s pretty goofy in real life too!
Then it was time for the ultimate test of skill.
Does the real thing like it?
That’s a pretty resounding no.
Thanks anyway Lottie! I’ll do better next time and bribe you to life it with treats!
Artistic fail!
Thanks for watching!
