COCOSKIES | An art blog: An injection of Summer


An injection of Summer

Gouache paint.
I can't believe my first year of University has almost gone by already! It has seriously flown. In a way I'm glad, I feel like I've needed a proper break for a while. I think it's important to come back nice and refreshed or you'll just end up feeling apathetic towards whatever you're doing.

So today I decided to treat myself to a bit of art after completing a philosophy essay that took a lot longer than I anticipated. It was kind of weird at first, I had a bit of an artistic block because I hadn't done anything in so long. But after browsing Pinterest for a bit I felt inspired. I wanted to do something bright and summery, so here's the result.

Oh also! I now have a Society 6 account. So if you're interested in getting this particular watercolour design as an iphone case, laptop/ipad skin or print then head over there!

    I recently stumbled across your blog and I LOVE it! I love the layout to the content and everything in between! Your art is just impeccable and your blog is simply the epitome of perfection! I am your newest, most avid follower, I look forward to reading your future posts. I would love it if you could perhaps follow me back too?

    Love from, THE EASTERN PEARL

  2. This is pretty! It reminds me of some sort of tropical flavoured drink, haha.
    I'm so envious of everyone whose uni year is almost over... even though I just got back!

  3. Yes I see what you mean haha, like some sort of pink grapefruit drink? :P
    I forget that everyone starts Uni at different times, I've always just presumed that everyone starts in September.

  4. Awww thank you, that's one of the nicest comments I've ever had! xxx

    I LOVE THIS! A few months ago I saw a gorgeous painting at an art show that was really similar to this with all the tropical colours, I went back to buy it but it had already been snapped up- this just reminded me how much I loved it. Wish I had talent like this! xx
