Work in Progress. I really love working on custom paintings. It’s such a different challenge from creating my own work: to try and capture the essence of people I don’t personally know (often) through photographs and stories that I’m told about them is really satisfying. This ones a present from dad for his little girl and her mommy. #customart#custompainting#watercolor#portrait#watercolorportrait
"You're too thin." "Your arms are very thin." "It's ugly to be like that," another person said. Listening these comments often made me hate my body. I was ashamed to wear a bikini. I bought bigger clothes so I wouldn't look so skinny. I ate junk food because I thought I would gain weight. The only weight I gained was that of frustration.
Today I don't carry this weight (not because I gave up gaining weight lol) but because I feel free and happy to be as I am. Today I know my body and emotions better. 🇧🇷
"Você é magra demais". "Seus braços são muito finos". "É feio ser assim" outro dizia. Escutar tantas vezes issas coisas me fizeram odiar meu corpo. Tinha vergonha de usar biquíni. Comprava roupas maiores para que eu não parecesse tão magra. Comia porcarias porque achava que assim ganharia peso. O único peso que ganhei foi o da frustação. Hoje não carrego esse peso (não porque desisti de ganhar peso hahhah) mas porque me sinto livre e feliz de ser como sou. Hoje conheço melhor meu corpo e emoções.
I love sketching people! I often take all the bits about different individual’s styles that I love and mash them together to create an illustration. I’ve been doing this for years, but never really do anything with the drawings. UNTIL NOW. I’ve realised looking through my sketchbook is that I tend to always draw big statement earrings on gals so I thought I’d try and make the earrings I’ve been drawing! Maybe it’s my inner voice telling me to make earrings you say?? I THINK SO! With each print I release I will each day try and make the earrings in the illustration! (I hope this works). Both the print and the earrings will be available to buy together on my Etsy shop! YAAAAAS! LETS (try to) DO THIS THING! ❤
📸3 years ago ! Major TBT & a very different look. I've learned from my mistakes also since. This 👆🏻was my second test shoot ever ! Just before doing this shoot, I tried for the first time of my life to put my beloved eyebrows between an esthetician's hands... which has quickly turned to be the worst decision EVER ! She basically took half of them away when I was telling her to keep them thick 3828783 millions times before she even starts to touch them ! Never did it again tho. I trust only myself to do them now. So important for the look 👀 Anyway, also I kept it very casual and natural since this test was just to show to model agencies I was a little bit photogenic 😊- 📸 Adeline Neveu
