Self Portrait

Technique: Water colour on paper; Dimensions: A4
Hello / Olá sunshines :)
 
How was your weekend? I had a relaxing one, besides the bad weather who decided to return (please, bring me back the hot), at least I adore this kinda of weather to stay at home making art with my favorite musics playing in the background, or watching my favorite tv shows.
This last days I've spent with my family and my friends; working on a new art project; I finish my read of "Aleph" by Paulo Coelho and started my reading of "A Dance With Dragons" from the fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin. Yes, I'm a huge fan of Game Of Thrones (can't wait to April 6 - "the winter is coming"). 
 
I have too say, I've been wanting to share this illustration with you for a while now, and for those who follow me on Instagram have already seen a preview of my self-portrait (unfinish), which one I bring you today totally ended. Well, it was my first self-portrait!! I wanted the viewer look at him and feel me through my eyes, as if he were in touch with me and know me. Whether or not I accomplished that. I hope you enjoy :)



Que tal de fim-de-semana? O meu foi bem relaxante, tirando o mau tempo que decidiu voltar (tragam-me o calor de volta, por favor), ainda bem que eu adoro este tempo para estar em casa a criar arte com as minhas músicas predilectas de fundo, ou a ver as minhas séries preferidas.  Estes últimos dias passei-os com a minha família e amigos; a trabalhar no meu novo projecto de arte; terminei a minha leitura do livro "O Aleph" do Paulo Coelho, e comecei o livro "A Dança dos Dragões" da serie de fantasia "As Crónicas de Gelo e Fogo" do George R. R. MartinSim, eu sou uma super fan da Guerra dos Tronos (mal posso esperar por dia 6 de Abril - "o inverno está a chegar").

Eu devo dizer que, já faz um bom tempo que eu quero compartilhar convosco esta ilustração do meu auto retrato. Aqueles que me seguem via Instagram já tiveram oportunidade de ver uma parte dele, o qual trago-vos agora totalmente terminado. Bem, este foi o meu 1º auto retrato!!  Eu queria que o espectador olhasse para ele e conseguisse sentir-me através do meu olhar, como se estivesse em contacto comigo e conhecesse-me. Tenha eu conseguido isso ou não. Espero que gostem :)


Wish y'all a great week / Desejo-vos a continuação de uma excelente semana.
Love - Gi

Hello / Ólá sunshines :)
 
How are you? / Como estão?
 
I am working on some visual changes both on the blog and my Facebook Page. My apologizes for this delay, but I'm also working on two new projects, one of these I hope that I can show you soon. In a few days I will upload here one of my most recent artwork, so stay tuned! Now I must return to my drawings. Is already night here, but there's still much work to be done.
 
 
Venho informar que estou a trabalhar em algumas mudanças visuais, tanto no blog como na minha página no Facebook. Peço desculpas desde já pela demora, mas encontro-me a trabalhar em 2 novos projectos, um dos quais espero poder falar-vos em breve. Dentro de uns dias já irei actualizar o blog com um dos meus mais recentes trabalhos de pintura, assim que fiquem atentos! Agora vou voltar ao trabalho, já é noite aqui, mas ainda há muito que fazer.
 
 
Wish you all a wonderful night. / Desejo-vos uma esplêndida noite.

Hello sunshines :)

How you doing? Hope your year has started very well, with a lot of good and new things.

I know it's been a while since I've write on the blog, my sincerely apologizes. So many things have happen in my life, and unfortunately not much of good things. You know when things are not so well, and you trying with all your strenght not to fall and keep your head high, but then comes life and put another battle in your way, then you think there's no way this time you will get out of that alive.. upon all those unfortunate serie of events. Then in the middle I got sick too. But now it's everything pretty well again, and I'm back in track :)

Today's post I'm gonna dedicate to my beloved baby cat Potter, who sadly died last January 9th. It was something I wasn't really expecting!! I miss him every single day. Potter was so magic, the purest thing I've seen which I was so lucky to have. Do you know when you hear or see something that fullfill all you with an inner peace and a feel of goodness so big that you can't put in words? It was what I always felt when I looked at him, even when I was sad. I don't know about you who are reading this, but for me, animals are the best, nature is the best in fact. But I also know we have to celebrate and embrace those amazing things that life gave us and smile for having them in our lifes.

I want to thank you all who follow him on Facebook and supported his page, you were wonderful :) I'll leave you now with his pictures, hope you enjoy it. To eternity my baby Potter ♥♥
