Hey! The first of my watercolor tutorials, and hopefully of many more to come! I would love to hear your opinions, if this is useful or not, and any recommendations that you would like to make. Some friends are saying I should add some music to it ? …
Please take note that I’m a self-taught watercolor illustrator, and my approach to it is not the only valid one.
I’m using the Good Summer Coloring Book, that we made with Paprika.
As Pantone informed, Greenery is the color of the year. I’m a big fan of everything related to keeping things simple and greenery is the nature’s neutral, so I was obviously inspired to make a pattern of it.

Marilyn is the founder and calligrapher of ETERATE.CO. Her clientele are from both Singapore and New York, including DKNY, Google, SK-II and Skin Inc. She specializes in live calligraphy.
During the launch of Michael Kors’ new fragrance, Sexy Blossom in Singapore, I worked together with Marilyn to create an artwork specially for Michael Kors. She discussed with the client on their needs to deliver a unique experience, and incidentally, I had the chance to collaborate with her and complement her calligraphy with my illustrations. With the help of technology, we had the opportunity to communicate closely via email, to work on the drafts while keeping in mind the client’s priorities – the layout and color of the work.
