Ahoi! I’m Larissa aka Snowsart and I’m a 26-year-old artist from Germany.
I love painting magical landscapes, skies or galaxies. Especially with vibrant colors like blues, purples and pink tones. But I don’t aim to make super high realistic paintings, I just want to get the picture out of my head onto the paper or canvas. I’ve been wanting to become a full-time artist since I was a child. I’m currently enrolled in university, but this doesn’t stop me to fulfill my childhood dream. My inspiration comes in nature and music. I always tend to daydream a lot listening to music while being outside, imagining how I could incorporate certain elements of nature into my art or wondering how gorgeous the sky looks like. Also, I love looking at color palettes in order to get inspired. For many years I have been wanting to achieve that kind of personal art style that a lot of other great artists have, but over the time I learned that I just love using many supplies and trying out different things. This keeps me motivated because there are many things to do! So, this said, just do whatever makes you happy. Try and paint everything you want! This month’s box comes with six watercolor tubes (which colors belong to my favorite color combinations), a brush, a pencil as well as a sponge to create interesting textures with. You can use all of them together in order to explore your little creative magic inside of you or combine it with other supplies. My tip would just be to start painting! Play around with the watercolors, let them do their thing and don’t pressure yourself to create the most perfect thing ever. For me the Art Crew is a wonderful community to get supported by other artists and to get inspired by different techniques and styles. Having a lot of other artists in one place can be so encouraging and motivating, because we all do somehow influence each other. My goals with my art are to show a part of me in every painting and also to inspire others to just listen to and explore themselves, evoke emotions or even make others dream. We all need a little bit of magic in our lives, so I will try my best to show that. This said, I wish you a wonderful time with your new supplies!
