My art supplies & style

I most commonly paint with gouache.
My sketcbooks are 100% cotton page books from Hahnemuhle. My gouache is from Daniel Smith, and black paper pad (300gsm) is from Fabriano. My brushes are from Kum Germany. I get all these supplies from my local distributor Prime Art.
Yes! I have my first video course "Learn Fantasy Illustration with Gouache on Black Paper" out now.
My name is Kiara, and I primarily illustrate the fantasy settings from my written stories which so happen to be forests. Without a doubt my favourite subject matter to paint are trees, moss, and foliage with a fantasy twist.

Course

My illustration course is self-paced with over 4 hours of video content. Anybody who is enrolled will have lifetime access to the course, as well as any new bonus sections that will be added in the future.
Yes, the videos are beginner friendly and cater to more experienced painters. In the course I cover some basic aspects about using gouache and its techniques before delving into using it on black paper.
