Adventures into vlogging and painting Be Frassy

You have those moments where you just need a break from everything, well last night I decided to put my talent to good use and create some portrait pieces based around some of my favorite Online peeps, last night I was working on a portrait of Audrey from Be Frassy who is just the ultimate babe!I might just start a women's portrait section in my portfolio but i am however doing these drawings as a switch off from other work.

Also today I made a new section in the shop for custom work how exciting! So if you head over to Ella Masters Studio you'll see a section that says "Headers and Designs" and you can nab a portrait or a header of your choice for your blog! First time i've actually done a sort of order on the spot style thing so we shall see where it goes. By the way its 10% off with every custom purchase if you use the code ELLADESIGN15

Anyway enough of the plugging business, this is the first style portrait I have done in what feels like forever, I more then often now work in a simpler style less realistic. I am using Bockingford paper and Windsor and Newton Watercolours, I'm yet to finish off the Breton top, the more detailed the better for me when it comes to drawing I love a good challenge!

 I have some rather exciting news I have mastered (i've had a play with) some editing software on my MacBook and have decided I want to get into vlogging and youtube a lot more. I have shared a lot of my hyperlapse videos on my Instgram (@_ellamasters_) and want to kinda get into more substantial videos, I did a few videos years ago but I wanna share a lot more of my work with you guys, few tutorials here and there sound like a good idea to me. Anything you'd love to learn or now hows? give me a shout!


  1. This looks so great! I've never really found watercolor to be my forte, though I haven't used them too much. Awhile back I started a 'Blogger Portraits' series where I drew graphite portraits of my favorite bloggers. I'm hoping to revive it this year at some point!

  2. This is bloomin' marvellous

  3. Hi Ella,
    I love that portrait. Audrey is such a beauty, and such a fab role model when it comes to fashion blogging.
    I'm going to put in a cheeky request for your vlogging adventures...I'd love to see a tour of your studio/where you create. I'm such a nosy parker, sorry! I love your illustrations and always find it fascinating how other people work whilst going through a creative process. I find even more fascinating when it's a woman too as it's much more relatable.
    Good luck with your new venture. Can't wait to see the finished results.

  4. Your illustration skills are awesome. Seriously, well done girl!

    This would make such a fun gift for that special someone. :)


  5. I would love for you o start youtube I love learning how your paintings come together. Videos I would like to see would be tips and tricks for painting with watercolour and how you started your business and how others can too

  6. This looks lovely and I kind of want one since you are super talented and good luck if you start vlogging.
