Colors, colors and more colors!

Welcome Mimono!!

Just finished a new diy!! More complicated than the last one but it turned out quite good actually. To be honest with you there are a couple of things to improve…so next one is going to be perfect!!

I named him ‘Mimono’ (mi monkey in spanish) after a joke my boyfriend did today and jokes apart…I think it is a really nice name (try not to think about what it means but how does it sound instead!!).

Celebrating selling my first painting!! :)

Feeling good!!!

Yesterday we celebrated the end of this year’s painting course in ‘Le Gribouillard’. It was really nice to see all the students who participated in our final assessment: decorating the ‘atelier’s entry!

Because I love painting and it is a passion for me, I decided to paint a heart that pumps colour! (…and you probably noticed that I do like hearts… :p )

Hope you like it! :)

Take care and enjoy your saturday!

Spring

You don’t know how good I’m feeling right now…I’ve just finished the super big painting full of flowers and colours!

Big challenge…but I have to say that I feel I accomplished it!! In any case the last word will be from its future owner…I hope she will like and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it!!

Thanks for reading and have a nice week! :)

Dali’s House

Still painting my big canvas but I wanted to show you my last class assignment: I’ve called it Dali’s House (you probably know why :) ).

I don’t remember how many hours we spent on this collage but the whole exercise included: make the collage (first of all we had to glue it and then explose it), draw it and paint it!

Hope you like it!!

Painting and painting

It has been a while since my last post…but here I am with some fresh news ;)

Still painting my super big canvas…lots of flowers, lots of colours! I’m enjoying every single moment…painting, getting things wrong and correcting them, trying new things on a paper before painting them directly on the canvas…as you can see I don’t have time to waist ;)

Unfortunately (or not :) ) May in France is a month that doesn’t count because we have so many bank holidays (and this year we could take three long weekends) that I’m behind my schedule…but, I have fixed myself a deadline and I want to make it on time…so, here you have some pictures of my canvas and something that I tried…and I leave you with suspense until the 21st of June!!!!

Flowers

I’ve been practicing a little bit before starting to draw and paint my super big canvas!

I had in mind abstract and colourful flowers…so I grabbed my brushes and all the colours that I like and I let my imagination flow!

20140502-203418.jpg

The one on the top left looks quite heavy, this is why I think I should probably use more white with those colours. It has to look delicate and light…and this is not the impression that I get.
For the rest, I think I’m quite happy with them so…let’s see what they will turn out in the real painting :)
Of course, I still need to think how I will put all them together…and combine all those colours!! As you can see…I have quite a lot to do!! Buuuttt, I love it!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!! :)

Let’s go big!

Weather is not as good as I like…so I think today is a good day to start my new painting! :)

This one is going to be also a BIG challenge…literally because it is the first time I’m going to paint something that BIG!

20140427-121058.jpg

As you can see in the picture, the biggest painting I’ve ever painted is my ‘Paradise’ (or ‘Reincarnation): 30×30.
Now, it looks like my colleague from work wanted me to paint flowers…so I said to her…yeah why not, I’ve never painted flowers so it can try it! But I wasn’t expecting her second request: yeah but…I would like it to be as big as possible!!
Ohhhh dear, well…challenge accepted!!! I hope 50×150 is big enough!! :) Wish me luck!! ;)

Thanks for reading and enjoy your Sunday!
