I hope you are ok and your holidays were great!
I had very nice holidays and I think I found my inspiration again! Yes I have to recognise it..I lost it for a while but I feel the need to paint again and hopefully I will finish the round canvas painting very soon!!
One think that I didn’t miss is my painting course…and today, after spending 6h on it, I’ve finished my Chimera! A man with insect eyes and the mouth of a lama!! :) hope you like it as well!!!
Last but not least (even if it’s the 22nd of February)…happy new year to everybody!!
Thanks for reading! :)
Quick post to show you the finished project!!
I was exhausted by the end of the class…2h was suuuper tight…but I made it!!!! :) and I’m very happy with the result!
For those who are curious about the process we followed:
1 – divide the canvas in 4/5 parts max following the lines from our Christmas motif.
2 – choose max 4 different colours and paint 3 areas.
3 – choose a pattern to cover one of the two areas left. It should be something inspired in the Christmas motif again.
4 – same as step 3 but for the last part.
5 – finish by doing some motifs in the parts painted in step 3, always inspired in the first painting.
Hope you like it and…have a nice weekend everyone!
Thanks for reading!!! :)
I hope you are all ok!!
I’m fine, very busy, trying to figure out lots of things which gives me no time to paint…but don’t worry I keep going in a slow mode. Moreover, Christmas is in a few weeeks…and I have to finish all presents…so I wish I had 48h days basically!
I promise I will be soon coming back to my days were painting during the weekend was a must! ;)
In the meantime I just wanted to show you the project we are currently doing for Christmas. The objective is to get inspired by ‘Art nouveau’ specially Gustav Kilmt’s work. So the idea is to represent something as realistic as possible and then we will finish the painting by adding abstract gold decorations.
So here you have the first part, which clearly reminds me about Christmas ;)
Thanks for reading and take care!!
I’m a bad bad blogger, really bad I know but you know that there are moments of your life where you are so busy that you lose track of time! Well, this is happening to me at the moment, but I hope soon everything will be at its place :)
So I thought it could be good to show you what I’ve done today: a nice Tagine pot!!
You know that I’m taking painting lessons right? Well this year a colleague from work is also coming with me and as we have two weeks holidays she proposed to practice today and paint something! Of course, before starting our super exercise we had a super nice meal!
I will probably add some background…when I will have the time! :)
I hope your Sunday was as good as mine, I did had lots of fun and I’m very proud of the result! Takoua and Laurent did a fantastic job, specially Laurent who discovered the painting world for the first time!
Have a nice week and thanks for reading! :)
Quick post today to show you my first painted eye even if it still not finished!!
I’m going to start with: seen that it is the first time I’m painting an eye…I’m really proud! I say this because every time I take a look at it I see a new thing that went wrong…aaaannnddd then I realise it wasn’t that good…and then I finish with aaaagggghhhh I don’t like it anymore! :p
So, I won’t say anything else and I will let you finally see it!!
To finish it I just need some shadows to give volume to the eye!
Thanks for reading! :)
I hope you are all ok and your holidays were awesome!! It has been a while since my last post, buy I promise I fully charged my batteries!! :)
Summer is time for relax…and this is what I did! I decided to take a break and let all my painting projects wait for September…the only problem is that during summer I got new and super nice ideas…so my list of things that I want to do increased! This means then….more fun for me! ;)
Today I want to show you my first abstract painting: Dancing until 6am! :)
I really had fun painting it, specially because I did it in Pauline’s company (do you remember her from my ‘I want to play my violin post’ post? ). We both decided to have a ‘girls’ weekend because we wanted to visit some nice places in France, spend time together and do some sort of creative activity. So guess what, we took our brushes and painting and we decided to let our imagination fly…and well, it is not so bad right? :)
Unfortunately I don’t have any picture of Pauline’s painting but i can say that she has a hidden talent!! ;)
I hope to post something new very soon, I’m really exciting about my next painting!
Thanks for reading and enjoy your week!! :)
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!!).
Hope you like it! If you want to know more about this diy, please go to Craft Passion.
Take care and thanks for reading!!! :)
Work in progress! I’ve spent all weekend figuring out how to paint my next canvas…aaannd I found the way to represent what I have in my head!
So in my next post I will show you the results! In the meantime I just wanted to show you a small part of the future painting!
Thanks for reading!!! :)
Celebrating selling my first painting!! :)
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! :)
