I'm finally painting again.It's been so long wothout any painting, that I had to make some small easy ones to start with. The first one isn't anything but a try of layering. I always think it's so pretty when I see paintings with lots of layerings in them, so this was my first try in a long time. It's done on a textured paper meant for acrylics, I used Twinks and watercolor pencils to make mine.
Next one is done in my Zeta A4 sketchbook. I've made this rose once before, but in a much larger scale. Twinks once again and the purpose was to get the paint flow and me to relax. I think I did both things well. I hope you'll get the feeling of depth in this one, that's why I share the angled photos.
One more to go before I got to a bit more serious stuff. This one is a prismatic painting, but all of a sudden I were carried away and added shading and.......... well, I'm pleased after all. This one is also in my Zeta sketchbook and Twinks.
Below is the reason I sat down with my colors again. I so much wanted to paint a giant bug. This is a work in progress, and it will take me quite some time to finish, but I love doing it and will enjoy every minute of it. I've just started his head, so it's the initial layers only, visible here. Paper in use is Fabriano Artistico extra white hot pressed 140 lbs. Very nice to work on, and for this one I use my watercolor pencils.
As I wrote in my last post, June is almost here and along with that Summer of Colors 5 start again. I'm so looking forward to that, and now I've bought me a class over at Community Trive, thought by Tracey Fletcher King, called Deliscious Painting. I so much want to be able to loosen up a bit, and I think Tracey is the best one to learn me that.
Just as a warm up, I sat down and made this last piece. I had to see if I could do something similar to her videos on the topic. I'm pleased with it and am so excited.
It seems June will be packed with fun for me, and I can hardly wait.
I'll link this post to PPF for a change. Happy PPF everyone.
