Here is what i produced lately:
The riding woman is my first painting with gouache paint only, on a paper splattered with a little water colour.
The painting below is for the exhibition:
worked on a square canvas (the photo didn't cover it all, sorry). I painted her after a digital sketch I have made some time ago...:
Now I have started collaging backgrounds recently, you can see examples of it here and here and I just thought the very rough background could use some smoothness, so I found some of my torn up papers, strips this time that I glued onto the canvas. Then I played with different colours and mixed acrylics with liquid water colour. I let it dry and sketched the woman onto the canvas, collaged her in rice paper, because of the subtleness the paper has and the background would still be visible! I sketched on top of it with charcoal and added colour to her with water colour pencils. To me she looks very strong and determined, just what I really want to become - that's why I want to keep her! ;-)
The following face is sketched after one of Lucas Cranach the Elder's paintings. She is painted and drawn on water colour paper with some acrylic splatters serving as a nice background.
Last but not least a sketch in charcoal/pastel:
This was it for today/this week :-)
I enjoy very much concentrating on making art most of the days. How lucky am I? Soon other tasks will fill some of the space, giving Danish courses for parents at the local school. But that will hopefully be a good change, meeting people to talk to and hopefully have fun with!
So on monday will be the day when we put up the art and on thursday the 5. September there is a vernissage for interested people. A bit scary, but hopefully also a good experience, as I already know of a few people/friends, who will be there and make it all worth the nerves :-)
Hope you will have time to make art and stop by and visit the great artist gathering on Eva and Kristin's blog for the Paint Party Friday!
Thank you for visiting!
