Painting 28 days colorful in February

Hi all! I'm going to participate in a blog-hop in February with Maiken Damsgaard. She has asked artists to join her creating colourful art through the month of February, "28 dage i farver"
I am going to combine this challenge with the 29 Faces challenge from Ayala Art, which I mainly follow on Facebook!

My wish to schedule my blogging time more consistently hasn't worked out so far, because I have started working more and I lack time for everything now ;-) I am not complaining! It's great, I just have to get used to the new situation.

Last week I have started working on a painting for my daughter. She asked me to paint a canvas with the colours of this painting:

My daughter asked me to paint some birds and if there are any blue birds. Luckily there are and luckily there is a great photographer, who shares photos for artists to paint! So the birds are coming to life slowly on my canvas. Here are two birds that are sitting on the canvas by now:



Another project I have started during a class is evolving in my living room now:



I collaged some lamps and the lady dressed in black from a magazine and slapped some paint on an A2 sized cardboard. In the last lesson on thursday I started drawing the face to the right and gave her a crown. That's when I came up with a title for the painting: "Königin im Lampenladen" "Queen of the Lamp Store". Following are a few process pictures, the painting is not completely finished!











It has been fun to play with paints and collage and I'm looking forward to the two challenges I'm going to start on the 1. February!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy some art!
Sharing this on Paint Party Friday, go over and see some wonderful art from around the globe by some art enthusiasts!

  4. What beautiful and intriguing paintings you make. Love the birds especially the first one with the puffy pink feathers. Your lady with the crown and the thoughtful look is quite special and I do like her pink crown.

  9. That's a lot of wonderfully colourful projects you have on the go which is impressive when you're working more with less time to paint. I especially like the birds and look forward to seeing them progress.
