A new Tuli-piece was made last week.
I did my best to capture some of the process.
I decided to finally make some Christmas cards this year.
Featuring this little elf.
Just painted another thing. I’m really into fairies now, after the last one with the bushes. And I also need to practice making shadows dark enough. Continue reading
This was a big and intimidating project. And I got a bunch of “in progress”-pictures of it!
I made a new painting of Tuli (that’s their name now). I’ve always got lots of ideas for new paintings with them, but I easily get too occupied with my personal projects, and postpone other important stuff I have to do. So I have to hold myself back from manifesting every single idea that pops into my head. This one wasn’t really supposed to happen.
I haven’t given up on this project yet!
Currently I’m working on a layout, like what size the pages should be and if they should be filled with many small pictures or just a big one. And, I’m trying to find the right colours. That is really hard, because it’s supposed to take place at night, but I don’t want to make it too dark.
Of course, it’s not really possible to make a bright night scene unless most of it is filled with lamps or other lights (something I’ve had many arguments with clients about). But I still want to experiment to see just how bright I can make it and still have it obvious that it is night time.
Just like it took me longer than it should to realize that I could use my current interest for mushrooms to make art, so did it take a while for me to start combining the mushrooms with my love for tiny houses.
I don’t know what took me so long. Mushroom houses are already a big thing, and I’ve drawn some before I got interested in the fungi-species. Oh well, at least it hit me eventually.
Here’s the steps I took to make my latest mushroom-painting.
Merry Christmas, or happy whatever other holiday you’re engaged in!
I’m no fan of holiday-celebrations myself. It’s not that I have anything against christmas, it just happens to be filled with things that makes me nervous, so I usually try to avoid it all.
I was planning on spending the day alone, but agreed to come with my boyfriend to his mom’s house. Luckily, their idea of a good christmas celebration looks a lot like mine. They spent the whole day playing computer games and watching series, and I was listening to music and painting this:
It almost beats that one year when the whole celebration was eating clementines and watching die hard.
Hope everyone else also got to spend the weekend the way they wanted to.
Hello. Seems like my blogging-breaks are just getting longer and longer. Been three months since last time I wrote, I think. All the latest posts are starting with “sorry I haven’t been around”.
