My drawing and painting life
Day 99 to day 104 of daily creating – or December 8 through to December 13, different opportunities to make art work.
Some days were busy and I thought I might not have more time than to only make a quick drawing (December 9 and 10), other days I had more time. On December 8 I made two pieces in my oil painting class – on which I didn’t follow the theme of Dark and Light.
I’m really happy about this oil painting, loosely inspired by Kandinsky:
December 10 was my 101st day. Given earlier challenges ended at 101 days, I figured a celebration was fitting at the same mark. For this reason I made a fireworks piece (as shown in the last blogpost before this one).
Since then I did some more work. This weekend I was catching up on lessons from Year of the Spark, making so called ‘carved watercolor paintings’, like this giraffe:
You’ll find two of them in the slideshow. Apart from this giraffe piece there’s also the dog. The carved watercolor painting is a technique Carla Sonheim teaches in lesson 21 of Year of the Spark. I finally had the chance to try it. It’s fun. 🙂
