Forever pumpkins

Hi there!

Some weeks ago around Halloween my mother and I tried to make concrete pumpkins. I looked around the internet and found many different and similar ways on how to make these decorations. So we decided to use nylon socks and big rubber bands to create the shape of a pumpkin. We used acrylic paint to give them some color. I went for a more pastel look rather than very bright colors. The best thing with pumpkins made of concrete are that you can reuse them over and over again. If you get tiered of the color you can always repaint them. I really think this is a fun project to do by yourself or with someone else.

I just wanted to share my other artistic work that I publish on two diffrent instagram accounts. One is mainly dedicated for my abstract and figurative paintings @johowestart. The other one consists of illustrations and prints, for example linocut prints @johowest.illustrations.prints

I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day wherever you are on this planet.

Ice cream print bag

Hi there!

In my last post I wrote about the Ice cream fabric print that I made and now I would like to show you what I have done with it. I sewed an origami bag from the fabric. The bag is actually quite practical and spacious and is perfect as a beach bag. I used the Ice cream print for the outside and a solid green for the inside of the bag. There are many tutorials online on how to make this kind of bag, if you want to try it out.

I hope that you all are having a good day, afternoon, evening, night or morning wherever you are on this planet.

Hello there!

It’s been awhile since I’ve uploaded something so now I would like to show you what I’ve recently been working on. I’ve gotten a taste for fabric printing and stamp making. I wanted to making something for the summer so I created an Ice cream print.

I wish you all a good evening, night, morning, afternoon or day wherever you may be on this earth.

A study of bees, honeybees and bumblebees: part 1

Standard

Hello there!

I have started with a bigger study of bees and bumblebees in the shape of three paintings. Here are some close ups from this project. I used pencil to sketch the objects and then I went in with watercolor.

I wish you all a good evening, night, morning, afternoon or day wherever you may be on this earth.

Bees, Honeybees and Bumblebees

Hello there!

Now you can really feel autumn in the air and the leaves are shifting color swiftly. Even though I won’t focus on autumn and the cold today rather about summer and bees, all sorts of bees. I hope that I can show you some more of my upcoming project when I get further along. I am doing a study about bees and how important they are in nature and to us. So today I started with sketching some different species of bees.
