Hi there! The snow has been gone for some days now and the signs of spring are getting more and more obvious. I have a light and colorful watercolor painting I made that has a spring feeling to it. The painting is a somewhat different take on the traditional Swedish Dala horse (a wooden horse figurine from the province Dalarna,traditionally red) I usually take photos of my work process and it’s no different this time.
For this painting i used:
A pencil, for sketching
Ink pen, for the outlines
Maskingfluid, to cover the parts I didnt want to be blue
Watercolor paint, winsor and Newton, schmincke
Watercolor Paper, The Langton Prestige
I wish you all a good evening, night, morning, afternoon or day wherever you may be on this earth.
It’s been talked about that spring was on its way and flowers such as snowdrops have been blooming. Some day ago ice cold winds and snow appeared.
I maybe have mentioned this before, but i have a Watercolor sketchbook where I do smaller drawings and illustrations. The cold weather made me think that it could be nice to see some signs of spring and summer, which I have created in my Watercolor book. I like to have small projects or do a little drawing a day. I love to depict Nature and especially flowers, so that is What I mostly paint.
We had some very beautiful red tulips at home some week ago and so I couldn’t resist to paint one of them as a fast drawing.
I wish you all a good day, evening, night, morning or afternoon wherever you may be on this planet.
