Blue horse

Standard

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

Eraser

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

Watercolor paintbrush

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

Easter eggs

Standard

Hello there!

The days are passing and you would expect it to be spring by now, but the snow keeps on making surprise visits. Its’s quite interesting to see the crocus a spring flower surounded by snow. The sun stays up a bit longer and its more bright now. So that has affected my work in a positive way, I have been and I am working on several watercolor paintings and also some clay things. I have been making some last minute clay easter decorations that I will show you here now.

I want to wish you all a happy Easter!

I hope you all have a nice evening, night, morning, afternoon or day wherever you may be in this world.

Easter sneak peek

Easter sneak peek

Hello everyone!

The snow has come and gone from day to day here. I love to watch snow fall, but it’s sad that it melts away some hours later. In some weeks its Easter and I have started preparing Easter decorations. Where I live its common to bring in birch twigs to the house and hang decorations with them for Easter. So I have made some clay eggs just for this purpose. I thought I would let you have a peek before the holiday. We do not have any birch twigs in our household yet, so therefore the tulips have to suffice.

I hope you all had a nice time here.

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

Spring in snow

Spring in snow

Hello there!

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.

New year New projects

New year New projects

Hello everybody!

This is my third post during 2018 and I would like to share my current and coming art projects with you. I have started my craft year with a big watercolor project, that I will work on from time to time. I got the idea from a present I gave my mother for Christmas. It was a very lovely and colorful puzzle. When we assembled it, I thought that it would be fun to try to make my own image for a puzzle and so the project began. I have also been thinking about creating my own calendar with hand painted pictures for each month of the year.

Here are some photos of my project and how it’s coming along so far.

I hope you all had a nice time in this post. I wish you all a good evening, night, morning, afternoon or day wherever you may be in this world.

Colorful Clay Jewelry

Colorful Clay Jewelry

Hello there!

In my previous post I showed you all the Christmas things in clay I had for sale at the Christmas market. However, I also had jewelry for sale and I thought it would be a great time to display them now. The jewelry I made consists of necklaces and earnings in different shapes, sizes and colors. The white necklace with roses differ from the rest because the design is painted on with acrylic paint. The other necklaces and one pair of the earrings are decorated with clay on clay, a technique that is called clay applique.

Christmas Market Crafts

Hi there!

This is My first blog post this year, 2018. I hope you all had a nice holiday season and a good beginning on this New Year. Some post ago I told you that I would show you more of the stuffs I created for a Christmas market. Christmas is more or less over now and our tree will be taken down this evening. That’s why I think it’s better late than never to show you the crafts I sold at the Christmas market.

I made 4 types of Christmas tree decorations such as elephants, hearts, crochetimitations and gingerbread figures.  I also had things that you can use all year around like necklaces, earrings and figurines.

Here are some photos of the ornaments in a Christmas tree, to see how it can look like.

I hope you all had a nice time reading this entry. I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be in this world.
