Map face

No, my painting isn't finished yet. It takes quite a lot of time before all those colours are painted in several layers. I have been working on it a little bit every time I get a chance (which isn't as often as I'd like), so I'm hopeful it'll be finished by next week. Fingers crossed :-)

Meanwhile I finished another map face. I bought another road book, the pages are larger but are pretty thin, so I need to adhere them to another piece of paper. But it's fun to search for faces in the lines again. This is what came out this time:

And that's all I have to show for this week! Except for the funnies and thinkies of course ;-)

Linking this post to the weekly blogparty at Paint Party Friday. It's always fun to see my online friends over there :-)

Thanks for stopping by, it's greatly appreciated! Wishing you a great day, and time to relax and do fun stuff in the weekend.

Bye for now. I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

Almost there!

I had a bit of time to work on my painting and it's getting near the end! Although it might still take a few weeks, I know from experience that those final touches and details always take longer than expected. Here you can see how it looks so far:

And I played a bit in my journal yesterday! Every time I do that I ask myself why I don't do it more often, because it's just so much fun. But I have this weird habit that whenever I haven't done something in a while, I hesitate to do it again because I have the feeling I don't know how to anymore. I especially have that when painting faces. I keep delaying it because it seems like so much effort and there's always too little time. But last night I just wanted to do something and I started putting random lines on a page and then saw some figures in there, I grabbed my Inktense pencils and my Stabilo and before I knew it the page was finished. It's not that much effort, it doesn't take that much time. If only I could remind myself of that every time I hesitate again.

Here's the journal page:

I'll be linking this to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. Looking forward to the creations this week!
Here are my weekly funnies and thinkies:

Thanks so much for your visit! I hope you're having a wonderful day, and I wish you a splendid weekend full of things and people you love. I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

How time flies

Another month, another wallpaper! One with warm colours, to celebrate the coming of the sun (at least in this part of the world ...). Here it is:

And here's where you can download it :-)

I've been doing a lot of experimenting this week, digitally, and also on paper. Not much to show for it though, I'm still struggling to translate some ideas into techniques. I am working on a new doodle, so that might be finished by next week. Didn't paint very much either, well, I did paint, but it was something in the house and not on my canvas :-/  I managed to do just a few small parts:

Itching to keep working on it, preferably for a whole day!

I will be linking this to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. I'm off to bed now, but first some funnies and thinkies :-)

Thanks for dropping by! Have a fun day and a great weekend!
Hugs ♥ ♥ ♥

Still playing

with my new painting. I'm enjoying it so much, I love playing with colours and this painting is one big colour-party :-)

Here's some more progress-pics:

It's a big canvas (80 x 80 cm - 31,5"x 31,5") so I still got a lot to cover. I drew some figures and some random lines, but mostly I just make it up while I go. It's fun!

Didn't manage to make a second sketch this week, to make up for the week I missed, but I did make one for this week:

I'm getting a bit bored with these sketches, and I might switch to something else. I don't like doing the same thing over and over again, I need to change regularly. Might change to doodles or something else entirely. We'll see :-)

That's it for now. Linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow and looking forward to visiting all of you. Just some funnies and thinkies left :-)

  celebrating earth day ... :-)

Take care, have fun and see you next week! Thanks for dropping by ♥ ♥ ♥
