'Forget me not'

I really love this painting! 
This painting is made on 
a Hahnemühle watercolour postcard. 
The flowers are painted with watercolour pencils, 
the 'Albrecht Dürer' line by Faber-Castell.
Those are some really amazing tools to use! 
I really love the fact that 
now i have access to those tools!
So, what do you think of my 'Forget me not'?






'The Crane'

This painting was more of a experiment.
The Crane was sketched with ink.
Then i made everything wet
and i left the ink to create the shadows. 
I painted it afterwards.
This was an interesting technique, 
but it takes the right tools. 
So this is not for me right now... 
But it was fun painting this picture! 
So, what do you think???


'Goldfishes'



I always wanted a Goldfish... 
Looks like now i have two!!! :-P 
My Goldfishes are painted 
on Hahnemühle 250gr aquarelle paper
with Lukas watercolours. 
I also used some metalic watercolours 
but i am not very happy with them. 
What do you think???


'Lilacs'



Now, you know how much i love Lilacs.
This is an effort of mine 
to paint Lilacs with watercolours. 
The painting is not as good as i wanted it to be, 
but it is not really that bad, is it?

'Plumerias'



I never painted a Plumeria before. 
Nor i knew what this flower was.
I just followed instruction from a video
about watercolour painting. 
I really love the colours! 
But, if i paint this flower again, 
i'll try to make it better. 
The background is painted with 
watercolour pencils.
I really love the Albrecht Dürer line 
from Faber Castell.
They are amazing!!!
So, what do you think?




'View from the valley'


A landscape in watercolours. 
I keep trying new things. 
I think i should not try them all together, 
but i just can't help it!!! 
I just like it!!!
So, what do you think of this painting?



'Hummingbird'


I really love this painting!
It is inspired by someone really dear to me!
This is my first watercolour hummingbird. 
What do you think?


'Tulipes'


Tulips in watercolour.
That's my first time using this technique.
It's wet on dry and i just had to
spread the colour and let it faint on the edges.
What do you think?

'Aurora Borealis'

I always wanted to paint
the Northern Lights!
Watercolour was an easy way to do it.
There are several different ways
to paint this painting.
I might try again, using a different way.
But i think this went quite well! 
What do you think?
It looks a little pale in the pictures. 
The colours are a little bit more 
vibrant than this...

'Poppies'


That's the first time i paint poppies. 
Painting them in watercolour was
easier than i thought it will be! 
I really like this painting! 
It might not be perfect, 
but i think it's quite good!
 What do you think?

'Raspberries'


This was a lot of fun to paint!
It's easy, fast and satisfying! 
I think watercolours are turning to be 
my favorite way to paint! 
What do you think about this painting?


'Snowy River'



I don't think i have done
something like this before.
Painting the river was
a little easier than i expected.
The picture is a little messy,
but it's watercolour.
It is not supposed to be perfect. 
It's supposed to be fun! 
What do you think?

'Cloudy Sky'


I am trying watercolours again!
It's been a long time 
but now i am painting again
and I LOVE it!!!
So, what do you think!

Woollen Cap wc008 (Women's peak cap hat)

This is another one peak hat. 
I really like this pattern. 
I have tried different colours 
with this pattern. 
They look really good! 
What do you think?


Woollen Cap wc007

This cap reminds me of candy corn!
It is a slouchy cap
I made this one with knitting needles, 
which is something i do not usually do. 
Most of my woollen caps 
are made with the crochet hook. 
I became a little bit more slouchy 
than i wanted it to be :-P 
So, what do you think?
