Now it's time for a new batch of morning paintings. Yes, I'm still painting every day, but I did have a little break when I had the flu. I'm not superwoman after all, haha. Also I'm less strict about having to paint early in the morning. I'm trying to loosen up about that, I need my sleep, so sometimes my morning paintings are actually done in the afternoon, so maybe I should rechristen them into 'daily paintings' even though the majority of them is still done in the morning.
As you know last time I finished my first sketchbook of 32 paintings and now you will get to see the first lot in a brand new sketchbook. Except...it's not an actual sketchbook. Instead I chose an A5 size photoalbum / scrapbook. The reason is that this book has protective thin sheets of paper in between the actual pages, which means that the paintings can't rub off on each other. I thought this was a rather brilliant idea of myself. ;-) The paper is not ideal, but it's thick and sturdy and it can take a lot of paint, so I'm not complaining.
Anyway, here are ten more morning/daily paintings!
|#33 - "Morning Paintings" - the opening page of a new sketchbook|
|#34 - "Heart of hearts"|
|#35 - "Imaginary Girl"|
|#36 - "All the colours in my paintbox"|
|#37 - "Flower Landscape"|
|#38 - "Sick Days"|
|#39 - "Abstract"|
|#40 - "Sarah" - after a cd-cover of Sarah McLachlan|
|#41 - "Corinne"- after a cd-cover of Corinne Bailey Rae|
|#42 - "Abstract"|
Of all my paintings so far I'm most proud of the one of Corinne Bailey Rae. I really like how that one turned out. But I don't always have time for such an elaborate painting and also I don't always feel like it. Sometimes I just want to push paint around and sometimes I'm just happy to be able to fill a page at all. One can't be wonderfully inspired and accomplished every darn day! ;-)
But... I still enjoy this thing so I will keep doing it for a while yet. If I ever get tired of it you'll be the first to know. Promise.
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day!
