Morning Paintings #311-320

Time to show you another batch of Morning Paintings, the paintings I did for about a year every morning right after getting up.

The next ten were done around the holidays and here and there it shows. :-)

Here are paintings no. 311 to 320, as always done in gouache:

#311 - Merry Merry Merry

#312 - Alien X-mas

#313 - Circles in Circles

#314 - Dots in Circles

#315 - Connect the Dots

#316 - Layers of Flowers

#317 - Old Year Mandala

#318 - New Year Mandala

#319 - Dots and Circles

#320 - Triangles

In this series of paintings you can see that a lot of focus was on the four same colours: red, yellow, blue and green and seeing where such a simple palette could take me. I love how a few colours can have such different effects depending on what you paint and whether you cover the entire page with colour of not.

Hope you enjoyed this set of paintings and I wish you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!

PS There'll be an update on The Spook in my next post, thanks for your encouraging and welcoming words for him. 


  1. These are just fantastic. I enjoy seeing the different shapes and ideas you come up with.
    I may have to give this a try. Do you measure out everything to accomplish precise images? Is there any kind of tutorial on your site? Thanks for sharing. They are so unique.

    1. Thanks Barb. Some of these I did with the help of a ruler (many of the patterns). I set up a grid or shapes and then work in with the paint. Others are completely by hand (the flowers, the mandala's). I don't have a tutorial, I mostly divide the page in a dotted grid and work from there.


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
