Experimenting


The reason I haven´t been posting so many drawings lately, is that I´ve been painting instead. I´m not posting the paintings I´ve done so far, I have a cunning plan for them and if it works out you´ll see them here later on. (If it doesn´t work out you´ll see them earlier...)

Meanwhile, I´m posting these experiments I did tonight. Sort of sketches or try-outs for bigger paintings. None of these are good enough for larger works, though, but they´re fun to make and I´m learning a lot as I go along.

12 x 12 cm, watercolours on Arches 300 gsm watercolour paper.

I like these studies, can't wait to see those other paintings you're working on.

I like how you have captured the trees along with the rest of the setting. Quite nice!

Oh, those are just beautiful. I am also doing less drawing because more painting at the moment. I feel guilty when I don't draw, but at least I try to do something arty every day.

The colors are wonderful, Nina! I especially love the trees. I'll be eagerly watching to see what you are leading up to.

Loveliness. Just like the last two drawings. Your work is always loveliness, though.

I love the lighting on those trees - wonderful colour as well. I think they're both great.
