Prepping for art class tomorrow with my students ❤
They are making their own picture design for travel mugs, last step is to actually put it on an actual travel mug 😉
I can promise an after picture in time ❤
I have worked with a comission, which I even finished, part of in-progress-picture below. I want to take proper photos and everything before posting anything.
I choose a paper with a bit more structured surface and it turned out to realy be the best option when I started painting with the water colours ❤
I have also bought new coffee cups so right now I am only drinking coffee out of this lovely cup ❤
I went into town with a friend right before closing today, I needed a new backpack, and I have had my eyes on a special backpack for a while ❤
This is Fjällräven Rucksack no.21 Large Navy! ❤
This series has so many nice colours you shoudl really check it out at Fjällrävens homepage ❤
And why have I bought a new backpack…well…
TOMORROW: SCHOOL STARTS!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
I start planning for lessons and make plans for the kids…and everything around 😀 My fingers has been itching for a while now but I have made sure to be off teacher-duty! And just having vacation…
I also start working at a new workplace, yes small butterflies are fluttering around in my stomach ❤ (I need to make a picture of this before weeks end..right?!)
*Mentally prepping….going to go eat chocolate now….*
*I wonder what coffee cup Im going to bring to my new workplace?!?!*
Right now I’m working on a few comissions. The results will be put up into the portfolio together with a few other tings I have sold through the years 🙂
Sometimes people get very surprised I do artistic work for others by request, but I do, so if someone would want something special, please just contact me.
All of my drawings and paintings are for sale as well, I might be kind of bad when it comes to advertising this but there it is. If you’re interested in works in my portfolio or why not a drawing/painitng through my blog, just let me know.
I’m trying out gouache again. Gouache is still a bit tricky…but…I really like the way the paint dries and the results you can get ❤
A friend of mine also tried it out, we agree with eachother….this will take a while to get the hang of 🙂
Tomorrow I’ll continue working with it, I will have maaaaany bad paintings coming up 😉
I have been exploring a bit with materials and combos of them recently….I really want to find a way with ink that works with how I want the end result to be… so I will just have to continue I guess 🙂
Even though the hand are a bit….messed up above I somehow like how it turned out, exploring details and shapes ❤
I have been feeling very tired the last couple of days, slight headaches and the last couple of weeks I havn’t been able to live without allergy pills and nose spray specifically for allergy. I did a few hours in the art studio with my partner this evening while watching a film, I just drew how I felt.
But then something happened, a small spark in my mind or a small break through….perhaps….maybe…to tired to fullt act on my inspiration right away I wrote down my ideas, and just let it rest until tomorrow when time is on my hands ❤
Perhaps I quit tonight before it all went to hell 😉
Nope, time to try to sleep, blogging from a dark bedroom with my sleeping bearded man next to me, his silent snores and even breath will help me sleep ❤
For so long I have had my lovely chair I got from an old art school I was attending, but at the same as it is very comfy it is also not at all ergonomic! So I actully bought a new chair today which I can adjust the height of, check this out!
I have had my eyes for this chair for a while, and also:
It feels soooo nice to have found an (more) ergonomic chair and this sideboard which I can just move as I like. Right now I put my oil colours at the top 🙂
I also found a frame for a painting I am planning for 🙂
Yesterday I cleaned my art studio, I have this habit of stacking stuff on my desk…and then in the end I sit with my sketchbook in my hands and don’t use my desk to other than storage. BAckstory!!! I found these AWESOME storage units, like small drawers in metal.
I was at the recycle station, the big one in town, and was just about to go past an middle aged man and a guy in my age, they were offcourse throwing stuff away from their car. I looked once, I was just about to move past hem when my legs turned on their own and from my mouth I hear myself asking if I can get the two drawers. They looked very surprised that anyone would confront them. Thing is that if you have thrown your stuff you may NOT take stuff because it is then owned by the municipality, BUT loop hole!!! if you ask BEFORe they throw it it is still the original owners and they can give it away. Very pleased I carried these two drawers to my car, they were heavy like…..daaaamn! but as you can se it worked really well in the studio to put away stuff but still have it conveniently close ❤
Yesterday I also engaged in a oil painting that has been standing in its easel!
Since I was going to have an “artnest” of friends coming over I put away the easel and went on painting where I last left off. When I was finished, not finished finished, but it was so wet it has to dry before continuing, I was here:
Sorry for bad pictures, I have just taken the pictures from my instagram @imaginaryleia 🙂 Wanna get a little quicker updates of my art and other weird things I’m up to don’t hesitate to follow me on instagram 😀 ❤
When the Artnest kicked off I drew and also went ahead laying out a base for a new oilpainting, but since the colours are quite awesome, I will try to remember to snap photos/upload tomorrow, and you’ll see the awesomeness about it 😉
But the drawing on the other hand turned into a painting and I finished it.
Thought it was a bit funny to try to create some excitement in a painting 🙂 I guess I will bring that with me for future paintings as a mental note for myself 😉
