I have actually been in my art studio all day long…so far… practising my gouache skills!
I made three squares earlier today which I just drew something into, and then I added things as I went on painting.
I was a bit sceptical to the pink-purple in the grass but…it kind of worked out well. The flowers was supereasy to scan and get a good digital copy of:
No tonal corrections at all… but the cup was a bit harder, even though I treied correcting it to the original painting the red just pops out a bit to much, so have that in mind 😛
I figured a few things out while working, I think what I really want to get a hang of is the habit of how to mix the colours depending on if you need a light dried colour or a dark colour…since the colurs change from wet to dry ….
At it later again perhaps… but I know I have a very nice package to get from the post office ❤ soooo perhaps other things will pop up later 😉
The Flimmer Festival is a summer festival in my town where you watch movies at sundown in the towns parks, tonight they’re showing “Fantastic beasts and where to find them” 😀
I have loose plans to go ❤
Sketch that will be painted later. My bearded man is coming home soon, time to surprise him with coffee ❤
I got my package today with materials from mattonbutiken.se, right on time before my trip next week ❤ the illustration course up in Leksand !!!
Made a few drawings today using my materials, I am though saving the new sketchbook and illustrationboard 😉

This painting is absolutely not finished, but it is good to be able to see it often to ponder where I should continue and how!
I have a plan what feeling I want to communicate, the rest is a process and a problem to solve 😉
I am so tired but I managed to make a small one today, I really think bumblebees are pretty ❤
Yesterday I laid down to get tattoed, I partly covered up my totoro-tattoo, and made an extension of it 🙂
In the beginning of the summer I did the blueberries and the bumble-bee. For now I will let the back be from anymore tattoes, let me tell you, it hurt like hell so that is a reason too. But as soon as I know my schedule for the coming year I will book an appointment to get bunnies and strawberries on my arm ❤
This is me checking in, I’ll be back with some more creative stuff as it comes along 🙂
With the students, on a trail about 13km today. It was nice but wow I am sore and tired!
We came to a lovely field of white flowers, it was amazing ❤

I have had quite some balanced weekend, feels good considering those stress-related stuff I have had in my backpack…I have been creative with my handsome boyfriend and I am glad to say I am almost finished with the painting I have been working on!
In the link above you can see where I ended it last time and yesterday I came this far…
And when I took a break for dinner this evening I had come this far…
Sorry for the bad pictures, my phone does not have the best camera in it(!!). Anywho I think what’s left is some more accented colour in the flowers above and also…. I see now that the light on the girl in blue dress are quite fucked up, I guess my head must have wandered to some other place…or I just did what I thought felt good… better do somehting about it or else I’ll just end up being annoyed. It’s time to finish it up otherwise I’ll just mess it all up!
