My orders were to lay down with my leg high, sigh, so this week has been a long one. And while I am not really aloud to run around doing stuff at all, since I shouldn’t put pressure on my ankle, the sun has been out and about for like aaaaaaall days I have been on the couch!! MEH!!

15 minutes

Blog, Creativity

My bearded man got the idea to make the time for 15 minutes of creativity after new years. I will probably not join him every day but as he says as well, you do have 15 minutes a day to put your mind into something, and now I have been at for a hundred minutes or so. My intention is still to make time as I pease and then be pleased with my effort, that way I can’t give myself bad concious, because since when should you about something you like doing, just saying!

I practised my digital skills today, somehow I feel better than I was when I was like seventeen, even though I haven’t really practised the digital painting and that 🙂

First I did this very stiff drawing where I just felt like I was sitting weird, holding the pen weird and everything… but then I just took another paper and just went at it, loose in hand and just…

träning faces

This was not really made to make something out of it, more like just loosen up.

And then this came out of it…

I have soooo much more to learn, today I noticed the pros of the buttons on my wacom, imagine the bliss *haha*

Maybe my 15 minutes should be some digital painting ❤ I feels like a good idea right now 🙂

Art studio time

Blog, Creativity

Yesterday I just picked up a brush I have had laying aorund for a while, but I haven’t dared using it because it is very soft and sooo nice…but I did it yesterday, I used it!

It is a brush with badger hair, I can’t remember which medium it was supposed to be used to buuuut I used it with oil colours and it worked perfectly!!

I continued working on a comission and then moved on to one of my own projects I started with ages ago.

Sorry for bad photos, but when the oils aren’t dried it is really hard to take a fair photo of it all. I think I’m coming back to oils actually, I like the fact that when I mix the colours I want they don’t dry like acrylics, though acrylics is really nice to use to base the canvas. I had another canvas standing around with a finished base and I started another painting with acrylics. I am thinking about using oils on the final layers, just to experiment 🙂

I am not really sure where this acrylic one is going but I guess I will find out soon enough.

Practise my wacom skills

Blog, Creativity

I really like my painting sofware, I use the Clip Studio Paint ❤

I just hit it tonight and went ahead with no sketch and a green surface and pretended it was a painting, like I usually do when I paint with acrylics or oil paint 🙂 I think I like this way of working so I will probably try out this a few more times during my winter break that is coming up.

2017-12-15

I realise when looking at it now that I probably could have worked a bit more with the contrasts 😛 I will have to go back checking it out tomorrow again and see what I think. I did this kind of fast, I think I used like just above an hour to do it, so time-wise I think it is going better and better 🙂

 

Have a nice weekend ❤

Collecting good feelings

Blog

My weekend started off with some after-work, during this pleasant treat I found my new fave red wine! *Thumbs up* The bad thing, it will be quite an effort to get hold of it for my own shelfs.

On saturday I saved my little sister, she had done something weird with her glue gun soooo I bought a new one for her and delivered it, I was happy because I got coffee ❤

The evening continued with a very nice datenight out and about with my bearded man ❤ we know this really good place just around the corner form where we live ❤

And besides visiting mom today I have been quite bored. I guess it is good to be bored sometimes…or something…so instead bugging my friends over texts I just went ahead drawing…which got me to inking and painting and actually doing a piece feel quite good about ❤

This might even get into my portfolio later on 🙂

I am in love ❤ Out of all brush pens I have tried so far this i the best one, AND I can refill it! It’s the Zig Kuretake Brush pen ❤

I had a drawing laying aorund so I tried it out and hten I washed some FW acrylic inks over since it was an underwater drawing 🙂

This was my first try with this brush pen sooo more to come later on, I did a few more small drawings later last night and those felt a bit more controlled with the lines and all ❤
