Welcome to the weekend on my blog

Guess what I am still doing real-world (as opposed to digital) mixed media art. But, I got to admit I am itching – really, really itching to get my hands on a digital brush on my iPad Pro or my Wacom Cintiq again. Soon.

But first things first. After finishing the series of wintery fantasy girls with different skin tones alongside Tamara Laporte’s online class ‘Winter Soul Flakes’, I started with a piece completely of my own imagination and doing. And, of course, it is not finished yet. I cannot even blame my work, which while I am busy, I am not really staying late at night.

Honestly, there was and partly still is a bit of in-decision – pretty unusual for me in real life, I may add – in the detail work, the finishing touches. But I am making progress. As you may see, this piece is a bit more 3D, I used a molding paste for some of the flowers’ stencils. The same molding paste I used when gluing flowers on to each other, to make them stand out a little and giving a bit more of a depth effect. Which works to some extent, but not quite as much as I had intended. So now, I am trying to bring out more of it. Once done, I will do the work on the butterflies, the background and – of course – the little girl’s hands, too.

And then – on to something else for a change. I always seem to feel the need for change. Do you know that feeling?

Anyways, have a wonderful weekend!




If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!
