It’s that time again where I find myself wanting to paint, late at night. I decided to paint this cute teddy bear. I know it’s not the best painting (because the outline looks very childish, which im gutted about!) but I thought I would still share it with you guys.
It’s been a few days since I got back from Spain of a brilliant and well deserved holiday with my lover and family. Besides sun bathing on the lovely beaches, sipping cocktails and visiting PortAventura for a thrill seeking day we also did some sight seeing.
We visited Barcelona, La Pineda, Tarragona and of course Salou, which is where we stayed. During our explorations I managed to see various statues, sculptures and lot of bloody graffiti! The Spannish must love a good name tag here and there.
|Almost didn’t see this crazy piece of graffiti whilst walking around Tarragona.|
|Metal zebra patterned frame attached to appartments in Barcelona. Love this!|
|The famous La Sagrada Família church in Barcelona that was started by Antoni Gaudí in 1883.|
|Roy Lichtenstein’s Barcelona Head sculpture.|
|Finally, Javier Mariscal’s giant Lobster!|
So it seems like I have creativity bursts late at night. I fancied doing a new watercolour painting, especially as my paint and brushes I ordered had arrived. I had to test them out!
Again, I fancied painting flowers, I feel this is easing me into doing this type of art. I’m not the best painter but I hope you like it in some way. I think by me showing everyone what I’m doing is helping me in some way to be more confident about what I do/produce. I would love to eventually try and do some watercolour paintings like Katherine Asher (below), because I love her work!
In regards to my Summer Time List post, I wanted to do more creative things during my Summer break because I don’t want to enter my second year without doing anything productive. It would be pointless of me to carry on with my degree if I didn’t do anything.
On my ‘to do’ list I wanted to get back into more traditional art. So the other night I was home alone, the boyfriend was out with his friends so I decided to finally use my 6 year old unopened wooden art set box. The watercolour paint blocks where ok where as the brush was awful to use! Nevertheless I produced this watercolour and pencil painting of a daisy.
