New watercolour portrait

A portrait coming to life. I am working without any model, so I never know what expression that will come through in the portraits. It is very exciting to watch who the different "visitors" are.

I am, though, deliberately aiming to explore something else than just a "pretty" portrait. I want to explore and express the wide variety of the human emotions and psychological states through the watercolour medium, not only the "beautiful" and "perfect".

Something completely different in the background!  - as you can see I have also been working on painting of a colander.

More red berries

This week I have actually had the patience to explore the same motive more than once!

Kind of cherries

Today`s little painting is of some red fruits of some kind. Perhaps cherry tomatoes.

Watercolour potato stamps!

 I just wanted to show you this quite childish, but fun project and picture that me and my husband made this week! As we have just moved into a new apartment, and we needed something on the walls, we wanted to make a picture ourselves - together! So - he made these, I have to say fantastic stamps out of potatoes!
 Then we put on my watercolours - and stamped a big sheet full of exotic animals!
 It is now brightening up the kitchen. It is pretty childish - but we had really fun making this "art" work!
Another project coming up is to fill another big sheet of paper with funny cats! Here is the start of it!
