This is my page for the January challenge @ dolldreams. The challenge is to use shades of gray to colour your drawing. I created a doll on 5x7 inches Aquarelle arches watercolor paper. It is a 100% cotton and hot pressed paper. I used my Copic markers. Used markers: W00, W1 and W3.
It is Winter. Today we had snow. It is cold .... This painting symbolizes my desire for some sunny, warm weather (background). The tree symbolizes the ark days in the Winter. No complaints about the Winter, but warm weather (no, not hot weather!) just feels more comfortable:-))
A gift from Adriana from www.dolldreams.ning.com. A dolly to paint. Love it! Hope 2013 will be a good year for everyone☺
The wings of the heart and the bow are coloured with golden acrylics. Very nice to see:-)
First prompt: Could you predict next year, 2013? What do you think would happen (in your life, in your family, in your environment, in the world?
Second prompt: How did you spent last month? What did you enjoyed the most last month?
These are my first pages of 2013; sent to the UK. My partner already received the pages. The journaling on the pages says a lot. I hope 2013 will bring some changes in work and house/home. It is time for me to move on another job and another home. No disaster if these changes are not achieve, but these are changes I would like. I need new challenges in my daily work and I need a home with more space.
On the second page I expressed the things I enjoyed them most last month. I love the feeling of sharing, happiness and joy around Christmas time.
My daughter went with her school class to an art exposition one of these years (?) and they received this book to answer question about art. "Kunst Kijken" means "Watching art". I thought it was such a waist to throw this book away since the cover is very sturdy and the pages sure could carry paint. gesso and water. Well, the book proofed itself!:-D Some projects I created in this book, yes another art journal book for me!
