I just made a simple quick painting of a ladies head. It's made with acrylic paint, just a few colors, white, orange, brown and green.
All in favour of red, just use the camera of your phone. Those in favour of orange like me (I'm still Dutch you know, orange is our national colour), just use your photo camera. This painting was painted by me, but jet again I was a full copy cat. The original painting I saw in a comic book from the wizard of Oz. It is currently hanging above my bed, nice to see when (trying to) fall asleep.
I made this during my painting lesson, I've never tried chalk before. This was the version that you could dilute with water. Some of the colours became very bright, more so then I had imagined before. But after a few washes with water, it got better.
Because of our queens birthday, all people could make some kind of art for her and upload it to the Dutch main news channel. The best 65 were selected to hang at palace 'het Loo'. Regretfully my painting was not chosen, but there were in the end 2000!!! art objects that the jury picked from. I fully acknowledge that many of the other paintings were way better then mine. Although I fully love my queen and admire the way she runs her kingdom, I don't fancy hanging the royal pair above my bed, so I think it will get a new coating, perhaps a field of flowers or something, I already got a bunch in the right lower corner to start with :-).
Le Chat Noir will be added to the cat posse of a friend of mine. It is now proudly hanging in her living room. Just a little warning to my friends cats: Le Chat has claws and I made his nails rather long. He shall use them if need be.
This is an easy and quick project to do, at least if your sticking with an image not bigger then the size of a card and quite big elements. I made this one with a friend. It supposed to be an apple orchard, can you tell? We added the red dots to be sure.
Hi, I'm Bregtje. Here you can find me with my head between piles of paper, sticking stuff in arty albums and brushing away with paint. But I also can be found with my head in a newly home made cupboard or above the kitchen stove or even up side down in the garden! And now I'm developing a new hobby to add to my ever growing project list: blogging about it all! Please find my Garden blog, Kitchen blog, Homemaking blog and Art blog here!
