Friday inspiration


Here are two nice and fun exercises to get out of your comfortzone and just play around with colours.  Take two papers or if you got canvases, put a timer on 2 min (I used my phone) paint on the first paper for 2 min, then jump over to paint 2 min on the other and then 2 on the first again. Keep on for 4 rounds (2×4).

Next exercise is play with contrast colours, I choosed blue and orange and painted 10 min X 2 (total 20 min with short break).



These exercises are from the bloom true bootcamp  ( 4 weeks of totaly free inspiration!) from the painter Flora Bowley. I just love Floras way of making art, she have some really great tips and trix to help you out and do some fun exercises.

Have a nice playful weekend!

My GTS submission Anderssons milk


Final drawing

Although I knew the GTS competition was in the middle of the summer vacation I decided to take part as it is a very good and fun competition. With a slow slow internet on the phone I downloaded the brief called “little terrarium” for me a terrarium is something you have snakes and lizards in but soon I understood it was a terrarium with plants and small worlds phu! you should make a wallart picture that you like to hang on your wall and it should also include a word. With no computor I took what I had, my small sketchbook and the guoachcolours and started. I think the summer mood made me want to make something calm and very simple and pretty soon I found my colour schedule, and the best of office places. Below you see some of my paintings I did and the office. I didn´t get into the top 50 and next round but I had alot of fun time makeing my small paintings and I wish all the luck to the semifinalist who made beautiful psc. Have a look at the top 50 here and if you like a visual party have a look at all the 999 entries here.
