A is for Astronaut




This weeks topic at illustration fridays is Space, so this little astronaut I been working on was right on time.

so many kind words

Ok I just need to share this as it made me really really happy. I just finished a painting class called “daring adventures in paint” made by one of my resent favourite painters
Mati Rose. She just made a blog post about the course and said these kind words about my dreaming of a star painting:  dreaming-of-a-star-anna-berger-web
Doesn’t this just make your heart happy? I love how Anna Berger weaves together bright, whimsical imagery to tell a story born of her imagination + inner wisdom (below). She also did a beautiful job keeping it light, maintaing the integrity of those fresh colors, and avoiding “mud”! The silver leaf star is a perfect final touch that emphasizes the story she’s telling. This piece is brimming with confidence and it definitely inspires me to be bolder.
Please read more about it here:

Thank you Mati for being so kind and a good teacher!! I can highly recomend this course as it is so beautiful done and very inspiering. There are several videos that are so well done and I can watch them over and over as they are so beautiful and bright.
Here is another painting I did after this one. It is called: The valley with two suns


yellow inspiration

yellow-inspirationIt is the last week of the e-course “Daring adventures in paint” by Mati Rose Mcdonough. Every week we got to treasure hunting an colour, as a very good to start to see colours in your everyday life. I start to show you my yellow treasure hunt. This is such a good and fun way to keep colours, shapes and patterns that could be your next inspiration for a drawing or painting.
