Gold, Silver and Art camp

Gold and Silver for Rains TAD


Happening!

I created this one earlier this week on a photographic paper. Quite small but fun to create. Tempera and all sorts of crap laying around. 


Having fun, joining ART camp.

I have not painted on wood before, neither have I painted with spray paint. So this is quite an interesting week. 
I did see an ad that there would be an Art-kollo this week. "Kollo" is an old Swedish term and means a camp for kids in the city to live in the countryside during 2 weeks in summer. It is more or less a camp. I joined a few when I was in school. 
Now they wrote a Kollo for all ages. 😂 Not school kids. The woman in charge was the one in our Art gallery, so I know her. I wrote a note to her. You said all ages! How about 70+ years old? 
I could almost feel her smile reading it. She quicky responded, sure, you are welcome!

So, for 4 days now I have attended that Kollo together with kids. I was the only one over 20 years of age. 😉 

Learned a lot actually. We painted on wood and those pieces will be placed in the forest nearby for people to come and see. There was several kinds of paint to use. Spray paint was one. I have never done that so I gave it a try. That was fun. But nothing I can do at home. And we used leafs and whatever we could use as templates and stencils.

Spraypaint


Testing spraypaint on thick paper. Using leaves as templates. Figuring out how the layes work. 

Art Campers



I will post more from these days later on. And there is one more day to go. If it´s not starting raining. And, tomorrow is July, already!

Purple day

 Click image to enlarge!
Curiosity!
Curiosity is a good way to learning new things. This is a painting wit acrylics on A3 watercolorpaper. the word and the yellow goldfish is created digitally. The two papers added are painted on small photopapers with acrylics. The diagonal pattern are created with a fork.

This is the painting above without any addition. I like it so I want to keep it as it is. 
Purple for TAD

This is what came out of the Purple day.

Cherish

Cherish Love fish
This is a painting with watercolor on an A4 paper. I used a stencil I have for parts of the background, Then painted over it and added the fish digitally. 
For TAD       ArtJournal 

  My Columbines on my balcony!
Red for TAD    

Female silhouette

For Nicoles Friday Faces I realized I have a few faces I draw when I was a teenager. Not much TV those days so you had lots of time to draw. I still have them. So I will share them, one by one. I even have a "selfie" 😁😎
When I was to post this one I see the one below shines through. And it dates the drawing. What shines through is the Boxing championship between Ingemar Johansson and Floyd pattersson. It took place in 1960 so this drawing is more then 60 years old. I did draw the match too as you can see. I might share that one too some day.

Kiwi mandala
 Mandala image and watercolor

Starting with TADs Yellow theme today. Not sure I am done with this. It is still taped on the board. But there is yellow.  The mandala was taken from a little book I have. It was quite fun to create the circular pattern around it. 

Fish in alien waterworld
