Evening and scallop

 Click image to enlarge!
Evening in Varanger
For Rains promt this week, digital edit.

For quite some time I wanted to try something with this scallop. 
4 days ago I gathered my unused oil colors and a pink paper I had. I did not want too much oil on my pencils as I knew it is very differnt from acrylics, so I decided to fingerpaint it. 

Scallop in Oil on A4 pink paper
After several days this piece is still not dry. Guess that was the end of my oil adventure! 

Masked face!
When I walked in my destroyed forest yesterday I found this mask hanging on a twig. I brought it home to throw it away but decided to have some fun with it. 
 I guess you can call this "mixed media". 

Finally the Corona makes shopping harder. I wanted to buy Watercolor paper but found none. It is gone from the shops and noone knows when it might be available again. I still have lots of other papers but they can´t be used for aquarelle/watercolor. So for now I only have a few sheets left for watercolor. And, two small canvases I can use. 

So, for now I have colored paper and the photographic paper to work on. And the computer!
I´ll manage. 

For you who followed me on Instagram I have to tell you I am out of there now. 
I had an app that allowed me to post from my computer. But it got 
wrong somehow and started to shot me out. I had to prove my id and change pw more times then I want to. Now I could not even do that. So, my IG time is over. 
But I am  still here in blogland!

Take care everyone!

Door, leaf and ballerina

 Click image to enlarge!
Watching his dream girl!
This is my travelling companion Andreas from my trip to Varanger. He is watching his dreamgirl inside my freezer! 

Enlarged from the working file! This composite is created of 6 images; 2 muchrooms I photographed, one lady (free from internet), my empty freezer, Andreas and the door from an outdoor museum I visited. 
So, this is for Rains promt of Doorways and Alleys this week. 

The Maple leaf
I saw some leafs in a dirty ditch, it looked quite interesting. So, it ended up like this in Photoshop. 

The paint from the roller last week, I peeled it off. 

The ballerina!

I painted a new background in acrylic color. I had the circle cutout earlier in an OH- sheet. The problem seem always to be to stop the paint to flow under the sheet.

It is Aprils fool today. And as it is Easter too I wish you all a Happy Easter! 
I saw it on the almanack. Since I retired I have problems keeping track of holidays. I thought it was next week! 😀

I am now scheduled for the first vaccine shot!
