Invented color

 Click image to enlarge!

Todays theme at Rains is Inventions, below is my take on that 😇
First I created my own visor for protecting me from the Corona virus. It worked 
😁

Second, I "invented" a new color to paint with. It is created from the settling when making my own red wine. I always liked the color from that and used to photograph it in my bathtub when cleaning the the container. And made some digital work on that. This time I added some vinegar to it to avoid mold. 

Old time shutters!
In old times they did not have that much glas windows so for protection they used wooden shutters.

This one is created on A3 watercolorpaper using the red wine settlings and acrylic colors.
It was a lot of paint on that paper and it buckled heavily. I thought it was ruined. Also when it dried it cracked. It is impossible to flatten it so it can never go into a frame. But I like it!



Close up abstract of the above.
This is the lower right part of the painting to show the cracks. It is, kind of, a landscape of it´s own. 

Wine flower!

As I had a lot of leftover color I started to paint the flower. But the soft background happend in Photo shop.

Hand in hand

 Click image to enlarge!

Today I was using some older pieces and altered them a bit to fit todays Hand challenge. 
Hand in hand brings light!
My hand hodlding the hand you have seen before. A useful piece for artwork. 

Dressage in my hand!


Holding the Blue Crystal World in my hand!



Maori cave art!

This piece is painted on watercolor paper A4. Orange background is watercolor. The caveart is painted with acrylic color. This caveart I have on a T-shirt from New Zeeland that bought on a visit many years ago. I love it and was thinking of painting it for a while now. Now I figured out how to get the pattern from the T-shirt to the paper. Still, I made a mistake. I forgot that I have thinner brushes. The "hands" would look better painted with a thin brush. But next time I will. There is a lot of rock art in the world so, maybe, I will do more of them. 😍
