Half completed! There will be a new book soon, Yule Spy by Roger Easton. And yes, the boy is going to get the green bike for Christmas – I think I can tell so much. How he gets it, this is in the book.

Day 10. Cover

Facebook art challenge, continued. “Cover”! I searched my photos and I could see I can paint one of two things: rural landscape covered with snow, or rural landscape covered with dry leaves. Everything’s rural about the place I live in. I have chosen leaves. it’s cold day, even without painting snow.

Day 9. Random

This time, a full-time picture. It’s based on the photo I took in my garden last year, and all this vegetation just spread itself. Poppies are winners in this category; seeds grow everywhere. I’m in control of less then 25% of my garden, I’m afraid.

Day 7. Material

We’ve got a castle in northern part of Poland made almost entirely of clay. Brick walls, ceramic tiles on roofs. I thought this would fit!

Day 5. Gift

Day 5. Gift. Yes, there is a connection! Very simple one. I have just looked around searching for the last thing someone had given to me. And here it is: three bottles of Ecoline watercolor, primary colors: magenta, yellow, cyan. Actually I have bought them myself but this was when I got an art shop voucher from my great mother-in-law. I have painted my personalized color wheel with them.

Day 4. Wild

Now the garden is full of them, but I have had to use a photo. The bird wouldn’t sit still for 20 minutes for me…

I’m two days late with this – the challenge is one piece a day! I hope to do better with the next sketch.
