Moomins’ Treasure Hunt

xxmoominsumm

A little free time picture in gouache and ink. Moomin family organized a treasure hunt the day when they had sailed away to have a picnic on the beach, and this is what Moomintroll had found… he fell in love with wooden maid’s eyes and it caused some complications.

Easter Hybrids

Most popular Easter motifs are bunnies, chickens and eggs; here you can see all in one. Happy Easter to everyone!

Gnome Miniaturist

Some Easter egg patterns are so intricate, that they are surely not painted by humans, don’t you think so? My first Easter picture this year. Gouache + Liquitex bottled watercolor. I have turned the camera on, so the painting process is probably going to be on YouTube soon. This is my recent New Year resolution: not to neglect my YT channel! (My other resoultions are: loose 3 kilograms and run a sketchbook daily, not every now and then. I’m not doing too well with neither of these tasks).

Joy of Ride

This is the famous frog from “Wind in the Willows”. True mixed media picture. It’s easier to say what is NOT used here: no oil paints for sure, since I do not own any.

Talking to Red Queen

xxxaliceredqueen

One more round Alice picture… This is the Chess Queen from the second book, not the blood-thirsty Queen of Hearts.

Ivy Fairy

Mixed media drawing, a bit of everything but mostly Liquitex inks and pencils.

Snowdrops

Watercolor picture based on a photo by Daykiney from DeviantArt. No real snowdrops here; too cold… Situation may change in a week or two. Things are going in right direction.

Alice In The Boat

xxaliceboaty

My favourite scene from Through The Looking Glass story in ink and watercolor (mostly! I have used a little of denser paints to finish this). The circle was masked around with masking fluid, so this picture really looks this funny way; I have no idea how to fit it in any standard frame, but maybe I manage to pass this problem to someone else, together with the picture.

Dorothy Melts The Witch

xxmeltingNobody steals shoes from Dorothy! Acrylics, no watercolor. I’m glad I have managed to finish it. Acrylic paint is resistant (or so I feel about it). It takes time to get where I want to be with my picture.
