A small gouache picture which I want to send to someone as a New Year card.

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).

Harvest Moon Picture

xxpixieFound in a drawer, unfinished… this was a sketch for an illustration, but so many changes were requested that I have never used this piece. Now I have added some color.

Little Folk’s Mushroom Palace

Just for fun. Gouache on brown paper.

Dwarf Christmas Tree

Another present for a friend, and one more experiment with gouache paints. There are no trees of right size for a dwarf; I thought miniature cactus would be ideal.

Old Good Times in color

Old Good TimesFinished! Background is painted with watercolor paints, and the rest is done with watercolor pencils. I have recorded some work-in-progress stuff and now I need to think how to use it. But not at once. Now sun is shining and our  animals want to go out.

Mathilda’s Dwarf House is ready

The house has got four inhabitants: Dwarf Mom, Dwarf Dad and two kids. My family complains I’ve cut it out too carelessly and the carton I have glued to the floor to make it stiffer is absolutely disgusting, but they are all old plane-model makers and in my opinion they have too high expectations (and where have they all been, when I was working? It’s easy to complain later!)

200!

WordPress informed me kindly I’ve published 200 posts so far. Good heavens, I must have done 200 pictures since I’ve started – what a huge  pile of paper! Greetings to all my followers, those wonderful patient people, who sacrifice a bit of their time to watch the pictures and sometimes to  comment them, too. Thank you. No matter if we talk about cooking or painting watercolors,  it’s always very important to have some feedback – without it, how could one improve his/hers skills? Even this simple thing, the number of “likes”, is valuable indicator for me. It really helps, and I’m grateful to you all!

And for anniversary, I’ll publish something untypical… The whole thing has been just  glued together (there’s also a back wall, not to be seen here) and now it’s getting dry. Tomorrow I will try to make a photo! Dwarf House Flat
