From My Garden

Watercolor just for myself. It would be a pity to ignore the summer in the garden!

Sultan Daughter

This legend is about a Christian knight who was rescued from the slavery by his true love; they stayed together forever, never mind the knight’s wife waiting in the castle… and they got blessing from the pope. Sounds like a scenario for early Hollywood movie, doesn’t it? I can hardly belive this story comes from Middle Ages.

Ickendorf

Each next legend in Astrid’s set is more crazy then the previous one, I think. This one is about an underwater town, to be seen just once a year and for a short while.

Carrot Story

Another German legend illustrated for Astrid, and this one is quite funny…

Super Fast Santa

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.
