A lot of stuff


"Book of colors"

"Drifting log"

I have been painting like crazy again.

I finished the first one today. It took basically 3 nights to paint. its made from reference photo i took back at the summer cabin.

Second one is just a quick 2 hour sketch, I was facinated by all that blueness in the kids room the other day and i took a reference photo. When i took it i had to memorize few of the important colors (mostly those greens in the shadows),which were super necessary so i could get this going on a right direction.

Third one is painted yesterday, it was really a great weather. Sadly the sun effect turned out to be a bit mellow in this one. Other than that it was great to be there.

We have also been painting with the kids. Here is few pictures from that.
Its amazing to watch kids to paint. Definately a learning experience and super fun, and messy of course. :)
