{Peach}

Hello Lovelies!

It has been a long time and I have been missing blogging for while. I think it is a good time to go back to write about my experiences with drawing and painting.

Lately, well, in the past three days, I have also started to write a bit. I am not a very good writer, neither very committed, but I do like to write (I do journaling, a LOT) and I have too much imagination running wild inside my head, so I decided to let them fly to the paper (or screen 😉 ). So, if, like today, I have a prompt related to some drawing/sketching/painting theme, I will be sharing them together.

In the case of this post, my sketches were inspired by my writing prompt” Peach!

Hope you all enjoy it!

Keep Inspired!

Peach

  She had a prompt, her first, and she was thinking about it for the past two days. A five minutes writing prompt and nothing about it would pop up in her mind. Completely blank!

  Well, not completely true. She was exaggerating. The first thing she thought about was its colors. That gorgeous shade of… PEACH. Gorgeous! She wanted to paint it, draw it and get lost in the colors. But she wasn’t sure of the shape. She made a mental note to google it later and use it and the colors in some painting exercises.

  “Peach. I don’t even like peach!” she though. Another lie. In fact she didn’t remember how did it taste. “Sweet? Wet? I really don’t know…” she wasn’t sure if she remembered the taste of the fresh fruit or the taste of the compote.

  Now all she can think about is that she must, she NEEDS to try peaches in all its glorious colors.

{Sketching}

Two weeks ago (I think by now is three weeks ago) we went to a holiday on the beach side, where I spent most of my time picking shells with my kid and drawing.

So relaxing!

My pallet & “a walk in the forest”

Last week I went to a paint workshop at Atelier Molenpad.
It was GREAT!
The atmosphere, the people, Daniella, the teacher, amazing!

Intuitive painting was just what I need to ignite my painting/drawing/experimenting process again!
Go with the flow of the moment, what do you feel, not judge and have FUN and learn new techniques in the process! 😉

Next week I start a 3 months course there! (Thanks to my hubby and sister)
I can’t wait for it. To paint every week, to keep Inspired! 🙂

Since the workshop I’ve been drawing more and experimenting with all kinds of materials.
I promise updates!

To all my lovelies a great weekend!
Keep Inspired!
Keep Creative!

Practice (warm/cool challenge)

Hello!

Here I am again practicing Mandalas with my flowers…
And since the March challenge of the Sketchbook Challenge was about warm and cool colors… (see here)

Unfortunately when I was practicing I didn’t have my full rainbow with me… So I was a bit stuck on those two colors…
But you know what? I liked!
(plus it reminded me of the challenge and the color chart I read about at the bluefire jellyfish magazine

I will keep practicing and trying up with the color chart and share later on with you guys!

Keep Inspired!
Keep Creative
and mostly Keep Practicing!

Hey lovelies!

So after my inspiration and creation drawing from last week I started on a flowing with flowers!

And I am really on a nesting mood too… So I’ve added some feathers to it… Guess is is the cold weather and a seasoning calling family close by 🙂

And since Christmas is close by… Why not some Christmas decor along!? 😉

I had lots of fun doing those!
Hope you enjoy it!

Desde a semana passada, depois da inspiração e a criação que eu estou na onda das flores!
E junta esse frio e o Natal chegando, vontade de estar em família, de ninho aconchegante…
Bom, resolvi fazer minhas flores em um ninho de penas e folhas agradável! 🙂
E até adicionar umas bolinhas de Natal 😉
Pq não?!

Tudo pela inspiração!
Tudo pela criatividade!
