Continuation of Mixed Media

As promised I wanted to show you other thing I'm working on with Mixed Media: collage, painting etc.
Sadly I haven't been able to do more drawings, some pre-work stuff and of course our new pooch! :D

First things first!

This is the work in progress of the first painting:

I like the cherry blossom and the same style as previous post with the background lining, ending up in thick lines around the main subject. 

For my second painting, I wanted to use a "mask" as I had seen at a recent post by Caatje's blog. But of course it didn't really go as planned...

Tape basically ripped most paper off hahaha :P

But then I continued and this was the final result. With so much going on in Spain, Greece, Syria, Mexico.. allot of violence on the streets. I thought some lyrics of Calle 13 would be appropriate. 

Finally to end this post I welcome Tjido! "ch-ee-doh" our Icelandic Sheepdog puppy!
I might start a small blog about him, his breed is not very common, and it was quite hard to find information about him apart from the breeding standards and history. I will let you know :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Mixed media painting & A'dam

Hello fellow artists and readers! :D

We are back in the Netherlands! And thankfully we had a few days of sun before it became total autumn...

I cleaned out my art supplies and got excited about drawing and painting again. Although I realized I left 90% of my brushes in Mexico... duh... so i won't see those until x-mas. Sigh.. typical.

But the reason they were left behind is the following mixed media painting :) I am enjoying using old stuff that lies around to add it to my paintings. And well this was done at my parents home, where i found a childhood book about plant that don't flower, like fungi. TOTALLY boring when you are a kid, but it was sooo fun to read now, and the pictures are incredible.

I'm working on another similar piece of mixed media right now as a gift. But I forgot to take a picture of it :P

Finally a quick sketch of my delicious dutch dinner the first week home! :D YUM!
More drawing will be coming since my job has been delayed for a few months due to paperwork- good news since we are picking up our puppy on sunday!!!!!!

Hope you are all doing fine, and enjoy!
