another watercolour girl

I'm late for Paint Party Friday this week. Work commitments and study commitments are wriggling their way into my life. But I love it, despite the busyness :-)

I painted another watercolour girl. I have so many of these drawings in my journal but it's hard to find the time to paint them. I love doing it though.


And here are three more weeks of diary-pages. From now on I hope to keep up with it every week.




I rediscovered my Dylusion sprays. I love the bright strong colours, but I hate the fact that they stay water soluble. So I hardly ever use them. But they are perfect to use in combination with watercolours.

I changed my writing too. My messy non-dominant handwriting was really starting to annoy me, so I tried something I used to do as a kid: writing while holding a ruler underneath it. At least it looks a bit less messy, plus it's a fun way to write.

I now really need to start my yearly calendar, but since I painted so little this year it's going to be hard to find enough images. I will have to use images from older work again. Plus I might make a calendar of my roadmap-faces. Hope to show a few pages next week already :-)

Well, that's it for this week. Except for the funnies of course ;-)










and the more serious ones ....






Thanks for your visit! Hope all is well with you! Wishing you a beautiful day, and something to look forward to in the weekend! See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥

  7. Your art is always wonderful and it's good to know that someone else used a ruler to write with when they were younger ( I don't do it now, but would if I made the kind of art you make :). And ... your funnies are the best!!! I am laughing out loud and my husband is dying to know what is so funny ... I will show him because he too will LOL :) Thank you, Denthe ...

  9. ahhh my friend, it's always a pleasure visiting you and your blog. I think a calendar done with map faces would be awesome! Great idea and I'm so glad you're loving your new work. Everyting you paint looks so great, even with so little time you're still fitting it all in. Good Girl! :o)
