Learning never exhausts the mind – Leonardo Da Vinci
“I love tulips better than any other Spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace, and next to a hyacinth look like a wholesome, freshly tubbed young girl beside a stout lady whose every movement weighs down the air with patchouli. Their faint, delicate scent is refinement itself; and is there anything in the world more charming than the sprightly way they hold up their little faces to the sun. I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.”
― Elizabeth von Arnim, Elizabeth and her German Garden
January is coming to an end and during last weekend I started a new painting. This time, I am using acrylic paints on cotton canvas and the subject is a forest in Sweden. It is a work in progress, at the moment. Wishing a good new week to everybody 🤗🎨❤
Along the path, you may find flowers and new wings. Will Spring and its fragrances arrive soon?
– Khalil Gibran
Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms without the aid of the seasons
Here we go. On a Winter Sunday afternoon of the new year 2023, we start sketching and paiting again. Tulips and gerberas are among the preferred floral subjects. Dip the brush in watercolors and then create, leaving light traces of color on the cotton paper. New ideas come in the air and we are here to wish everybody marvellous time filled with art.
You start drawing a line and then you keep on drawing
“You can’t do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh.” John Singer Sargent
