Hope you all had a good start in the new year.
Today started very misty and freezing cold, but the sun struggled through and gave us some blue skies later in the day, and it was great walking weather.
For Art Journal Journey I have another page for our theme 'Inspired by the masters II', and this time I was inspired by the contemporary Austrian artist Rosina Wachtmeister. She paints pictures which are always happy - smiling, stylised cats painted against bright and beautiful backgrounds, sunny landscapes - pictures which are full of life and whimsy.
I used a brush wipe / try out sheet in A3 for my background. I added some colour with my lovely, new pan-pastels. I drew the cat freehand and blocked it in with white gesso. Then I painted it with acrylics, oil pastels and felt pens. The sun was cut from self-adhesive yellow paper, and I dusted some pan pastels in red and yellow round it. A few flowers and birds, some washi tape, and a quote - that was it.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin.
The sun beginning to push through
Frozen leaves and grass
and a sweet little robin
and a beautiful, winter sunset.
Have a great day you all!
Take care, and thanks for coming by!
