Hope you are all doing well!
For Art Journal Journey, birds beasts and humans, and for Paint Party Friday I have another attempt at Van Gogh to share.
I tried to copy the portrait of his mother. The background is a brush-wipe sheet (A3), with added colours from pastel chalks. I drew and painted the portrait onto a separate sheet, painted it with water colours and pastels, fussy cut it, and fixed it to the background. The quote is also from Van Gogh. The black smudge under the portrait is my own invention!
Some pictures taken today, starting off before dawn:
We had a wonderful sunrise:
At the Rhine it was very cold and windy, the heron and wild geese didn't seem to mind:
I saw these beautiful cloud formations on my way home:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
