Another week has flown by and it's Friday already -
where did the time go?
I have made another mixed media piece for Art Journal Journey, masculine-feminine, Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin; Moo Mania and More, Numbers and Kim Delow's Friday Face link.
I painted an A3 sheet with gesso, and stamped into it while wet with a flourish stamp to texture it. The Stencil of Einstein was printed over a photo of one of his notebooks, fussy cut, and placed on the page, surrounded by lots of stenciling, especially numbers. The quote is from Einstein and very fitting for our masculine-feminine theme.
I treated myself to a cappuccino at an ice-parlour this week, and sat outside, watching the world go by, and sketched some of those round about. I used pencil, and worked them over back home with charcoal and pastel chalks. This girl was sitting there with a friend:
I will show the others in the course of the next days.
I met various animals, birds and insects while out and about.
The young rabbits were not at all shy:
This huge snail was oozing its way over the path after a rain shower:
This looks like a punk caterpillar:
I Googled it and found out that it feeds on nettles and turns into a peacock butterfly:
This dear little raven was sitting on the grass in front of the castle ruins, squawking for his Mum to come and get him:
He's looking up to the window where his anxious parent was also squawking at him (or me?)
I think it must have been his first outing all alone.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
