Hi everyone!


Previous pencil & charcoal post is here.


This week we had to draw Nefertiti with charcoal.

We had a plaster statue as a model…






Here’s the first one





Paint Party Friday



This second one was first totally ‘coaled’ and then I ‘draw’ with

brush and eraser.





I have two pics for Theme Art challenge

September’s ‘geometric art’

Hi everyone!


I’ve drawn with pencil,

a lot!

Here are a few for


Theme Art challenge in September: ‘geometric art’



Teemataidetta geometrisin kuvioin…
















In our course ‘from drawing to painting’ medium was charcoal.

We did ‘a hand’ – huge hand.

First one was just outlines and the second was first colored with charcoal and then

‘drawn’ with chamois (and brush).

These are not ready but shows the idea…

it’s time for new and old challenges…

I started a new course ‘from drawing to painting’.


We had to draw a composition which didn’t fit on paper,

make items bigger than they are…

It was fun but very difficult!

I had two items

sunglasses case and hand cream tube






I didn’t have time to finish this but it was good start for a new season…

Next drawing is for Theme Art challenge September’s  ‘geometric art’

This I call ‘movement’.

Nice looking but hard wind blows berries/fruits all over our wooden terrace.

After two weeks we’ll escape to France for a week

to meet family members from different parts of the planet…

We rent a huge house with a pool, outdoor kitchen etc.

Can’t wait to relax and enjoy summer over there!

(Here at home our renovation project continues now outside;

terrace enlargement,

we built a small shed for garden tools etc. that needs painting plus

this and that small things.)



How’s your life???

This week has been sanding and painting.

All sauna window frames painted,

today we’ll get sauna benches ready but

we have to wait first ‘löyly’, to sit inside,

for a week or so. We have time…


We’ve eaten lots of fruits and berries this summer.

The other day we ate pears.
