‘there’s a window’

 

I call my entry ‘Six can be one…’

 

 

 

Marraskuun teemakuun kollaasi ‘On ikkuna…’ valmistui kerralla.

Työnimi on ‘kuusi voi olla yksi’

On ikkuna keltainen

tai kultainen niin kuusi voi olla yksi. 🙂

Hi everyone!

 

What a beautiful autumn week we’ve had.

Sun’s been smiling and leaves are yellow, red…

 

This week we used oil pastels in the art course.

Not my thing.

I like to try all kinds of mediums and

realized that oil pastels are not for me…

We had to continue this sunflower oil painting (left side)

Normally I buy good quality mediums but these oil pastels were cheap,

very cheap and they feel cheap. Not good pigment and not pleasant to draw…

 

I didn’t have feeling to finish it

but here’s the result I did during the course

(we cut a copy of the sunflower painting, clued it on the paper and continued with

free style to make as one painting)

I’ve made only miniature drawings (sizes approx. 0.4-1 inch)

 

Lokakuun teemataiteeseen teen ainoastaan minisiluetteja, kooltaan n. 1-3 cm.
