Hi everyone!


After Finaland’s 100 yrs birthay in 6.12.

we celebrate again.


8.12. is

Jean Sibelius and Finnish music day.


Here’s one of my favorite Sibelius music, Finlandia.



“Finlandia, Op. 26, is a tone poem by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

It was written in 1899 and revised in 1900.“

My gouache painting was inspired by Sibelius’s music…

I’m trying to learn how to draw eyes.

I cut these eyes from a magazine and tried to copy them with a  soft pencil.

Huh, not easy but I’m not giving up.

More coming later! 🙂

I loooove Sibelius’s music.

Finlandia is long (about 8 minutes) but worth every second.

Hope you like it too!
