my first Ikebana

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?

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)

On aika aktivoitua muuton jälkeen kuvamaailman pyörteisiin

(vaikka kaikki tavarat ei vieläkään ole löytänyt omaa paikkaansa…)

 

Lokakuun teemana on ‘ympyrä’ jonka jokainen osallistuja tulkitsee tavallaan.

Yritin mandalaa tänään muttei oikein napannut…

Tässä kaksi ensimmäistä (kuudesta) kuvaa:
