Postage People Again!

Probably a lot of you remember my blog swaps featuring Postage People. Though these happened long ago, these creatures want to come to life from time to time, and when my sister announced a Postage People swap and I knew I had one week off work, it all worked together. I´m pretty sure that I won´t need all these ATCs for the swap (and I have some more half finished on my table), but as always I just couldn´t stop making them. If you haven´t tried them, just do to feel the addiction. I´ll never get tired of these.

Sketchbook playing

I got out my watercolour sketchbook these days and found an old crow sketch that I decided to work over with watercolours.

Today I´ve been watching Tamara Laporte´s video on Sketchbook Revival 2023 and drew and painted this fox while watching. As I only used watercolours and pencils and didn´t work on it after the video, it has lots of mistakes, not enough white etc., but for such a quick sketch, I´m happy with the result.

Spring Greens

The theme for this month´s Visible Image ATC swap was Spring Greens, so I knew I wanted to make an ATC that welcomes spring. 

The accompanying card was inspired by images of Chicago and its green coloured river celebrating St. Patrick´s Day. As always, the scan doesn´t show the shimmering mica sprays behind the city skyline ...

Chicken Eggs

Once in a year, I´m having a fabulous afternoon and evening together with 3 of my best friends, painting Easter eggs and having fun with cake, beverages, music and political discussions. It´s one my highlights of each year, but usually I only paint two eggs. This year´s eggs show chickens as I´ve loved painting my chicken postcard recently. I have used watercolours and several pencils and markers here.

When I saw that this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme was "Chicken", I thought "I know I have a matching stamp" ... then I didn´t find it tonight and drew my own chicken. Then I found that stamp but liked my own chicken so much more. Art is to be open to surprise yourself (and maybe others).
