    Acrylic painting: Wolf (WIP #01)

    Hurray, it’s weekend finally! For me weekend usually means painting. And because my last flower painting is finally finished I got to start a new thing and this time I chose to paint… a wolf! I’ve never painted a wolf yet so I’m very excited about this project because it’s my favourite animal. I didn’t have much time to work on it yet but below you can see some photos of what I managed to do in about 1,5h yesterday. Part 2 | Part 3

    Testing new Mijello Peel-off palette

    First art post after a long while! I really missed it. As some of you may know – one of my favourite traditional art media is acrylic paints. Just like any other paints you have to have a place to keep and mix this medium while painting – a palette. Most of the traditional artists I know paint either with oils or watercolours, so many things about acrylics I have to discover on my own, including what palette is the best for acrylics and which one I like the most. The first palette I was using was a cheap watercolor plastic palette, the kind you can buy in supermarkets (and I believe that’s where I got mine) with round-ish shape, recesses for paints and a hole for a thumb.

    Kurecolor markers colour chart

    I do hope this blog will not be a one-post blog but I barely got any time to do anything besides work, sleep and painting.But! I’m really glad because finally I managed to make a Kurecolor colour chart. I’m gradually trying to make colour charts of all markers I have and some of them are really easy to find (like tons of Copic colour charts) or this Pro-/Brush Marker colour chart (it’s awesome!). Unlike Kuretake Clean Color, a blank Kuretake Kurecolor chart is (almost?) nonexistent on the Internet so I wanted to make my own one for a while now and today finally I made it 🙂 It’s just edited colour chart from Kuretake website but still – it’s something. The image below is only a preview of the chart. To download the full version right click THIS LINK and choose “save target element as…”. It’s a png fine with…

    Markers testing

    *coughs* First things first and since this is my first post here I feel obligated to say “hi”. So – Hi 😉 But seriously – I felt this strong need to get a place where I’d be able to write and post freely whatever I want, since on my website i only want to post finished art and places like Facebook Page, tumblr or Instagram are not good for long posts. So here I am and for a good start I have some art markers tests/short review. They are not big tests of huge amount of markers but still it’s something I did and someone may need it. Like I could in the future when I forget everything but shhhh.
