Mixed media painting ‘Coast of Stonehaven, Scotland’

Hello

Here is my new painting ‘Coast of Stonehaven, Scotland’

Scottish Seascape

I painted this based on the photograph I took when I visited Stonehaven a few weeks ago.  Stonehaven is a lovely seaside town in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Here are some photos I took..

After I had done the rough underdrawing, I used drawing inks by Winsor&Newton to start painting. I found they are great for painting the sea and the sky!

Next I used Conte pastel to paint the cliffs and the land

Used watercolours and inks to add more details and contrast to the picture

I wanted to keep it rather abstract, so I did not paint too much details…and here is the finished piece !

New Painting ‘Geisha Lady’

Hooray! I finished this new painting of a geisha lady this weekend:)
Hope everyone had a nice weekend:)

I have been experimenting with some mixedmedia techniques, and with this, I used watercolour, acrylics and
monoprinting methods.

First, I painted some patterns which I was inspired by butterflies, and then drew the lady in pencil.

Then I painted the lady in watercolour.

I used monoprint techniques to create the background. First I painted some patterns in acrylics on a glass, then I flipped the glass and pressed it on the artwork to transfer the image.

Finally, I painted more details in acrylics and added some texture with white acrylic paint over the background area.

Hope you enjoyed it:)
