Compositions – Painted blue skies

Been trying new things this spring, tried painting the sky. With acrylics. I’ve been thinking I should do more small studies too, but there’s just been the thought and this one in a notebook so far.

Compositions – Supplies and the studio

Some new paint, there was a sale at my local art shop, exited about the Silk Purple and Wedgewood Blue. Sad to hear they are discontinuing all Daler Rowney products from their store. I’ll miss the system 3 acrylics, they were my first acrylic paints. Still working on some quick acrylic studies, and I have no idea where to store them since they’re a bit bigger that my regular watercolors. This pile is still on my desk, it’s been there for over a month now.   All images from my Instagram account ByMaritaBliss some taken with my phone, some with my …

Compositions – Thrift finds, watercolor brushes and hair

I thrifted this weird dolls-head type thing many, many years ago. It’s so delightfully creepy. Never had flowers in it though, but I do keep my watercolor brushes there. Stil trying to keep up with the purple hair and also painting some acrylic skyscapes. All images from my Instagram account ByMaritaBliss some taken with my phone, some with my camera

Compositions – Acrylic Studio Phthalo blue

I needed a blue for my continued obsession with clouds and skyscapes. Now I can actually start painting some. I read that Phthalo blue was the color to get. I already had one, but it was a Phthalo (red hue). A lot warmer than what I wanted, no good for a bright, sunny day. I also got some other paints and some brushes. All set.

Compositions – Lavandula

Some images from my Instagram feed. I finally dyed my hair purple, and it lasted for about a week, purple apparently fades in UV light and it’s been uncharacteristically sunny for early autumn Norway. Well, at least it fades to silvery-blonde. I’ve been panting a bit with acrylics again, it’s been abut 10 years so it takes a bit of getting used to. But I like it. More to come soon.

Compositions – Granite

Another Instagram mood series. I am in fact obsessed with these grey Nike Airmax sneakers. But due to the light color of them, I’m also terrified of wearing them outside.

Compositions – Like the ocean

Blue from my Instagram feed. A kitty hiding from the Stranger Things monster, a mixed media drawing and blueberry breakfast. Sometimes I want blue hair, but then I remember what happened the last time I tried. And just; NO THANK YOU.

Compositions – Asphalt

Some grey pictures from my Instagram feed (there’s a lot of them), mixed in with a bit of doggie cuteness. And Mim is in fact a pokèmaster, in case you where wondering.
