I finished another Life Book 2017 painting yay!!!
This one is called flowers of gratitude and I do have a lot to be grateful for right now.
I started a new job which I absolutely adore and am so happy to have moved on from the company I’ve worked for for what seems like most of my life… ALL CHANGE IS GOOD!!
This painting took me out of my comfort zone somewhat as we were asked to paint a semi realistic yet whimsical portrait in watercolours.. a medium I have had little practice with.
But I love the bright colours of the flowers and the intriguing expressions on the lady’s faces.
I hope you like it too :)
Sketch and initial laying down of colour for a Life Book lesson
This is the actual crystal heart life book lesson that I deviated from quite a bit in the previous picture.
Its amazing how the same lesson can be interpreted so differently
This was inspired by a Life Book 2017 lesson that I shall be starting soon.
I wanted to visualised a dark crystalised heart that recieves pulses of light to make it beat again. :)
I listened to Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten by Arvo Pärt whilst making it as the bell chimes reflected the pulses of light awakening the dark heart.. I linked a youtube copy of the music below the photo of my painting
Work in progress
This painting was inspired by Effy Wild’s lesson for Life Book 2017, I love the colours!
