Monday Randoms

I’m taking a walk every day despite the gloomy weather. I wonder how the clothespin got there?

Painting Winter: Background Progress

Here’s today’s winter birch forest painting status!
This morning I glued a first layer of birch trees onto the background, along with a few leaves and yellow grass. The trees were too pale, so I had to add an extra layer of dark gray. Now I will work on adding some texture to the snow on the floor before gluing the foreground trees.

What is keeping you busy today ?

Painting Winter

Snowy trees || by marion

The snow came early this year.

I decided it was a good time to get started on the winter version of my birch forest series.

It was the kind of snow that stays on the trees. I just love it, when this happens.

The birches are ready to be cut.

It was winter wonderland last week. Now everything is melting again.

Funny coincidence: this afternoon, I ran out of white paint.

Winter Village

Winter Village || Watercolors, watercolor pencils and cut paper collage || bymarion
I’m hesitating between “Winter Village” or “How I maintained my sanity during an intense couple of weeks”. I guess it’s a little bit of both 😉

Inspired by this walk and this scene.

Candlelight And A Cup Of Coffee

Candlelight and a cup of coffee || Cut paper collage, watercolor and gouache || bymarion

Not as carefully finished as I would have wanted, but still in time to post for this week’s Illustration Friday: the theme was “Shelter”, so I felt I could not skip it.

Some Things

Red House In The Snow

Something our neighbors taught us: when nature gives you free insulation, pile it against the walls of your house.

Something critical about academia, made poetic. Found through matters mathematical, and very much agreed upon.

Something that got me thinking: “create to share” vs “share what you create”. Eileen’s blog is full of inspiring posts about illustration. I also enjoyed that one, for example.

Something animated,

and something from photographers I enjoy following: moments in black and white before morning coffee and after a short swim.

Have a cozy weekend.

Found!

Winter Woods Photo || bymarion

Remember that piece? Well, I actually found that place yesterday! Some days it feels like art imitates life, some days it feels like life imitates art. Either way, this is my happy place.
