OK... The last few months were a wild ride. Corona symptoms, but luckily not corona. Then news about my soon ending work contract. A family member who suddently passed away. Health issues of my partner and a surgery last week all combined with stress at work and the usual stuff were just a bit too much. I wasn't in the mood to touch any of the art supplies... Untill yesterday. So I painted this.

It's on new paper, which turned out difficult to handle. I will attempt it one more time soon. 🐈

A tiny update to the watercolour database was made and the whole range of Windsor&Newton Cotmans have been added. Enjoy and spread the word if you do. 😉

Suggestions on how to make this better are always appreciated! 💖

Sorry for being absent. Additionally to me being sick with "coldlike" symptoms, I have lost a family member last week. So I've created some symapthy cards. All painted in watercolours.

One day I will stop painting landscapes and paint more animals again.

I need vacation... September will be the month for me! No travelling due to covid though.

Sorry for bring quiet in a while. I was busy with work and the YouTube channel creating reviews. But I did some small postcard paintings. This is one of them.

I'm really hooked on landscapes right now. If you have pretty ones, feel free to tag me, so I can use them as a reference.

This weekend was so relaxing! I hope yours was too. 💖

I'm so excited for my two days off tomorrow and the day after! Just imagine, what I could do... Sleep in, have a super long walk with Dante, paint!

A !

As you might know, I'm building a watercolour database (sunandcolors.com). Today I've added handmade paints. Paintmakers often look for rare pigments and make paint of great quality. To support them, I've added links to their shops in the note section.

In the scan below you can see the swatches beging tested for staining.

Gouache, watercolour pencils and inks will be added too!

Last 5 colours of the new Schmincke super granulating colours were reviewed. What can I say? Great quality, but all convenience mixes. Still fun to play with.

People like to believe in conspiracy theories because the reality is much harder to accept: that the world we live in is shaped by mostly egoistic but mostly rational actions.

Hi! Just wanted to let you know, that we face a heat wave again. The last few years with major droughts and heats have left me exhausted... And I miss cold so much.

Climate change is a thing. I believe in science.

Hope you have mild weather my friends.

If you didn't know: there's a giveaway in my blog to celebrate my growing YouTube channel. Link in bio.

Painting little nonsence inbetween the layers of a bigger piece...

Outside of my little cozy corner the world is burning, people are beging killed for their skin colour, arrested for whom they love, discrimitated because of their sexuality or gender, die because of the virus that is spread by people who don't want to "miss out"... Time to realize that cozy days are over for all of us and it's time to act. EVERYWHERE!

LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality 

Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.

A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).

Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.

But wait, there's more.

Changed my mind and edited as fast as I could! New video with a review is online and this was the test painting!

Look at this amazing granulation.

Written review can be found in my blog, link in profile.

Now good night my friends!

Sorry, I didn't post in a while. Work is totally overwhelming right now and I've edited more videos this week than usually.

To give you something cute to look at, here's my puppy Dante.

Hi! There's nothing best than paint a little to relax from work. I have not figured out trees yes, but I'm working on it. ;)

Hope your day was fine! Wear your masks!

I feel like some companies work hard on improving their products, but some work really hard to make theirs worse...
