Into the Forest We Go

The grey skies are back, yeah! It hadn’t rained for a long while. I love the sound of rain at night, I always sleep better. Spring is here!   This is a detail from the animation I’m working on. I’m having more and more fun every day. And a wallpaper

Waterfalls

I’ve always been enthralled by some aspects of Japanese and Chinese cultures. Lately, the pull has been so powerful that I started to study Chinese again, but not just pinyin, the characters too. I’m also tempted by Japanese, but as usual, I have far too much on my plate! Finally! It took nearly six months to complete this animation. The animation took just under two weeks, the painting itself took ages. It was quite intense and immersive. I can’t believe it took so many hours every day for nearly half a year, just to produce a video of 3 minutes. But this makes me so happy. Spending my days in imagination’s thrilling

Soul’s Sweet and Deep Music

I’ve finished the first part of my little project of an animation. I say “little” but I actually spent 4 months painting a single scene, and not just a few hours a day. This was fun. The music is La Celtie et l’Infini by Alan Stivell. Here is the animation:

A Bookmark

This is my first digital painting made with a fantastic program, Clip Studio Paint. This software is really amazing, I much prefer it to Photoshop or Corel Painter (which was great… years ago). On top of it, it’s very affordable. I mean really. This is a bookmark which I might order prints of, and sell a few on Etsy. But first, I think I will paint several bookmarks and perhaps sell them as a lot. Or not.  This mansion is called the Lodge of the Northern Woods. It has numerous  fireplaces, an excellent cook and a very charming host. It is not possible to book in advance. It’s the kind of place

A Magical Garden

Summertime is when I work the most, therefore it gets very tricky to find the time and energy to paint. It happens quite often I manage to paint just a few hours here and there on a painting only to give up after a few weeks because the vision is gone and I lost the connection with what I had in mind. This year, though, I’ve changed my approach. I’ve been working on some very small projects which take only a few hours to complete, so there is less frustration. I’m in the process of creating libraries of elements which I can incorporate in a composition. I’m planning to make several libraries,

Let the Journey Begin

I’ve been working for two months on this painting. It’s the beginning of a new adventure, a new journey. It was fun! Here are some close-ups (click to enlarge):   Summertime is here! With a few rainy days in between… Lucy on a rainy day:

Quiet on Lofoten

 Dear dreamers, Strange days to say the least, but I hope you’re all well and are taking many precautions. Like many, I’m now out of work. I am not confined, I am still free to go on a long walk every day, and naturally, with all this free time at home, not only are my girls delighted, but I can also devote most of my days to my art. Safe at home. I am applying glazes on some hand-built ceramics and I’m about to start a new painted paper diorama. But mostly, I paint on my graphic tablet and it’s a pure delight. I’ve started work on a project I had been

The Artists’ Home

This new painting has been dragging on for a few months. I forced myself to finish it, I had lost the connection. This happens especially at summertime when I’m alienated by my full time job. But in one month, things will be a bit quieter (but not entirely), I’m so looking forward to it, to going back to unrestricted creativity and to being simply me without having to deal with people’s unrealistic, crazy and unfair expectations.     Another painting of the Blue Hour, my favourite time of the day. I missed the Blue Hour, all these months from April to August. Now it is coming back and with it, a few
