August 21-27,2017

Wow, what a week! Eclipse, birthday, start of school for my kiddos. Tons of art stuff happening at the same time and tons of plans to make a reality.

A quick recap of this week:

Pastel ((See all on instagram under #greenrainartpastels ):

Made two paintings this week

First for the instagram marathon (since there are rules about a specific time when it should be posted , I haven’t put it there just yet). I am so happy with it!

my second one has a lot of red as well, however I overworked it quite a bit. I wonder what went wrong, but I was a bit distracted in the beginning and probably messed it up then

2. Make Art That Sells (my MATS adventures can be seen on instagram under the tag #greenrainartmats): Week 3 of Home Decor class was all about glass. It was probably the hardest for me to understand, and at the same time, I had the most fun creating pieces for assignment. I was done in record time receiving the assignment on Wednesday morning and being all done by Thursday night. I had the most fun making a glass bead mobile, I hope to have it in the flesh one day too.


for the rest of the week I made some patterns from my assignments

my prep exercises consisted of watercolor birdies

and black marker doodles of flowers

3. For #greenrainartfromlife I drew a bunny that belongs to my little girl.

I drew this bunny almost 2 years ago, so it was fun to compare the progress

4. I did two drawings for 52 weeks illustration challenge (all drawings for this challenge can be now seen under #greenrainart52w tag on instagram)

“Sadness” was the theme of last week and I tried something completely different, loose painting with watercolor, and a face (I don’t draw a lot of faces)

For this week “Deep” was the theme, and I went for Deep sea anglerfish, drawn in marker

Next week will be all about new MATS Home Dec assignment, a small commission drawing I am doing for a friend and hopefully some free painting in pastel and watercolor. I want to make more patterns too, I put up some on Spoonflower, and as soon as I get proofs I hope to start making them available for anyone interested.

Have a lovely end of August, everyone!
