Anna artwork at age 12

I found a watercolor painting that I did at the age of 12. I remember I was happy that the swan actually looked like a swan. I wasn't happy over the background though. I can't believe I remember that so many years later. This was 1982 and today it's 2018. Anna

The ladder of life – livets stege

Is life like this? Kan vi se livet som en stege? Some climbing up to the top, some stays halfway and som stays on the ground. Några klättrar hela vägen upp, några stannar på halva vägen och andra står kvar på marken. Watercolors on cardboard, reuse art. Akvarell på kartong. Anna

Flower unknown name

I was supposed to make a small tulip painting, but I don't think it looks like a tulip so this is an unknown flower with no name. I'm not great in painting things out of memory. I just remembered the red color and the green leaves. I have to practice more, I realise that. Anna

Red houses

The same technique as Winter wonderland. My idea was to let the white fields be that white stuff that's falling in winter time. I'm not sure it is obvious in this painting though. Anna

I'm not satisfied with the photo of the painting, there's more layers and color fields in the painting than the photo shows. But if you compare with the first step, then you clearly can see a… Continue reading Ongoing painting finished 🙂
