Next project: Finishing my painting of a Chevrolet 1953
I never went to Cuba, but since internet I can imagine how that country looks like. Especially I love the pictures with the old Cuban taxi.s. How in the world were they able to collect all these beautifull old memories of cars. But I love them for the way they still caring for these cars.
Otherwise all those cars have.nt been excisting anymore. This painting of a Chevrolet of 1953 I started half a year ago. I did not paint the last 6 months, but now, after my surgery, I started again and yes, I still love it. Backgrounds are not my piece of cake, but I have to praxis over and over again to also enjoy painting backgrounds. There is still so much to learn. But these lessons I like, it only costs time.
What a lovely drawings of Alice in Wonderland made by the twins Janet and Anne Grahame Johnston. Always searching in secondhand bookstores for books with nursery rhymes and fairytales. The drawings brings back memories to my childhood and gives me a lot of inspiration to create. Just looking at the drawings gives me fun.
Today I found my old Nursery Rhymes book back after I had moved in with my friend.
It.s a 42 year old book I bought in a secondhand bookstore. Illustrations by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone. The twin sisters Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone were born June 1, 1928. Janet died in 1979 and Anne died in 1998.
