At the Beach: Waikouaiti

We had a great afternoon walking at the beautiful Waikouaiti Beach.
I was a great energy boost for the three of us after a very busy week.
Don't you love the sand landscapes?

The Origin Of The Images



This illustration came from my inner world. I just saw it on my mind and painted it.

Most of what I paint and the colors I use come to me like that, as weird as it may sound, an less I'm sketching something from the outer world. They appear in my mind's screen when I'm falling asleep, waking up or making love. 

It's not always easy to put them on paper, many times it doesn't work and the image I paint doesn't look anything like the one I saw. It would be great to be able to take a photo of my "visual thoughts" to use as reference after the image is gone!!!

First I make a pencil sketch, when I'm happy with it I transfer the image to the watercolor paper. 
Then I color it with watercolors, when it is completely dry I add the white ink details.

Pebbles I Painted Today

I haven't been to productive this week but today I painted these pebbles using a very fine round brush and Daler-Rowney FW Artists' Acrylic Ink.

My Studio Today

It's been a while since I took photos of my studio or "my room" as we call it here at home.
Somethings have changed, I've rearranged it many times in four years. This is how it looks today.
I'm still waiting to get nice new curtains and replace the plastic drawers for wooden ones but I love it.     It is my happy place and my refuge.


 Meditation table, my plants, painting table, desk mainly for computer work, printer trunk.

 Reading and stitching corner, some times snoozing corner ;)

 Exit corner, you can see my bag collection some of them made by me.
