Something New. Something Old Vähän uutta ja vähän vanhaa

I like drawing with dry pastels and painting with watercolors.
This first one portrait is a drawing again of my son, after a photo . It is always a joy to try to do a portrait of one of  the family members.

These two aquarelles are portraits of Bogdan, an amazing pianist and composer. These photos are surely a couple of years old, so he perhaps looks more adult now.

And this chaming gentleman is 91 years old  nowadays and still going strong. He has given fine times with his music for me and millions of others. He has always been (his photos) an inspirering model when ever I had the will to draw or paint. And he still is. His name is Charles Aznavour if anyone do not recognize him.

He is much more handsome "in the nature" than in this of my painting,
And an aquarelle of a house. I painted , sketched this our house in 1991, but fineshed it now. It is much to do with the perspective and with all decorations.

This painting in aquarelle is from the kitchen in 1999. It is old but I like it as it is.
I wish you all a nice weekend  and happy PPF! Much joy with all kinds of creativity!

Voimat eivät tahdo riittää kahden kieliseen tekstiin, saati sitten kolmen, kuten olisi oikeastaan tarve. Mutta minusta tuntuu, että kaikki osaavat sen verran englantia nykyaikana, että saavat selvän, mitä tarkoitan ja kuvathan saavat puhua puolestaan, jos pystyvät. Toivottavasti sentään. Kaikille lukijoille mukavaa viikonloppua, ainakin nyt aurinko paistelee ja on ihan hyvä ulkoiluilmakin siis.

Portraits and garden Muotokuvia ja puutarhaa

 I continue doing my portraits,  this time first a portait with dry pastels then the same model in watercolors.


This piece is a nostalgic picture in dry pastels too.
We dont forget, that it is summer and at least I am spending  much time outdoors, looking, enjoying, working.

I love a little loose style in the garden.

Blogger is not cooperating with me to day, I lost some text. Perhaps it reaches for to day. Have a nice week, enjoy the summer! Happy PPF!

Eikä sitten paljon muuta kuin hyvää viikonloppua kaikille!

Some portraits Joitakin muotokuvia

Now we are happy when we have the summer, the sun is shining, the flowers too. And we have light, it is still long time to the winter darkness.
I have done Bogdan with pencil this time.
He had to move  abroad out from his own land for getting acceptance  for his music and his talent. He got acceptance in Norway and now he is famous in the whole world. He really took his life in his own hands and got success. Therefore I appreciate him very much. And his talent.

I like this portrait, not only because of that the model was my son here and for the drawing below, but also because of it looks rather naturally out,
Here the same model with pencil, before I did the aquarelle painting.

A Sketch in Acrylic Akryyliluonnos

Acrylic, sketch. (Aznavour) It is too warm to paint.  Here a sketch of my favorite model, it is quickly done.
