Playing with acrylics, bathroom stuff, my weird face, Aix en Provence

Continuing my experiments and playing with acrylics. It's really fun, and freeing.


I like how this one turned!
This other one, with the horses, I'm not so sure about it. Maybe I'll go back to it later, I don't know.


I missed doing real drawings in the spirit of Every Day Matters, so I sorted out all my drawings on Flickr and made an EDM album, and then I went back to the challenge list to tackle some more challenges!


So I spent some quality time in my bathroom!
And then I drew my face, just because.


I had my ears redone twice but the right one still doesn't want to play nice. I kept my hair long for a long time because of it.

Last week I was near Aix en Provence with my daughter, to spend some times with my best friend and her family. We had a great time. I can't resist showing you one photo, Aix is such a beautiful and pleasant city!


Manon and my best friend, in Aix.


Oh, this was a big post! Hope everyone is enjoying this summer as I am!

I love the first acrylic you posted - have fun carrying on experimenting! - and your bathroom sketches and portrait are great too - great to see a variety of methods/styles together here!

I love that first painting, with all the structures and the use of paper too. Wonderful.

Mmm, maybe it's not paper after all, I just assumed it, but looking more closely, you did the lettering yourself, that's even cooler ;-)

I love the one with the horses, too! All your experiments are well done and very interesting to see. I really like your self-portrait. I like how much you were able to convey with such a few lines and no shading. nancy

I've never tried acrylic myself... and I admire your courage to do so, and love the abstract too! Nice sketches and awesome self portrait, I've been wanting to do that for ages... I think I might do one....soon ^^
