Es ist von grundlegender Bedeutung, 
jedes Jahr mehr zu lernen als im Jahr davor.

- Peter Ustinov


May the new year bring new happiness, new goals, 
new achievements and a lot of new inspirations on your life. 
Wishing you a year fully loaded with happiness.

Sincerely yours,


Isabella 


Ich habe die Challenge mit den 100 #little gems nicht geschafft und dennoch bin ich sehr zufrieden, mit diesem Projekt, 25 sind immerhin ein Viertel. Solch kleine Formate sind wahrlich nicht meine Komfortzone, genauer gesagt habe ich eigentlich Miniaturen nie besonders gemocht, doch wie so oft, habe ich durch die Teilnahme viel gelernt und freue mich auf die kommenden Challenges in 2019. Von Herzen das Allerbeste Euch allen und ein glückliches 2019!!


I did not manage the challenge with the 100 #little gems and yet I'm very happy with this project, 25 are at least a quarter. Such small formats are not really my comfort zone, more specifically, I've never really liked miniatures, but as so often, I've learned a lot from attending and am looking forward to the upcoming challenges in 2019. The very best of you all and a happy one 2019 !!

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.

Only an experiment with wet-on-wet technique, two colors and little time during the holiday preparations. But there is something in this I like and hope you like it too.

Ich wünsche Euch von Herzen ein Frohes Weihnachtsfest mit unvergesslich schönen, harmonischen und friedvollen Augenblicken und der Muße ebendiese genießen zu können. 

I wrote a letter to Santa and told him 
to bring you everything you wanted for Christmas, 
so hopefully he will answer and make all your dreams come true.
The glory and beauty of this wonderful season 
is something we all can share together. 
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. 

Cordially yours,

Isabella

ICELANDIC STUDIES 1

PAPER: VANGEROU'S SKETCH BLOCK 200g/m² ROUGH

Quick sketch/study for a larger painting - Lake Thingvellir, Iceland. I’ve visited this magical place years ago during November with amazing cold weather, a very clear sky and so soft and romantic sundowns, it was unbelievable beautiful. Now I I’ll start with some paintings from my memories/own photos.

Sometimes a quick sketch is so perfect, done without any pressure on your shoulders, just following the own inspiration and the feeling for the place you'd like to paint. Do you know what I mean? Hopefully that the large version comes out so fresh and loose like the sketch. Let's cross the brushes for it!!
