Inspired by my photograph taken from a friend's house in Enrum here in Holland.
We are busy these days improving our house, so I have little time to paint. Fortunately, I have small paintings which I have not yet shared in this blog, such as this rose.
May you all have a wonderful art days ahead.

Last week, I saw a group of tulip flowers while walking around our neighborhood. I took some photographs and yesterday I started using them as reference materials for my sketching practice. This tulip sketch is only one of the sketches I made so far.

I always find it difficult to start again when for some time I don't use my brushes. I was away for about nine weeks and that for me is too long without my brushes. I missed them. So, to warm up my hand, I spontaneously drew and painted this rose using my brush and watercolor paints on watercolor paper. Have a nice art day.

I was on a 9-week trip to Asia. This is the reason why this blog was silent for a while. During the trip, I was busy; and even if I have time to sketch or visit my blog, I would rather spend it resting. I got easily tired due to warm weather. Another thing is that internet connection in the place where I stayed is slower than what I am used to, so that made me more not enthusiastic to use my tablet or smartphone in browsing the internet. But I enjoyed the trip. Below are photographs of some plants, etc.

This rose painting is my first painting for 2016.
It is in watercolor and the size is 6x6 inches. I used as reference my own
photographs which I took last year from our friend's garden. I changed the original
color of the rose which is soft pink to this blue-violet color.

|Sunrise in Oil, 24x30 cm, on canvas|
I finished this painting last November. It is one of the two oil paintings I painted as a practice in using oil paints. I like using oil paints but I could not take the smell of the mediums that we used during the practice. I might try next time the water mixible oil paints.
