Slowly softly...



Hallo allemaal, zijn jullie er nog? Ik hoop dat jullie een fijne zomer hebben gehad.
Langzaamaan ben ik weer aan het schilderen. Niet schilderen en niet bloggen voelde als spijbelen in het begin, wat voor mij aantoonde dat ik duidelijk aan een pauze toe was! :) Op dit moment heb ik twee bloemenschilderijen om te laten zien. Bij beide heb ik geprobeerd hard en zacht te combineren.

Hi everyone, are you still there? I hope you had a wonderful summer. 
I  am slowly painting again. Not painting and not blogging felt like skipping school in the beginning, which proved to me I obviously needed a break! :) For now I have two flower paintings  to show you. In both I tried to combine hard and soft.




Voor de rozen heb ik een oude referentiefoto gebruikt.
Dit schilderij is te koop in mijn Etsy winkeltje.

For the roses I used an old reference photo. 
This painting is available in my Etsy shop.

Welcome back Judy. What lovely paintings you've treated us to. I like your study on hard and soft edges. Blogging can drain the batteries sometimes so I understand the necessary break. Take care. xx

I'm glad you are back Judy! I hope you had a beautiful period of holidays. These new paintings are both wonderful, lovely and delicate colors. Have a good Sunday! Ciao.

Simonne's fantasiestudio said...

Je combinatie van hard en zacht is je goed gelukt, ik hou nog het meest van die gele bloemen, daar komt het contrast heel goed tot zijn recht vind ik, maar dat is ieder zijn smaak of gevoel....
groetjes,
Simonne

ashok said...

wonderful to see u back and painting! cheers!

Studio at the Farm said...

Judy, I'm glad you're back! I think i need a break now. :)

Blaga said...

I'm very glad to see you back, Judy! I see you're experimenting with a more loose and abstract style and I like it a lot. The new mohair yarn ball looks very soft and cuddly too.
I know what you mean about feeling guilty when not painting or blogging... I myself try to ignore these feelings, and they eventually go away. One needs a life away from the computer too ;)

L.W.Roth, said...

You did a great job. You have such a lovely light touch to your watercolors. Very beautiful. Very uplifting.

Judy said...

Thank you Tito! Ciao!

Dankje Simonne, ja die roze rozen zijn nogal zoetig uitgevallen.

Thank you Ashok! You had a wonderful post to read!

Thank you Kathryn, why don't you?

Hi Blaga, I'm glad you like my experiments and my ball of yarn! I found a blog button once, Blogging without Obligation, I'll try to find it again. I'm not the only one to feel the way I did obviously!

Thank you Linda!

Sandra said...

Gorgeous! My favorite is the bottom one - the colours are so pretty :0)

DEKAKADO said...

Gelukkig, je bent er weer.
Mooie, verschillende dingen heb je gemaakt. Blog met mate, dan blijft het lollig. :-)voor jezelf.(eigen ervaring)hi hi. Groetjes, Marleen.

Judy said...

Thank you Sandra! I love that candy pink too, but it's not to everyone's taste.

Hoi Marleen! Met mate inderdaad moet het goed gaan. Groetjes!

John (JWJarts) said...

Gorgeously loose paintings as always. I like the last one best too. ;-)

Irina Rekhviashvili said...

Good to see that you are back. I hope your break-time was useful and relaxing.
Wonderful flowers!

Rosa Viñas said...

Hola Judy, bienvenida. Las dos combinaciones te han quedado geniales.

Un abrazo

Judy said...

Thank you John!

Thank you Irina!

Muchas gracias, Rosa!

AtelierBrigitte said...

Ja, wat fijn dat je weer lekker aan de slag bent gegaan! En dan ook met zulke leuke werken meteen.

Een maandje 'vrij' heeft je hopelijk goed gedaan -en je weet: bloggen MOET niet ;)

JANE MINTER said...

Judy said...

Dankje Brigitte! Ja ik weet het, en een tijdje vrijaf is heel heilzaam!

Thank you Jane!
