Little paintings...


Een paar kleine schilderijtjes die ik nog wilde laten zien op mijn blog.
De salamander heb ik vorig jaar geschilderd als cadeautje voor iemand die van salamanders houdt.
En het bolletje wol herken je vast wel!

Two older little paintings that I wanted to show on my blog.
I painted the salamander last year as a present for someone who loves salamanders.
And surely you recognize the little ball of wool!

The salamander as a painting is great. Though I am not sure I would want to meet this little character in real life perhaps. Your little ball of wall is a favourite of mine. It is just so warm and fluffy. Exactly how a little ball of wool feels. ;-)

Judy said...

Thank you Laura. No, not my favourite animal too! :) That's probably why I did not show him earlier.

Celia Blanco said...

I saw one last night,I think they are kind of cute! I love your signature ball of wool too.

Voske said...

Ik vind je salamander weer zo goed gelukt. Mooie kleuren. Met je bolletje wol zou ik al direct een zacht knuffeltje willen haken. Ik hou gewoon van je stijl van aquarelleren. Kon ik dat ook maar..zucht!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

happy weekend to you!

Danielle v/d Horst said...

Lief en fijntjes gemaakt lieve groetjes Danielle

Sandra Busby said...

perfect little paintings Judy! And yes, I'd recognise that ball of wool anywhere, lol!

Blaga said...

You made me go to Wikipedia, as I knew only the black and yellow coloured salamanders. This little guy is very cute and I like how you achieved the jelly-like look of the skin. And of course, the ball of wool... I've always liked the softer and looser wool version (I think the original version is cotton :)

Judy said...

Celia, thank you, I'm not sure I would like to meet one in real life!

Voske, dankjewel! Ik ben ook dol op mijn bolletje wol, hij werd al schilderend vanzelf zo pluizig. :)

Thanks Cynthia! Happy weekend to you!

Dankjewel Danielle, groetjes!

Thanks Sandra, these little paintings deserved a blogpost, I thought. :)

Thanks Blaga, the model came from the internet, I'm not sure I would like to meet him in real life. :) The ball of wool became fluffy on its own while I painted it. :)

Debbie Nolan said...

Judy - you made this salamander look absolutely adorable. He looks like such a friendly fella. Hope you have a great week-end. Thanks for sharing.

Judy said...

Thank you Debbie, have a great weekend!

It happens the day that looking at our work we consider the past and the future. The wire-ball ,delicious symbol that speaks of you all over the world and the salamander, another powerful symbol of your tenacity and your pursuit of excellence. Little things, exquisite watercolors, and great symbols of your personality, dear friend Judy!

Judy said...

Thank you so much for your kind words, my friend Rita!

This salamander is painted beautifully, Judy (as always!!)
and I always love your ball of wool..so soft!!

Studio at the Farm said...

They are both such beautiful little paintings, Judy! I love them both. It is good to see you have kept your integrity of style through the past few years - wonderful work!!!

Judy said...

Thank you Hilda, thank you Kathryn!

Jerry said...

I love of course the little 'trademark' ball of wool - do you make many things from wool? And the little Salamander is so very charming too!

Simonne's fantasiestudio said...

Het zijn twee toffe werken hoor.
De schaduwen zitten zo mooi.
groetjes, Simonne

Judy said...

Thank you Jerry! No I don't make things from wool anymore, I only paint them now. :)

Dankjewel Simonne!

Hanneke said...

Weer twee mooie aquarellen Judy.
Groetjes!

Susan said...

The little salamander really grabs me! I have geckos in my garden that look just like this. They keep me company when I garden - from a distance of course!

Irina Rekhviashvili said...

I enlarged the ball of wool picture, trying to solve the mystery of its "100% wooliness". With no success.
Bravo, master.

Judy said...

Hanneke, dankjewel!

Thank you Susan, I'm glad they keep their distance. :)

Thank you Irina! The wooliness was a 'happy accident', trying to soften edges. I also think the quality of the paper is important, this is Canson Fontenay, 100% cotton. I love this paper because it can take playing around with a lot of water.

Mercedes Ares said...

Hola Judy: Preciosa pintura y un tema muy original, me agrada el bello movimiento y color de la salamandra. Saludos!!!

Dana said...

Wow, the salamander is great! A perfect swirl! :)

Pat said...

They are both gorgeous!

Judy said...

Thank you Mercedes, Dana and Pat!
