I would not normally do this…

I am enjoying a long weekend, north of the Arctic Circle. The Photo below was taken 20 kilometres north of Kiruna, Sweden. The temperature was -32 degrees! I would not normally post holiday snaps on this blog but the experience was just so magical. You could say that the Sun and it’s solar storms were painting the night sky here on earth, a masterpiece.

inspiration Joseph Zbukvic Watercolour Watercolouring

Joseph Zbukvic, watercolour master

I have a DVD, “Rural France in Watercolour” by  Joseph Zbukvic which I am enjoying immensely. I visited his homepage last night and found so many inspirational watercolours. Make sure you check out the gallery page and visit the first gallery, Joseph’s work is there plus other great artists. I haven’t trawled the other galleries yet but I will over the next coming week. I love surfing, discovery at every mouse click!

Audrey Kawasaki
Audrey Kawasaki’s work is both Manga and Art Nouveau inspired, her technical skills are top-class. I find the work both erotic and innocent, the fact that a lot of the paintings are directly on wood add a lot of warmth to the compositions.

Audrey updates her online journal frequently with new work, pieces in progress, information about shows and more. Click here to visit Aud’s Journal
