Another one finished. The butterfly came to life and its looking at the one petal that got detached from the flower.  It took me a few hours to paint the butterfly, going over and over with a small brush until I got the right colors.  I only used 2 colours : cobalt blue and white.  The painting is done on 30x40 cm board with oil colors.  I felt inspired and used the photo reference from @jdu2003 . . . .  #mothernature #naturelove  #naturewalk #ig_naturelovers  #earthgallery #instaview … Ture Love, Another One, Walking In Nature, Photo Reference, 2 Colours, Take My, Cobalt Blue, Felt, Blue And White

The flower is done. I've worked a lot on it and tested different shadow intensities and had to work slow to not ruin the background. I also painted it freehand, without a previous sketch on the panel so that added an extra level of difficulty. But at the end on the day, I really like the result.  Do you like the flower as it is or have some suggestions of change? . . . . #nature_perfection #mothernature #naturelove  #landscapelover #naturewalk #ig_naturelovers #landscape_hunter … Ture Love, Walking In Nature, Ruin, Sketch, Earth, Change, Landscape, Gallery, Flowers

Last days I worked with a rough style, with palette knives, but today I was in a mood for smooth and fine transitions so I picked up a photo with a butterfly sitting on a flower. Only got to do the background. It takes quite a bit of work to blend everything. But the hard part is yet to come.  I also limited my pallette to only 2 colours: cobalt blue and white. . . . . #nature_perfection #mothernature #naturelove  #landscapelover #naturewalk #ig_naturelovers #landscape_hunter  #earthgallery… Hard Part, Ture Love, Yet To Come, Walking In Nature, 2 Colours, Cobalt Blue, Knives, Palette, Blue And White

Another one finished. I've done it only with palette knives without using any brushes. So it looks a bit harsh, but I like the final result, especially the contrast.  It's done on 30x40 cm board with oil colors.

I've been doing some progress today. I've scraped the background colour first, then added with the palette knife the foreground leaves.  I'll have to finish them, let it dry, and then add the details on top. . . . . #nature_perfection #mothernature #naturelove  #naturewalk #ig_naturelovers #landscape_hunter  #earthgallery #instaview  #artforthehome #carveouttimeforart  #womenartists #oilpaintings #artinspiration #brightcolors  #paintingart #kunstwerk #housedecor #naturepainting  #paintdaily… Background Colour, Ture Love, Nature Paintings, Walking In Nature, Palette Knife, Colorful Backgrounds, Earth, Leaves, Ads

Work in progress. As I loved so much painting the tree from yesterday, I thought I would keep the palette knives and the colours for another artwork.  This is the background that I managed to do before going out on a bike trip for around 30 km into the forests around Eindhoven. Just got home.  Can you guess what will be in the foreground?  I will add it on top of this layer. . . . . . #nature_perfection #mothernature #naturelove  #landscapelover #naturewalk #ig_naturelovers… Ture Love, Eindhoven, Walking In Nature, Forests, Knives, Palette, Bike, Colours, Landscape

I always saw trees as one of the most difficult subjects to paint. They have so many leaves and branches that you can't paint them individually. However, you can recreate the illusion with light, shadow and brush strokes. Unfortunately, whenever I added a tree in a painting it was frustrating, having to paint and repaint it.  Surprisingly, this time was different. I decided to face my "fear" of trees and paint one as my main subject. I was expecting to have to erase and redo it a few times… I Decided, Brush Strokes, Branches, Illusions, Country Roads, Trees, Leaves, Face, Painting

It's done! This one reminds me of the misty hills that I would often see in the spring while going to school by bike. I was always leaving home a little early so I could stare for a few minutes at the nature around me.  Unfortunately I don't have many photos with the childhood landscapes, but when I saw the photo of @melvinmapa it instantly took me back to those times and I just couldn't resist making my own version.

I've been working on this one and I really enjoy using green nuances. I think  I'll stick with green for a while.

Work in progress. Today I didn't have a lot of time and only managed to put the first rough layer and the general feeling of the painting - a misty warm green.  Then, for the first time in 3 months, I went out and enjoyed some special beers with our friends at @vanmollcraftbeer. It was such a nice feeling to be able to go out, to see people on the streets chatting and having a good time. It feels like the normal is coming back  seeing the city joyful again. . . . . . . #womenartists… Joyful, 3 Months, The One, Feels, Layers, Warm, Nice, Friends, Green

I finished this bird's eye view a few days ago and now it's dry.  I wanted to exercise more the illusion of detail and loose brushstrokes. I am pretty happy with the result.  Does it remind you of a certain place you visited?  I used a reference photo by @jrrs_photography that I loved at first sight. Only did some minor changes.  I'm also curious if you would like to see a short video of my painting process.  The painting is 30x40 cm and it's done in oil on panel. . . . . . . #natura… Painting Process, Birds Eye View, Love At First Sight, Brush Strokes, Illusions, Golf Courses, It Is Finished, Exercise, Oil

Behind the scenes - I want to show and tell you about what happens before I start painting.  I bought a huge plywood from @praxis_bouwmarkt and they were kind enough to cut it for me in 30x40 cm panels. At home, I started coating them with primer then sanding and reapplying a new coat - 3 layers in total to get them to a perfect white and  a smooth texture - ready for paint. It takes a few hours to prepare them, but it has a lot of advantages.  Until recently I was only painting with oil… Show And Tell, Plywood, Layers, Told You So, Smooth, Oil, Texture, Shit Happens, Colors

This is dry and scanned to see all the colors. I'm pretty happy with the sky but to be honest I don't like how the water turned out. I've put so many layers and repainted a few times, but it still doesn't feel right to me. Oh well, I'll leave it as it is for now and maybe I'll redo it completely in a few weeks.  But right now I'm busy preparing for a big challenge for June. More details coming soon. . . . . . . #landschaft #landscape_lover #landscapehunter #nature_seekers #landscapelover… Big Challenge, All The Colors, Layers, June, Sky, Times, Landscape, Pretty, Happy

I felt so inspired when I saw the photo of @davidzizka. It looks exactly like the hills with the mountains in the background that I have back in my hometown. It got me back to the springs I had there when the trees started to bloom, everything was so green and I would wander around for hours. I just had to paint this!  While painting it, so many nice memories came back to me and I feel like I added a part of them on the panel with every brush stroke. . . 30x40 cm, oil on panel… Nice Memories, Brush Strokes, Wander, Bloom, Trees, Felt, Mountains, Inspired, Painting

Does this make you think at a place you visited?  It is still a work in progress, but I'm curious if your mind goes to some place that you know.  I just started it today, after cleaning my really messy palette.

And the tree blossomed too in white. I also added a few details here and there and I can call it done.  Unfortunately my phone camera did a lot of compensation and there is a lot of loss in details, but in a few days it will be dry and I'll scan it to show you how it truly looks.
