Weekly painting - Who gets the ball?

Inspired by several artists/illustrators blogs a la 1-painting-a-day, in my latest newsletter (download here), I have sat the goal of one painting a week. Not at least to keep myself on track - despite all obstacles meaning lack of time - to keep drawing and painting every week of the year.
This week has been hectic, but I managed to make this small picture: "Who gets the ball?" A illustrative style with ink and watercolors.

Tuxedo cat

"Tuxedo cat" is a coloristic painting with emphasis on expression and coloring.

I had a lot of fun painting in this looser style with watercolor, and wanted to paint an acrylic too. The actual method and final look are very different - the fun is equal :)

Painted on acrylic board. 30x40 cm.

Snake escape I + II

Snake Escape I and II, are mixed media abstract paintings I just finished.
The starting point for this series is just the word "snake", I then create an abstract painting from that.

The medias used are Staedtler pencil, WinsorNewton and Lukas watercolors, FaberCastell pitt pens and Caran d'ache neocolor I.

In my onlinegalleries I have a gallery called "Lively ladies, where you among others can meet the Badut lady(impossible to translate I'm sorry). I have just painted her on running wheels. Earlier painting on ball.
A lively, whimsical and proud captivating person, who likes to act.
