Following up there are 2 sketches from Corniche in Ras Al Khaimah. I really like my morning tete-a-tete with watercolours!

What a nice start of the day! As Simon is commuting to his new job in Dubai and needs to get up really early I try to make it easier for him and and leave the bed on the same time (5am, grrr!) But that leaves me with some time to spare on the morning and today I have decided to use it wisely and efficiently and sit down to work with some watercolours and enjoy myself. This is what came out of my little 30 min session. I am pleased with it and now want to paint some more!!!

Here in the UAE we still have a t-shirt weather, but understandably I am craving snow and ice as Christmas time is almost here. I love those photographs by Marko Korosec, they make me think about winter in Polish countryside. You can find more here

There is a gap in my blog as you can see. 2 long months. I have spent those last 2 months traveling around I have been filling my head with new ideas and my travel sketchbook with colour and line. I will share those soon with.

 

Meanwhile, there is a new project I started working on. And here is what it is about:

Constellations

I have been tempted for a long while to create a collection about something that is close to my heart. Up until now I have been looking at women as isolated beings: focusing on their existence, their perception of themselves and their ambitions. But none among us is standing alone; we are all products of the way in which we were raised by the family around us. As women it is our mothers, sisters, grandmothers and daughters who influence our lives like the sun and moon influence the tides. Their relationships, both with us and with each other, inform our personalities to make up who we are. In Constellations, I explore these relationships between the women of a family, capturing them with symbolic patterns, colours and dimensions to produce a window on how a family sees itself.

This piece is based on relations between women in my family. Technique: Oil on canvas, size: 120 x 80 cm

So excited! Long awaited summer break has finally arrived. And with it 7 weeks of pleasant travels in Europe. As I have considerably more time on my hands I have returned to good old sketching practices and with them to drawings of my lovely friends. I have finished this one just this morning and am full of hope that it will be to Imran’s taste. On the end of the day – he is a keen gamer, isn’t he?
