And now something completely different

Quilting can be so boring sometimes. I guess I'll continue my work on the Bauhaus quilt while watching TV. -- In the meantime, my favourite painting technique -- watercolour -- keeps me from going to bed. I'm a night painter. My surprised remark "oups! Four in the morning!" wasn't heard by anyone. Fortunately.




What got me into this painting mood to finish no II and paint the complete no III? It was the wonderful narrative language of Adalbert Stifter in his short novel "Bergkristall". Listening to audio books like this and painting without the breaks the day brings, gets me into a trance that replaces sleep.
The result was this series of 3 submarine scenes. Here they are. And I'm working on no 4, but not more shall be said.

Oh, these are fun. I love the colour choices you made and the movement in those paintings is wonderful. My favourite is the first one with the phantasy-style fishes and the diamont shapes.
I also love stitching or painting at night, when all is quiet around me.

These are wonderful. I love the colours and movement you have created. My favourite is the last one, it looks like a colourful seabird and floating eggs...quite magical.

so, do you sleep late in the morning/day after painting all night? I don't know how you do it! The watercolors are wonderful: so dreamlike and so very colorful. I love turtles too.
