Last week I felt like painting a picture. I was still using a wintery white and snowy artwork as my laptop and iPhone wallpaper and longed for something more colourful and spring. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to create a new fairy tale painting with my crochet animals starring gracefully in it.
But oh my, it didn’t work out all that well. I guess my idea was not solid enough and I rushed into the illustration. Now, when it is finished, the only part I consider worth looking at is Finse with his umbrella and even that isn’t painted very well. As for the rest of the illustration, the colours are wrong, the background is too distracting and Floro looks utterly ridiculous.
The idea was to paint Finse and Floro in a stormy, between winter and spring landscape, struggling with the wind. Well, Finse does not seem to be struggling does he now? He seems more surprised his umbrella got flapped over for some unclear reason.
Anyhow, the painting is not at all ‘desktop’ worthy and I tossed it somewhere in a corner. What a pity, I even postponed my polecat aka ferret pattern for that silly painting.
Now let’s get on with it!

Well, I think Finse is cute with his startled expression!. And artwork is never a waste – now since you know what you don’t love, it will allow your brain to think of changes that you will love?!!? maybe? 😀
Yes :), very true!
I LOVE this painting! If this is a ‘fail’ then I’d love to fail at my drawing every day! 😛
Thank you Sarah Anne. I guess the painting just did not meet up with my expectations, how I wanted it to turn out. I do like this bit too, but the rest….
You’re always your worst critic 😛
