A few holiday sketches… And my happy new year wishes!

Hey, I know that’s a bit late to share some Christmas tree sketches but my mom likes to keep it up to the New Year eve to spin things out so… 😉 maybe that’s not so late after all?! 😅

The fir is too big and too heavy by now to go inside the house so we decorated it in the courtyard.
Isn’t it lovely? 😃 holiday3


I really want to wish you the best for 2017. 💚💛💜

More peace for the heart and in the world, more carefreeness, more love and happy little moments to create, to share and to enjoy… ☺️
and a lot of art and creative spirit in your life, of course!! 🎉😍


I paint a lot on my landscape small sketchbook, these days, using it vertically! 😛



As the weather was rather cold, I tried to make some cosy comfy sketches at home.
I realized lamps are amazing subjects to paint when the daylight is gone! 😉

There is at least a small holiday touch in each of my sketches… 😊




To the left, that’s the Christmas market of Antwerp, a wonderful Belgian city. 😊

To the right, I am not sure it shows (I am so used to use the white of the paper for the light), but there was an incredible thick frost lasting for a few days so I painted again the Christmas tree with its frost looking like snow, when the night was starting to fall.
I painted a lot wet in wet on this one. 😉


And, at last, here are a few chocolates, just for you!! 😘



I hope you have been enjoying a really pleasant start for the new year. ☺️

Happy creating! 😝
