Kitchen, Sirkka Jalava

My first sketch of the theme "kitchen". I think to go from a overall picture to the details, or something like that. Ok, here there is or are the heart(s) in a kitchen, oven(s).  On the right side is the electical oven and on the left side oven with woodheating, above them the ventilation crop. Made this in acrylic colours.

  1. Hi Sirkka. I love your kitchen. It's laid out just right. I don't know how to do this type of painting but I will learn. Great job!

  2. I feel the warmth from the wood burning stove, and wonder about the good smells as to what's cooking or baking there? Your painting makes it look so welcoming. I like these soft colors, and shadings.

    1. Lisa, here on 60 - 70 `s the people used to take all the stoves away and the central heating took over. But now again most people when they build a new house they want to have wood heating stoves too (and the central heating of course).You are wellcome! Thanks.
