Everyday Life, Painting, by Sirkka Jalava


In the autumn there are many courses starting again. I have taken a course where we`ll  paint with acrylic colours and the theme is this castle in the autumn, later in the spring we`ll paint people. With the participiants in the course we visited the castle, took many photos, ate our food we had with us, sat in the park and looked around and took impressions of the castle.


Then next time we gathered together we looked at the photos and then slowly began to sketch our pictures. I have choosed this photo to begin with and have sketched a little. I will work on this further and perhaps take a bigger size of canvas to paint it.This is 30 x 40 cm acrylic paper.
This is something what belongs to my daily life now, to sketch and paint. I have got a new sketchbook too to sketch in.

  3. This is beautiful. The winding path is intriguing. I want to see what is around the corner. I love it when paintings drawn me into them.
