I 'm so happy this season, because one of my best friends is going to be mom for her third time in a few days... So, as this period I am on holidays, far away from professional obligations and I have a lot of free time, I decided to make a special handmade gift for her baby boy! After some hours of thinking, I decided to create two little paintings which will decorate perfectly the wall above his crib.
As he will be born in the end of the August, I chose to use two colours which reminds the Greek Summer! I painted the background with my favourite colour, which is nothing else but turquoise, the colour of the pure sea water. For the details I chose some shades of orange... Those who takes the sky the sunset hour!
The paintings' theme is the forest and the Indians... One of little boys' favourite theme! I designed the head of a little deer, an Indian tepee, some feathers and some arrows on balsa wood. Then I cut them and glued them on the canvas in order to create a kind of 3D result. The final step was to write on them some messages for their little owner, with my black markers.
The materials I used for this project was: two canvas frames of 20x20cm, a piece of balsa wood, acrylic colours and my favourite markers.
