How are you all doing out there? Hope you had/are having a nice Christmas holiday 🎄 I think normally I would be on a beach somewhere, or on top of a mountain skiing, or organising big dinners with friends.. but we all know that this winter (and year) is a little different.
How do you spend your days off in these crazy times? Let's share some tips to brighten up our everyday lives when the world is upside down.
Here are some of mine:
Let me know yours!
I just started doing painting myself! I first tried a Bob Ross follow along and it turned out not too bad. The only thing is oil painting is a pain in the clean up department. So I picked up some acrylics to try out. It's a very different way of painting compared to oils bit easier to clean up and no chemical smells to worry about. There are loads of tutorial videos on YouTube too of course. One trip i got on there was to use scrap MDF board to paint on. It's way cheaper than canvases especially if you know someone that has done a little upgrade to a room in a house. The scraps left over can be cut into small canvas sizes. Here are my most recent paintings on said MDF scrap.
They are beautiful! That's a great tip with the MDF boards as canvases seem quite expensive. Will check if someone is renovating 🔨 😀
Cooking, board games, learn a new language and keep dreaming about sunnier days!! ☀️
I am constantly dreaming about sunnier days - or even snow! Would be so fun to go out skiing or ice skating if it gets colder 🤞
