Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Playing in my recycled cardboard sketchbook with Gouache and watercolor... not my usual subjects but I need to experiment and play (creating keeps me sane ;) ). I think I want (need?) more Gouache... . Here I use Horadam gouache titanium white and Calligraphy gouache jet black (both @schmincke_official )... the only ones I own... and the subtle hints of color were leftover Horadam water color on my palette ğŸ’ž . #horadam #gouache #watercolor #vwbus #chair #flowers #painting #experiment #sketchbook #sketchdaily #upcycling #handmadebook #schminckekünstlerfarben #aquarell #car #blackandwhite #artelements #art__elements #saraccinobycf #saraccino #leipzigram #leipzigart #schminckehoradam

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Every time I get new colors, it will take a while until I really know them, how they behave, move on the paper, work with other colors/pigments. Painting little pears is a cute and fun way to do so!

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - A new tiny wee sketch book I made with coptic binding. On the outside of the covers is plant-dyed paper and inside monoprints made with a gelli plate. The pages are brown cardboard I got from some packaging. Of course not the best paper for paint but I love to play with different materials. I tested how different kind if pens worked with the cardboard. . @gelliarts #bookbinding #copticbinding #copticstitch #book #bookart #upcycling #recycling #cardboard #ecodye #plants #pen #drawing #colorswatches #swatching #artelements #art__elements #saraccinobycf #saraccino #sketchbook #artjournal #Leipzig #leipzigram #lieblingsleipzig

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - A fast late night sketch in my tiny wee water color book. I am playing with different ideas and techniques.

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Finally I can show you what I created for this month's theme challenge at @art__elements - theme was simply “white“. . I mostly tried to get more excercise in sketching and water colour... also learn more the new Schmincke Horadam paints I got. Could be that I have a lot of them since I had a nice offer for them... also the company still had some paints that Schmincke is not producing anymore but I simply love. For example one of my favorite yellows ever! Gummigut modern (210). . #artelements #art__elements #aewhite #aethemechallenge #monochrome #painting #watercolorpainting #schmincke_official @schmincke_official #schminckehoradam #watercolorbird #white #winter #fluffy #bird #birdsindecember #watercolor #excercise #sketchbook #saraccinobycf #saraccino #Leipzig #leipzigram #lieblingsleipzig

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - At my in-laws... they had a big cookie baking session and I stole a little bit of time to work on this month's theme challenge at @art__elements 🐦🐦🐦 . Also playing with one of my new paints from @schmincke_official - Horadam 782 - neutral tint. Monochromatic sketches are one of my favorite ways to get used to a new paint. . #sneakpeak #aethemechallenge #aewhite #schminckehoradam #watercolorpainting #bird #monochrome #painting #sketchbook #white #watercolorbird #excercise #journaling #artelements #art__elements #saraccinobycf #saraccino #aquarelle #leipzig #leipzigram #lieblingsleipzig

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I should probably make more sketches simply to train shapes and proportions... but where is the fun in that? Water colors are what I live! ;) . But I am seeing a slow progress and learn from the errors. . #watercolorpainting #cat #sketchbook #sketch #exercise #learning #drawing #watercolorcat #cats #schminckehoradam @schmincke_official #schminckekünstlerfarben #aquarell #wildcat #leipzig #artelements #art__elements #saraccinobycf #saraccino #leipzigram #lieblingsleipzig
One of the little sculptures my husband creates! . “Notwendiger Ernst. Wäre gern ein Kamel.“ . A play of words that is difficult to translate. Ernst can be a name or mean seriousness/eanest in german. Like the title “the importance of being Earnest“ . “Necessary Earnest. Would like to be a camel.“ . #sculpture #earnest #polymer clay #playful #monster #art #sculptures #absurd #smile #artist #leipzig #artelements #art__elements #leipzigram #lieblingsleipzig #saraccinobycf #saraccino #Weihnachtsmarkt #christmas #market #werk2 #werk2leipzig
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Going the other direction - let go of any control. Maybe not the best in a sketch book even though it was made for water color 😂 I love the left decaying flower, the othet two not so much.

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Painted last night in a hotel room after aconference day. I found the inspiration in a strange outdoor magazine for “tough“ men 😂 . I used 784, 787, and 229. 784 and 787 are my favorite paints (Schmincke Horadam) but I rarely if ever used 229.

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Color swatches I also used for simple and playful sketches 😊 Swatches are from @danielsmithartistsmaterials (dot card selection #janedavenport ) and then I added simple shapes with payne's grey blueish from @schmincke_official and stars with @uniball.de white gel pen... so this is also a little #sneakpeak for this month's theme challenge at @art__elements - Stars! 🌟 . #nightsky #aethemechallenge #aestars #artelements #art__elements #danielsmithwatercolors #schminckehoradam #schmincke_official #uniball #stars #sky #colorswatches #playful #watercolor #silhouettes #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #leipzigram #leipziglove #playful #sketchbook #exercise
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I started creating the background without any aim in mind. I had some dot cards that I wanted to use up. The dots were nearly fully used but I can't stand any waste of paint! After it dried I saw the ocean, stormy clouds, bright spits of light. So I looked for some harbour images to add some shadowy silhouettes. I am still learning to keep the balance between details and this special wild, wonderful expression only water color has. (I love all kind of media because there is something special in all of them). The background is mainly Daniel Smith with some handmade green earth from me (cleaning my palette ;) ) and for the silhouettes I used perylene green from Schmincke Horadam. . @danielsmithartistsmaterials @schmincke_official #watercolor #watercolorpainting #ocean #industrial #harbor #ship #sailboat #sea #storm #clouds #sky #sketch #journaling #sketchbook #artjournal #danielsmithwatercolors #schminckehoradam #schmincke_official #handmadewatercolors #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #leipziglove #lieblingsleipzig
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - Another fish to go! The background poseidonia is not finished... (yes, I know goldfish and poseidonia are not in the same kind of water... but poseidonia will always be my favorite inspiration for underwater scenes!) ....but not sure whether I ever will finish it or rather create a new sketch or full painting. .

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I like to sketch in advance before I start using water color in my images. Sometimes I want to play with colour instantly, at other times it can take days or weeks (or never ;) ). I try to get better at drawing - not for perfect realistic images, I prefer lose, expressionistic water color paintings - but to get my proportions right! . I use photos on Instagram for inspiration. I tag them in advance and have a look at them for inspiration. The end picture is often really different but I need photo references for the proportions. . Maybe you can find them! ;) Flowers - @justakemeanywhere Bird - @geninne Landscape - @sashacrowdesigns Snail - @asari.wildlife . #inspiration #nature #wildflowers #wildlife #landscape #sketching #sketchbook #journaling #watercolor #excercise #learning #drawing #daily #bird #snail #flowers #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #leipzigram #iloveleipzig
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I bought some handmade water colour paper a long time ago. Rough surface, 5x5cm (aprox. 2x2in)... The paper is lovely but I was hiding it in my stash... at least the last sheets. So I urged myself to use them for some fast sketches/exercises: Florals! These are the last nine sheets - now I need to bind them. I like to use my sketch books as references and in case I need some ideas ;) . I got them at @boesner_de and although this paper is expensive, this tiny format is quite affordable to test it. . #watercolorpainting #floral #floralwatercolor #watercolor #schminckekünstlerfarben #schminckehoradam #plants #flowers #nature #sketching #excercise #learning #paper #paperart #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #leipzigram #iloveleipzig #sketchbook
