Earrings




I went to a bead shop in Amsterdam yesterday, it's like beads paradise! They have all types of beads. I made these very simple earrings and perhaps I'll do a necklace or a bracelet with the 8 red beads I got left, they go well with some light pink beads I had...

Pink baby set



I've finally bought the buttons and finished the pink baby set, it's ready to be sent!

Watercolours






I did a watercolours course this year at the Koorenhuis in the Hague. We mostly painted dead natures and flowers. These were some of the works I did during that course. I really like the transparency effect you get when painting with this technique. I guess one of the difficulties in watercolour painting is in learning how to anticipate the behavior of water, rather than attempting to control or dominate it. Once it has dry off it's almost impossible to correct something that didn't work out very well. On the other hand you can get some pleasant surprises sometimes!
