Hello there!!! How have you been? I hope you all are doing fine.

Today I want to show you my miniatures. I painted  on some Limoges white porcelain. I bought them in Italy last December. I have been collecting Limoges white porcelain miniature boxes because I love them. They are so cute, and it’s always so much fun to paint miniature flowers or something on them! I hope you like my hand painted miniature boxes.

I used the patterns from Brigit Porter’s studies, but I didn’t use her techniques. I have been learning one-fire techniques from my painting school for years. So, I painted these boxes with the techniques from my school during I was doing my assignments to use the same colors.

I haven’t painted miniatures for a while, and I really enjoyed painting them. I still have some Limoges boxes and want to paint on them again!

I hope I can see you all on my art blog next week! I will try my best!!

Have a lovely weekend!!!

Bird Painting with Fat Oil

Posted in birds, Dresden, European Style, Meissen Style, Miniatures with tags , , , , , on July 14, 2015 by yumi

Hi there! How are you doing today?

Here in Japan, every day is too muggy and without air conditioners it’s hard for us to live. I have been complaining a lot against this weather. Ah, I really really hate Japanese summer.

Well, have you been painting? I am busy for my assignments for my school, but I want to paint different subjects from my school. I just started thinking what I want to paint. You will see what I paint on my blog later.

Today, I want to show you my bird painting. This bird’s design is from the Meissen factory, and this is one of my assignments for my school.

This is one fire.  I painted the bird with fat oil.

I like this simple design a lot. I hope you all like my bird painting with the European techniques as well.

Thank you as always for your support! See you next week on my blog again!

The GA School By The Sea Porcelain Arts School

Posted in American Syle, European Style, landscapes, Meissen Style, Miniatures, My Trip, Portrait, The GA Seminar by the Sea Porcelain Art School with tags , , , , , on March 27, 2013 by yumi

Hi there!!!!

How have you been? It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I returned to Japan from America a week ago. While I was there, I started walking in the morning and I still have been keeping on walking every morning in Japan. It’s really good for me to start a day.

Today’s entry is what I painted in America. I got in the GA school by the sea porcelain arts school and took three classes from international teachers.

My first class was painting a miniature scene with an ex Meissen painter, Joerg Kugelmeier. I met him at the Thai convention last year, and even though I exchanged a small conversation with him, I didn’t talk to him. So, I was a bit nervous to take his class, but taking his class was extremely fun and I really enjoyed it. He was a great teacher and painter. I love painting with the Meissen technqiues. I’m thinking that to go his painting studio in Germany to learn the Meissen techniques more next year! Thank you so much for teaching, Joerg! I’m looking forward to piking on our BAD English each other again, lol!!!!!

My second class was painting a miniature portrait with Cookie Barton, an American portrait painter. Since I like painting royal families, I really enjoyed painting the boy’s portrait. Cookie was also a very good teacher. Since she invited me to go to her painting studio in Oregon, I really want to stop by her painting studio to take her class more!!

She didn’t touch my portrait and just taught me how to paint it. I love the way that a teacher doesn’t touch a student painting because I can think about my painting.

My Last class was how to do raised past and gold with Sylvia Beythoun from England. I met her three years ago at the Arizona school for the first time. Since then she has been my friend. I love raised pasts and gold, but I’m not good at it and I needed a good teacher. I’m glad that I learned it from her. I really love her gorgeous work and from now on, I want to use the techniques on a lot of my work! I also plan on going to England to learn more from her next year!! See you next year, Sylvia!!!!

Dresdens with the American Style!!!!!

Posted in American Syle, Dresden, European Style, flower painting, Meissen Style with tags , , , , , , on February 1, 2013 by yumi

Hi there!

Today I got my digital camera from the electric shop where I bought it. I took some my newest Dresden plates’s pictures immidiataly!

I’m happy that I can show my newest artwork here again!!

I painted them with open medium and named the techniques Dresden with the American style because I usually paint Dresdens with fat oil.

I used some San Do’s painting medium and mixing medium, but I’m happy they seem to be as pretty as painting with some fat oil.

I used my Dresden teacher, Alfredo Tradano’s Dresden patterns, but I I painted them with some Japanese colors for Dresden, some Japanese and British blushes that I’ve been used to, some San Do’s mixing and painting medium. I designed them by myself. I think for Dresden beginners, using some open medium is much easier to handle. I like this techniques.

My Snake Plate with Some Chelsea Birds

Posted in birds, Dresden, European Style, Fantasy, flower painting, International Convention, Meissen Style, Nyon Rose with tags , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2012 by yumi

Hi, everyone!  I returned to Japan from Thailand last night. I had a great great time with my friends, Ingrid and Helga there. I will report the Thai convention later on another blog entry and this time I want to show one of my exhivision pieces.

I ordered the plate online. When I looked at it, I thought it was very unique because it had some relieves of snakes. My Chinese zodiac is a snake and I thought it might be a lucky charm for me. It was true, and I received an award at the Thai convention. I will show my award piece later on another entry too.

My American friend, Dixie loves Chelsea birds and I’ve known she has wanted to paint them. So, I designed the plate for her.

I added some snake scales and it worked out for my snake plate beautifully. When one of my painting teachers,  Ivonne Planos looked at my plate, she praised me very much at the Thai convention. I was very happy at the moment.  I painted the plate with some pine oil and lavender oil.

When I paint other Chelsea birds, I want to try to paint with some different oil.

The Michigan School: Michian Porcelain Artists Spring Retreat

Posted in European Style, flower painting, Meissen Style, The Michigan Shcool with tags , , , , on May 12, 2012 by yumi

Hi, there! Loooooooooooooooong time no see! How have you been?

I studied abroad in America again , and the day before yesterday I returned to Japan! Although I’ve been suffering from a jet lag, I’d love to update my blog entry!

Today’s entry is about my best American friend, Gay’s school, Michigan Porcelain Artists Spring Retreat! She just started her own school this year!

Here is her school’s website: http://michiganporcelainartists.weebly.com/

I attended her school and took a Cuban painter, Ivonne Planos’s class.

Here is my work! I painted it with her.

I have done raised paste in Japan, but I didn’t like it because I couldn’t do it well. After I used Ivonne’s raised paste, it was great! I came to like it!

I love Ivonne’s artwork because they seem to be classic and elegant and have a lot of details. I also love adding a lot of tiny details on my work. I learned a lot from her. I especially love her wonderful raised paste and gold works! They are really really beautiful!

I misspainted this bottom part, and I painted with a blue color all part of it. So, I changed a little bit my vase’s design. Mine is different from other students, but I prefer mine.

This class was a six days class. It was the first time for me to melt some powder colors with some turpentine oil and copaiba. Ivonne covered with her mix blue over my base once. After only one fire, it turned out very pretty shiny blue. I’d love to use her techniques when I cover whole things with some colors. Her techniques are really useful and easy.

Her class was very interesting. All her classmates became good friends and we enjoyed chatting while painting. I’d love to take her class again! Thank you so much for teaching me a lot, Ivonne!

I met some friends at Gay’s school again. I also met new friends and teachers.

I’m so happy because all of them remembered my name and face. Every time they saw me, they spoke to me!

This time I didn’t have much time to hang out with my painting friends because I had to prepare for the convention in Canada after class. I’d been painting almost until midnight every day.  Gay prepared some events; going antiques after class, bingo games and so on, and I really wanted to attend, but I couldn’t do it. Even so,  I enjoyed watching some demonstrations.  I already signed up her school for next year, so I’m looking forward to meeting my friends there again! Gay’s school just started, but I really hope her school will become one of the most popular porcelain painting schools in the world!
