Miniatures Boxes

Posted in Dresden, European Style, flower painting, KPM Berlin, Meissen Style, Miniatures, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 19, 2017 by yumi

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!!!

Painting with Simona-Marina Braathen from France マスタークラブ大阪のシモナ先生のセミーに参加させていただきました

This entry is both in Japanese and English, but I don’t translate what I write in English into Japanese, visa versa. If you are interested in what I write in your unknown language, feel free to ask me. I am willing to tell you.

昨日、お誘いいただいてマスタークラブ大阪支部のセミナーに参加してきました。先生は、フランス人のシモナ・マリナ先生で、細かいレースの描き方を習ってきました。マスタークラブの展示会が大阪であり、シモナ先生はその展示会のために来日されていました。私は、初めてそのセミナーに参加させていただきました。シモナ先生とは2年前、フロリダのIPATショーでお会いしたことがありますが、その時は、全くお話ししませんでした。だから、セミナーの前、英語が通じるのか少し不安でした。結局は、心配する必要など全くありませんでした。先生の英語は素晴らしく、どんな質問にも答えてくださいました。マスタークラブ大阪の皆さんも初めて参加した私にとても親切に接してくださいました。楽しくおしゃべりしながら新しいことを習うのは、本当に楽しかったです。シモナ先生、マスタークラブ大阪の皆様、大変お世話になりました。今回マスタークラブの作品展にお邪魔させていただくことができず、セミナーだけの参加となりましたことお詫び申し上げます。次回は是非作品展にお邪魔して、皆様の素晴らしい作品を拝見させていただくのを楽しみにしております。また、マスタークラブのますますのご発展をお祈り申し上げます。 金澤 由美子

Yesterday, I took a class from Simona-Marina Braathen from France in Osaka, Japan with members of Master club. Master Club had an exhibition and she was visiting Japan as a feature artist for the show. Master Club is a porcelain painting club in Japan to improve our painting skills. I am not a member, but some of members asked me to take the class. Well, I had a great time with members and Simona. It was so much fun! I was just in love with her techniques because I love preciseness, lol. We made a pendant to scratch the surface of the porcelain with unfired black paints with a toothpick. The butterfly on the porcelain looks lace! The techniques were amazing!! I learned some new techniques, and now I have so many ideas to use them on my works.

First of all, I want to finish my piece. Secondly, I want to practice what I learned. Thirdly, I want to create my own art with the techniques!

You will see my piece with Simona’s techniques some day soon.

Thank you as always for your support! See you around here again next weekend!

Nyon Style

Posted in European Style, flower painting, Miniatures, Nyon Rose, Uncategorized on July 16, 2016 by yumi

Hello there! How are you spending this weekend? I hope you all are having fun!

Today I will show you my Nyon painting. I haven’t painted this style for a while and it was good for me to practice it.

I got the porcelain in the States a couple of years ago. Small porcelain is always good for painting Nyon style. When you get some small porcelain, I suggest you to try out the Nyon style! Your white porcelain will look very cute in it!

My Mice Paintings

Posted in American Syle, Animal painting, competition, Uncategorized on July 2, 2016 by yumi

Hello there! How are you doing this weekend? I hope you are having a good time!

Today I show you my animal paintings. I painted these in Michigan. While I was there, my American friend Gay shared that they would have a show at the end of June. I entered the pieces in the show. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a prize, but I enjoyed painting them.

They are small pieces, and the size is as same as a post card. I painted these to follow a color theory, and I think I finally understood it.

I like painting animals and I want to paint more. I hope you like my mice!

I am sorry. I edited the size and couldn’t fix it. Since I left these paintings at Gay’s, I can’t take pictures again. I hope you can see it, lol. I know it’s too small.

After I painted them, Gay framed them for me. Thank you so much, Gay!

Landscape

Posted in European Style, landscapes, Uncategorized on June 18, 2016 by yumi

Hi there! How are you doing this weekend? I hope you all are having fun!

Today I want to show my landscape painting. This is an assignment for my school. We have to paint this one with fat oil. Well, this one is not one fire. I fired this three times.

I can’t show my school textbook, but this one has no colored study. We receive a really bad conditioned black and white line drawing. the studies are two, and we have to convine the two different landscapes into one piece.  Then, we have to paint with our imagination. For me painting it was not so difficult, but the design to combine two different landscapes into one was a hard part. When you look at my piece, you can figure out some parts where you can’t make sense, lol. Most of students hate this subject, but I enjoyed it.

Now, I am making a tea set. After my teacher says, “Your pieces are done.”, I can show it you here.

Fruits

Hi there!

How have you been? I am doing pretty well and am glad I can keep blogging constantly.

Today, I want to show you my fruits paintings. These are very small pieces even though they are not miniatures.

These are one fire. I painted them with fat oil. To be honest, I think it’s much easier to paint with painting oil, and I think it looks better. However, these are assignments for my painting school, and I had to paint them with fat oil.

Next time I want to paint these with panting oil. It will be interesting to look at them in comparison.

Thank you as always for your support! Have a sweet weekend! See you next weekend on my blog again!
