Postcard Project Continues


Here I am: the crazy postcard maker making my art. Today I’m going to show you to last weeks postcard sketches of the Postcard Project. Are you ready for 7 more postcards. If yes, roll down.postcardproject_ellimaanpaa_2014_1Lady in Red. I bought a new shade of ink to celebrate the upcoming Christmas. 9.10.2014

postcardproject_sketch_ellimaanpaa_2014_1 Dramatic woman in the shades of violet. I spent most of this day in a film set so that might have to do with the dramatic tone of this postcard. 10.10.2014

postcardproject_sketch_ellimaanpaa_2014_2 Baby owl. I’ve always enjoyed drawing birds but this time I was also inspired by the bird drawing competition @solly_dw introduced in instagram. 12.10.2014

postcardproject_sketch_ellimaanpaa_2014_3 Artistic piece with beret and stripes. This picture doesn’t do justice to the textures of the painting. 12.10.2014

postcardproject_sketch_ellimaanpaa_2014_4 Freckled girl with pink hairpiece. 13.10.2014

postcardproject_sketch_ellimaanpaa_2014_5 More pink and birds. This card was sent to probably to the youngest participant of the postcard project. 14.10.2014

postcardproject_sketch_ellimaanpaa_2014_6 Yesterdays portrait again got some familiar facial features. Unconsciously I keep on adding my own nose etc to my muses. I photographed the piece in the Heya’s bathroom (that’s why it’s a artistic selfie) beacause it’s getting really dark and the place there is most light in the workroom is the toilet. Bright happy toilet it is. 15.10.2014
