Postcards Without The Project

Postcard sketch Elli Maanpää 2014-2015

Postikorttiprojektin jälkeen olen jatkanut postikorttipapereille piirtämistä. Olet saattanut nähdä osan näistä piirustuksista instagram-tililläni @ellimaanpaa aiemmin. After the Postcard Project I have continue sketching on the postcard papers. You might have seen some of these drawings in my instagram account @ellimaanpaa earlier. Jos minulla ei ole musteita käden ulottuvilla olen käyttänyt väritykseen myös puuvärejä, … If I haven’t had inks at hand

Guinea Pigs

Piirsin veljenpojilleni – jotka asuvat aurinkoisessa Californiassa – marsupostikortit. Jotta rauha säilyy kotona, lähetin molemmille oman kortin. Mukavaa viikkoa!

Big And Small Cats

Tonight is the second Night Of The Cats in the Korkeasaari Zoo. I wrote a post about the event last Saturday. So last few weeks been very much about cats – small and big ones – and that can be seen in my sketch-a-day drawings as well. Here are couple of smartphone photographs of the

I Will Make It Happen

Today started with mixed feelings since I had to make some hard choices. Nothing too dramatic but choices of how I want’t to use my time this Autumn. Do I want to take singing lessons (yes) or take part in a improvisation course (I’d love to but couldn’t register on time). In the end of

Delirious

Can you believe it’s already 1st of September? It’s sad to say good bye to Summer but it’s nice to welcome Autumn after long warm Summer. Delirious is a sketch-a-day painting I did already in July. But since I did it while visiting Turku and left the piece there I only now had a chance
