Day 28 a 

The last day of my challenge to fill a sketchbook in 30 days ! Hurrrraaayyyyyyy ! I did it ... The sketchbook is full and I should have enough ideas for bigger paintings for the next few months :) 
I have enjoyed that project very much ... Not only to have FINALLY a full sketchbook, but also the challenge to come up with new ideas, even when you think  "Today I can't think of anything" ! I also had such an amazing response from my 'Red Bubble' friends, that I have to recommend to other artists who are not on Red Bubble to try it out ! I am somehow already missing my sketchbook ...I think tomorrow I will have to get a new one.... ;-)


  1. a stunning finale! I can't wait to see larger pieces based on your sketches. I love your neutral palette with that shocking hit of red. And there is something that feels very deeply intuitive and spiritual about all these pieces.

  2. Congratulations Michele! Well done!

  3. Wirklich wunderbares Finale.
    Also Deine Ideen mit dem Mädchen und dem Wolf sind wirklich sagenhaft.Gratuliere.
    Aber auch die anderen Werke sind sehr bemerkenswert.
    das " Buch " ist für mich ... ein Bestseller.
    ganz liebe Grüße nach Melbourne
    ist es jetzt sehr kalt bei Euch?

  4. Well done Michele. I would find it difficult to keep up every day AND produce such amazing work. As zendot commented the rich red with the neutrals is stunning.

  6. Wow, I love all of your sketches/watercolors. Thanks for sharing, roxanne

  7. I'm so glad I came across your site. Your work is FABulous! The series of sketches in your 30 day book is so rich. Your images have a magical quality that I really love and there's a rawness that really pulls me in. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Tchao-wow from Portugal.

  8. thank you everybody for all your beautiful comments :) I had now a little bit of a rest and am now back at work ....!!!

  9. These Red Riding Hood paintings are so powerful to me -- I am inspired and want to paint some red riding hoods of my own! You are truly amazing - I have so much to learn!
    PS I hope this comment posts - I am having trouble getting it to go.
