Mixed media painting 多媒體畫作

For the last few weekends I was so enjoying the basic acrylic painting class.  Today's last session I walked away with the skills and got inspired to apply in my multi-media creation.
My Last post of painting on a silk chiffon .
過去的十個週末我很享受彩繪畫班, 雖然是初階已學習到好些技巧, 我將纖維與羊毛結合創作 以羊兒為主題的質感畫作, 
I made the textured painting with the sheep theme as Lunar New Year is approaching.  Themed picture of the Year of the Ram is atmospheric.
I made the texture of sheep with raw fleece, a little yarn and merino with nuno felt skill.
After the slightly rubbing and rolling, nuno felt is done.
I used the textile Mod Podge mounted over 2/3 of the canvas frame.  Cut the mountain line and little creases texture.
After dried, painted it with acrylic.
Finished. I call it "Snowy Sheep"
Mogi, who's always the judge.
Made another one with a wood board.  Same theme of sheep.
The seven roaming sheep in a spring field.
Also creases for the tree trunk, branches and the field.
This one I call it "Blue Mountain Roaming Sheep"
"Mogi, what do you think?"
Well, the two textural painting of multi-media for the Year of the Ram.
Hope to learn the upcoming intermediate class and get inspired.
My new friends may like to view some more works from my facebook. Please feel free to browse.

Theme of the Year of the Sheep 羊年喜氣 "羊羊"

            The upcoming Chinese New Year falls on 19 Feb. 
 With the zodiac of Year of the Sheep (Ram or Goat), I made something of wool felt related to sheep. Of course wool is the media and the sheep is the theme. Not much like doing needle felt but I did make the small sheep.
今年農曆年是羊年, 藉此做些以羊仔為主題的手作. 針氈小羊兒, 濕氈羊毛畫及在牆壁塗畫小羊. 充滿喜氣 "羊羊".......
   This is a wool felt painting of landscape with yurts and gazing sheep.
 In Mongolia the traditional roof of the yurt is made with wool felted blankets but this one is my Israeli friend Rachel's son with family lives in the North near Galilee.  Last March when I was there Rachel took me there for a visit. Post of my last Israel visit.
 There're a few yurts in the site.  
 Simply life for the family. One of the yurts is a playground for the kids. Rachel made the eco printed vest for the grandkid.  I helped stitching the seams.
 View through the door is endless green field with pretty wild flowers.
 I was relaxing with the dog ......
 and watching the free-range hens.....
With the beautiful memory of the Israel landscape, I came up the landscape picture of yurts and sheep instead of hens
 This is the finished wet felt picture of sheep
 Who knows I felted the yurt with this hair from my Chinchilla fluffy ball !
 As it's the Year of the Sheep for the Chinese New Year, I made a phone pouch with both sides sheep. Red packets are given during the new year days
Red is fortune, red is luck, red is welcome. 
  
"Mum's ready for the New Year of Sheep and painted the wall with a little sheep !!"
Wish the Year of Sheep brings luck to you all !

Nuno felt with painting 混纖畫作絲巾

Recently I learnt the basic acrylic painting. Indeed I hope to do my multi-media creations colorful.  Flowers and cats painting are what I like most  Mogi is my model ........ 
愛上彩繪, 畫花畫貓是的喜做的習作.
 
 He helps me holding the chiffon while I do the painting (silly boy !!)
畫在雪紡絲巾上
Yup, finished. That's the silk chiffon for a nuno felt scarf.  I use acrylic as it will not "bleeding" and ever last.
48小時乾透後 不退色

After the paint dried in 48 hours,  I put the merino wool along the edges and fringes on other sides as well a little mulberry silk and  Wenslaydale wool for the textures.
放上羊毛 、亮麗蠶絲,  開始做羊毛混絲巾...
 After rubbing, rolling and slightly moving action, a scarf is done. 一輪搓揉後便成型
 He, who is a territorial occupant finds it his own !!
哈 ! 小子以為是他的 !! 好開心 哩 !
                              A scarf is a scarf for ladies, not for pets.
                                                                             名貴漂亮絲巾當然是自己用呵




 Wensleydale is good texture and little mulberry silk for lustrous


 Nuno felt scarf with little wool is ideal for all seasons.
 I painted it and made it from scratch.
 I learn from basic and needs practice. It's fun to paint.  That's me in the kindergarten stage......... 近日開始塗鴉, 小兒科的畫 .
At least he's the one appreciates it !!??
看來都有這小子一顧
 Silly boy !!

Hiking 2015 started with the "Back Garden of Hong Kong - Sai Kung 西貢大浪西之行

Sai Kung Tai Long Wan with the Sharp Peak (蚺蛇尖) behind.

To escape from the hustle and bustle, what's more pleasant for me is hiking. Since last June I joined the hiking team for the every Friday outing, I enjoy so much our stunning scenery.  Hong Kong is small  but with steps away brilliant greenery. The vast land and sea area of the  Sai Kung Peninsula remains untouched by urbanisation. 
Today we started the trail in Sai Kung - the "Back Garden" of Hong Kong, 
不管是東南西北, 香港的郊野景色怡人, 是日周五行山徑是西貢大浪西, 三個多小時的行程在清爽天氣下輕鬆地上山、 踏沙, 留下美景。
 
Trail started from the Sai Wan Pagoda
Up and down the trail.....
along the mountain......
 stepped the fine sand of the beach.....
We arrived the Tai Long Wan, ideal for campers...
The climbed up the hill to the other bay...
Gazing cows as free as us.....
Campers were already there last night
Crossed the wooden bridge leading to the other side of the bay
Cows sun bathing in the warm day
We're onwards along the coastal line
Abandoned village since people gone to the town for works and living some years ago.
Ruins with views inside out
The tranquility we can feel
No matter which direction, Hong Kong is a brilliant city with stunning views everywhere.
