painted fashion

When in doubt, wear red ...
Or - wear black and paint red? 

Some new picture from a sunday painting session with my art-sister Andrea König.
She's the woman, who loves to cover all her canvases in deep, bright red - a royal, impressive powerhouse of a color. 

Sometimes we do collaborative paintings - and this time i joined in by adding a mysterious, kind of seductive figure of a woman, who moves through the red, dotted with solver, as though she moves through a silver veil, while listening to her own music ...

It was fun! The painting isn't finished yet, for there will be another layer of silver dots later - i'll show you, how it proceeds.


  1. Oh, how I love these little peek into your studio, Martina! Love the idea behind the painting: the red backdrop, the silver veil, the seductive lady... this is so intriguing. Cant wait to see the finished art work, I already know it will be super though!

  2. This is marvellous doll, love the colours and scene!! I hope you have a wonderful day xx

  3. it's interesting how the final version would look like!

  4. Wonderful work lovely Martina!...It must be so much fun for you to do collaborative paintings...I do love those colours too! I'll look forward to following your progress!
    Happy Tuesday,

    How fantastic to see your comment come in my dear friend! I am hoping that your summer is turning into one spa treatment of PEACE and relaxed days! All is well here, but today is the first day of a string of HOT and HUMID days. I'm staying in and staying still since too much activity is not good during this time.

    Isn't that silly little parakeet on the ball just hilarious? I love the unexpected.

    Wishing you a fabulous day my dear! Anita
