I’m simply….. working

By paolafalconi   /     Nov 01, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

Working in my studio is one of the activities that I love most in my life.

Closing my studio’s door and find myself in my own world is a beautiful experience for a nature like mine.

While I’m working I like to surround myself with objects that I like, objects that recall me someone or something, objects that inspire me.

Here are my last works from the “Birds Series”. The background is done with a Windsor & Newton indigo watercolor. I draw the birds using a watercolor pencil. I like the effect because I love the night that make me think a moment when we all stop and we can find again ourselves.

Looking for autumn colors

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 23, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

One of the moments I prefer during the day is when I walk around my house with my dog Jack. Anytime of the day or night.

Yesterday there was stormy weather with strong wind that cleared the sky perfectly. The final result today was an incredible shiny light that amplified all the color of the nature.

I’ve taken my camera/phone and I’ve started to take a lot of pictures trying to find vivid colors that will inspire me during my winter working days.

A perfect relaxing weekend activity: carving stamps.

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 05, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

Today is sunday, the sky is blue and I think that by the sea should be fantastic, even if it’s october 5th and fall has arrived.
Despite the family discussions on how to spend this sunday, at the end we have chosen to stay home and relax. I’ve immediately took advantage of this situation to do an activity that I love so much, also because is a sort of sculpting exercise, my very first love.
Last june we’ve done a trip to New York and through airbnb we rented a house in the 15th, near the Greenwich Village. My house was very close to a fantastic little artist’s shop called The Ink Pad. Here I’ve found all the tools and materials needed to do carving stamps and once back home I’ve started to test this technique having a lot of fun.
Here some pictures of my collection that is growing slowly, every time I’ve some moments to spend on it.
I’ve used “Speedball” for carving and “Staedtler Master Carve” Artist Carving Block.
I hope I’ve inspired you to find a new relaxing and creative activity. With such stamps you can personalize your stationary, books and any kind of paper you use in your daily life.
I wish you fantastic moments with the ones you care.
