My ArtVenture: Watercolor painting: Last Christmas“

in steempress •  8 months ago  (edited)




Hello dear Steemians,


Today my painting is associated with the symbol of Christmas that happens every year. It is ear worn from 80s of my favorite group “Wham” that is “Last Christmas”. Both members of the group imprinted their names with this song in eternity. George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, formed „Wham“ in London in 1980 of course became very popular in 80’s.

When I heard it first time I was in my teens and seeing that beautiful video of snowing day in mountains where the friends spending their Christmas eve and when every wish can come true.

I remember everybody loved this song from the first time and the video was almost the whole month on television. I think since then every Christmas and actually December month starts with this song. For me I love it and can listen every day and do not mind to listen few times too.

My hubby loves the song but after one time he has enough. So when it come on TV he just tries to switch the programs to other channel. But definitely on Christmas eve we will listen once again and probably the last time for this year the Song until the next Christmas.



My step-by-step process:

Cool. Selbst auf den kl. Previewbildern sofort erkannt. Das war deren beste Zeit. Club Tropicana läßt grüßen.... und vergiß nicht: Wake me up before you go go :-)

Danke für das Kompliment Andy :-)
Ich habe mein Bestes gegeben, um dieses Bild zu malen."Wham" ist eine meiner Lieblingsgruppen aus den 80ern und natürlich ein notwendiger Bestandteil von Weihnachten. Was währe Weihnachten ohne "Last Christmas"?

날로 그림 솜씨가 좋아지네요 매력적인 웃는

Thank you Veronica. It is difficult doing portrait with watercolor because it dries so quickly but once you get used to it, it is very rewarding :)

(google-translator) 베로니카 감사합니다. 너무 빨리 마르기 때문에 수채화로 초상화를 만드는 것은 어렵지만 일단 익숙해지면 매우 보람이 있습니다. :)
