This was for a contest "Europe school".

Guess what.^^ I WON THAT COMPETITION! Yayz!
The prize is a visit to the Germany Bad Marienberg youth gathering, where all the winners of the same competition in other europe countries will meet. Its five days long in the end of June. However, there is a big "but".:depressed: The main reason in that trip is to make some kind of a presentation of what and how do you think we all could change to make the living in Europe better. Sth about that they want to get young people opinions on that... :shrug:

AND I have to make a presentation of my own country, that how wonderful and great it is to live here, introduce my countrys traditions, dance and sing. Ugh, dream on. Im never gonna dance some folk neither sing.:giggle:

Oh yeah, and if I refuse to do that then they will bill me, meaning I have to pay for the lost money they put in just to send me to Germany and take part of theyre "workshops".

That aside, Im still happy I won.

Painted with gouache. The pic itself is size A1 and it took about 2 weeks to compleate. I painted it after scool about 2-3 hours every day.

The meaning of this picture is supposed to be how little country Estonia meets huge European countries and wants to be part of them.

This also participates in this "BLUE" contest [link] :boogie:

I can see this piece in a children's book as an illustration!
It seems this picture tells a story that we, the viewers, can imagine ourselves, it really lets our imagination fly which really is pretty positive.

The blues you have used are beautiful and the rather monochromatic colour scheme makes it seem like the little kid is in a dream or in a dreamy-like place. The weird-looking characters also help achieving this dream effect I mentioned before. :nod:

Overall, I think you did a good job with this piece and I'd love to see more paintings from you following this kid's 'adventure'. Keep it up! :aww:

väga hästi tehtud! Pilt tekitab tunde, kuidas naiivne ja ilus Eesti nende endast hästi arvavate ja ebainimlike sinivereliste sekka astuda tahab :)
