First some birds.....not sure now what I already posted so here goes.....Choockie
Working on hummers..........as you see these are not what you would call paintings, just practicing my looseness.
I am trying to paint without drawing first and just highlighting with a pen after. This is called Coming in for a landing. I saw the basic idea somewhere and then just did it from memory so hope its not too much like the original because I am not trying to copy people. Just get ideas to practice with.
This little bird has gone through several incarnations before becoming this one. I think I ended up with a blue bird but was aiming for an Indigo Bunting
A little French village street maybe?
To the Beach...........that was us yesterday. Catch our adventure on Bluebell Woods
Thats it for today folks.............I appreciate comments and critiques. Only way I will improve
Sharing with The dedicated House make it pretty Monday
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
