Today was a beautiful day. I sat outside on the deck with my paint box and sketching book. I had already drawn most of the pictures and this was a perfect day to fill them in. Good light.
Well they will be fiddled with from now till I close up this book but you can take a peek as they are now......I will go back through the pages and add some words as they come to me.
Sometimes I get an idea from other blogs, sometimes from books and some just come to me.
some things I just can't explain. (above) This little lady is way too stiff, but not as bad as she started out, I must read up a bit on this technique. I could not get her to relax.
More faces and stuff
Practice with eyes
more birds and flowers, never get tired of them
Animals always a great subject for me, now to get them lifelike without overdoing it
That is not easy, some people can just make them live with just the colour and mix of the paint. I am not there yet
Frogs from a book I have..........
............so thats that.
By the way, that is hay, not his rocket boosters
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.
