Some I have shown before maybe, but I finished them and am done with that book. I started another but its on drawing paper and so I am colouring with coloured pencils. Not liking it much.
Most of these are watercolour. Nothing spectacular but I will share anyway.
I borrowed the next one from someone, well the idea anyway. I was trying to get the shine on the shell and I do quite like it
Most of these do not photo well as all I do is a quick shot without setting them up properly
I am not doing anything in any sort of order, nothing is organized. I am just doing a rough draft of ideas. At some point I may go back and actually pick some of the ideas up and do proper pictures,
In most cases I am still not trying for realism here. I want to get the idea of more childlike pictures with the idea of maybe illustrating. To do that I must loosten up. Depending on what I decide to do in the end. Probably nothing but I am enjoying the process
I do enjoy doing simple faces
I know I am posting a lot this time and some is already familiar but rather than sort them I am just putting them out here.
A couple of Haiku thrown in
Thats it.........thank goodness. This Winter I am thinking of making some painted stones. I have loads of ideas but will it get done. Tristen is in school all day now, well I have to leave at 2.30 but thats still a bit of free time. Then again I also want to quilt and do other sewing projects so who knows how this Winter will go. Meanwhile I am still making the most of whats left of summer
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.
