woyww - slow painting of a rose

Making slow progress on painting the rose, now up to the dark bits.  At this stage it is going to look like an ugly duckling for awhile longer.

Hope your desk is more interesting.

woyww - a rose and a kookaburra

Underpainting of a rose with lots of ruffled petals sits on my desk this Wednesday.  Hopefully I will get some time this weekend to shift it from pink to deep burgundy.

The completed kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae).  He turned out to be a fine fellow sitting happily while I painted every little feather!

A lovely catch up with RosA today and now sitting here admiring all the texture 
goodies she has made.

Have a lovely woyww.

woyww - leaves and a kookaburra

October has been a busy month and I found short bursts of time to finish the leaves.  
Started painting the Kookaburra on Sunday.

Plan to visit lots of desks over the weekend.
Happy woyww.

woyww - green leaf and a pink lily

My desk looks far too dark to be painting a leaf with all those intricate veins.

Completed Lily.

 Final pic is from the travels.

woyww - Tiger Lilly and travel sketch

Back from a lovely long holiday.   My desk shows slow progress on a pink lily.

 While on holidays I always take a sketch book and small art kit to paint some of the amazing places we visit. 

The plan is to post a travel journal pic every couple of days.

Have a great woyww.

woyww - poppy

Anna Mason's tutorial this month was a pretty poppy.  Painted over 4 days grabbing a few solid hours over the weekend and after work.  

Packing up all my arty/crafty stuff as we are off on a holiday.
Have a fun woyww.

woyww - a leaf and pour

Started painting the leaf after a morning walk.  By the time I came back to add some finishing touches the leaf had curled and light was not so good at my desk.  

Also tried my hand at an acrylic dirty pour.  So many great you tube clips on how to do this type of very free flowing art.  Made a mess and learnt a big lesson.  I had left the canvas outside on top of a box and came back hours later to find a square piece of plastic had floated by and landed on my canvas.  I tried to carefully peel it off but it has still left an imprint. Can you spot it?

That is all for me this week.
