Tulips


Time seems to disappear when I am painting.


Australia's never ending summer had me in the mood for tulips.  
Inspired by Mr Marshal's flower book.

woyww - slow progress


The only thing different from last week is the sketch of a moth.  At this rate it would be quicker to watch a moth emerge from its cocoon.

Hope your week has been more productive.

woyww - next painting


My desk on a Wednesday night looks dark and dingy.  The Attacus Atlas moth is sitting on my easel as I try to decide whether to paint the moth or do February's tutorial (a coconut) with Anna Mason.  The only similarity between the two subjects is the colour.  I just cannot get inspired by a coconut so I might paint the moth.  All too hard so I am going to leave the moth on the desk until I make a decision.


Last weeks wreath with a few additions just before it gets popped in the mail.

Have a lovely woyww peek and I promise to visit slowly over the next few days.

woyww - card making on a desk


Not often that I post a pic of my latest card making marathon.  In this case whipping up a few bird cards from last weeks Kingfisher.  


Painting something a little different this week.  My daughter has requested a floral wreath for a colleague. Luckily I remembered to cover her name before I took a photo otherwise the surprise would be a bit flat.  Looking to add a few more flowers or leaves before I hand it over and will probably remove the pencil sketch of the bottle behind the bow.  But, I will wait for her highness to give me more instructions.

Have a lovely woyww peek and I will visit lots of desks over the weekend.

woyww - summery things





A touch of summer to brighten your woyww.  

A pretty Kingfisher painted during Anna Mason's online workshop and finished last night.




 The completed sunflower from weeks ago.

.  
After a few beautiful days on the beach my desk should be back to normal by the weekend.

Have a lovely woyww visit.

woyww - sunflower glow


Working on a sunflower.  Once I finish the centre I will then balance out all the colours on the petals and leaves.  The petals took ages and I plan to finish it this afternoon.  Otherwise the painting just goes on and on.  The kingfisher is on hold and hopefully will see some paint this weekend.

Have a lovely woyww peek at everyone's desk.

woyww - happy 2018 ready to paint but tidied the storeroom instead


This month's tutorial from Anna Mason's online workshop is a beautiful kingfisher and I could hardly wait to get started.  But, I got side tracked and tidied up the pantry/store room and two days later the bird is still waiting.  I do have a very tidy store room which makes me feel I have started 2018 by recycling/throwing out the previous years stuff.     


The finished fungi composition.  

Just wondering if any woyww's have sold craft/art on Etsy and would love to know your thoughts or recommendations for the site.  

Happy woyww and I promise to slowly visit over the next few days.
