woyww - painting a waratah


This weeks desk has a waratah (Telopea speciosissima) which is 2/3 finished.  Painting leaves  currently and the plan is to finish it over the weekend.  The painting and the photo don't quite match as it is a combination of  different photos taken from the internet.  Trying to make sure I don't get  nasty emails about copyright etc.  Not that I have received emails but when the photos have watermarks I just assume credit is due to the owner and I shouldn't do a direct copy.  When I draw up from combinations of photos it can be difficult to capture the light on  the flowers and leaves accurately.  But what the heck it's all good practice.  Yuck just noticed the water jar needs to be changed :o

Have a lovely woyww peek and I promise to pop around over the next couple of nights and over the weekend.

woyww - sweet pink rose


A completed rose is sitting on my desk this Wednesday.  Happy with the end result which was painted over the Easter weekend.  The leaves took ages ... in the end I missed some of the veins.  So don't look too closely :) Once again all credit to Anna Mason's online classes.  This time I painted from the reference picture and relied on what I have learnt from previous tutorials.


A woyww desk photo to keep in the spirit of the post.

woyww - happy easter



My painting desk is pretty much at a standstill as I have finished painting and waiting for those big eggs to dry.


Close up of the completed song thrush eggs from Anna Mason's May tutorial.  

Turned out to be a lot trickier than it looks.

Happy woyww and happy easter

woyww - bits and pieces


A birds eye view of the bits and pieces on my other desk.  Repurposing old watercolour backgrounds and bringing out a collection of lovely dies (thank you RosA).  Hopefully inspiration will strike and a few ATC's will be the result.

Hope you are having a great woyww.
