Morning, Friday is becoming one of my favourite days of the week as its Paint Party Friday and I get to see a gallery of beautiful artwork by some fab artists (see my sidebar). One of the questions Kristin and Eva (hosts) asked us this week was how long we have been painting.........gulp gulp.........and what inspired us to paint. Well am going to be totally honest here. Started classes last year learning to draw and watercolour paint. When I started, couldn't even draw a box.........and still can't..........lol My inspiration to start with was purely practical. Just couldn't afford to buy all the stamps I wanted so thought why not learn to draw........... Since then have found I love drawing faces and adore the use of colour. Last week was my first painting using acrylics and was really struggling, but this fabulous group of artists left me many useful tips and gave me loads of encouragement, thank you so much.
The acrylic painting this week is called 'Thinking' because am not sure what to add to it, so its work in progress. The second piece was inspired by 'Nelly's Junk Drawer' and was drawn in black pen and coloured with Whisper Pens.
As you can see I have a long way to go, but am thoroughly enjoying the journey. Have completed the watercolour from the other week 'Poppy Girl' so hopefully you can see the difference.
Sorry about the long post and hope I haven't bored you to death........ Martin is slowly recovering from all the extractions but not sure if he can eat all the Easter Eggs, so guess will have to help him out..............lol Wishing you all a Very Happy Easter and to thank you for all your brilliant support.
