Yipee its Paint Party Friday

Hi, this week has been a difficult one for us Bloggers, not being able to leave comments on some of our friends work.  I have now changed to Firefox as a temporary measure and so far so good, but will keep my fingers crossed just in case....

Yipee its Paint Party Friday, but am afraid most of what am showing is Work in Progress.

This first piece is part of my Art Homework and is nowhere near finished, loads to do on it and never enough time, but hope to get it completed by Wednesday for the next class.

You saw some of this piece (a stretched canvas 10 x 12 inches) last week, but am steadily making progress with it.  Not too much left to do on this one.

The sketch was done in pencil and a Whisper pen whilst I was watching TV...........yep am still trying to draw men.........lol     Now I know you won't probably guess who it is because its not a  good likeness, but would love to read your guesses.

Hope you all have a great Bank Holiday and lets hope the weather is fine and sunny.  Thank you for popping by and all your great support with my Art Adventures.  Will see you all soon, take care, Hugs Annette x

Lovely work, as always! But I have no idea who your *Man* is - I dodn't think he has been on TV here! Happy PPF, Valerie

Cynthia Schelzig said...

I especially like the woman on the beach chairs...I have painted them many times in my sketch books..they look great!

Hi Netty, Hope Mr Blogger works today. I like the woman on the beach chairs too! Have a good weekend. Kathleen x

kayc said...

Yippee - it worked. x

Sunshineshelle said...

It's all good, sometimes it's better if it doesn't look 'exactly' like the dude you are drawing... who is it, I watch bugger all TV, so I know I'll be wrong but it looks like Matt Smith from Dr Who... I'm wrong aren't I... BUT PLEASE LET ME KNOW... I love these teases :) whoever he is, he's pretty cute!

mustavcoffee said...

Hi Annette, You're growing as an artist all the time, it's so nice to be going along with you:0) Lovely painting, the texture on this one's a real feature, love her face, have fun :0) xxx

mustavcoffee said...

Sorry, I meant the larger painting, love the deckchair lady and pencil drawings too! :0) xxx

McCrafty's Cards said...

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Fantastic, you're really talented.

Artyjen said...

My guess is Matt Smith the current Doctor Who!
That is if this answer will post at all!!! LOL
xoxo Sioux
P.S. I see Sunshineshelle thinks so too! HOL

Gerri Herbst said...

Oh Netty,
so glad I can comment today. I love your first work in progress painting. It has such a Victorian lazy summer day feel. It will be in the 90s F today, so I wish I could be that darling lady lounging around. take care and wonderful work this week. take care dearie, gerri

Zoechaos said...

Well i do not watch the current Dr. Who but as soon as I saw your drawing thats who he reminded me off and seems to be the general consensus. Just goes to show you are a much better artist than you admit.

Your girl on a deck chair is lovely reminds me of Monet! XOXO Zoe

Pointy Pix said...

AH, I wondered why I wasn't able to leave comments the other day!! I just thought my android tab was playing up!

Did you change your banner? It looks lovely (or am I that unobservant I just never noticed it before!)

I am guessing that the man is the new Dr Who guy - I don't know his name and don't watch the programme but have the ads for it and he looks like you've drawn!

Your work in progress is coming along nicely.

wednesday said...

I am guessing your man is the new Dr. Who, who's name I don't know.

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

Great pieces Netty, how you are growing in your art, o wish I could draw. Fabulous . Tracy x

Ricardo Miñana said...

Beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing.

I know Firefox and tell me.

wish you a happy weekend.
a kiss.

JeanFB said...

Netty, I am just "wowed" week after week with your paintings. So beautiful! I can't wait to see that top one when you are finished (it looks beautiful right now as it is!). Good luck with Blogger, and have a wonderful weekend! :)

massofhair said...

Your work is so very inspiring Netty. Great to see your making so much progress. Like your style, especially the first painting of the lounging lady.
Got to be Matt Smith, you have captured his eyes so brilliantly. Do hope i am right :-)

1CardCreator said...

I don't know who "Who" is, but I do know you have a lovely talent! All of your pieces are inspiring and I must say it again, you really have a talent for the eyes, they are always so dreamy!

Doreen said...

Three absolutely stunning pieces of art Annette. I think it is the current Dr Who.xxx

Candy C said...

Oh my gosh, Nettie! They are beautiful! I think it is so neat that you went outside of your comfort zone and bit and just look at what you're creating! I'm so impressed by you!!! <3 Candy

Terry said...

I did not care for Firefox, it worked, but I like my old address/toolbar set up! I did what you said about unchecking the sign in. Now my "Follow Me" button is gone and all the followers avatars! Blogger is so bad! This is beautiful my friend. Love your paintings! Have a great weekend!

Fliss said...

Netty I'm fairly sure your sketch is Matt Smith as I took one look and thought of him so assuming I'm right, you're rather good at your sketching.
Lovely to see your works in progress too.
Also, I've had Firefox since I started blogging and have been absolutely fine (apart from a hiccup today which has nicked the followers bit on my side bar)
Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx

La Abela said...

She looks so relaxed that girl in the hammock ... is what I like. Saludos

Sophia said...

Nothing wrong with WIP's. Mine are too, as many tend to be. :)

Very nice job. I'm seriously impressed and really looking forward to seeing your pieces completed. I really like that first one.

Lori said...

Wow, Netty, very nice work! Really coming along nicely with the paintings! As for the man, haven't a clue, but to me is reminiscent of Adam Lambert with toned down hair. lol.

Suze Bain said...

I think it's Dr Who and is that Mrs Tiddlemouse in the second one. Your first painting is absolutely stunning. xx

Brenda Brown said...

More gorgeous art to see Annette, love all the pieces. I didn't recognise your 'man' but if it is Dr Who I wouldn't have known anyway - never seen him before.
I am just catching up because of the blogger problems this week and because I have been into some projects that I need to get done.
Enjoy your weekend.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Carolyn said...

Good morning, Annette. Your Paint Friday is a fun day for many and you are progressing well. My favorite this week is the first one noted as "work in progress." Such talent!

Carolyn

Heidi said...

peggy gatto said...

I like them all, but truly love the lady in the chaise. Something so peaceful and dreamy to me.

Beverly Gotthardt said...

I like how you're going with the faded oval in your pieces. All great, you never give yourself enough credit for your talent, I guess I'm going to have to give you clapping lessons.

Paula said...

great art work...wish I was brave enough to share mine, may be one day.
I think the man could be the new Doctor Who but I do hope you wont be offended if its not right.Have a good bank holiday weekend!

Daniele said...

Marion said...

Phoenix Peacock said...

You've been busy! Happy Painting

Tammie said...

so lovely to see each of your pieces. Looks like you are having fun. I mostly use Firefox and have had no trouble leaving comments, so hopefully you are ok now.

Patti J said...

Hi Netty, love your project, as always - it's so much fun coming here to see what you've done next! If anyone is still having blogger issues, clear your cache and cookies, and history. Should fix everthing right up!

Terri Kahrs said...

Nettie, I seriously think that you'll be very happy with Firefox. I've tried using other browsers, and it's my first choice. Your new pieces are lovely! Hope you have a very happy weekend! Hugs, Terri xoxoxo

Gloria said...

All your pieces are just awesome Netty. Great work. Happy PPF!

NatashaMay said...

Love seeing work in progress. :) I'm thinking the guy is that Patterson dude from the twilight saga. :) Just a guess. :)

Pam Tucker said...

I love ALL of your works in progress. It's fun watching them develop! I especially love the second one with the girl's face and all the texture! Great work, Netty! I hope you'll continue to show these until they are finished. :)

Christine said...

nice work this week Netty and he's very handsome btw.

Jennie Atkinson said...

Lovely work Annette - love the lady on the deckchair.

WrightStuff said...

I'm with the others - it's The Doctor!

Deck chair lady looks incredible!

Pointy Pix said...

hi again, ACEO stands for artist cards, editions and originals and they're artist trading cards which have to measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches. i only discovered tham a while ago because i also kept coming across the word on other blogs!

florenceandfreddie said...

Super pieces Annette.
Have a great weekend.
Regards Florence.

BahamaDawn said...

beautiful work!! i especially love the softness in the first painting! Happy PPF!

Dolly Daydreams said...

Beautiful work Anette be it in progress or not . I do believe you are going from strength to strength with your art. Don't watch Tv so no clue as to who it is . Have a great weekend.

Marie

Wendy said...

El retrato es una técnica muy dificil, me admira que te atrevas con el :D.
Besos.

Barbara Rosenzweig said...

What a great start to the woman on the sling chair. I'd love to see it when you finish it. Very soothing and restful!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Barb

Becca said...

Love your work here Annette! Wow, I must keep practicing! :-)

Her Speak said...

Don't be scared of works in progress--seeing the process is so important! :) You're on a kickin' track, you'll get it finished! Happy PPF!

Cindy Adkins said...

Testing Blogger

Terrie said...

Okay, it appears to work so I'm going for it. You were productive this week and I'm loving the beach chair gals - can't wait to see the finished product. happy PPF

Julie said...

Lovely paintings! Happy PPF!

Kristin Dudish said...

Kristin

Dawn said...

I am using google and had no problems since the biggi think that affected every one. The deck chair piece is so dreamy love this

love Dawn xx

Faye said...

Netty, your work gets better and better. The woman on the beach chair is just fantastic. And congrats for doing a man drawing. I just can't do one.

Heather said...

hmmm? do tell who the man is...
I LOVE the woman in the chairs...i know it's a wip you say, but i have a feelingit's going to be just beautiful...you are off to a beautiful start! I know blogger is so frustrating....happy PPF

Dawn B. said...

I can't even draw a stick man let alone a real one.. This is fantastic. You are so talented..Great job.

Carola Bartz said...

Again, three very different paintings. I like your variety. I have no idea who "your" man is which might be because I don't watch TV.

Terrie said...

i love seeing other people share their WIP - it's so instructive to beginners like me. Seeing only finished complex works is so intimidating. i can't wait to see how the lawn chair lady turns out - it's such a gorgeous start.

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Love all the variety to your work- but I have no idea who the guy is....I must confess that I'm not the best person to ask, as I don't watch much TV.....still, I really enjoyed these- you always manage to get so much done- I BOW o you and I must ask, is it your lovely new Hoover that gives the extra time?
(running and ducking ;))
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

Roban Studio said...

Hi Netty! I like the woman on the beach chairs too! Can't wait to see it finished! I have been on Firefox and wasn't having any trouble with Blogger until I downloaded version 4 and then that's when all the trouble began. I don't like this new version of Firefox. But things seem to be okay now. Thanks for you sweet comments on my blog. :-) Hugs xo~ Rhonda

Terry said...

Netty, it was like taking a ride to get to the bottom of your blog comments! See your art/painting is amazing to collect this many comment. Beautiful my sweet friend! Have a great weekend and hopefully Blogger will be all better soon! What a real pain!

Anne said...

Great job on all you've been working on. It's only that they're works in progress. Just about everything I ever work on is.

Femmy said...

kay said...

Hugs, Linda

Carol DeMumbrum said...

Lovely work! Love the woman in the chair! Thanks for visiting my blog. Glad I joined the group!

Heather said...

You have been quite busy!! I adore that first watercolors. So soft and beautiful composition. Love it! I am not sure who the portrait is everyone seems to think it is Dr Who. I don't know Who Dr Who is??? I don't watch alot of TV now a days with working full time job at night and working for my husband and painting at night! All your piece are beautiful Netty just like you!

priti.lisa said...

I see the pretty man must be Dr.Who, although I am not sure 'who' he is. So much ambition this week, Annette, you are so talented! ♥♥

Mary Hysong said...

Love all of them Netty, but especially the lady in the lawn chair, she's coming along great. Thanks for stopping by my place, Happy PPF!

Susan Allan said...

Love your angel.
Is the man Tim Henman!
I doubt it, cos he's not on TV at the moment.
Could it be Dr Who's Matt Smith with the wrong hair??? His hair may be a bit more floppy, but I think it's doctor Who. What's my prize.

shedreamsofthesea said...

Lovely, dreamy pieces.

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

On Thursday I couldn´t comment either and clearing all files & cookies worked for me on Friday.
The lady is so elegant and subtle.

brendathour said...

I love seeing work in progress, and they are looking great!

INeedToColor said...

Beautiful! Happy PFF!

Andrea C said...

Wow Netty you are turning in to a little art diva x

Nicola said...

Wonderful pieces I love how in each piece you are trying something different. I find guys really hard to draw too but I'd have to agree with the others who suggested Matt Smith!!! I think it's great :0)

Annabelle said...

Netty is it Edward? Adoring all of your art work! Wonderful progress in everything you do, you inspire me....thanks!

Annabelle

Linda said...

I thought of Matt Smith as soon as I scrolled down to this post! It is him...isn't it?
