Paint Party Friday said why not show us your Muse !!!

Hi, its Paint Party Friday again....woo hoo.  Kristin and Eva asked about our Muse last week and had we thought about painting it..........well wasn't sure if I had one being a beginner.  But thought I would give it a go.....

Oh no...cannot believe how it turned out.......so far removed from the beautiful Goddess I had in mind...... Now this sort of Muse I can do without.............scary or what...........lol  Thank goodness it was only painted in my Art Journal and not on canvas.............Textures were created with shredded bank notes (because art supplies cost me loads of money) and Flowersoft........why Flowersoft you ask, well its a private joke between me and me as this stuff really gets up my nose just like this painting............


Finished my Art Homework (watercolours), didn't exactly turn out brilliantly but better than I thought it would.

Have just discovered a new blog hosted by Kristin, Summer of Colour (see my sidebar) which is all about colours and this week the colour is Blue.......all shades of Blue.  I painted the background with acrylics and added a digi fairy.  Am so pleased to take part in this blog as well.

Thank you again for all your terrific support and encouraging comments. Will be back to see all your wonderful creations.  Have a great weekend and take care, Hugs Annette x

Healing Woman said...

Your muse is another side of yourself-one you hadn't met yet. She looks playful to me and like a fun type of gal! Have fun with the watercolors. You have a great start.

Liette alias Pixelle said...

Pointy Pix said...

Wow - I've always been scared of clowns and your muse reminds me of the one in the Saw movies and the one in Stephen King's book It!!


I think your art homework turned out wonderfully - the beautiful blue and violets tones of the background seem perfectly in keeping with genteel ladies strolling in the summer!


The blue painting is brilliant - you've captured a wonderfully stormy sea with that little fairy precariously perched on the rocks -love it!

Lisa Somerville said...

Paint Party Friday is never a disappoinment! Had to LOL about your bank note use on your top piece! The finished watercolors turned out wonderfully!

EVA said...

LOL! Congratulations on trying to envision your Muse - I think perhaps its playing with you! Fun.

I love the blue piece. Very cool and the beach walk is beautiful.

laurie said...

i love them all,, I'm usually frightened of clowns,, I painted a goddess so I guess great minds think alike,,HPPF!

Gloria said...

I love them all too. The blue though really stands out for me. Love it. Happy PPF!

1CardCreator said...

Wow Annette, these are stunning! Love the lady in blue and the clown has so much expression!

SHERI C said...

My favorite this week is your work in BLUE! WOW! HAPPY PPF!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

Happy PPF!....wow, you sure are industrious with three projects for us today...all unique in their own way too. The last one looks like a blue dream come true!

Yvonne said...

They're beautiful, Annette! I especially love the Goddess!

Kristin said...

What wonderful work! I was instantly attracted to the texture in your first piece - and to find they were bank notes! What a great mind you have ;) Thank you too for playing along with The Summer of Color and sharing with us this beautiful piece - I LOVE the hybrid idea - it gets me thinking . . . Kristin xo

Faye said...

Annette, I'm not sure what a muse should look like, But I believe you have painted someone else's muse. A clown just does not fit you, even though the painting itself is fascinating. I love the beautiful blue background and the finished watercolor of the two ladies. You are so talented.

Plume said...

Netty don't be so hard on yourself. One day someone told me to "Let the negative critics about oneself to others". Your art is your journey and when on a journey I think the trip is greater than the destination, that perfection is not human and that exploration and mistakes helps us to grow and learn! Thank you Netty to help me remind myself of all that good advice from other people.

Kim B said...

Great work! Ladies my favorite, but do love the fairy and blues. Have a great day, Hugs, Kim

Ricardo Miñana said...

Love the sweet beach scene! Lovely piece for Blue.

Beverly Gotthardt said...

Your Muse looks a happy soul--she inspires you to create happy art, beautifully I might add.

MarleneMAZ said...

Wow! such a great range of styles you have Netty! love all the different pieces. Now you have to tell me where you get the shredded bank notes? lol!

Carrie Wachter~Martinez said...

Your muse looks fun! I really like the composition of the ladies...the softness adds such femininity. Very lovely!

Heidi said...

Leovi said...

Great texture in this sad muse. Beautiful watercolors, I love these colors.

Dolly Daydreams said...

Wow Annette your muse is something special. As for the other two pieces absolutely glorious, the one with the angel just reminds me of Lefkada the Island i went to last week the water is exactly the same colour !!

Have a great weekend.
Marie

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Wow, Netty- I LOVE how varied all these pieces are. Your muse is so creative- yes, a little scary, but isn't it true that our muses can be scary at times?
And your watercolor homework turned out so beautiful and dreamy- I LOVE paintings like this- I want to be there on that beach in those colors!
I'm off to check Kristin's color challenge...
Happy PPF (a day late ;))

Hi Netty
I like your ladies walking along. Sadly I wasn't able to join in at Paint Party Friday this week, but I hope to for next week. Your choice of music is very good!!

Have fun!

mariasangel said...

Happy PPF 2U2! Thanks for stopping by my maiden voyage post! love the texture in your muse painting, but i will take a few steps away from her--lol! LOVE your painting with the ladies walking on the beach!! The one with the fairy is very soothing and hypnotic!

Auroran Lauriel said...

Wow! You have such distinct styles represented in one post. Very cool--Does this show you have an adventurous spirit? Your clown face is fierce and I really like how you've used several different materials creatively. Shredded bank notes? Brilliant. I love the background texture--what did you use?

Your watercolor is beautiful. :) Is it for a class?

Thank you for visiting my blog! See you next week. :)
