Paint Party Friday and Work in Progress

Hi, its Paint Party Friday and am falling way behind in my Artwork as have been very busy with so much other stuff, like having 12 birthday cards to make this month and a new home card........thats what happens when you have a large family like mine..........plus we are going away the end of this month so these all had to be made.........sob sob.

My first offering is a Pastiche of a painting I did a little while ago, in the style of Chagall in Watercolours.

This is as far as I have got with my large canvas and there is loads and loads still to do on it and some adjustments, so reckon this won't be finished for quite some time yet. So far it has been drawn in Charcoal, Texture Pasted in areas and some Acrylics.  Am so looking forward to seeing everyones artwork at the Paint Party.

Am late in posting today as we have been in Market Harborough all day, the weather was beautiful and managed to get some Art books while we were there, the most interesting of the books is called Symbolistic Art, wow what an eye opener that is..........  Hope you have all had a great day and thank you so much for supporting me through my Adventure into Art.  Take care and will catch up with you all very soon, have a great weekend.  Hugs Annette x

Hi Netty! Your Chagall inspired piece is gorgeous with all that color! And I'm loving that large canvas you've started. Very interested to see where you take it. Your new book sounds intriguing. I must look that up! Hugs to you!!

chris cozen said...

I think you did a great job on the "Chagall" inspired piece. I saw a lot of his work up close and personal in France last year and you could get lost in his backgrounds for all the hidden figures and drawings he put there.

Cynthia Schelzig said...

Love the play on Chagall....wonderful....as well as the man below with the gears...wow!

I so understand that large family/big commitments thing but I would never change a thing about it. My August and November are my packed months. Chagall work is stunning.

Yay! Chagall! And so beautiful. His artwork makes my heart sing and my imagination want to come out and play. :)

I'm loving the texture on your other painting--the subtle colors and varying thickness. Hmmmmm . . . this looks intriguing. I hope you and your family have a wonderful trip :)

These look wonderful! I love that you work on things in stages and that you don't mind taking a long time to finish your paintings. (Just like me!).

Happy PPF!

What a warm soul you are - it just radiates from your words and your work. Both works are beautiful ...the first is so rich, vibrant...it hums with life and your work in progress just hums with intensity right below the surface. Stunning work
