PAINT PARTY FRIDAY...................

Hi,  I first want to thank Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday and all the wonderful artist's works I get to see, who give me so much support and encouragement, thank you so very much.
Today I have Two Works in Progress and One Completed and much detested painting The Harvest.........which I will show you last, coward that I am.............lol

This an Acrylic Painting of a lady am calling Marianne which I started yesterday, but still have a lot of work to do on her as you can see.

This is as far as I've got with my large canvas in Acrylics, again a lot of work left to do on it.

Here last of all is the Acrylic Painting of The Harvest which is my long overdue Art Homework piece.  I listened to all your advice and acted on it.  I have to admit it looks better than it did, but am still not at all keen on it.  My Art Teacher liked it, but then its more her sort of picture than mine.  Still its all part of the learning process isn't it.........sob sob.

Unfortunately I will not be able to take part next week as we are away from mid-week in the Cotswolds,  I hope the weather improves as its not been at all nice this week.  Thank you all so very much for supporting me in this Art Adventure and will hopefully see you all on Monday for Summer of Colour as I think I have made something that will make you smile........  Take care and have a great weekend, Hugs Annette x

Love your paintings, the long haired Marianne is lovely! Wish I looked like that, perhaps someone would paint mt! How nice to be going to the Cotswolds, but a shame to miss PPF! Hugs, Valerie

Oh Netty your Marianne lady is wonderful!! You are getting so good, this is stunning, can't wait to see what she's like when all done.
Have a great time in the Cotswolds. The weather certainly can do with improving, up here it has been very miserable too but today doesn't look too bad.

Jan said...

You obviously have such a natural talent for painting Netty. Marianne is so pretty and your harvest painting looks like a Van Gogh.
Have a good holiday... hope the sun shines for you. Jan x

Terrie said...

I like your changed harvest painting. And tackling painting faces is something I admire since I'm so incapable of that - your starts look fab and I can't wait to see them progress.

I wonder what you will see on vacation to inspire your next paintings?

Marlene said...

Good Morning Annette, Marianne is gorgeous. I really like the harvest painting and think you did a terrific job on it. Have fun on your vacation.

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Marianne is coming along beautifully! And I really like the progress you've made with your large canvas. Lastly, I have to admit that I really like your harvest- you've a great job with the composition and making those colors sing!
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

Hi Netty. Your latest painting is going to be fab. Her necklace looks three dimensional!! Wow. The Harvesters is wonderful I can see why your teacher liked it. Have a great holiday! Cheers ~ Rhonda :-)

SHERI C said...

Enjoy seeing all the works you are busy with. Even though you are not happy with THE HARVEST, you still learn from the process so kudos for you for hanging in there and continuing at it. HAPPY PPF!

WrightStuff said...

Nettie - the weather forecast is much better next week!

Does Marianne have a beau called Robin I wonder? She's very pretty.

Janet said...

We are always our own worst critics. I like all the paintings you've shown here but I also understand if the Harvest isn't your kind of painting, no matter what we say you won't like it. I've been there! And perhaps months from now you'll look at it again and love it.

Marianne is sooo lovely! Such a quiet stillness about her. Your large canvas is coming along wonderfully - I love the colors!! And I think Harvest is fantastic - such richness!

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

Netty ~ love your work ~ your style ~ your creativity ~ isn't funny how an art teacher impacts us and yet we do learn and then go on to do our own style ~ being true to ourselves ~ which what I am trying to do ~

Thanks for your comments and support on my blog ~ happy weekend ~ CArol (artmusedog)

Pointy Pix said...

You're always working on so many things at once Netty!! I especially like the second painting - the colours are lovely. Hope you have a great holiday in the Cotswolds and I'd love to see a photo blog of your trip when you get back as we plan to travel a lot in the UK and Ireland from now on!

EVA said...

These are looking great! I think Harvest turned out very well!

Catherine... said...

Hi Netty, love the paintings...lucky girl the Cotswolds...fingers crossed that the weather improves...we are having dreadful weather here too....Have a lovely holiday....

Elisa said...

Annette, I love Marianne a lot.. she is so pretty and very unique.. your wip paintings are going very well.. if you are stuck sometimes, might be helpful to just rest and take some artistic walks.. helps clear the perspective. If you don't have anything to remove then that means the work is complete:) Enjoy your weekend!

coops said...

For a second, I thought the first piece was mixed media... I know you've only just begun but already it is looking 3 dimensional! Happy PPF! Enjoy your travelling!

Kristin Dudish said...

Marianne is a beauty... I think she is wonderful already and can't wait to see how she ends up :)

I will definitely miss you at PPF next week, but I'm so glad you'll be off having fun!

Gerri Herbst said...

dearest Netty,
Such wonderful painting this week...I do love the harvest, I guess its more my style. Adore your lovely ladies too. Hope the weather improves for you ...it will be over 100 degrees again for us...very unusual. take care, gerri

Beverly Gotthardt said...

Your first one looks like Maid Marion from Robin Hood, your 3rd is very Van Gogh, not sure about the 2nd one. You are wonderful with faces. Hope your vacation is Super, I think you'd rather have your weather than 104 we have here.

Giggles said...

Marriane is wonderful...love her hair! The others are coming along too! I believe art is such a part of your soul... you need to do what you love! Thanks for sharing! Happy ppf! I agree with Janet...

Hugs Giggles

Dawn said...

I haven't played for a couple of weeks and I have missed it lots.

Love the new painting your working on looks very promising ;0) I think I kind of know what you mean about the other. I think it is painted very well but not my kind of art on the wall at home. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try some of this even if it's only to learn what you do & don't like painting and any painting has got to be good practice surly ;0)

Now you have a fabby break as it is suppose to be hot this week yay see you soon hun Dxx

Donna said...

Hi Netty, loving your Paintings, they are all so wonderful, and so glad you are enjoying it. Have a fabby time in the Cotswolds!
Hugs, Donna x

Carolyn said...

Marianne is so beautiful. You definitely have a talent and should continue on whether it is Paint Friday or not.

I liked your harvest painting from the beginning and still like it, Annette.

A Dancing Mango said...

Each piece is beautiful Netty.
I wish I would have known about this party!
When does it end?

Chris said...

Gorgeous paintings Netty and I love how you finished up the reapers, really gorgeous. Hugs, Chris x

Nan said...

Hi Netty..I'm really enjoying seeing your progress on your painting every week. I like the blue piece in progress so much.
:) Nan Have a great trip!

JeanFB said...

Beautiful pieces, Netty! Hope you're having a great time on vacation!

Dolly Daydreams said...

Beautiful works finished or not am so happy to be along to join your journey. Will you be taking your paint brushes to the Cotswold's i bet there is a plethora of beautiful things to be inspired by there. Have fun

Maybe you just don't like the Harvest one because the subject doesn't appeal to you, because it looks well done to me. I like it. Maryanne is already looking good, too!

Susan Allan said...

You have been busy Netty.
'The Harvest' looks like one of the Impressionist's paintings...looks very expensive. all your work is lovely....what a talent!!!!!!!!!!
Love from Sue xx

I can't make Paint Party Friday....I just can't get myself going.

Sue xx

Susan Allan said...

Love all your paintings Netty! It's so nice to see what you paint, and how your style changes.

Rachelle said...

These are so beautiful Netty! I love looking at your wonderful art!

creatingme said...

So much wonderful artwork everywhere on your blog!

Andrea C said...

Your art is getting better every single week x

CuddlyBunny said...

Netty, I know I've said it before, but repetition is needed: You are a fantastic painter!

FANTASTIC!

Phoenix Peacock said...

Enjoy your trip!!! I love how busy you've been artistically. and all art students make art their teachers want. I think even though you might not like the piece creating outside of your usual approach helps you figure out how to incorporate new approaches into your style so that you don't go stagnant!

angelself said...

Lovely work =) Your large acrylics on canvas is intriguing...looking forward to seeing more. Have a good time away! Kathryn

Doreen said...

Your paintings Annette are stunning. Marianne is quite beautiful.xxx

Jenn Girl said...

Your painting the Harvest reminds me of Van Gogh. Maybe the colors or the brush strokes. Something. Anyways I think it's wonderful!
