Hiya its Paint Party Friday

Hi, since returning from holiday this week, I haven't done very much painting or crafting, but would like to bring to the party 3 pieces - all different.............

This is a Mixed Media piece on a Canvas sheet from a Canvas Pad.......it was started before I went away and its now finished apart from some words.......Just not sure which quote I should use........so any suggestions will be very welcome please.
This is a sketch I did of Mario whom I met whilst on holiday in Portugal, he is a guitarist, he did quite a bit of posing before he played his guitar and its the first time I have sketched anyone live before and let me tell you its pretty scary to sketch  surreptitously.........my nerves were all ajar.........lol
This card is for the Happy Daze Challenge this month, its my attempt at Surrealism using 4 Stamps, although this isn't a requirement for the challenge as the theme is either Halloween or Christmas, but hopefully it will fit the bill however loosely................

Have so missed my blogging friends over at Paint Party Friday and their wonderful artwork and am looking forward to seeing all their inspirational pieces.  Thank you for supporting me in my artistic attempts, its very much appreciated.  Take care and have a lovely weekend, hugs Annette xx

PS, Nearly forgot to say that Craft Stamper Magazine - November Edition published my Fairy Bottletop....so thrilled

Awesome work...love the diversity of the pieces!

hastingshall2 said...

Netty, my dear, so glad you are back. I know you had a lovely time on your holiday. Your sketch of Mario is fantastic. I can't even imagine sketching from a live "model" surreptitiously or not. I love the card you made with the image of the woman done in colors and flowers. Beautiful. I guess that's a stamp. Faye

Anesha said...

Love the card! Great mix media piece and drawing as well. Hugs anesha

Carol Q said...

what a variety Netty. I know I'd try and think up something humerous for that top one but nothing's come to be yet. Well done to tackle a live drawing - having just started a drawing class I know how scary it is! Lovely final piece. Really must add that stamp to my collection. Never thought it would look so good with spiders though!

Carol said...

All three are nicely done!!! Love that first one the best :)

NatashaMay said...

You did a great job on all free. There's certainly a fifesta felling to them. :)

NatashaMay said...

Yeah. That would be "fiesta feeling" :)

coops said...

xx coops xx

art2cee2 said...

The work this week is just wonderful. I love the portrait. I agree it is kind of intimidating to sketch live but it came out terrific!

Auroran Lauriel said...

Hi Netty :)

Such a beautiful mixed media piece. I love the colors and the arrangement on the canvas. Are the chandeliers painted? I love this piece--it's gorgeous.

Great sketch too--the expression is so gentle.

The card is beautiful--Great Quote!

Janet said...

What wonderful creations. Sketching someone in person must have been scary....at least it would be for me.

Brenda Brown said...

Hi Annette, love your pieces you have posted the surrealist piece really captured my attention with the little spiders in it.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday.
Have a great weekend.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

wednesday said...

I've never been able to sketch people while they are aware of me. Too nerve wracking! But I admire anyone who can do it.

That new card is so airy and lovely. Glad you had a nice time on your holiday.

Hi Netty! I agree it can be unsettling to draw people surreptitiously! Sometimes when I am listening to a talk and I am sleepy, I draw the speaker and the people around me! Patsy from
