Hi, have scheduled this as have to go to the Opticians early to pick up my new glasses, but will be back later.
I think I have finished Pandora now...........hmmmm......still not sure but have hung it up anyway. The conversation last week at Paint Party Friday went along the lines of whether we varnished our pictures or not......To be honest I cover mine with Modge Podge Gloss, its cheap and does the job and as they are for my amusement only, I don't think it really matters, does it?
Hope you can see the small changes that have been made, the parts that look like sludge on the top part of her dress is really gold paint, but it refuses to be photographed, such a nuisance as the gold reflects beautifully.
.........also must thank Victoria Pettella who is a fabulous artist. Victoria gave me lots of terrific tips with this painting and am most grateful. Her blog is called The Dreaming Palette and her paintings are fantastic. http://studiovictoria.blogspot.com
This little Christmas Robin is called Robbie who is not really very happy............aaaaaaahhhhh - guess what his mother knitted him for Christmas...........yep a bobble hat, whereas he really wanted a Red Sparkly Hat to match his new boots........... a page from my Sketch book, done with Watercolour Pencils, white gel pen and Stickles.
Have never drawn a bird before so another first for me.................may well be my last............lol
Will come and visit you all when I get back later in the day. Meanwhile I hope you visit the fab artists over at the Paint Party. Have a terrific weekend especially my American friends as its their Thanksgiving and take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette xx
