A Mish Mash for Paint Party Friday

Hi, its Paint Party Friday where loads of artists, whether beginners like me right up to professional artists who sell their work, all meet to chat about each others art.  So if you love art come right in and join the party.

Valerie Jael Tups very kindly gave me 2 triangle blank canvases, have never worked this shape before so it was definitely a challenge.

They are both Works in Progress, using  the ghosting  technique Nicks demonstrated at Gingersnaps this week, although I missed out some of the process as I have plans for these canvases, not sure what.....but am sure it will come to me............lol

This is as far as I've got with the sketch on a large canvas from last Friday, not very far I know, but am umming and aaahing about the colours to use..............yes am a great ummer and aaaher.  Its based on a few of Chagalls paintings rolled into one..........." who said this would be easy" ............." wrong"............lol

Thank you for popping in and supporting my adventures into art.  Have a great weekend, take care, hugs Annette x

the triangle canvasses are fab - I never knew you could even get them like that. I love how they look so far and am intrigued to learn more about the ghosting technique as it looks great.

I like the surreal aspect to your large canvas and look forward to seeing how it turns out when you've finished umming and aahing (I know that feeling!)
