Art Class Homework and 'Spring Fever' for Paint Party Friday

Hi, its Paint Party Friday time again.........woo hoo, I say woo hoo because I get to see some fabulous art which is always so very inspiring.  Today am showing you my Art Class Homework;  we were provided with a scenic picture to interpret how we liked, but know from experience my tutor doesn't really mean it, but took her at her word and did my own thing...............result...........was mmmmmmmmm not bad.............. so that was better than I expected.........lol

Painted in Acrylics

Yesterday evening I needed to create something for fun and to try out these new paints from Happy Daze which are called Anilinky Vodove Barvy water colours.  Found the colours were very intense and solid,  not suitable for watercolourists but brilliant for Journals.  Am calling this creature 'Spring Fever', it was painted in an old book, which is great fun to do.


Am going to be busy on my blog for the next couple of days as everything seems to be happening at once, so no doubt will be visiting you all many times and you will be sick of seeing me............

Take care and have a very happy day, hugs Annette x

Hi Nettie! I like your "interpretation" for your art homework very much...especially the flowers in the foreground. I've never heard of Anilinky Vodove Barvy watercolors. Indeed they are vibrant! Your book painting is quite interesting. Thanks for the tip on using a makeup pencil sharpener to sharpen my watercolor pencils. Have a great weekend! Happy PPF! :-)
