Art Homework and Cards for Paint Party Friday

Hi, its time again for the best painting party ever......Paint Party Friday...... where we get to meet some fabulous artists and their creations thanks to Kristin and Eva our terrific hosts.


This is my latest Art Class Homework piece in Acrylics.  I was given an old Barclays Bank advertisement to copy.  When the other students saw what I had been given there was a lot of grimacing going on I can tell you.  Being fair minded I offered to swop with them but strangely enough nobody wanted to.............  This has to be the most difficult painting have ever done, so please be kind to me and don't judge too harshly as am sure when my tutor sees it there will be enough harsh comments to last me a lifetime.............lol


These Easter cards were made from an earlier water colour painting of mine and have now been received.  It gave me such a thrill to put my artwork onto cards.

Wishing you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter.  Take care of yourselves and will be seeing you soon.  Hugs Annette x

I like what you have done with the acrylics, though I have not seen the original advertisement. Oh to be hiking in a glacial environment...a very appealing piece of art:)
Well done, Netty...I don't think you will receive any harsh criticism.

Happy Easter Annette. I really love the texture of your rocks in the foreground of your picture and the figure is perfectly in proportion. Love it!
How did you get your artwork onto cards? I'd be interested to know. Congratulations of doing that.

Fantastic painting and wonderful Eastercards.
Happy Easter to you and yours.

Marjie Kemper said...

I can't imagine how difficult it must be to get the perspective or proportions straight on a painting like this. It looks wonderful to me! And what a great idea to print your art on cards. Fabulous!

Daniele said...

amazing work Netty, love the drama of the picture

Amazing work. It pops out at you and comes alive...like we're peeking out a window. Your Easter cards are lovely as well. Impressive artwork all the way around.

There is a lot going on in the image you were given to paint. You are doing a great job on it so far. Don't let that tutor get you down!

EVA said...

I think you did a fabulous job! Love how you captured the strata in the rock and the gorgeous hills.

Kokopelli said...

I LOVE the first painting. No harsh comment over here. But what do I know as a "newbie" painter. And isn't it fun to put your own artwork on cards. Just did that lately and the receiver was stunned and so happy. :-)

Linda R said...

Oh my sweet friend.. Your painting is beautiful.. I always love seeing your creations. And I also love you cards. Bravo...

Hugs, Linda

Pam Tucker said...

Netty, your painting is fabulous! I love the rock texture and the water! There is nothing to be harsh about. You do beautiful work, as always. And the cards turned out gorgeous. That's always fun to put your artwork on a card. :)Keep up the wonderful work! Hugs to you!!
