Paint Party Friday Time

Hi, its Paint Party Friday time again..............woo hoo hosted by Kristin and Eva and attended by some fabulous artists from amateurs to professionals....................  its like going to about 100 Art Galleries from all over the world all from your armchair...........how brill is that..............


Today am showing 4 pages from my sketchbook all painted in watercolours.  Yep am still practising.....one day I will get it right............fingers crossed............

Yesterday at Art Class I was given two portraits to do, one of David Jason with his Inspector Frost face on and the other one, well I haven't a clue hmmmm will see how I get on.  Regarding my mass of flowers canvas, shown last Friday, my tutor said put it away for a month and then finish it off...........she was being very kind for once............lol

Oooh I nearly forgot the new Summer of Colour challenge is back in June, this time with Icecream Colours hosted by the lovely Kristin

Its bound to be a load of fun as we all had a great time last year.  You can find it on Facebook as well.

Have a great weekend and lets hope we get some sunshine.  Thank you for all your terrific support, take care, hugs Annette xx

PPF Hugs,

P.S. Can't wait til the end of the month to see how you finish your garden painting. I finally realised that it kind of reminds me of Klimt's (my favorite ;)) landscapes- you should check out his flower work if you're not familiar with it!

Carolyn Dube said...

These are wonderful! I was drawn to the painting of the 3 birds- they reminded me of a tree in my yard frequented by the local birds.

Anesha said...

Wonderful paintings, love the vibrant colours. Have a great weekend.

Astrid Maclean said...

Wonderful! Specially like the girl peeping out from behind her hair and the birds!

Sherry said...

Love the girls and your birds are brilliant!

I like your altered jigsaw pieces too a few posts down x

Terrie Purkey said...

Looks like you're having so much fun/growth in your class! Sometimes the growth is a scary thing isn't it? I scrolled back to see your big canvas of flowers and I REALLY like it! I like the colors and the wave of flowers and the straight leaves that are in front - good work!

hastingshall2 said...

Lovely watercolors, Netty. I specially like the girl with one eye showing. Now, I have to go back and review the last week's painting to see how the instructor's comment jibed with mine. Faye

Ginny said...

I love all of your watercolor paintings. I especially like the girl with the dark hair. Your work is all so good. Have a wonderful weekend.

Victoria said...

Wow...how fabulous and gorgeous Annette! I love them all..the girl with the dark hair..captivates me..makes me think of a special friend of mine..gogroeus eyes..mysterious and poetic!

And I love those vibrant birds...so very beautiful..wow..such stunning works..and fun to see them all as one..brilliant and inspiring post!

Debbie said...

Your paintings look great. My favorites are the portraits. They're beautifully expressive.

EVA said...

These pages are all looking great Annette! What a beautiful assortment. Especially like the red birds but all are wonderful!

Thanks for your comment - wish I'd been sipping cocktails on a warm beach but no - home in rainy weather - working on a paper and other paperwork.

scarlett clay said...

You're creating a wonderful body of work, I love them all but especially the lower left, the birds, I love how the bottom birds are looking up..doesn't look easy to get the lines right from that angle but you did! Thanks for sharing your awesome art!

Simona Cordara said...

Lovely pieces!!!

Tammie Lee said...

Annette, you're right about PPF feeling like we get to visit 100 galleries from the comfort of our homes! It's always so inspirational to see what others are working on. Your watercolors are great - i especially love the red birds. Have a great weekend Annette! xoxo

wednesday said...

Great job on the watercolors Netty, keep banging away at them.

I'm so glad to hear your instructor was nice about your flower painting. I was beginning to think all your digital friends were going to have to have a word.

Happy PPF!

Liz said...

Watercolour is such a challenge. great to see that you're having success and are persisting. I find the medium a trifle scary myself and definitely need more practise. You have my admiration for your achievements :D

Best wishes,
Liz

Cathy Bueti said...

Beautiful sketches Netty!! Love the girl face! Thanks for your PPF comment the other day on my post! :)
