Hi there, how are you?
Week two done and dusted, woot! I’ve managed most days to upload something and so far I’m enjoying every minute of the challenge.
Day 8, (see above) Blackberry flowers are blooming everywhere and the bees love them. I painted this from a photo taken on my iPod.
Day 9, Ooops, move along nothing to see here.
Day 10, finally painted a poppy in flower (before the petals fell off)
Day 11, still painting poppies. It was such a lovely day and the flower had opened so beautifully I couldn’t resist painting it again this time looking down onto it showing all of the stamens.
Day 12, ferns. I love ferns and had taken a photo of some ages ago but did not know how to go about painting them; I always seem to get lost in all the little leaflets. This one has been simplified quite a bit but I really like the effect.
Day 13, fennel, this is painted from a skillshare by Jean Lurssen. She has a very informative Youtube channel so when I saw this class I had to give it a try.
I’m still trying to not only watch some skillshare classes but do the tutorials too, maybe I’ll learn more this way.
Day 14, I don’t know what this bird is called, there are maybe a dozen or so of them fluttering freely in the tropical house at the zoo. I took a photo of one of the more obliging birds and painted it when I got home. They are quite small, maybe sparrow size and very mischievous.
I’m having lots of fun participating in this challenge and even more fun checking out all of the glorious art works posted by other people.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
