Fun and a new canvas started for WOYWW

I've had a bit of fun this week.
The theme for APR was Make me laugh
and so I did a silly picture
and an even sillier ditty to go with it.
If you want a laugh, have a look

Today is Wednesday and so 
I will show you my desk
actually desks today.

This is where I created my little piece
of fun.
I finally got to use my Inktense pencils
and they were fun but they don't really like 
the rougher texture of my watercolour paper.
I would recommend smooth paper for a better result.

These represent some of my blogger friends
but they are better seen here.

This is what I am currently working on.
No, not cleaning up the mess behind it,
the canvas!!
The mess will be there tomorrow
and the next day, and the next....

I have been wanting to paint these little beauties for so long
and now I have decided it's time to get back to some
serious painting.

I love doing all the quick little fun challenges and I will still do them
but in the background, I will be working on this.

I will share the journey,
warts and all (eek).

So, while I get cracking 
and mixing up paint,
hop on over to Julia's
see what's on the desks
all around the world
on this beautiful sunny day.


  1. Hi VonnyK,

    The pencils look great. Interesting that they don't really like the watercolor paper. Seems that my watercolor pencils are the same way!

    Can't wait to see your canvas in progress. Those fishies already are showing their personalities!

    Please visit - blog candy is announced!!

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs,, Kay #37

  2. Ohhh wow, can't wait to see the finished canvas.

  3. I can hardly wait to see the progress on the school of fish painting! I hope you show us as you go. :)

  4. I did a school of fish on silk once I wonder where it has got to, it was quite big as well...thanks for the prompt...looking forward to their progress.

  5. WOW Yvonne I love the canvas. Can't wait to see it finished.
    We had a fantastic die cutting workshop in my studio yesterday with REDANNE demonstrating and teaching us the art of this fabulous craft. So I know now what you are all talking about. Today I am looking at things on your desks with a more understanding eye. YIPPEE !
    You can see what happened on my blog

  6. I laughed so much at the ditty and drawings - I simply cannot think of a better way for bloggy friendship to be immortalised!!! Awesome :)
    Hugs, LLJ #74 xx

  7. Vonny, I live just over the road in Adelaide.When we next come to Victoria, I'd love to meet up with you three!!!
    I adore that ditty, and your cartoons are just GORGEOUS!!
    Thanks for the great comment on my blog. Love that beginning canvas.

  8. You don’t look in that much of a mess Vonny, so I wouldn’t worry.

    I’ve just been to have a closer look at the herd of cows and have to say, they are brilliant….and the verse. So bright and colourful and very funny too.
    The new work looks very interesting. I look forward to seeing its progress.

    Happy Crafting!

  9. Your canvas is looking good. We love the cow oic too.

  10. Oh, the fish already look amazing. And the cows are hilarious (going to have a closer look). Happy WOYWW!

  11. Now that is a journey I'm coming with you on - how clever you are and I just know already that I'm going to love it! Erm, do your blogging friends know about your representations?!!

  12. oh yay, you are back to painting the fishes, I have missed them! Can't wait to see you progress along! waving hi from the sandy beaches of Florida ;0

  13. I love the canvas can't wait to see the finished project have a great week.

  14. The mess can wait until tomorrow. The canvas is looking good. Bet it will be wonderful with colorful. dani#33

  15. Brilliant ditty and cartoon pics. Your fishy pic looks like a challenge - I have never worked on a large scale. Will love to see what you do. x Jo

  16. ohh those pics are great jenx 60

  18. Hi Vonny,
    Clearly, mad cows maintain a state of high mutual regard and great relaxation! I love the funny ditty about your blogger friends.
    Looking forward to the 'serious' canvas with its lovely lines and I imagine, beautiful deep sea colours.
    Thanks for your lovely comment. Lucky you weather-wise but then I'm no good in the heat - better being a southern belle. ;-)

  19. I thought your APR picture was brilliant but this fish canvas is going to be incredible. I actually thought of you today when I was at a Marine Aquarium and watching the wonderful fish & sea creatures there :0)
    This is where I was my wee boy LOVEs the 'big fishies' ;)

  20. That canvas is going to be wonderful when you get it painted. Can't wait to see it. #22

  21. Awesome cow painting Vonny and I love the little poem from the other page! Good luck with the painting. I will be following along. Vickie #38

  22. Love what you are doing, Vonny. The Inktense pencils are brilliant, aren't they. I haven't tried them on textured paper, and tend to use them on the really smooth card that I do my zentangle drawings on. Thanks for the tip, anyway! The fish drawing is awesome and I can't wait to see how you paint it. Beautiful work!

    Thanks for your visit, and lol at your comments ha ha!! I'll let you into a little secret. When we move, it's not just the lounge I shall be taking over. It's the whole house. Just don't tell my hubby!!!

    Happy WOYWW,

  23. I agree with your sentiments that the mess will be there tomorrow and the next day and the next... so why put cleaning it up on the to-do list? Creating is so much more fun! I love the big canvas and it will look super with the school of fish on it. It was great getting to see your desk this time too. It looks like a great place to play.

  24. Love the drawing or is it a painting? The fish are goin g to be fantastic, I am sure.
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  25. I can't wait to see the progress on the large(very large!) canvas. I love koi and wish I still lived where I could have a pond. I now have a beautiful cobalt blue male "King" beta. His name is George, and frequently makes a bubble nest.Thank you for your input on my blog about the Twinkling H2O's.

  26. love what you are doing. I have not tried the Inktense Pencils myself. It will be interesting to see the finished Art piece.
    I haven't joined in WOYWW this week as I took the little people out while the weather was good.



I really love getting comments but due to a high amount of spam I had to take the anonymous user off of the comments. Sorry to those who can't leave a comment.
Thanks, Von.
