The school holidays are over
and life is starting to return to normal
I did the weekend ink workshop
and took plenty of photos on my phone
but now I don't know how
to get them off the phone and onto the computer
(hey, I'm blonde).
However, I didn't finish everything on the weekend
so I went back today to finish off
and this time I brought my camera.
Here is my desk at home right now
I've just dumped all my bits on the little desk
and you can see a bit of my Charlie canvas.
I did two canvasses, one of Charlie parrot and
the other is an undersea canvas.
I had a bit of an accident with Charlie.
You use syringes to drop dots of ink onto the canvas
and when I went to drop just one drop of red ink around Charlies face
it got stuck and dummy here pressed hard to release it
and it went splurt all over him.
What a mess but luckily you can fix it.
Now that he is dry, I can go over the bad bits
and fix them up.
There are a few bits I want to change
and will do them over the next week.
The underwater scene is coming along nicely
but is still dripping wet and had to stay at the art place.
It's fascinating the way the ink does its own thing.
I have a few photos showing when the ink is first put on and how
it changes by itself.
The ink has just been dropped on and is still quite separate.
The ink is running away from the raised areas and swirling together.
This is where I left him. I can't wait to see how it ends up.
I pick him up tomorrow and then I will paint in his eyes.
I really love this way of painting, it's really scary
because you aren't in control but the effects are amazing.
I will put up more photos as I finish off the canvasses.
I would like to finish today with sending a huge load of hugs
to my dear friend Tracey Fletcher King
whom you may remember from
WOYWW ages ago.
Tracey has just found out she has
breast cancer and even though
the prognosis is good,
it is still really scary.
If you have time I'm sure she would appreciate
a visit and some hugs.
Now you've seen mine,
why not hop on over to
and see the other desks from around the world.
