I've been busy, busy
but not with art,
hence no post last week.
I have done a little in class
and today, so here is my progress so far.
You may remember my splodges
from a few weeks ago,
here they are.
Now don't tell me you still can't see the two lorikeets,
you really should get your glasses checked!!
Okay, for those of you who are not versed in
the art of splodges, here are the painted
Of course they are still in the very early stages.
I'm working on the eyes, beaks and feet
at the moment.
The paint is very loose, so that when I
glaze over the birds the colour will fill
in between the painted bits
and hopefully give it a three dimensional
look, fingers are crossed!
This photo will give you an idea of the size
of the canvas, it's 30" x 36", so not small.
My desk is the usual mess
with bits plonked everywhere.
I honestly don't know how I manage
to find the paint some days.
These are the faces so far,
I'm still tweeking them but happy
how they are turning out.
One bird is has just taken off and the other
is hanging onto a branch,
which I still haven't painted,
and is about to fly off.
I'm thinking of glazing bright red into
the background to represent
bottle brush flowers but I'm not sure if that
will detract from the birds.
Anyone have any suggestions???
Well, I'd better fly
(excuse the pun), you know the drill,
dinner to make,
animals kids to feed,
plus the pets.
Now you've seen mine why not
hop on over to
and see all the other desks around the world
this workdesk wednesday.
