I'm sorry to say
the fish painting is still going.
We had a good look at it in class today
and decided it needed more
glazing to get the look of water right.
The glaze is still a little wet and I hope it will
calm down a bit more.
It's so scary when you put it on as it's really white
and I was sure I'd messed it up.
This was taken a bit earlier and
you can see how white it looked.
I still have to tone down the eyes,
they look like cartoons at the moment
and I will add more white in some areas to
make the ripples stand out more.
My desk this week was outside
and this is why
Apart from the fact that it's been
30 plus degrees this week,
|Don't you just love the bird poop on the chair, that's my magpie friend!|
I had to prepare a new canvas for class.
You can see my fan brushes with pots of
very watered down paint.
I use these to spatter the canvas
and boy did I make a mess, it went everywhere.
Yes, my glasses got the treatment as well.
Puts a whole new meaning to spots before your eyes!
Of course you can see exactly what
the painting is going to be,
what, you can't see it??
Well you're just not using your imagination,
there are two Lorikeets (small parrots),
one is flying off and the other is about to.
Now do you see it? I thought not.
You'll just have to wait until next week.
I drew the birds on in class and then really spattered
it but couldn't bring it home as it was too wet.
So, it's just going to have to be a Picasso
until next week!
That's all for me,
the little bird from last week
still looks exactly the same,
school holidays are a bummer.
Why not hop over to Julia's
and see what is on work desks
around the world,
this glorious wednesday,
