Bitza week for WOYWW

This last week has been a bitsa week.
I've done bitsa this and bitsa that
but nothing much of anything at all.

Firstly for those who don't want to 
suffer through my ramblings
and multitude of photos,
here is my desk.
 Same old mess
but something is different
 Little Miss used my computer and
lost my Doctor Who desk top pic
(ooh the inhumanity)
but she redeemed herself by
creating an even better one.

How cool is that, now my Dalek has a friend!!

I've been playing with a few canvasses this week,
one I love, one is just plain nuts
and one is yuk (at the moment).
-The one I love-
My jelly fish have been appearing out of the 
ocean depths.


I've been trying to think of a good title
for when it's finished.
What do you think of 
Attack of the Jellygobbles??

-The one that's just plain nuts-
Mr Pelican is home
but far from finished.

Stupid here forgot to add white paint
to the white gloopy stuff.
It dries clear you see and of course
now he looks as though he's 
a dirty little grub, which of course he may be
especially if he is part of my mad family.

- The yuk one-

I'm learning tonal colour and so I have to start
with muddy (proper term for pookack) colours
and move up to brights.
I just can't get past those icky poo colours.
Ewww, makes me shudder just looking at it.
I tell you, how on earth am I supposed to get
glorious bright colours out of that poop.

I trust my teacher but this time I'm not so sure.

Well that's my week so far,
sorry for all the pictures and ramblings Julia.

Now why don't you hop across to
check out other desks around the world.

I bet they don't have poopy pookack


  1. Glad you got your Dr. Who back. Can't live without him (grin). Yes, I'm a HUGE fan, too.

    Love the pelican. Actually love the rocks he's sitting on. Happy WOYWW from # 2.

  2. Hi Vonny - your desk looks such a lovely place to play. The jellyfish is fantastic! Hope you and the dalek have a fab week. Chris # 15

  3. love your Dr Who pc! the jellyfish look a bit Who like too! Have a great week. Helen 9

  4. Clever little Miss making Mum a fab screensaver. Beautiful work on your desk, as usual and I never thought I would say this but I think I'm a little in love with jellyfish....but only the ones on canvas, the other kind scare the pants of me. I mean, a see- through creature, how weird is that.
    Happy WOYWWW

  5. I'm sure you'll figure out a way to make the colour pop just think of the poop as shading.... that sounds wrong to type out but I'm sure you will get it to work hugs Nikki 7

  6. I am LOVING your desk Vonny..especially the Dr Who wallpaper on your computer. I have the TARDIS on mine, and yes I am a huge Dr Who fan too, since I was 8 and I am not going to tell you how long ago that was lol! LOVE your art works..and your jellyfish, wonderful and great colours, just loving it all! Thanks for popping by earlier. Happy WOYWW. :-)

  7. Oh sorry Vonny..I just remembered as I get corrected on this ALL the time by other fans..DOCTOR Who not DR Who....please forgive me lol :-)

  8. Pookack... love it! Never heard that word before but will be using it for sure... I get pookack every time I delve into Tim Holz stamp pads... even your pookack versions turn out good... now that is something indeed! Annette #6

  9. Hi Vonny - and happy WOYWW. Love the blues jellyfish and the other two are just evolving - I've seen how your painting come to life and these will too. Cheers and have a super duper week RobynO#35

  10. LOL - are you stamping your feet as well?? Those aren't my favourite colours either...yellow and baby poo, hmmmmmm But I'm sure you'll rescue a triumph from the pooey ashes!
    Love the colours in Return from the Deep though!
    Hugs, LLJ 36 xx

  11. Ah this tells me your DD has been fiddling in areas of your computer that she should stay out off. I would seriously kill my daughter if she did that. LOL I so love your Jellyfish I call it Jellyfish Explosion but awesome anyway. Also love the makings of the bird in flight.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW

  12. Well they all look brilliant to me even unfinished and at the moment Mr Pelican has my vote - I like things a little kooky. Glad to hear that Dr Who has been regenerated on your computer, a girl's gotta get her priorities right! Happy WOYWW, Cindy #51

  13. The jelly fish are fab and I'm with you with avoiding icky poo colours even if they do have a proper name. Ends with the Dr. Who theme music!!!

  14. Vonny, you really make me laugh - you are so rude to yourself!!! Lol! I think all your art is amazing. I know that even the "yuk" one as you call it, will be redeemed and will come well up to scratch in your usual style.

    The jellyfish one is nothing short of awesome... I would love to hang that on my wall. It is so ethereal and the colours so beautiful... I love visiting our local aquarium and seeing the jellyfish. Amazing creatures.

    Your desk looks great - a real hive of industry, and what great light you have. As for your Doctor Who desktop wallpaper, great stuff! My hubby's a great fan, but I just have memories of hiding behind the sofa as a kid! The cybermen gave me nightmares for weeks. I did like Tom Baker as the doctor, though.

    Happy WOYWW,

  15. I absolutely love your Jelly Fish painting! Wow, how clever!! It is awesome!! Your obsession with Doctor Who makes me chuckle - I have never been in to that myself! My Nephews are obsessed with it though :0)

  16. These are great.Love your pelican. I am sure your 'icky poo' one will turn out fine in the end

  17. funny thing as gorgeous as the jellyfish painting is, I am really loving the colors so far in the birds in the bottom photo. :)

  18. Those jellyfish are beautiful! Actually, I love everything you showed this week.
    Happy WOYWW!

  19. Those jellyfish are amazingggg!

  20. Cool paintings...ALL of them! Mr. pelican looks like he got a bit messy painting his perch...ended up with the paint in his white feathers. ;) Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #82

  21. love the art work the jelly fish is absolutely amazing ..not sure i like your title sorry sound negative for something so pretty...never heard of pookack..but did make me LOL ... and I'm sure you will get past it but can see from your work why its not your thing !..... thanks for visiting yesterday, I am lucky the paints where a pressie a few years ago pity I cant use them properly hopefully the course will change that a little I didn't get to see anyone as planned so now on catch up..crafty hugs Andrea #1

  22. Hi Vonny, thanks for your amusing reply lol!! Buying black paper indeed... The whole point is that this project is being made entirely from recycled materials ROFL! As for your Dad's trousers, I had visions of Jake the Peg with numerous legs all different lengths! At least you only have to get two the same at any one time, as long as they are actually on the same pair of trousers!!! Your poor Dad...

  23. Hi Vonny, great post and I like your jelly fish canvas - love all those blues. The pelican might be my favourite because to my (untrained) eye he looks as though he is standing on a pile of books, and I love books :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #70

  24. Oh my word...I adore your jelly fish canvas Vonny. I'm speechless for words to describe just how fantastic I think it is. I'd love to see it in the flesh! ;D
    As for the poopydoop painting I have every faith in your ability that it too will be stunning.
    Unfortunately I can't say the same for Dr Who...I've just never been a fan. Not since I had to hide behind the sofa when the Daleks entered the programme. I had nightmares for months!
    Have a great week and hopefully one day I may come back with my desk for WOYWW.

  25. Ahhh! The jellyfish emerge!
    I can't help but love the pelican because of the loose, wild colors. I do love bright colors.
    And I have faith that you will bring the deep, bold colors forward from the tame background and the bird will emerge in glorious technicolor! :):)

  26. I am curious about Doctor Who cuz I have no idea what I'm missing! Yes, the jellyfish colors are amazing! I am sure you will be able to work on the others til you get to like them as well. happy WOYWW and thanks for the visit!


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.
