I've done quite a bit
considering it's school holidays.
Here's a pic of the desk area right now
Just my glasses on the desk but
lots on my easels.
I had a scary but fun time
inking up the blue canvas
you can see my post on it
here, if you want a look,
and here is the one on the table
in quick stages
Gesso mixed with paint in a mid tone
Slop it anywhere on the canvas,
that bit's easy!
It will be two lorikeets and flowers
(ho hum, not again!).
This is the inky mess up close
It will be the jellyfish one
and I can see jellies in the background already.
Today in class I slopped brightly
coloured texture paste onto my
Talk about heart attack material.
I was hyperventilating and jumping around,
then next minute I'm holding my head.
It was not a good look for me or the painting.
This is before attacking it
here it is slopped and blopped.
I took the photo with my daggy phone
so the colours are not great.
It's really bright in real life which makes it
even more scary.
I'm doing a practise in tonal painting
so rather than copy the photo's colours
I'm replacing it with colours in the same
tones (well that's what it's meant to be).
It's soooo hard!!!
Goodness knows what this will end up like
but I'll push on regardless.
Why don't I just stick with what I know??
I must be mad!!
That's my nutter of a desk for this week
now why not pop over to
and see what the slightly more
sane people have on their desks this week.
