I have been madly working on
my jellyfish painting this week.
I'm entering an art show that I thought
was ages away and it turns out it's only a couple
of weeks away (oops).
The Jellies are closest to finished so they are going
in along with my finished bird painting.
My desk is full of inky goodies
with bottles of straight ink and some mixed with clear ink
to make it less dark. I use a paint brush to glaze areas
that I want darker so the jellies stand out more.
|I still can't get the turquoise to come out and it isn't bright blue, it's violet! Argh, cameras hate me!!|
I still have a bit of adjusting to do but you have to wait for
it to dry before doing the next layer, drives me nuts
and that's why I don't use oils anymore.
I also had some gooping fun with the bird I drew up last week
Still a long way to go but looking good so far.
My liposuction parrot (from last week) is looking really nice now
she's all inked up and raring to go...
Just need to do a head and foot transplant :)
Still some poocack to go into the background.
But ... and it's a bit but
the best thing has happened...
I need new taps for our upstairs bathrooms
because the water is coming from the taps instead
of the spouts and I saw the perfect taps.
What does this tap remind you of????
The clue is standing behind the tap..
But then I saw the name of the tap
Oh yeah, all is right in the world now!!!
Every time I turn on the shower I can yell
My hubbie's gonna go nuts (mwa ha ha).
Well, that's mine for this week,
now why don't you have a look at the other
desks around the world.
Just press here
to go to Julia's Stamping Ground.
There's some ink calling my name, time
to go and play.
