Goop, slops and inks for WOYWW

Wow, I can't believe two months have gone
by since I last posted, time flies.
I've been painting and gooping up a storm
and I'm currently working on 
six canvasses. 
Here is one room full of desks,
 There are five on the go in here,
one is hiding, that's the portrait of my girls.

 and one in here.  This is zombie bird, until I paint in the face.
There are lots of pics on the desk, that's where I put
things together to make ideas for canvasses.

These guys have all gone to new homes
and have left me with no stocks, hence the mad
painting frenzy going on.
My teacher invented a new technique which is 
called gesso soup.  I'm currently trying to learn
how to do a good gesso soup but since I'm a hopeless
cook, my soup isn't doing too well.

This background is gesso soup and I'm going to goop the bird,
then ink.  I was having all sorts of problems gooping
the birdies bum today.  Well, I have to say, it's no fun
putting a palette knife up where the sun don't shine!!

 My latest jellies have gesso soup coral.
I think that worked quite well, I just can't get 
a good photo.  It's really bright colours, honestly.

I'll keep it short and sweet this week,
mainly cos little miss has an orthodontics appointment
and I have to go (darn kids).

Now you've seen mine, have a look at some
other desks around the world at
