Ewegenie stared straight ahead not wanting to alarm her little lambs
but her senses were on high alert.
Gertrude was watching her, she just knew it.
Gertrude stood still as a statue, convinced Ewegenie couldn’t see her.
Unfortunately she held her breath for too long and passed out in the pasture;
Woken later by the bleats of victory from Ewegenie.
(Where am I going with this lol) Does anyone know what happened next?
A couple of people asked about cards of this painting. They are available in my Society6 shop.
p.s. I had to chop the top off the image for Society6. If I can find somewhere to scan it in I will swap the image. It’s way too big for my scanner.
A tad late today but I have a treat. A real gold nugget of an artist find. Check out Jose Trujillo on YouTube:
And he is great at giving art advice too. Follow him on YouTube for loads more art videos:
So inspired am I that I got my dusty oil paints out. Watch this space.
Happy creating! 🎨[Top]
X with a sewing machine
Tools from all around
Use your imagination
Rules out of the window
This seems to sum up the pearls of wisdom in the art books I’ve read recently.
One specific learning activity was to take a reference photo and mark on your paper the general shapes and turn it into something. I love that idea!
You could use any style, medium etc.
It sounds like a great learning tool to get out of doing the same thing over and over.
Happy creating! 🎨[Top]
Thanks to Susie Lindau I discovered it is World Poetry Day today. One must not pass that up.
Go read Susie’s great poem here and then please follow #WorldPoetryDay on Twitter. (There are some quite funny political ones (say no more ;)).
The mist through the trees matched the wonder in her heart.
Be brave and put a one line poem on Twitter.
Happy World Poetry Day![Top]
I just don’t know if there are enough pillows for a post March Break slumber 😉
Here’s some more:
It’s like Society6 know it’s after March Break because they are 20% off today.
p.s. March Break was fab. Beauty and the Beast is fantastic![Top]
Would it be fun to make a sheep collage out of food from the flyers you get through the door?
A new feature for a Monday. Would be fun if a few others joined in. Subject of your choice as long as you use the food flyers.
And then give your collage a name.
Sprouts in the country 😂
Happy collaging! 🎨[Top]
I can’t seem to give up eating chips for lent but it seems like an omen that I just happen to read about the cross technique at the beginning of lent. I can do that yay. Cheating a bit but hey ho.
This is a great book for tips about abstract art:
I noticed a couple of techniques I haven’t tried yet. The cross, the L shape and the triangle.
Until Easter I’ll experiment with the cross then move on to the L shape.
Here’s two I did last night watching the Leafs lose:
I love the overlap of color you get with pastels compared to painting.
Now imagine using other themes like sheep! You could have the details of the face in the middle of the cross area. Sounds ambitious. We’ll see.
Check out this amazing artwork by ZacherFinet:
This shape would look great in collage too, either completely abstract or a road between fields perhaps.
What would you draw in this shape?
I love red but there wasn’t enough contrast. You couldn’t make out the circles so I got out the pink. Very unusual color choice for me.
Shaking my virtual maracas in celebration that I didn’t ruin it as I so often do.
It is way more fun to start a few paintings at the same time and build up in layers. Have fun guessing which one you’ll finish first.
Tip: Use same color in different ways in different paintings and wait for it to dry before adding new colors. (I wasn’t doing that before, hence all the brown).
Which do you like best red or pink version? I promise not to cry 😜
Anyone tried layering? Happy creating! 🎨[Top]
