Klimt and Goatley!! for Paint Party Friday

Hi, am pleased to say we have had a couple of days of sunshine....woo hoo, but the winds have been North Easterly.........boo hoo.

I took out a book from the library on the artist Klimt and found one of his paintings which wasn't too difficult to draw and paint as a starting point, before I attempt the more difficult paintings.

Acrylics on Watercolour Paper

Being in a playful mood from last week I then went on to create the ' The Road to Nowhere ' in my Art Journal.


Acrylic Paints, Black/White Pen and Palette Knife

Am still working on the new 'Walking in the Rain' but its painfully slow going as it demands so much concentration, am definitely not one of those painters who can just slap it on and get great results....oooh noooo, wish I was......

Hope you had a lovely Easter Break despite the weather and here's hoping we have a lovely Spring weekend ahead.  Am off to visit my eldest daughter and family on Sunday which is great.  Take care of yourselves and thank you so much for popping in to see me.  Hugs Annette xx

PS  I cannot believe there are over 100 followers on my new Art Blog (have only just noticed) thank all so very much for following and supporting me.  xx
