A Mish Mash for Paint Party Friday

Hi, its not been the best of days but looking on the bright side it can only get better............

Digital bits added to original watercolour and coloured graphite pencil painting

The sketch was influenced by Magritte and was huge fun to create.

It may not be great but the adventures in trying out different styles of Art and putting my own twist to it gives me a lot of joy.

Plus am showing an A4 page from my Journal to celebrate Spring

Spring into Action
Am at Art Class Friday morning and will catch up with you later.  Meanwhile have a great time visiting all the fab artists at Paint Party Friday, there is some awesome talent out there in blogland.

Thank you for visiting me, take care of yourselves and have a great weekend, hugs Annette xx

I love your apple man popping his head up and breaking through the ice. I bet the inhabitants of that town were terrified, although if they had seen he was an apple, they might have been relieved! Your journal page is so cheery, but the springy ballerinas and rabbits ready to spring! Thank you for your comments on my blog, Annette.

Zafaran said...

I am sure it must be great fun trying out different styles! I like Rene Magritte's surrealistic pics...

Wow the digital additions make the whole piece appear surreal. Love how the cracked ground extends from the painted neck so smoothly.

Its important to copy other artists - it's how we learn. It's a learning thing - Love your art this week-drawing with watercolor, digital additions and that lovely lively journal page. HPPF
