Paint Party Friday - Work in Progress, The Color of Summer etc

Hi, have missed the last couple of Paint Party Fridays for various reasons and am glad to be able to show you a few bits have been working on.



Am very close to finishing this large canvas in watermixable oils, just some touching up to do and correcting the errors. Then have to leave it for 6 months before it can be varnished.  This is rather different to the small canvas I did of the same subject which was done in Acrylics a while ago 'Walking in the Rain'.

The Summer of Color is in its third week and am still making the birds using the colors chosen by the majority and then there is a another fun one using the colors of Week 2 below.



The following is a page from my Ideas Sketch Book where stamps and my artwork are combined, this has been shown before on my other blog on Sunday, its called Beyond the Blue Horizon



Thank you for taking the time to pop in and hope you have a lovely weekend.
Take care of yourself,  Hugs Annette x
