Dabbling

Hi, its ages since have taken part in Paint Party Friday and have really missed it.  Mostly because I've been playing with designs and paints and not really getting anywhere even though it has been great fun.


The above is a Calla Lily I painted in Acrylics and then framed it with Photo Flexer (free digital programme)


Canvas 18 x 12 inches is drying on the easel.  The canvas has been painted over numerous times but have never liked the results.  This time painted various shades of blue, then used modelling paste over a stencil, its still not dry.  What will happen next have no idea............so its a wait and see jobby.


A page taken from my Sketch Book, background created with Pic Monkey (free digital programme), the lady on the left is an angel but using the background her wings got rather lost, still it was fun to do.

We went to the Castle Theatre in Wellingborough on Tuesday to have a coffee and popped upstairs to see the latest Art Exhibition, such a joy to see, paintings were by a local artist Brenda McKetty (Painter/Illustrator), mostly whimsical seaside scenes, but it was the colours she used that thrilled me, wonderful joyful colours which made me smile.

Hubby had his 'op Wednesday and arrived home at 10.15 pm, good to have him home safely.  He has to go again in February for more Stents but they will keep him in hospital this time as he has to have quite a few.

Playtime over as have to get my Christmas Heart Tags finished.  Thank you for dropping by and wishing you a lovely weekend, stay warm and safe.  Hugs Annette x

Good to sew you back netty. Glad all is going well for your husband and he recovers well before the next operation. I like your calla lilt-i had wine coloured ones for my wedding bouquet. I really really like the canvas with the blue and putty. The texture is gorgeous and it looks like a blue sky with wonderful wispy clouds!

Hi Netty! The canvas is terrific with a lot of texture. I wonder if you will do some kind of acrylic color wash over it? Can't wait to see what happens next.

It has literally taken me 10 minutes to try to leave a comment on your blog, thanks to the crappy little mobile screen i have to use now that I'm rarely home. This by way of explainjng why i have also gone off the ppf wagon. Sometimes just not possible. Love the calla!
