We are still house sitting for my parents at the moment while the work continues on our bathroom. I have managed to get back into some sort of routine with the kids and thought I would try some sketching today. I bought some ACEO cards (I think that's what you call them) I've done a few things before this size but thought I'd give it a real go this week while I"m not at my usual spot in my office. I also bought some gouche paint which I haven't used for years and plan to paint these through the week.
I want to experiment with accentuating some of my figurative ladies' curves.......
This pose was inspired by a Matisse sketch. I plan to paint it then I'll show you the sketch side by side so you can see there I got my inspiration from.
My favourite part of the face to paint is the eyes, I just can't stop painting those!! So I had to throw this one in there.
Ok, I don't know why but I felt like painting a green alien lady heheheh......I already started using the water colour paints on this one but plan to do lots more with pen as well!!
Lastly, I'm not sure about this one, it's my take on an abstract figure.....I will paint it though and persevere with it!
I guess the great thing about painting in this small size is that you can try all sorts of things as it's only in a small scale.
I also wanted to show you some little beauties that I have been looking after this week. They are such funny strange creatures. It's been nice collecting the eggs every day, you can really see the difference in the beautiful bright yellow yolks from the fresh eggs! I just have to make sure that my huge Malamute dog doesn't eat them!!! ;0)
This photo cracks me up!!! This chicken does not look impressed that I caught her on camera ;0)
I'm thinking that a chicken inspired painting might be on the cards with all these photos!!!
Hope you're all having a great weekend I'll be popping round soon!!! :0)
