Paint Party Friday and Sunday sketches! Portraits! :0)

 Hi Guys, Well it's been a little while since I blogged, I have been busy painting but haven't had a chance to sit down and blog about them, so here is my collection that I have been working on lately. These 3 paintings are all in oil paints. I decided to pull them out again and have been having so much fun with them. I really love how vibrant they are. This first one is called 'Autumn' and I shall be adding her to my etsy shop when she is dry! Love this colour combo.

Next up is another oil on water colour paper, just a doodle really that turned out really nice I call this one 'What will be will be'........
 Last up is 'Rose' who I finished yesterday. She is in oils on canvas. I shall also be adding her to my shop when she is dry. I've been updating my etsy shop lately as I realised that I haven't added anything for a while and I have so many new pretties to show you.
I can't help but paint faces I am just drawn to them. :0)

On the job front I've finally received my paper work and I'm ready to go, I have already had a meeting with one of the teachers and hopefully start a new project with him next week. As well as those murals. Hopefully I'll have something to show you soon. My first project with the kids looks to be a landscape piece with the older children. I'm really looking forward to this as it's good excuse for me to work on a landscape which I normally shy away from so hopefully it'll be a challenge for me as well as the kids. Hope you are all having a great week and I look forward to getting round to you all to see what you've been up to! :0)

Purple lady cold day! :0) - Sunday Sketches!

Hi guys well it's the time of year I start to get jealous of all  your spring time talk!!! I feel like we are hurtling towards winter at the moment and it's been a really cold day today so stayed indoors and did some painting!

First up is a painting I did of this purple haired lady! I wish I could pull off a purple hair do ;0)
Next up is a design I made for a mural at the school where I'm going to be working, just waiting for the paperwork to come back so I can start which should hopefully be this week. This mural is for the preschool, they have asked me to paint over an existing tree. I decided to keep a tree as the focal point because the teachers use it throughout the year to pin the childrens work to such as caterpillars and butterflies they made in craft, flowers, blossoms in spring time and Autumn leaves at this time of the year (being Autumn down under). I made my tree a lot more whimsical and added in a background to give it more character but tried to stay simple at the same time. Can't wait to start it! :0)
Hope you've all had a great weekend and I look forward to seeing what you've been up to! :0)
