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)

they are each lovely to see
the middle one is really charming for me, the way she is looking over her shoulder and her eyes closed.

Wow I love these girls especially what ever will be will be...the movement is excellent....I can just feel the expression! I can almost feel her shunning someone with a quiet " whatever" under her breath!!
Well done!
