Paint party Friday and a bit of a catch up!

Wow!!! It's been so long since I sat down and blogged. I feel really bad for neglecting my blog and missing out on what my blog friends have been up to! I've been really busy with my 'job' (I still can't believe I'm actually getting paid to create) heheh! I've been updating my facebook with the odd photo of a work in progress and commissions etc but haven't had a chance to sit down and concentrate on my little old blog, so here I am!

I've worked on quite a few things since I last posted so I shall quickly share!

First up is this acrylic on water colour paper called 'Moth girl'! I was experimenting with a darker look to my work!



Next up is my burlesque beauty! I really love how she turned out! I really focused on the eyes and tried to create a glassy look to them!



I was asked last week if I could paint a commissioned piece of the singer Pink! I really loved working on this one as she is quite different to my normal work! I'm so happy with how she turned out and she is now already in her new home! She was painted in water colours on water colour paper!

This is just a little sketch for another idea I have bouncing around in my head! :0)

Last but not least I wanted to share some of the childrens work with you. I just finished up a portrait class with my year 6's and have been so impressed with the work they have all produced. I wanted them to create a portrait with emotion in it and we worked on mini works of art experimenting with eyes and mouths and how to create different expressions then we put it all together in a portrait!

Check out their wonderful work!













Sorry for the really long post I just wanted to share what has been keeping me away from blogland with you! :0)

I'll be blog hopping all weekend and hopefully catching up with you all! :0)

Welcome back - we missed you!! Funnily enough, I was just thinking about you the other day while I was visiting all the Sunday Sketchers. I thought I hadn't seen you about for a while!

I love your burlesque girl the most - you did a great job on the eyes.

No wonder you haven't had time to blog, you have been cranking out the great work. Love your student's portraits, they must love having you as a teacher.

Really beautiful paintings...all of them. I especially love those shiny green eyes.

I love your faces and in general the borderline Goth sort of aesthetic but i just can't handle the blood dripping from the eyes thing LOL prob why I didn't go into the 'helping professions'

Great new art! I love the eyes in your girls! Such feeling in them! And, the childrens art is amazing! All very talented! Take Care ;o)

I don't like dark, but your Burlesque girl is super cute and Pink is really wonderful. The kids really did a great job, too. I bet they had fun!
