woyww - Tiger Lilly and travel sketch


Back from a lovely long holiday.   My desk shows slow progress on a pink lily.

 While on holidays I always take a sketch book and small art kit to paint some of the amazing places we visit. 


The plan is to post a travel journal pic every couple of days.

Have a great woyww.

woyww - poppy


Anna Mason's tutorial this month was a pretty poppy.  Painted over 4 days grabbing a few solid hours over the weekend and after work.  

Packing up all my arty/crafty stuff as we are off on a holiday.
Have a fun woyww.

woyww - a leaf and pour


Started painting the leaf after a morning walk.  By the time I came back to add some finishing touches the leaf had curled and light was not so good at my desk.  


Also tried my hand at an acrylic dirty pour.  So many great you tube clips on how to do this type of very free flowing art.  Made a mess and learnt a big lesson.  I had left the canvas outside on top of a box and came back hours later to find a square piece of plastic had floated by and landed on my canvas.  I tried to carefully peel it off but it has still left an imprint. Can you spot it?

That is all for me this week.

woyww - busy hands

Missed woyww after a busy week with work and family stuff.  But, I did get time to finish the hand.  


Also started to paint simple things like feathers.  Odd numbers always look better.

Finally a big thank you to Diana for the wonderful ATC.  


How cool is the matching envelope:)

Have a crafty week.

woyww - a big hand


Painting a hand is the June tutorial from Anna Mason's online class.  


Stage 2 and it is definitely coming alive.    


But the most exciting things on my desk this week are the lovely ATC's and cards.  Starting on the left from Lisa M, Angela, Twiglet, Neet, LLJ, Marit and Wipso.  Thank you everyone they are stunning.

Happy WOYWW.

woyww - a collection of ATC's


My desk this week has a  lovely collection of ATC's and tags.  Starting on the left I have an ATC from Julia, tag from Sarah, followed by ATC from Shaz in Oz and finally a Fairy ATC from Shaz in the UK.

Thank you everyone, I am thrilled to add these to my woyww collection.


The finished kitty from last week.

Have a lovely week and I promise to visit but it will be a slow meander over the weekend.

woyww - kitty profile


An aerial view of the kitty I am painting for DD's friend. All credit to the original owner who posted a lovely pic on Pinterest.  I am adding fattening touches to recreate the kitty we know.  Half way through the painting and hope to have him finished by Friday. 

My desk has it's usual yucky water and dirty palette.  Wish I had more to show but it has been  busy week. 

Have a lovely woyww peek.
