This week I didn't get much art done. I'm working on a photobook for my mother's birthday, and I'm behind already, working against the clock to get it to her in time .... (I have the very annoying habit of always leaving things until the very last minute, and then starting it at a time that any reasonable person would say: "ah, no, I left it too late, can't do it anymore ...".
My boxes are still in various stages of progress, but the birdpainting is almost finished. It needs a few more tweeks here and there, and I might work on the eyes some more and add some embellishments in some places, but for the most part it's done.
Here's a picture of the whole canvas:
Here are some detailshots:
You can see here how Joyce used this technique in a fabulous way in her art journal (scroll down to the end of the post).
And Kristin is planning on using this technique in her Tuesday Tutorial Try-Out! So looking forward to what she (and others) will be creating :-)
I don't have much more for you, except another sketch in my art journal
and a doodle that I finished a while ago but didn't really like:
Linking this to Paint Party Friday. Don't forget to check out the other participating artists. It takes a while to get through the list, last week there were 124 !! participants. It's getting very popular!
Meanwhile, the Etsy-promotion is in full swing. Check out the different promotion-posts here, it's so interesting to see the different ways people feature the shops. This is also a gentle reminder for the people who have signed up and didn't start promoting yet. Don't be like me (well, in the case of the Etsy-promotion I'm up to schedule ☺) and leave it all till the last minute. The month will be over before you know it ....
Thanks so much for visiting here, I appreciate each and every one of you taking the time. Hope you're having a lovely day, and a wonderful relaxing weekend. ♥ ♥ ♥
