Feathers - A painting

Well I've finally finished my second large canvas that I started during Bloom True in October. You can see my other big painting here. This canvas hangs in my hallway, and its the first time I've really painted a piece of art to hang in my home. As you can see from the evolution below, the first feathers were there quite a while ago, either hanging from the top or the bottom.

spray paint

Inspired by the Daring Adventures in Paint class I’ve been taking, I picked up a few cans of spray paint today. Outside in the sunshine, I played on some of my on-the-go canvasas. All of these are still a long way from being finished, but I’m pretty in love with spray paint.

a mermaid from my sketchbook

These days I am trying to keep afloat in the Photoshop Elements class I am taking. It is a great class, but very technical and lots of info!
This week is also the end of the Daring Adventures in Paint class I have been taking. I've started three canvas's and I need to figure out my plan for them, and what direction I want them to go. '
I feel like I am closing in on my final layers in my 2nd big canvas that I started during the Bloom True class I took last year.
And when I have some spare time, I am still loving my Jane Davenport, I Heart Drawing class.

a teabag lady

For play this week I painted this little african lady on a teabag and did some messy stitching in her hair.
And just for fun, here she is in black and white.

The weather has been beautiful here, so I've been taking time to enjoy that. I've been battling with a flu. I've been painting one of my big canvas's from Bloom True, hoping to finish that up soon. Basically, just been busy.
Here is a little lady from my sketchbook.
