Peggy Harris' Workshop 19, 20 & 21 Oct 2013
Day 2 and I was feeling optimistic that maybe the bunny would be a little easier to cope with........Hmmm all those well laid plans eh! I was nearing the end and went to put the dark blue shadow on the back of him to show off the moonlight..........of course too quickly I realised that the fur hadnt dried out and was wiped clean away with the float of watery dark blue which was slapped over his back and hindquarters........ I do try honest I do!! I blotted it off and reapplied the fur cause I didnt want a bald bunny and left it be till today (Fri 25th Oct) when I was certain that the paint had dried!! You cant float over wet paint........... he also got his fireflies tinted yellow and a few stars scattered in the sky.
Day 3 was supposed to be the easier of the 3 projects.......... Oh I got on great with the dragon flies, birds nest, eggs, feather and snail but the butterflies ........... couldnt believe what a mess I made of them. Anyway I worked on them again today and they do look a bit better or rather more lifelike..........
It was so lovely meeting up with the ladies from all over UK looking forward to seeing them come next April when we'll be painting with Maureen McNaughton!!
