Day Dreamer

Do you ever have days when you keep fiddling with a picture and you muddy it up. Well today I couldn't help but play with the previous posted picture "Steet Beat" and now it is getting really muddy. I know at some point I should have stoped but couldn't help myself.

My husband said to put the picture away for a while. What a great idea! So I started this little cutie. Isn't he gorgeous. He has so much expression in his eyes. Just captivating. This portrait is from a photo reference taken by a lovely friend Lyndal Alston who has lent me many photos. She is an amazing photographer. She has been working in many rural areas in outback Australia and has captured some amazing pictures of people and places. Lucky me I have been able to use these photos.

Lion Love

Here is an ink drawing that I have just completed. The reference is from Sam Mowska's photos from whilst he was in Africa. The reference was used with permission.

Street Beat

This, I think is now finished. I had a fabulous day off today and spoilt myself. I had me time at home. It was so nice having the house to myself to do what I wanted. Then I went and spent time with all my art buddies. I love you guys.

Street Beat WIP

HI, I am sorry that it has taken me so long to post something and that something isn't even finished yet. I have been very busy, I am working full time and the kids have been on school holidays. They have just gone back to school. I think that the break was so long, maybe that is how the teachers plan it, to wear the kids out from too much fun time. They have actually enjoyed getting back to school.

This picture, while still requiring finishing is from a little excursion my daughter and I took in to the city. I have previously painted another view of this street. It is one of my favourite alley ways in Melbourne.

I hope to capture the business of the street and the excitement and fun. Looking forward to another busy year ahead. I am studying again, as I have started working in another area which I am enjoying and at present working full time. I need to find some time to get some painting done. So I hope to keep you posted with the finished rpoduct of this painting soon.
