woyww - 2 little christmas roses




Two little hellebores painted over the past fortnight.  A short post for woyww as it has been a busy week with work and family activities.  I shouldn't complain about work as it funds the painting and craft.

Happy woyww and I promise to visit over the weekend.

woyww - flowers, knitting and a dissected pear


Wednesday's desk is a mix of things this week.  


 A wonderful photo of 2 pretty Christmas roses (Hellebors) from Angela's garden. Looking at how best to compose these sweet flowers before I start painting.  Thank you Angela for sharing this photo with me.


Last nights attempt at knitting a baby beanie is still lying on the desk.  It has been years since I knitted so I am starting with a basic no fail pattern.  




























Final pic is the completed dissected pear from last week.  All in all a productive week.

Visits to woyww desks will be a slow meander over the weekend.

woyww- painting a pear


Not a lot on the desk.  A print out of this month's tutorial, left over paper from last painting, water pots, brushes and paints.  Far too many interruptions today resulted in no decision being made about whether I paint the pear.    Will pop around and visit desks over the next couple of days to look for inspiration.  

Have a great woyww.

second attempt at an apple blossom


Finally finished the second attempt at the apple blossom.  
All credit to Anna Mason's tutorials.  I never get tired of painting.

woyww - quick cards and blossoms


A birds eye view of my desk with the bits and pieces necessary for card making.  Since I started painting flowers, card making is fairly simple.  Scan and print the painting onto heavy cardstock and mount on a card.  Easy peasy.

First layer on the apple blossom.  I gave the original away and decided to paint another one just for me.  

Have a great woyww.

Quietly splashing paint


A quiet Sunday afternoon has seen the completion of the amethyst.  Not a subject I will be rushing to paint again but very satisfying learning how to paint a different texture.

woyww - amethyst


Lots of interruptions this week means the amethyst is slowly crystallising!!  Hopefully the weekend will see it completed as I am over the half way mark.  Visits to other woyww desks will be slow and steady of the weekend.

Have a great week.
