|Aren't these Cinderella's slippers?|
|Victorian Arcade with verandah and Santa's hut. He must have gone for lunch.|
|This one speaks for itself and it is frightening how so many species are in crisis. Using mixed media like this was inspired by Lorraine Brown - do check out her work which is brilliant and innovative|
|Monkey Puzzle! What shall I eat first?|
|Final flourish - Pretty Polly Parrot in Brusho.|
Problem is, what on earth is going to inspire me next? Nothing in the pipeline. Perhaps I may read a book, tidy the garden, go for walks, do some baking ................... Well, whatever you are doing have a lovely autumnal weekend.
|Polly Parrot & Friends|
Yes, this Lemur's tail did wrap around like I have painted. I did an under painting of ultra first to establish the shadows then used a restricted palette to paint this lovely chap.
Blinking blogger - got another pic but can't download it where I want it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Will have to leave it for another day.
Most of my pics from Blackpool Zoo are now done, but not quite. Really been fun painting animals for a change. Got to think what to do when I have finished. What a wonderful hobby, so much variety to feed my eager arty brain.
Have a great week and take care..
Luv' from Polly xx
|This is a Happy Polly, not a proper Zentangle - all the shapes are smileys.|
|This is probably nearest to a true Zentangle|
|I would class this as a doodle.|
|This is my sketch of Chris, a friend who went with me. 10 mins sketch|
|I love this, it is my frriend Martine's, drawing of me.|
|The classical dimensions and basic shapes.|
|My pastel drawing of the tutor. His legs are faded out and not 5ft long!! 20 min sketch|
I learnt such a lot in 3 hrs. Steve Hersey was a very good teacher, and I thank him.
|This wasn't going very well so added some brown pen. These little fellows were in the childrens area.|
|Front and back view of different Penguins. I just wanted to mix the paint on the paper for these, except the black, which is ultra and burnt sienna and is part mixed in the palette and part on the paper.|
|To state the obvious this is a sea lion not a seal. Be blowed if I can remember the difference now to tell you!!!!!|
Have a wonderful weekend to one and all where ever you are.
|A rainbow poppy|
|Made up Victorian view across the Lake - very unhappy with this one|
|A pair of Victorian shoes|
|Queen Victoria. This is how I start a marathon painting day, just mixing colours on the paper.|
|A real vintage push chair. If you are interesting look at the picture larger, the work is intricate and amazing and her costume is hand made|
|Stephanie Guy came from her home a few miles away, just to see me!|
|And Stephanie painted one of her lovely miniatures, specially for me!|
|Me thoroughly engrossed.|
|Me not thoroughly engrossed.|
Thanks Lesley and Betty for taking these pics of me.
