I'm doing an Easter Challenge..... I asked people to take me out of my comfort zone and suggest subjects for me to paint over the Easter Holidays, as I am not doing anything else.  Here is my next batch

Chicken - Debbie Nolan.  Guess what kind of egg I was eating.  Just for research you understand, for this painting.

Easter Bunny - Ngaire Magalotti - an Aussie friend on facebook.  Actually the orange in reality is really bright.  Transparent Orange

Farm Equipment - Pamela Williamson.  Far too tight painting this, wasn't happy with it at all

Gold Hill, Shaftesbury and the photograph is by Theresa Jones on PMP. - Idea from Sue Caton.    Supposed to be a drizzling and misty day. I am having trouble linking this to the photographer so apologise to her and will get it sorted as soon as I can.

Hat and gloves of the old fashioned Easter kind.  - Celeste Bergin.  Thanks for bringing back memories

Chicken - Dana Mallon.  A chicken mad lady suggested this one.  It is done in Brusho!

I do hope you are having a brilliant weekend and are not feeling too sick with eating loads of chocolate.


  1. Well done Polly, love the baby chick in the first one.. and I understand the research required… you had to do it… for your art.

  2. A busy Easter, dear Polly! You've painted so much and so well, subjects so different!!! I admire your patience, your tenacity and your great skill!

  3. Bravo Polly for meeting this challenge so brilliantly! Nice work! An yes I did eat too much chocolate but it seemed like a good idea at the time... :(

  4. So many great paintings, you can do it all , really well done Polly ! I know it's hard, sometimes you have to suffer eating chocolate and stuff for the sake of art :-))

  5. Polly - wow I am so impressed and I think I like the chocolate egg type better than the other (LOL)! Loved each one of these paintings. So glad you had a creative week-end. Take care and have a good week.

    1. Thanks you Debbie and everyone for commenting on my second part. I have a wonderful and stimulating few days. It's lovely of you to follow my progress xx
