POLLY PARROT & FRIENDS

What a variety this week, both painting and in 'real life'.  Ending with a few days reading a scary Thriller!!  Well they say variety is the spice of life, and that is me all over.  Jumping from one subject or action to another.  Strange in our household as hubby likes routine. He could live to a timetable. Not me, when I finished work I never wanted to live to the clock again. Opposites attract (well most of the time) ha ha.

Polly Parrot & Friends

Did this at the art club I belong to.  Many distractions and chats.  So, obviously, if you want to paint loose, talk away and you may have a happy unexpected fun painting.



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

  2. Yes variety is definitely something we can easily have and you always manage such with good results no matter what subject Polly. having the freedom to do what and when is great when you have a nice hubby keeping routine going around you.

  4. The parrots of magnificent… I have a Scarlet Macaw, and this reminds me of him… I LOVE it… Cool painting of the Lemur too, funny how he was hanging his tail over his back.

    1. I have had such fun painting these animals, it has been a change and challenging, but I couldn't resist them. Lovely to hear my art makes you smile, and that makes me feel really warm inside. Certainly not sticking to a timetable, never know what I will be doing each day. Thanks for commenting Debbie xxx
