Painting on Wood and Art Journal Journey

Hi, hope you enjoyed the weekend, its certainly turned a lot colder, so on go the warmer clothes and snuggles under the duvet with a good book..........yay.

Not so much to show you this week as this Wooden Icon (from Paper Artsy)  took me quite a while to paint.  Its in the style of Leonid Afremov, a favourite artist of mine.




Open


Closed
Its now been varnished and being left to dry

Art Journal Journey this month has the subject of 'Deep in the Forest' chosen by Sheila from Orange Esmeralda, there are already many fabulous entries to enjoy.  So here are a couple of mine..........


This is DCI (Detective Chief Inspector) Vera with her new recruit Barney solving a new case in the Forest  (worked in Oil Pastels).

Then went off on another loop as you do sometimes and created this................why I don't know except needed to practice and play........

Two separate pages joined together with Pic Monkey
They were both worked in Mechanical and Charcoal Pencils.  The left hand side, pink Stickles were added and the right hand side was drawn on a Gelli Plate background with touches of a white gel pen. Not sure what sort of animal he is but he looks kinda friendly.

The rest of my art time was taken up with making some adjustments to the painting for the Wedding Card last week, didn't like the chin/nose etc and also some sketching.  Am off now to view your blogs and see what my friends on Facebook have been up to in the Art World.

Will show these also at Paint Party Friday, hosted by Kristin and Eva.

Wishing you a lovely week, take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette x

Fabulous works of Art Annette I love them all, but I must say, when I first looked at the work with Vera on it, I thought I was going to read that you don't like her and you added the bear to eat her lol sorry he he

What a great arty post, I've been here a couple of times.
Love your bright colourful icon, it could be a Colourful Forest.
Your "Deep in the Forest" piece is such fun, I think they are coming out of the forest into the colourful hills, I wonder what they found inside the Forest.
And your drawings are just beautiful, both the sweet lady and the kindly looking creature.

Gloria said...

Dear,dear Netty, Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog. I love the folding screen you painted this week. Very colorful and artsy in design. The "face-off" is fun drawing, and the cat seems cheetah-like to me with the flatter face than a leopard.
The journal entry is intriguing. I have been watching DCI Barnaby for a while but will soon be out of episodes.
Have a wonderful week.
