Back on the net for WOYWW

I think I must have held my 
mouth  wrong or said
something mean to my computer,
cos my internet has been playing up
big time, but all seems well now
and I can blog again.

I've been busy while I couldn't waste time
on the computer.
Here's my desk or should I say desks..
As usual my actual desk is completely covered in stuff,
too much to go through and explain,
but wait, there's more....
My evil plan to take over the spare living room
is working (mwa ha ha).
I started a little at a time,
just a canvas here and there,
then the second easel snuck in there and
I've now captured quite a bit of the room.
If I can just sneak in a waterproof drop sheet
I can actually paint in there.
The light is fantastic as there are three full length windows
plus the light coming from where I'm standing in the foyer.
Give me a month or two and the room
will be mine (mwa ha ha ha)
Sorry, I digress.
I'm in an oceany, boaty mood at the moment.
Here are my latest experiments,
still very much in the early stages

I took these on my phone so they are
not good, the colours are much brighter.
I will be inking these next week in class.
And here is my latest jelly fish inking
I still have a lot of work to do on this
but you can see the jellies appearing.
Can you spot the little fish that just appeared?
I'm leaving him in and I'll put some coral or something 
there for him to hide in.

I just had to show off these little lovelies.
I took these photos from my bedroom
which overlooks the canal.

There were five pelicans, I just wish
I was a better photographer as there 
were endless painting opportunities.
If it wasn't so cold I would have run down to
the back fence in my PJ's but I would have frozen.
Well, that's my desk for the week
now hop on over to 
and see the other desks around the world
this lovely sunny (but cold)

Sold, sold, sold for WOYWW

The art show was last week
and joy of joys,
I sold all of my pieces.

Now I can buy heaps more
goodies and more art lessons.

My desk is a mess as usual
this week, I kinda left for class
in a hurry and left bits where they were.

I'm working on Mr Pelican again
and during the few minutes I had
over the last week I roughed in his beak
and his eye.
Not looking too good there,
it's more like he got into the brandy and
is blind drunk.
Today in class I fixed up the darker blue bits on
his feathers and my teacher
taught me a secret way to do foam on water
 (so I can't tell you how I did it).

 How cool does that look.
I had the best time playing with it.
Now all I have to do is finish the beak
and eye and another canvas is done!

I love the watery stuff so much that I'm going to ditch 
the cockatoos for a while and start another
water painting.

It's winter school holidays here
so I have to keep little miss out of trouble,
especially now as she has
 discovered boys!!!
Oh the pain!!!
Just hope I can pick up a
paint brush this week.

That's my messy desk for this week
now go to 
and see the other desks
around the world
this cold wintery
