Monthly Painters Challenge – Opposite colours

I entered a new challenge this month, the Monthly Painters’ Challenge over on Facebook. I was honoured to have been accepted into it in April and I spent most of the month pondering exactly what I was going to do for it.

The challenge was ‘Opposite Colours’, and my initial thought involved a few creatures emerging from a colour wheel and fighting it out. It was a good idea and I could have drawn it, but I felt it was too cartoony and if I did colour it, it would have been in watercolour and my current bunch of art is in acrylics, so I pondered some more.

Mermaid still a work in progress

Mermaid still a work-in-progress

And here I am still painting my mermaid. It is taking forever because I only have small amounts of time to attend to it. I ended up setting it up inside and working by my desk lamp. Not the best, but at least I can pick it up and leave it when I have to. I much prefer painting outside on a sunny day, but alas, winter is coming here and the days are getting cold and windy.

But! I have made some progress. Still a way to go, but getting there slowly.

Mermaid 3

More mermaids

Youngest Daughter’s mermaid is likely to be blue or maybe gold, I’m undecided at this point. Aiming to make her different from Eldest Daughter’s (whose mermaid has now been christened ‘Sofie’). The octopus has made a return because he was cute in that first original drawing even though Eldest Daughter kicked him off the menu. Does anyone know what else I can use for mermaid bras other than clam shells? I’ve scribbled in mussels here, but if anyone else can give me some suggestions, I’m open 😀

Y is for Yarn and a Yelp for help

Do you remember string painting in primary school? Where with a lot of glue, string and mess, you make a picture out of gluing string to paper in patterns. If I recall correctly it was sometimes used to create a print as the string created a raised surface.
