STUDIO UPDATE: I'm seeing more than just Pink & Purple

 I had my  Paint Party Friday blog post all organised ahead of time on my phone this week, and was very proud of myself for being on top of things, however when it came to publish time, the darn thing would not cooperate. After quite a few attempts and a little frustration, I logged into publish my post from blogger, only to find it was not in my drafts. So here I am, posting late (again).

This week was a productive one, and I have lots of photos to share, please bare with me.

I moved onto painting the Petunias on the big garden painting!

As you can see above, my original practice flowers were way to big for the big canvas.

Hello Mr Lizard!  I have started to paint the flowers in.

I needed to extend my palette after re-watching Carol Marines ArtByte Tutorial on mixing colours.

Also some of my paintings have been up at The Collective Store for the last couple of weeks.

I finally got to editing and sharing them!


Last but not least, Here is my {Flashback Friday} painting. I've been sharing an older painting each week with my Facebook and Instagram friends, and now I'll be sharing it with my blog friends too.

Have a fun and productive week everyone!
