First water fall

I painted in 300 g post card size and finished in 15 min!!!  I was so afaid of painting rocks and wondered how to paint a water fall.  It is not so hard as it looks.  I'm now ready for painting the desert rock with the group today.

Left over pears

I tried this on 200 g paper.  First, the yellow pear wash was not standing.  I wondered why?  Hubby suggested that it needed to be darker shadow on the bottom.  I tried it and diluted the higher left to the lighter color.  Here they are.

But.. the purple pear is falling too !!

How to fix it ??  Help !!

AAWCC 18.4.12

AAWCC 18 Apr 2012

Six members were together this week.  We painted a simple color touch of the leaves and a  Soft Focus Technique on damp paper - a lesson from Elizabeth Fluehr YouTube.
It was a very interesting technique and every one did it very good.

It was my turn to be an organiser and a producer this week.
Every one enjoyed it and was excited through out the session, I guess !!

Me..?*#*  I was relieved.. that.. things went well.

Who is next...?

We painted two Japanese favourite style post cards.  One was a donut post card, mine was very bright fancy one !!

I painted this about 4 times from model photo "draw and paint together" blog.  I'll paint it again a few times, it should be better then and if it is I will send it for a competition !! ha... ha.

It's a dream, though.

Another disaster perspective..

My painting is one step forward and 2 steps backward these days.  I thought I'm going to  skip this painting from the blog.  For a second thought, I add it anyway to see what the comment would be !!

Negative painting practise

Negative painting practising

This is a dull painting.  Rescue me...please..

Negative painting

Our AAWC meeting on Wednesday morning, we learned how to paint "negative painting".  It was my first time, we were very happy and enjoyed doing it.  It was bit messy because we put load of water and splash colors in to the paper.  Every one did their work very well, so did I.
Happy painting...

After painting, a very good Japanese friend invited us for cup of tea at her apartment.  But surprisingly that she has lovely Sushi ready for us.  Emm.. Yummi...

Very lucky me.. Love Sushi ...

Apple practices





Practising about 20 apples was amazingly interesting.  I' m now painting an apple without first pencil drawing as a result.  I'm still struggling with mixing too much water in to the colors so that colors were out of control.   The halos need more practising.
Looking forward to do more and more practising.

April Fool's Day!!!

April Fool's Day !!!

I'm going to scare you with my red apples!!!   I thought these red apples would turn
really ugly.  But they were fine, weren't they?  So my April Fool's day to you  is
not successful?? I painted them this morning at about 4 am.  I didn't do the
home work yesterday.  It was my working day yesterday, doing IELTS
exam proctoring.  We, proctors spent 4.5 hrs, standing and walking
around the theatre proctoring.  Very tiring day.
