The hand was the first. I spent probably close to an hour and a half on it. I used my own hand for this..but added a bit more nail. No, it's not the best, but the light kept changing and started annoying me. lol
The foot came next. I was wearing socks and shoes, so I couldn't see my foot, and just kinda guessed where everything went. Looks a bit cartoonish to me. heheThe face (or half a face) was last. This was done out of pure boredom while waiting for my husband to be called back by the doc.

I started this boat last week and I need help with what reflections I would see in the water if it was quite still. I only have a picture of the boat on dry land but it has to be in the water for the painting .....
Any other advice would be most welcome .....
Thanks gals .....
I have edited it to include the boat on dry land ....

I got itchy fingers, and I really needed to draw something, anything. So I went down to my studio, looking for my Conte sticks, I was sure I had several skin toned ones or the pastel pencils. Must have given them away as a gift, as they were still boxed. Never mind, I found my willow charcoal sticks, and my holder.
8"x12" on paper

I went to bed Friday sometime and only got up today (monday). I only got out of bed twice in that time, once to answer the phone to Ree, on Saturday night, (I forgot to take the phone to bed, but I was that sick I didn't care, and last night, my friend and neighbour Kim had cooked me a meal.. I couldn't eat it, it is in the fridge.
I am up to go get my paintings from the Ekka, and I have a Dr's appointment tonight. I am eating a bowl of porridge right now, help build me up a bit.. I feel awful still..

Me? I am sick, still.
How about, everyone doing a drawing a week for the next week. I proper drawing, not a sketch.
Draw anything you wish. A portrait, a still life, fauna, just make it interesting and a complete drawing.

I entered three paintings into the "Ekka" The show runs until next Saturday. I went in to look at the artwork today, and discovered this painting had sold. The other two paintings I entered are Golden Girl, My Sunflower, and Flying, the yacht painting with the coloured spinnakers. This one that sold, was Emotions II Acrylic on canvas. 24"x24"
There had to have been in an excess of 1000 paintings in there. In the watercolour section, first prize was won by a varnished watercolour glued to a black canvas. It was of a varigated leafy plant. Name escapes me at present.
Another first prize in the open section, was another varnished watercolour.
A charcoal, with yellow cp of a Grader, one the drawing section.
I can't remember what won the acrylics now.
