of the bears over at the bear site

but that doesn´t matter. there´s 
plenty of time for all the fun

Painting Poppies


Those of you, who have been around here
for long, know I´ve been trying my hands on
some sketching and painting.

trying out new tecniques
different medias
exercising

recently I signed up for a Poppy
painting class at Mitsib
 I just love the way she´s painting
her poppies.




this is really challenging
these poppies are made with watercolor.


I haven´t painted much with watercolor
so wanted to learn the tecnique for this too


here´s  my humble attemps


I´m having a hard time
trying to have the paint do as I wish

It looks very easy on those instructions
I tell you
it.is.not


I made these today
making a few in between


practice - practice - practice
I might get the hang of it eventually

Have a beautiful day
Tina ♥♥♥
