poor Minerva, really needed to be done in pastels, but kept trying different WC triads
quin gold, perelyne and burnt orange
tried again closeup, 6x6, gamboge, quin rose, antwerp
an hour on each


so gave up on that, and drew the cropped shot of the manor, loved the door
this is graphtint pencils in 8x12 Venezia sketchbook
2 hrs for sure

on for something different
handmade 6x6 sketchbook, the paper does not like masking fluid,OR acrylic ink (too absorbent) finished touching it up with a fine sharpie
I really need to do this on a WC card


finally a loose crop of the rose garden

6x10 WC pad
the last two took a couple hrs along with another postcard I did for the plant parade

also a touch of blue ink sharpie


I had way too much fun this week

You sure look like you had some fun playin' Bonnie - all nicely painted but my absolute fav, is the close-up Manor Garden. Love the looseness and spontaneity of this painting.

They are all great, Minerva seems to be looking right at me especially in the 2nd. The manor crop is lovely and is probably my favourite. Love the handbag and the draping beads and the pretty roses are beautifully done with that blue and purple area offseting them so well.

Bonnie,what a lovely WDE Gallery....so much fun! Well done on both paintings of Minerva's eyes. Love the loose style of the Rose Garden and the use of the sharpie pen capturing the dangling chain of the bag....great colors too.

A gallery all of your own Bonnie - what a lovely display!
I do admire your sense of fun and adventure when you try all these different things!
I can't choose a favourite - but I'm partial to the strong sunlight on the roses!;)
Thank you for them all!

Wow, lots of work and all of it very good -- the roses are my favorite!

The roses is one of my favorite paintings of yours, Bonnie. It's well balanced, with a beautiful composition and freedom of movement and color.
