Howdy! :wave:

Welcome to our latest adventure.
Your invited to join us.

Each week we study a new artist or the same one. It's up to you.
A quick study or alla prima or just the start of a work your doing
in traditional art. Any medium is welcomed.

I'm behind now. Going to catch up this week. :)

Whenever I think I have too much to do I reminded myself that Rachel Ruysch had 10 children.

MONY...where are you heading to on your holiday????? tyree:wave: :)

I'm going to the Riviera for a week ( on the Eastern side to a small town called Moneglia between Portofino and the "Cinqueterre" where we like to go to relax).. I'm leaving on Saturday .:D

Barbara is lucky... I'd love to go back to Ireland too ... I went there about 10 years ago... I loved it ! :heart:

Have a great holiday!

Susan I am in agreement, lovely work and color an exciting piece!:thumbsup:
Hi Mony, have a very good time in the Riviera !!!!
Hi Barb, lovely lady indeed and enjoy her greatly!
What are those type of hats called?
And yes, all those travel, must see piccys.....:) private or public way.;)
I am not sure how long it would take to paint a floral like this one.
I suspect a looooooong time. Her work is very detailed.
Susan, Ireland, you luck girl!!!!!!!!
It's starting to get dark earlier here now.
And about two weeks until the big day around here.
I think my hair is turning grey and falling out :lol:

The ladys hat looks like a turban hugh! Did I say Tyree that I liked your work this week.

I loved all the angles of the head study you did as well Nickel. Those are very difficult to do just right.

I'm so glad you are vacationing Mony. I wish we could all tag along!~!!
