Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

I like it as it is, as you say it gives a feeling of openness.

I really like the look of it so far, and I love the exposed woodgrain.

What fun kittens.

An excellent start to the scene with lions.

Thank you all, I will finish detailing the lions and revisit the foreground after.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Good start Penny! I like those golden eyes. I haven't chosen a picture for the challenge yet, but I am considering this one.

I'm working on a landscape at the moment. Not one of my strong points! I'm still drawing it out, I'll post some pictures later if I'm feeling brave.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Thanks, Kay. I look forward to the landscape. I wish they held more appeal for me but I’m not drawn the painting them, myself.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

I give them a try every now and again. I struggle with landscapes, i try them every now and again but I hardly ever paint one that I'm happy with, i always manage to make them look really boring!

Here's where I'm at so far. I'm drawing all the details so I can go around them in ink before I paint them in watercolour. I've spent an hour on it so far. It's in portrait format (it's a fallen tree) so I'm having to work on it sideways

A good start on the bark, Kay. Keep at it!

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

My 'to-do' list for February:

- Finish my landscape, or at least get all my details drawn out
- The A&W challenge - I still need to decide on my ref and medium
- The Plant Parade challenge - I have my ref already printed out so I might draw this out in the next few days (it's going to be a watercolour)
- Join in with the WDE

It's a big list for me, but possible!

You are busy, Kay. Well done for attempting so many things. I might take a look at the watercolour challenge.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

I look at the watercolour challenge every month Penny, but never join in because ... it's usually landscape related . I know probably should join in, because then my landscapes might improve, or I might find a way of painting them that I enjoy.

Speaking of landscapes, i did a little bit more of this last night


I made a start on the foreground, as I need to start adding grasses now and I was getting confused which lines belonged to what.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

I can understand that, Kay! I will look now. I didn’t get a chance yesterday.

I really like your leaf shapes. Well done, so far.

I will show you a little more of the panther, but not too much as it’s for the 20th.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Looks great Penny!

I've finally chosen my ref for the challenge and I know how I'm going to paint it. I'll probably leave it until next week. I'm busy with my landscape - I started adding grasses, it sent my eyes daft.
