Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020


In the photo I'm working from there's an equal amount of grass on the other side of the picture but I'm going to make alterations or it will take me ages - maybe add some thistles or brambles ... the foreground rhododendron was also smaller in the photo so I enlarged it to cover a bigger area.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Good idea, Kay. It’s looking good - reminds of a Chinese painting!

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Thanks Penny. I think I need a break from it for a few days now ... To rest my eyes! I might make a start on the A&W challenge in the meantime. I can use a long-handled brush and stand back from it while I work!

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Good idea. I’ve finished my challenge. Not really in the mood to do another. Like you, I’ll leave it a few days to look at the others.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

This is where I left it last night. I got around the problem of having to draw too much grass - by adding some sedges.


I've spent 5 hours on it so far. I may have got it all drawn out by the end of next week.

Such patience! I tend to have to work quicker than you! It’s already an excellent drawing - like a woodcut!

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

I don't always work this slowly - only when I'm doing details in ink. I'm trying to speed up with painting. That's why I like the WDEs - the idea is to create something within 2 hours, so it encourages me to work quickly.

I spent another hour on this over the weekend, I got the tree finished and part of the background. I'm hoping to do a lot more this week.

Look forward to seeing it finished. I do like ink drawings and pen and wash.

I've just started this sleepy cow from a ref on pixabay.
Black and white charcoal on brown Canson's pastel paper.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

It’s it’s beautiful already, Patricia. I like work at this stage. Sometimes as much as the finished piece.

I look forward to the completed painting.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Thanks Chammi. I haven't really worked on it since last week - i find it hard to work if I'm not in the house by myself! I have my pens out tonight though for my WDE picture.

Re: What are you working on first quarter 2020

Here's where I'm at with my landscape. I've done the easy bits now - the background goes into some leafy beech woodland and I'm not sure how to tackle it just yet, and the rest of the foreground is water and grass - really din't know how I'm going to do the water but I'm going to try and work it out tonight.

Getting better and better, Kay. What do you plan to do with it? Hang it or sell it?
