WDE Poppies.

This painting was created using a reference from a WDE a few months ago. I never finished it on the day and just now finished the painting. Painted using ArtRage.

WDE Magpie.

I have never seen a Magpie as beautiful as this one. The host of the weekly drawing event posted the photo as a green magpie but here in Australia, a magpie is a black and white bird, not this gorgeous blue.

Here is a picture of the Australian Magpie.

I would love to know more about this green magpie as it is a gorgeous bird.

Recent WDEs.

These paintings are from the last few Weekend Drawing Events at WetCanvas.
1. "Charlie the cat" and "the carousel horse"
Two ATCs done in acrylic on watercolour card.
2. "Pomegranite" This is a digital painting done using ArtRage.
3. This painting, the original refernce was pink and the challenge was to paint it a different colour.
I decided to go with yellow. I found it very difficult to drag the correct colours out of my imagination.
It was only later that I remebered I have numerous photos of yellow roses from my mothers garden and I could have used them to get the right tones!!
It was good for the excercise anyway.
