Pyjama Bunny - Guilty as Charged!

Pyjama Bunny - Guilty as Charged!

This just made me smile - love the expression, Andrea. Attitude in spades!

Thank you Seok :- ) He belongs to my daughter and he really has spent the last few days (plus the preceding 21 years) in his pyjamas! So glad he made you smile. I was looking for something to paint from life with these new paints and I thought he’d be the perfect subject! Really lovely to hear from you. Happy painting! :- ) xx

I love this Andrea! Your write up made me smile, I had a lazy time too and not drawn anything for weeks by did start something last night and will try to finish it today.

Thank you Margaret :- ) It’s been a bit of an on-off year like that for me too, sometimes I think we all need some ‘down tools’ time to recharge. What are you painting at the moment?? For me it was the fact that I had been meaning for ages to try this new media which helped me - finally - make time to set up my workspace again. Glad he made you smile. He’s a bit of a cutie! Happy painting!

Lovely Bunny, Andrea! I have tried water soluble oils twice but I have a feeling that they’re not for me. Perhaps I should give them another chance. Anyway I wish you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!

Hi Satu, lovely to hear from you. I’ve tried them exactly twice now too! I really liked painting with them (using brushes) and diluting the paints with water was a breeze. I like the speed at which they dry too, but the best thing for me is not having to use solvents and mediums. I’ve had a go at flowers and they have come out completely differently to my acrylics and knife paintings. Not better, just very different. So I think I am going in for a third go very soon! Thank you for commenting Satu :- ) Have a really, really great New Year’s Eve and a very brilliant 2019. Happy painting!!! Xx

Hang on Studio Wall

Anyone else (besides pyjama bunny here) spent the whole of Twixmas in their pyjamas? ...or Christmas jumpers and joggers - which is basically the same thing! :- ) I finally got the time to try out a sample size set of water-mixable oil paints for the very first time. This is the result. It's very different experience to painting in acrylics with painting knifes - and a big challenge as I only had 5 tubes and two of those were black and white. I'm really enjoying this media though and I'll be posting some wildflowers using these paints next. Anyone else enjoying trying something new too? Happy painting! Best wishes, A :- )
