Creative mess??

I don't know what to call this. Creative mess or just a mess. Well you will have to wait and see. If this thing resurfaces you shall know. In the meantime I am just making a mess of my DH's table.

Today's class

My arm feels like a lead today. We have been painting like mad in the class. We must have done more than 10 paintings of different poses of the human form. Forgive me some of them are smuged as you see we were painting faster than the paints dried. We got only 3 minutes on each pose and we had to produce the painting. It was a marthon whew!! I am happy that at least they are recognisable as a human figure LOL!! I am not going to bore you with rest of the pictures!

Head butting

Trying to wake my muse up is like head butting against a wall at the moment sigh! I am trying for a certain shape for the head but nothing is working at the moment. Sorry nothing much going on at this end. The third one is the best amonst the lot will have to do something with it but don't know what. I don't make witches by the way even though the nose suggests it. Will have to think of some fun character. For the CIF (Creations in Fabric Retreat) we are supposed to make balloons in which we will arrive. All the ladies have drawns some beautiful balloons and look at me I could only come up with this huh!

Winter Blues

Many of us are suffering from this particular problem called winter blues and I am one of them. Try as much as I can I can't get myself to start a project. I got it in my head but oh to get it out is proving to be a problem. So for now I got to show you something small that I did in the plane to while away my time. Oh what a pitiful state of affairs is this!

Doll done

After a bit of trouble with her colour c ombination and colours I got her done. If you remember from my previous post that I had started this doll before going to India. Since I couldn't finish her I took her to India thinking I would be able to finish her. I had a clear picture of her in my mind. We all have this clear picture but the trouble is it does not work out sometimes. I painted her body with pearl white and the bodice with gold pigment colour in India. But somehow it did not look nice at all as the paint went all blotchy on her. So when I got back I gave her a coat of pearl intereferenc gold colour. and for flowers etc some paint. When I got back I re painted her top and the skirt She changed immediately for the better. So here she is......

Back to school

LOL! Not quite but I did start my water colour painting classes today. We are doing the figure this term. We had a model pose for us nude. As I have never done something like this before I didn't know what to expect. But in the end it all turned out ok. I rather enjoyed the class. We had to work out the proportions and then paint the figure first in cool colours and then in warm colours. The first is in cool colours and the second is in warm colours. It is not great but ok for a first attempt I think.

Christmas in India

On the street where we live. Fruits and flowers in the garden. Christmas day at last here comes Santa!!! My sis in law had arranged for a friend to play the part. The kids had great fun trying to guess who it was. The young lady who acted the part did very well. A pity I didn't get a picture of her in all the rush. Time to open up the gifts Santa with the kids This is an orphanage close by which we try and help out. Every year they look forward to the visit by Santa Clause. Such adorable kids everyone insists on shaking hands with you and wants to know your name. They all get gifts and Christmas lunch is served in packets specially made up for them This little darling girl absolutely enjoyed her chocholates. Finally time to say goodbye Evening was spent relaxing and enjoying some fireworks.
