I worked a little bit more on my canvas. I find acrylics a bit hard to work with as it is not easy to blend the colours. I think it looks a bit better now . I can still see the light brush strokes but it seems to add to the feeling of stormy weather which is what I want. Have to work on the umbrella now with paper clay. At present I have just painted it on.

Hello all I am back again. Travelling so much does sap the energy so I really have not been up to doing any doll making. Since my Santa is not going anywhere at the moment I just decided to do something different on the spur of the moment. Not sure if this is going to turn out the way I want it to but here is the begining of what I started.
I am afraid the image is not strictly original. I found this amongst some free images in the Internet that I liked so I drew roughly the outlines of the image. It is for my own use so I don't think it is going to matter much. I am doing this in mixed media. Shall see how it turns out. I am just wondering how to do the umbrella I have an idea forming. I am off to see if it works. Wish me luck.

Sorry have not posted for awhile now. Life just takes over sometimes sigh! I am back in India again for a short visit. The other day when I went near a plant I must have startled my friend Mr G. because I heard this almighty rustle and of he leaped from the bush and broke into that funny run of his.:-)
Today I saw him sunning himself but he was less perturbed by me. I guess he is getting used to seeing me around now. But he did keep a wary eye on me as I came close to take a picture. He turned his little head in all angles to see what I was up to and just sat there watching me.
My time here seems to be perpetually full of things to do but this time thankfully mum is keeping fairly well. But I do need to take her for a check up to the doctors which is bit of trek from here but it's got to be done. Weather here has been extremely pleasant for this time of the year. The day time temps are around 28 degrees and 24 in the nights and very low humidity which makes it really pleasant to go about.
My Santa clause is taking shape very slowly so Jules you are right it will be ready by next christmas :-)
