woyww - the detritus of fourdays and a mermaid

I have been painting, usually I have no problems creating, but I have eight days left to do Millie's mermaid, she loves her mothers thing that I did for her, so daughter requested a mermaid (daughter loves water and dancing) and I have procrastinated like a good 'un.....

I told Debs ( mother) that I would do millie (daughter) a mermaid and bring it over to her (France) next week, and I still have not got any further than three sketches non of which I wanted to go any further with...

The Debs thing that Millie loves is a heavily mixed media thing, I can't do one of those in eight days, cos it takes a month just for the turps to evaporate to non lethal levels.  I risk life and limb to do one of my mixed media transfer doofers.

 

so I have done Millie a totally not mixed media thing

 

I have done her a watercolour, and framed it....

 

and that is on my desk today because I need to decide that it is finished...ah the simplicity of using one media Bliss....but it is so comparatively easy that I think it can't possibly be done - too easy....

class (life) was minus the model this week, we decided against one of us stripping off and doing the honours, but Steve was a sport and said he'd model if he could keep his clothes on, so I did a portrait,

then we did our own hands, and that was really relaxing,

I am back at work tomorrow - just for a couple of days - and because I have spring cleaned the rest of the house and when I got to my room all I wanted to do was paint - I have made rather a mess...

 

It has been okay saying goodbye to Sarah over again, this year feels easier than last year...

 

see you all later,
