Show and tell Saturday - whimsical bluebird

Well another week has gone by, my how time flys.  For this week's show and tell for Artists in Blogland I have been busy painting this whimsical bird in mixed media.   I have cropped the pic for this blog but am intending to use is as a basis for a card.

I am also doing the fabulous Jane Davenport's great Supplies Me class and this is my first coloured pencil face, trying to get some shading as Jane is teaching us.  Looking at this I feel that the whole face is not strong enough in colour, but I think that will come with confidence and practice.

The next challenge for Mr Toast's Creative Tuesday is all done and I will put that on my blog probably tomorrow.

It's Marcia's birthday today, she is the lovely lady who runs Artists in Blogland, go and send her best wishes.

Well that's what I have been doing this week.  Happy weekend everyone!


  1. Love the blue tweet! And you're rocking the colored pencil! The face is beautiful...the softness and subtle details are great! POP ART MINIS

  2. Your bluebird is so cute....and the face is beautiful!! I love the soft colors. They look so ethereal and feminine.
