Misty the Cockatiel and Little Bit, the Parakeet

Once upon a time I had a Cockatiel, Misty and a Parakeet named Little Bit.  I miss them, so I drew them for this week's Paint Party Friday.

I used Prismacolor Pencils, gel pen, Pitt Pen and Pan Pastel.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting this great party of artists. There are so many creative artists using mixed media, paints, stencils and showing how to use them through a blog or uTube. Please visit and utilize their talent and knowledge that they so generously supply.

Blessings,
Janet

I used pan pastels, watercolor pencil and prismacolor pencil.  They are what I see almost every day that I walk. Of course the two brown ducks are now teenagers and the yellow duckling has changed color.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a wonderful Paint Party Friday.  Visit the other artists and have fun trying new art supplies and creative challenges you will find there.

Water Color ~ Gradually gaining experience with different paint supplies

I am gradually gaining experience with the different paints.  This week it's watercolor on an ACEO size card.  I view Bob Ross weekly on PBS, however, I do not use Oils.  I also watch Frank Clarke which is watercolor.  It has been a challenge trying to figure out how to use the techniques that Bob Ross uses and translating them into watercolors, Gouache or pastels.  I'll eventually get the hang of it.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for offering a place for artists to experiment and teach so that we all may become creative and original. Paint Party Friday is a wonderful place to visit, show and comment on everyone else's ideas, creativity and learn something in the visits.

Thank you so much for visiting and please leave a comment, it helps me so much.

Blessings,
Janet

Art Journal weeks 19-21.


Week 19 Document a random act of kindness: I've been writing a Middle-Grade book Monster Rules. Rose my friend and neighbor broke her hip and is in rehab. I read my book to her as I am writing and she is helpful, interested and I am grateful to her.  She enjoys the company and I am glad that I am able to be there for her. She is 93 years old, mostly blind and has a fine mind.

Week 20 Use a Stamp in a new way: I used the stamp on a piece of fabric. "Reach for the Stars."

Week 21: Add embroidery or embroidery floss to the page. I crocheted with floss a girl with a hat and bead.

Another fun page.  I used Rose's picture to show her. Beautiful lady.

I thank Kristin and Eva for providing a wonderful place for artists to show what they do and how they do it on Paint Party Friday.  A lot of interesting creative artists that share they work, their creativity and their supplies.
Blessings,
Janet
