Grandmage drew hers without any practise and i think bampy drew his straight off too ~ this is my second attempt! i couldnt work out at first how the circles worked ~ but they do!!!

amy get your OH to do the drawing and put it on! but i bet yours isnt awful at all.

many thanks surreylad, paul and amy!

Think I've missed something!! A daffy painting competition? Will have to check out the latest goy photos.
Maybe have to do that next week.....busy getting ready for a stall at our local point to point.

Lovely drawing Sticki! Will go check out what the others are up to.

kat you are much too kind! you have a go at the painting ~ i had to look at bampys youtube tutorial a couple of times before i got the idea ~ its great ~ it really works.
i coloured it with aqua colours [pencil crayons that you can then go over with a paint brush loaded with water] thats why there is a bit of a shiny light ~ its still wet!

It's a lovely entry Sticki!

agreed ! really nice line & colour ! you can see from my effort that I'm hopeless at colour, ( not my strong point), good job ST.

many thanks karen

i left the water to do the work bampy ~ colour it in with aquerelles and then paint with clear water and it does the blending for you!

Very delicate Stickers. I t would inspire an embroidery or a design on some pottery. Portmerion watch out!:)))

28 Feb, 2013

 

oh dear me maggie! i dont think portmerion has anything to worry about!...but thank you! you are very kind

28 Feb, 2013

28 Feb, 2013

Brilliant Sticki and you told me you couldn't draw!!! I did mine really quickly and then posted it on here, still with lines on the paper too, now mine is naive, yours is accomplished.

1 Mar, 2013

 

Brilliant Sticki!

1 Mar, 2013

 

love it!!!

That's lovely Sticki! And I do like the sound of aqua crayons / aquerelles . . . are they like watercolour pencils?? I'll have to pop in to our local artists' supplies shop: full of temptation :))

Lovely and delicate - well done you.
I have said before I can only draw daisies so I am filled with admiration at this! :-)

To late Sticki ,they,ve been scrunched up and thrown away LOL ...

1 Mar, 2013

 

Im not very good at drawing flowers, they never look quite right but this one is completely down to following bampy's instructions on the video clip ~ its a very clever technique, i would never have thought it could make such a difference.

thank you for your really nice comments ~ i couldnt quite believe how different it makes the flower to use this method of drawing.

GM neither the picture or i am accomplished ~ definitely something way beyond me. [plus i had 2 practise goes before this]

yes sheila, like water colour pencils, these are made by Rexel Derwent ~ sometimes called watercolour and sometimes aquarelles, you can dip the pencil crayon in water or colour normally then paint water over them.

Amy I bet scrunchy daffodils look good too!

1 Mar, 2013

 

Thanks :)

2 Mar, 2013

 

Thanks ~ very effective :)

2 Mar, 2013

 

Have fun Sheila if you get some!

2 Mar, 2013

 

Excellent.

6 Mar, 2013

 

many thanks tree top ~ i surprised myself, usually my attempts look nothing like they should. its all down to that clever technique bampy demonstrated!

6 Mar, 2013

 

well done sticki, sorry im late :o)
