    I’m hoping to learn to paint a watercolour background and then have a pencil layer on the top.

    Arpie ‘sip and paint’ sounds fun! I guess you didn’t overdo the sipping because your painting looks terrific.

    You are very kind, @HelenlovesSnoopy - it was TERRIFIC fun, in good company!  hehe the Daiquiris were GORGEOUS - but I limited myself to 2 until after we'd finished!!  ;)  

    WOW - we sure have some talented artists on board now!!!   YOUR art is just awesome!! I LOVE your cards!   xx. Looking forward to seeing anything else you have!!


    Oh WOW! WELL DONE, @Cindi.... that doggie is wonderful!!!  ;)  I reckon you could get a few commissions from here!!  ;)   People LOVE their dogs & cats - unconditional acceptance & companionship xx

    My husband was a self taught artist .... he did some Pointilism drawings too ... all pen & all dots (not one line on them!) They took hundreds of hours to complete. 

    Here's a paiting he did of George Gregan & Kiwi Allblack Rokocoko, preventing a match winning try!

    Well done @Cindi.  You are talented.  I don't have an artistic bone in my body.  Look forward to more drawings from you.

    @arpie, your hubby’s very clever - I know about pointillism because of a scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 😂

    I'm really sorry to hear that about your hubby Arpie.  I can see why you want to keep his art all over the house, even though it must be sad it must be kind of lovely as well.  Sending you a lot of hugs.

    This picture looks very Irish/Celtic to me, with the green eyes and touches of auburn in her hair.

    I think you should keep on painting too - even if just for fun.

    Thank you xx @HelenlovesSnoopy .... my hair used to be quite 'auburn' - but now is more 'white' ... we don't go 'grey' .... we go white xx.

    He was sent to Rhodesia with his twin in the '40s, as a 10 year old and LOVED growing up there .... (ex UK) and his Giraffe painting/drawing (a mix of mediums) with Kilimanjaro in the background (that he never visited!) was amazing.

    @arpie, that picture makes me feel so peaceful when I look at it <3

    And your hubby was a twin!  Twins are so special (I have twin girls).

    thank you xxx  It is HUGE & is in our lounge room above the fire place ( I am looking at it now. xx) @HelenlovesSnoopy

    Twins are SO special - they always had a 'telepathic' feeling of emotions & problems .... right to the end xx. His brother is a tad fragile just now :( 

    My sister has 'non identical' twins .... whilst hubby & brother were identical - but as he continued competing, he remained very 'toned' ... whereas his brother became a tad more 'rotund' .....  but they sounded the SAME - their voices were identical!!   xx
