We are probably leaving tomorrow for a winter holiday (with MIL of course, sigh) but since things are looking up with her it should be a bit more upbeat than our last couple of visits. My mom will be in California from Thursday onwards, which is great for her - but we'll miss her around the house. But then again...we get the house to ourselves for a week...
So yes, I could have posted Animal Wednesday as a scheduled post, but I actually don't like those. My posts are somewhat immediate, not planned, not scheduled and it wears on my mind thinking that something is out there getting ready to pop (or not pop as sometimes happens) on my blog. So, I am posting Animal Wednesday on Tuesday and since there are NO rules for AW - I'm not in trouble with the animal police!!
So, the latest fish episode:
On a snowy Sunday, after inside chores were complete, I sat and watched a movie and drew another few fishes with a few additional extensions on their chubby bodies. After they were done and scanned in, I printed them on various paper, and played with color.
I like painting fish because you can play with watercolors in their bodies - letting one blend into another, plus - fish colors are variable, there is no "right" or "wrong" colors for a fish. And I do love fish that walk....
I was working on this guy early in the AM, and his tail was coming out so red, and the paint acting so strange! I thought it was the paper that I wasn't used to but no...it was me...I was using turp instead of water and using watercolor paint. Very strange outcome I think, and very odd to work with. He is still a work in process - I've got to work on Leg Details.
Which one(s) do you like, if any?
Everyone is posting about how they won't be posting over the holidays. I won't make that statement and I'll post if I have something interesting to post about!
Happy Animal Wednesday to you all, Merry Holidays and Happy New Year.
