At it again

After spending some frustrated time yesterday trying to paint hands, I just couldn't let it alone, I had to have another go.  So I went back to the easel today and made some adjustments.

These look much more like hands to me. 

After working on the hands I decided it was time to start tackling the pattern on the lady's gown.  This really had me really apprehensive because I just didn't know how it was going to approach it, let alone wonder how it would turn out.  Here are my efforts so far.


A few splodges of colour here and there doesn't look too crash hot but when you stand back...it actually looks o.k.  
I had forgotten how much I love painting, time just disappeared today.

  1. I see an improvement in the fingers and I think the floral design on the tunic is very lovely!

  2. I love the way that your painting is growing each time you blog, it must be wonderful to have such a talent. x

  3. The hands look great Anne and I love the pattern on the robe.....I know how the time flies when you get involved in something.....

  4. Simply beautiful!
    Lovely to catch up with your blog again
    Have a super week.

  5. I think it looks great Anne! Much better than what I could ever do. Painting isn't my thing. I think you are doing a great job!

  6. It's looking great - then hand looks so much better now than on the previous post - well done!

    Oh and my latest post is about Padley Gorge - the first painting on you calendar!

  7. I can see the difference in the hands & the flowers on the gown - you've captured them perfectly.

  8. You've been hiding your talents ... it's wonderful Anne :D

  9. Your paintings are wonderful! Congratulations!

  10. Beautiful work Anne. I find hands very, very difficult to draw and paint so I can empathise with you there - but I can also see you've done a great job! They are so expressive and you've done a lovely job with the lighting - giving them the depth.

  11. Nice job :)

    So many paintings suffer from being looked at from such close quarters that the illusion disappears.
