A Meeting Of The Clan... PPF

This is how I left my studio on Wednesday morning... I'm missing it, but there's work to be done. 
My daughter is flying from one nest to another within Edinburgh, so the Clan is meeting up to give her a hand!
As you can see I decided to revisit painting the wildflower meadow with acrylic paints before I left.
I feel much happier with this one, especially with a few more little additions, but I've still got a lot to learn.
Because I've been hanging on to summer for as long as I possibly could, I thought I'd include a butterfly and swallows.

Autumn has arrived... so now on to the glorious autumnal colour display.
Before I go Muffin wanted you to see her on holiday.
I think she's totally confused with what's happening, but coping.
Enjoy your weekend everyone and I hope to see you back at the studio again soon.
As usual I'm linking up with Paint Party Friday.


Sharing Studio Space... PPF & Sunday Sketches

Here is the room that I'm desperate to reacquaint myself with. 
My art studio.
I've neglected it so much favouring the big outdoor canvas of my garden, while the weather is kind.
Once my hubby retired (about a month or two ago) he became mistaken that this particular room (my studio) might be his too. 
He moved the computer monitor and keyboard on to my desk and spread files and paperwork about in gay abandon! 
Well that might be a little exaggerated, because he is really tidy and everything has to be in a file or on a spreadsheet, but you get the jist. 
It was my space!
I've mentioned this before, but muscling in to my space just wasn't on the plan as far as I was concerned. I have been working on the kitchen table lately, so I suppose I should be a little lenient... but now we're entering autumn I want to reorganise my space and move back in.
Once again when I mentioned this... hubby decided to pull everything out of the room for me to organise and decide where it should go. 
Having everything piled along the landing certainly induces productive work! 
It wasn't on my plan, but then at least it prioritised my time and got me to focus. 
Hopefully, I'll actually be able to spend some time creating and producing art next!
(Note to self: Don't mention things out loud within hubby's earshot, because he's likely to get involved whether or not I want him too).

It's time to join the Paint Party link up where Kristin and Eva host lots of talented artists to come together to share their work and inspiration.
I'm also linking up with Alexandra Sunday Sketches. 
It is week 6 already!
So that's it for this week folks.
Thanks for popping in to my place... it's great to have you visit and even better if you leave a comment, so I know you've been here. 
I'm off to start my visiting... Have a great week everyone.

Camera... Action - PPF

Hello everyone... can you believe that it's Friday! 
Woohoo and a long Bank Holiday weekend for some too.
Normally you'd expect good weather for the May Bank Holiday, but once again we had snow and hail storms today. 
Seriously will it ever warm up?

Can I just say please don't judge me... once you see the video below you'll know what I mean.
I thought I'd distract myself from the weather and have a little play by trying to make a video whilst drawing.
To say I got a little worked up about it, possibly was an understatement.
I really don't like any part of me to be in front of the camera. 
I'd much rather be behind the lens. 
The drawing will be used as a draft because basically it just isn't good enough. 
I think I was too conscious of the camera instead of enjoying the journey of creating. 
Usually my mind wanders to I know not where and I feel thoroughly de-stressed after finishing a drawing... but not today. 
Anyway here it is....
Because this video doesn't really show the sketch here's a photo of it.
But as I mentioned it isn't finished yet... there's still more work to be done. 

I've had two weeks of appointments, but finally I'm free now, so hopefully I'll be able to spend some time doing some serious painting soon. 
Especially if this weather continues, because quite frankly there's no way that I'll be spending any time in the garden until the temperature starts to rise.
I'll be linking up with the Paint Party Friday group if you'd like to see some stunning artwork then click here.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again soon.
