Clay Hawksbill Sea Turtle

Hello everyone! I have been pretty busy lately with daily traveling to town for my daughter’s classes and my going to the gym! So although I am staying in shape, it is hard to fit time in for doing my artwork! But last week I was able to form this Hawksbill sea turtle. I didn’t put the detail on it until this morning, though.

I have decided that this is a clay work of the watercolor painting I did of “Shelley, the Hawksbill Sea Turtle!”

I have another clay work I did before this that will be coming and an acrylic painting that is different from anything else I’ve done! I hope you enjoy them.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 🙂

Witchy Clay Work

Here’s a Halloween treat! I did this at the same time that I did all my other first clay works, but thought it was more appropriate for today! It has been hard to save it for now! I like this one a lot.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween! Give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

Clay Tortoise

Hello everyone. I haven’t drawn very many tortoises, but I sort of figured out how to make one! I have a little one sitting on my desk that I tried to copy.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

Clay Sea Turtle

Hello everyone! I recently purchased some green tinted soft clay! It is not the kind I would put in a kiln, though. I wanted clay I could use over if I need to instead of buying more. It has been a really fun thing to do! This is my first peice. Of course it had to be a SEA TURTLE!! It appears he swam into some flowers!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers – Watercolor

“Those slippers will never come off…as long as you’re alive. But that’s not what’s worrying me. It’s how to do it. These things must be done delicately or you’ll hurt the spell.” the wicked witch says. Hello everyone. Just wanted to share my latest painting. It’s definitely NOT a ballerina. I may or may not be done with those for awhile. I have another project lined up to work on today.

I just bought this tube of Aureolin (Cobalt Yellow) watercolor paint a couple of weeks ago. I had to get it online, because our local art store doesn’t carry it. I have been reading about it in books so I just had to get some. Then I was feeling anxious to use it! I had a print out of this scene from “The Wizard of Oz” lying around as one of my projects to do. I experimented with the yellow and decided it was perfect for the shock sparks.

The slippers were a real challenge and her legs. All in all, it was a lot of fun to do.
