Some days one just shouldn't attempt it! This was one...'studio' starts rockin'  :boat:  people come callin'  :cursing: rain starts fallin'  :-X wind dries the paint before it hits the paper  :tickedoff: the end result is....


ever have one of those days?
Cheers, Val

considering you were battling the elements, you have done a great job Val O0

When the weather improves you can add a light colour wash for some sand and do the fine work around the centre

There is no way I could've done such a fine job under those conditions. Great work Val.  A bad day of painting is better than a good day at work in my book.

I like your 'studio' :painting: Val.  You keep your area neat and organized.  I'll have to give my new area a go, but I need to purchase some lamps since I was 'borrowing' the ones we had in our office area and don't want to be in trouble with my beloved :whistle:  Anyhow, keep up your great work!

Thanks Dennis...always nice to know I've got company on the way to the  :idiot2: house!  :2funny:  Love your skateboard by the way  :clap:

Thanks for your words of encouragement Nolan, Unfortunately a speeding dinghy went by and the centre of the SD is now a lovely dark coloured blob  :( . Best to start again I think. At least it was only on cartridge paper so no great loss.  :clap:

Ah Kelley, you are too kind. I must go in search of a good light. My biggest problem when  :painting: in my 'studio'  :2funny:, is the whole  :boat: keeps turning with the wind...constantly changing light! Makes one a bit dizzy  :tongue: sometimes!  :2funny:

My loving husband (Lloyd), says that shouldn't bother me in the least...normal state!  :2funny: :2funny:
Cheers, Val

He's actually very supportive...just been with me too long...his sense of humour has become almost as deranged as mine! :2funny:
I appreciate the encouragement, wasn't really happy with my colour blending. I think the red I have isn't really a true red if that makes sense. Makes mixing a bit difficult. Only w/c available on the island is french ultramarine, raw sienna, and burnt umber! Not a lot of choices! Perhaps once we get to the french islands they'll have more.
 :pray:
Cheers, Val

Very glad to know Lloyd is so supportive, Val and your sense of humour is :crazy2: compatible :2funny:  I wish there were a way to send you some paint, but it would be powder by the time it got to you perhaps.  Let me know if there is a feasible way to mail you supplies.

oh boy with only those colours you need to be stranded in the desert for them to be useful. Also let us know if we can help with some supplies, sure we could make a plan O0

You guys are so sweet!  :-*  :hug:
The biggest problem with having paints sent in (dependent on which island), is shipping costs. Exhorbitant. Usually costs double the price of the paint or supplies and then customs. Here in Grenada it is 37% duty. I'm really hoping someone is going to visit this winter with a big suitcase!  :heeha: My sister  :angel: is sending a few bits down for xmas, so that's something to look forward to.  :yippee:
Thank you both for your thoughtfulness, it will come back ten fold.
Cheers, Val
