Keep us posted on what's happening on Maui!!  I'm sure you'll find lots of great scenes to paint.  I did an oil of the Iao Needle.  Check that site out.

almost all packed - just missing toiletries and my painting materials.

 :2funny: Sharon, when I pack to travel.... my drawing & painting gear is the first thing I pack! Then I take clothes etc.,......if there's enough room!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou: Mary Lou, Natalie and Val! And Val - I would have packed my painting gear first but I had to finish a watercolor painting before we left - just posted it to the forum! And the painting gear will most likely need to go into my husband's suitcase because I know I'm bringing way too many pairs of shoes!!

Mea - I'll look into the Iao Needle. A friend wants to commission me to paint a picture of a maui beach at sunset with palm tress - your speciality! It's for a wedding gift for her sister-in-law. I'll be snapping lots of photos for her to choose as her reference - I may need to come to you for advice on that piece! Mahalo in advance!!
Cheers,
Sharon

So much beauty on Maui!

I enjoyed drawing the thick knee..  in Afrikaans the Dikkop, one of my favourite birds. 

Still having trouble with the bushes and twigs.

Elize,

What a cute little critter.  Nicely drawn.  Love the eye - bright and bold.

You and I need to take a twig-drawing class.  I have the same problem.

Seems we have been absent for a while again, especially when I see changes in avatars and studios on the move  8)

Ryan is back to pen and ink and seems to have an interest in sketching the birds - the feathered variety, he's still too young for the others.   ;D This is his latest attempt - he is also now doing them all freehand. Said his standing curlew was off centre so he moved the sitting one over, presumably using his imagination.
