T stands for my quilt girl

Last week I missed being here. This month is so busy here with exams for kids in school. The academic year starts here in June and ends in march.
For "Tea" today I have a bottle of cold Pepsi. Summer is at its peak from March till May here and I wish for some snow now -:)

Today I want to share the art that I had done for the DLP  Challenge. For the third week of February, the challenge was to repeat the elements or patterns in our art. 
For that I created a quilt girl from Christy Tomlinson's She Art-4  class. Though her face didnt come out well, I love, love the quilt patterned skirt of my girl. One of my friends here named her as the Dragonfly lady-:) 


That is it for today. I am linking my post to Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday
Thank you  for  being  here

Going Undercover DLP challenge


The second challenge  for the month of February at DLP was to "Cover up the good stuff". This was not an easy project for me. Anyways this is what I came up with.  
I had a page where there was some leftover paint. With the help of  a  handmade stencil I drew the pattern and painted them.
Next, I glued the handmade stencils on the page.

I then gave a background wash using acrylics.I finished the page with some bold black outlining over the patterns.

Then came the hard part. I covered up one side of it using white texture medium. I also wrote over it with black paint and brush. 
" Good stuff can be hidden under the layers. It need not be always on the surface."

I feel this to be very true especially of human nature.

I am happy with the way how I created this page for last week's challenge. 
That is it for this week.

Late "Tea and art"

Today it is a late T for Tuesday post. But I didn't want to  miss  it. Above is a watercolor that I did sometime ago. As for my drink I'm having a cup of strong tea.

Above is a page where I had freely done some mixed media work.


I then cut it in the shape of a fish and created a water scene.

Thank you for being here. Wishing you all a lovely week

Layers...

The first theme for this month at http://www.arttothe5th.com is " Layers you will love"
This was my first layer of watercolors
From there I went on with layers of  acrylic paints, white texture medium, watercolor collage and so on.

This is how I ended my page and I love it.


A closer look at my whale.

T stands for being Thankful

Hello dear Elizabeth and all others at T stands for Tuesday. Thank you all for your kind words on my last post. I feel so blessed for being able to continue with my art.

The above chart is of a Solar System that my second grader did for the science exhibition at his school. It was held last Friday and he won third place for his creation.

The drink that I am sharing  here is an apple shake that the kids love having in this hot weather. Along with milk and apple I add one or two scoops of vanilla ice cream too.
As for my art this is a parrot that I did in watercolor  a while ago.
Wish you all have a lovely week
Warm Hugs from the south of India to all my 'Tea' friends-:)
