Paint Party Friday: You asked for pigs.........and more birds!

 Hello and welcome for Paint Party Friday! Thank your for all the lovely comments on my bird sketches last week. I didn't manage to visit all of you, as life got in the way, but promise to try and visit the blogs this weekend. 

So last week many of you asked for prints of the wild boar and since I fell in love with it while printing, here you are. The first two are test prints and the blue one got such a nice marble effect (paint wasn't mixed properly *LOL*).

Then I tried to make a four-patch colorfield print, like I did with the bumblebee and the lady bird some weeks ago. Messed up one of the prints big time, so I cut out the rest and maybe can make them into some cards or notes.


I was disappointed, but DH encouraged me to make another one ("Those materials don't cost a fortune, so go for it!"). Love how it turned out and maybe I will hang this in my office.


Then I ad this idea with a line of boars. It came out different than I imagined, but when it was dry, I was surprised that you can see all six pigs. It was a fun project and maybe I try another one, with the colors more sorted and the last one in black.


And of course there are more birds. I made the little wren sketch into a linocut and printed it. The test print came out fine and I colored it with watercolors. The little guy has something to say. *LOL*


Then I got inspired by a Christmas card I found online and tried my hand on a linocut of a robin sitting in a holly bush. I learnt a lot cutting this one, did test prints, cut some more and finally was happy with the outcoome. Still a lot more to learn, but here it is, with some watercolors to add interest. I wll make this one into Christmas cards.


Happy Paint Party Friday everyone and have a great weekend!
