Thursday started off here cold, misty and damp, so my morning walk was rather chilly at the beginning, but still nice. In the afternoon the sun came came out and lured me out for another walk, so I clocked up 17.000+steps again, another 8 miles. But I must admit I am always super hungry when I get back, and had to eat carrot cake to replenish my energy levels.
I had fun visiting my feathered friends, as always.
I love how these two are snuggling together, they let me get right up close, too!
Waiting for the boat.
Once again, all the gulls are looking in one direction, except for an odd man out in the middle, he was watching me.
For Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin, I have painted a set of two canvases, each 15x7 1/2". I painted the backgrounds with a warm cream, and used various shades of brown for the shading and framing. I used my diamond stencil from Diane with structure paste, and highlighted it with cinnamon Stickles. I used my own stencils for the men, and drew them with charcoal, adding a bit of colour with some brush strokes and using punchinella as a stencil. I used pastel chalks to add more colours. I have called this set He-Art ShAdow Men. I am linking to Simon Monday Challenge - 'A' is for....and to Country View Challenges, Monochrome.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by, your visits and comments are always much appreciated!
