Toys and Gift Wrapping - Three Works in Progress

Today I was in the Still Life class at the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio in the morning and sitting the Gallery in the afternoon.

There were a wide variety of things to paint and I decided to do three small sections of the display.














Don't Drink and Drive 1

The first was of a bottle of wine, a small snowman, a teddy bear and a couple of toy cars with a gold ribbon running between them.














Gift Wrap 1

The second was of various gift boxes and bags with a roll of gold ribbon.















Santa's Bag 1

The third on was of Santa's bag filled with toys and wrapped gifts.

As more work is completed on each of the three paintings, I will post them at a later date.

Hung Up to Dry - A Work in Progress

This is a larger version of one of the sketches I did last month in the Still Life class at KAGS.

It was of a teddy bear on a clothes line with its arm tangled in the shoulder strap of a corset.

I thought it would make an interesting painting and will probably get a chuckle out of many people who see it, as it certainly caused a lot of laughter in the class.

I will post this piece at a later date once I have completed the outline drawing.
