I'm not very good at blogging as I go, so this is going to be the start, hopefully, of a better blogging phase! Last week I used the same technique of oil on paper to do a quick project for a Puffin Post magazine competition. It was such a great brief, as the only requirement was that it should include puffins. I decided to paint a party in the sky, where the puffins who are very fluffy, are bobbing on a fleat of balloons and edging towards a fish-filled cake. I loved adding details such as the goldfish in the tea cups and the crab on the baloon string. Its sometimes just so great to paint something thats purely a happy scene.
