Feeling the Heat

Whilst many of you are in freezing cold weather patterns we are of course in Summer. Not that it has been very hot as we have had some odd weather too keeping the temperatures cool and where I am so very very windy. For my Day 8 of the painting 30 in 30 days challenge I have to painted a Camel using a reference my husband took late last year when we stumbled upon a Camel farm in the Adelaide hills. Camels in the Australin outback are in huge numbers ( the largest ferral population in the world). I enjoyed using the hot reds and golds for the background depicting the colours of the Australian desert. The heat I am feeling is trying to keep up with all the posting, blogging and commenting that taking part in a huge challenge like this creates.

  10. Sorry I am not replying to each comment as I would usually but I am just keeping up with this whole business. I really admire the artists who have done this before, its the "paperwork" side that is the challenge - never the painting
