My Creative Space - shiny shiny
Varnishing is my favourite part of the whole process of painting. I love my paintings to be glossy and shiny, it really makes the colours pop. And it's a signal that it's finished, ready to go out into the world.
My Mum helped with the girls this week, so I could fit in a few sessions of painting for the Carnival of Flowers exhibition that's coming up. With limited time, I paint like lightening! But I did totally redo the butterflies during the process of this one (I love acrylics - nothing has to be forever) and this butterfly (can't remember the name) is one that can actually be found in Australia.
I can't vouch for the other one though. I think he's a visitor from out of town.
