Welcome to the year of the Rooster! Aquarellista style...

Since 2018 we're in the Chinese year of the rooster. The  experts say that "the year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count. You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning love, money, and business. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures." In other words - be careful out there while wearing something smart!

The Aquarellistas let themselves be inspired by this proud and beautifully dressed bird. Have a look at the different styles and note that all pictures have something very personal to tell!!

 André's awsome rooster, certainly looks its best  and carefully but surely steps forward...

 Elia B.'s fabulous rooster, so well done (Note the symbolic blood on his crown). 

Sandra's rooster carefully steps into the new year - fluffy as he is, there's clearly a lot of strength

 A lovely couple by Michele C

Sturdy Rooster -young I think, and a bit shy- with an absolutely amazing background by Birgitta

Agnès painted and drew this colourful proud example, as always with a smile (or a wink)

Beautiful colours, powerful and with its feet firmly on the ground, in recognizable Liz-style

Apart from the Roosters, there were other projects  going on!
The last Albino paintings were finished:
Cathie's incredibly fragile and delicate Albino boy. Look at that hair...
Albino ladybug, such an original choice and what a strong composition with the leaf, the dewdrops and the red variety. By Celina - who else!

There were exercises:
Background-Foregroud-Details exercise by Michele F. The patterns work out very well - they're almost like tattoos!

Marbles-with-shadows exercise by Brigitte. Great to do but not the easiest yet Brigitte definitely nailed it.

And then of course the ever surprising 'miscellaneous':

Almost finished still life by Carol. Better than the original. Impressive.

Awesome picture of girl with shawl. Well done Sylvie!

 The finished scarecrows by Agnès. So cute! (visit her blog for a better picture)

 And witness the start of a new delicate artwork by Cathie! More next week, can't wait!
