HDH050 - Foul Flutterings - Batty

Another week at haunted house design with another great challenge, so love their stuff.  Sorry haven't had a chance to comment on any projects this week but it has been HECTIC.  My two youngest have hardly slept all week and during the day they are super moany.  Anyway I painteed this  with great difficulty hence why it is not the best work you will ever see.  I had my one year old stuck to my hip, my three year old whinging cos she is keeping us up at night and she is also tired and my five year old harrassing me to play computer games with him so it wasn't the easiest task I have ever undertaken and decided to leave as is. 



I painted the bg with twinkling h20's firstly with a turquoise then with a lovely plum colour, then painted with acrylics over the canvas.  I hate painting on canvas but I have no hardboard.   I started the girl (batty just like the haunted design team hehe)  but my hubby said her jaw was like a big mans and had to try and sort that.  It is supposed to be bat's wings over her face but didn't come off too good.   I don't think you can make it out but the black has lots of shimmery eyes from all of the bats.  It is so frustrating when you start something and can't do it properly. 

Will try and get some time to comment tonight.

Okay, first of all, stop asking your husband what he thinks of your art! He sounds like a tough critic. Everything you create is amazing!
And the fact that you had kiddos hanging off of you the entire time, I'd say this is really
spectacular. Gorgeous work.

p.s. The little bat at the top of the painting is adorable! He should be his own painting all by himself!
