Soon Y. Warren Workshop - Day 2


Day 2 is over!   There were more layers and more layers...


And then, the beginnings of detail... and more layers...


This is where we will start tomorrow... and get to the finish.  I am exhausted and this Internet connection is h.o.r.r.i.b.l.e!!  So, I am about to pile in bed and soothe myself with...


...  a few rows of knitting before I crash.  I am on row 73 of this Mystery Knit-A-Long and need to be finished with row 150 (gets longer each row) by Monday... not sure I'll make this deadline.  Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great weekend and I'll be catching up soon.

I think you are painting fish or sea turtle --but it's beautiful. And you are also doing the mystery knit! After all this creativity you will be ready to crash on Monday!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Your artwork is fabulous. I wouldn't know where to begin. You are so good.

Terra said...

The water and fish capture the essence of the subject, and is that beads I see in your knitting?

Ginny said...

Glad you have the knitting to unwind and relax after this. But you are doing something new and different, out of the box thinking, it is looking GREAT!!! Did everyone make this one, or is it yours?

Jen said...

Awesome! The colors are beautiful!

Kelly said...

I think it's wonderful that you're learning to do something new. It can be scary trying something different, but you grow so much from it. I think your watercolor is turning out so nice. You're such a creative person.

Donna said...

I can't even imagine drawing the fish...let alone painting them so beautifully!

Swanski said...

I love all the beads lined up ready to be knitted. I want to make a beaded shawl in my future but I have to finish my current projects first.

Deb said...

so pretty and colorful....

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

You are just too talented! The painting is going beautifully. Hope we get to see the mystery knitting.

Debbie said...

Well, Mrs. Multi-Talent, I can't wait to see the next layer(s). It's already beautiful. You clearly have the artist's eye for color. I've seen it repeatedly in your knitting and here too.

Tricia @ saving room for dessert said...

You are blessed with a beautiful talent (a whole group of beautiful talents!) and this painting is wonderful. Let me know when you are ready to sell it!

AudreyO said...

Mystery knit a long? Like you don't know what you're making? How fun :)

Melissa Miller said...

Absolutely beautiful Tanna...:)

Cindy said...

What an interesting class to take! I know you will learn so much and might even end up loving the water color art!
I am so curious as to what you're making with your Mysterious Knitting project.
Have a great day, dear lady.
Hugs, cindy

Donna said...

So beautiful my friend.....your talent is amazing. I have missed you....I have had a miracle, life is good.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I think your koi fish watercolor will look so exotic and beautiful when it is done, Tanna. What an amazing artist to meet and studio and workshop to attend..fun!

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Wow... it is looking so beautiful! Love the colors. Can not wait to see your finished piece. A mystery knit-a-long sounds like fun! :)

Julie Harward said...

You are SO talented, is there anything you can't do? This is all beautiful! :D

Debbie said...

Gorgeous, Tanna! You just ooze art! Can't wait to see the finished projects! Sleep tight. Surely you made it to bed before I. :)

T's Daily Treasures said...

Your painting is gorgeous! Are you knitting with beads? Wow! Do YOU have any idea what you are working on. Ha! Wishing you all the best. It's bedtime here. :) Tammy

Mary said...

You will never be bored. You are doing really well for someone who has not worked with water colors before Kudos. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Stacey said...

I can't wait to see the finished products!

This inspires me to set aside some time to make 'joy'; that's what I used to call it when I would have time to craft and create.

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, This is such a beautiful project. You are very fortunate to have someone encourage you to do this art with. It is always more fun when you can share a new experience. I think you should be very pleased at the beautiful results you are achieving. I am very happy for you. Blessings my dear friend. Catherine xo

Kerin said...

You make me tired ... just reading all that you are doing.
Is there ever a minute in a day that your not busy creating beautiful things ?!

I'd bet you would love my little town. Filled to the brim with all kinds of artists!

Check out Spring City Utah one of these days. Full of great old houses too :)

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Such detail and beauty! I love it!

no spring chicken said...

If you had any idea how I swoon at your talent you would go easier on me. Look at that!

Blessings to you Tanna, Debbie

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I adore the colors. Hope you are rested up!

Judy S. said...

That doesn't look like beginner's work to me! Very pretty! Love the beads you chose for your KAL mystery...are you sure it's a relaxing project?

nanny said...

You truly amaze me!!!!

I had so much fun in Dallas! Wish you, Amanda and the boys were there! I hope we can plan that someday!
