Conny at "Mix it Monthly" has given us an intriguing challenge.
We are to take a feather, inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci and three colours, and make a work of art.
and the three colours, mint green, grey and hibiscus.
The inspiration I've chosen from Leonardo are from these pictures,
a flying machine, a bear and various patterns. From the third picture I've used the arch and the circle in the rectangle pattern.
Intruders at the Castle!
Someone has spotted an intruder!
A flying intruder!
The Chief Guard rushes to the front door.
The castle bears come out.
What do you mean, they don't look like bears? I wouldn't say that to them if I were you.
You may think this is a flower.
It's actually a very ingenious intruder alert device
and this is not what it seems.
It's the first line in the Castle's air defence, disguised as a large bird, powered by a battery operated windmill.
The Castle is lit, the guards are out, everyone swings into action.
Some of you might be saying "But where's the feather?
Here is the feather, recoloured and transformed into the Castle's stained glass windows.
I hope you enjoyed my little story and painting.
