We had rain for most of last night. I worked quickly while listening to soft rain drops and an occasional boom of thunder. Another start from weeks ago.
I had no clue what to do next, where to take it. I just wanted to paint. Grab a brush and get in the zone.
Two lines became a vase. And where there is a vase, well, you get the idea. The first layers were acrylics. I added Neocolor and more acrylic.
After I scanned the image, I felt it was top-heavy. So I made some changes in Photoshop. I added some of the background around the blooms. I tried several times, in different areas. But I wasn’t thrilled with this either.
NOW, I can see that I have rows of blooms. is that what I don’t like? Next step, I think I am going to go back in, and make larger blooms. Fewer, blooms.
More late Christmas/Birthday loot. Our Christmas celebration was this past weekend. These were from my brother and his wife. The book covers five different mediums, with beginning to advanced techniques. I had a hard time putting it down! Just looked on Amazon, and there is a companion book for painting as well.
As we were in Phoenix, I had the chance to visit Jerry’s Artarama. If you are on their email list, they offer a free gift for your birthday. Thought it would be colored pencils, or markers. Turned out to be a 4 x 6 hardbound sketch book. How cool is that! I also picked up a few more Neocolors, a bottle of alcohol ink, watercolor paint, Three 6 x 6 Da-Vinci coarse textured panels, and 10 4 x 4 mixed media panels. Yay for seasonal sales!
Color me excited!
