I am trying to spend as much time in the art room as I can these last few days before driving to the "far north" with my Mom. I am also planning to take some supplies with me, but haven't decided which ones or how much yet.
For today, I used a drawing from "Art Projects for Kids" by Kathy Barbro to make a practice drawing so that I can do another with the first grader who is getting off the bus at my house on Friday. She loves to do art and has told me that she prefers it if I have a plan when she gets here.
Here is my little elephant:
I need to come up with a way to make the tusks stand out, though. I don't want to introduce her to masking fluid yet, but maybe we will make a template in the shape of the tusks and use them to keep the area a bit more white.
I am pretty sure her picture will be much more exciting and interesting than mine and I will share it with you if she doesn't mind.
For today, I need to go into town to shop a bit for the trip north and mail off my zendalas to Janet. Oh, freebird, thank you so much for your input. I did add color (black actually) to the one spoke that was left white and I like how it looks. I looked at the first one again and decided that I like it for the flow of it. I see it as some, more, most. I don't know if I am explaining it well, but I like the way it draws my eye across from least to most.
I think I need to go get on the treadmill and then get in the shower, grab a bite and get this ole body moving. So much to do so little time.......
