I think I want to draw this and try to paint it with watercolors.
Remember my blind contour drawing of the wooden cats that I couldn't find. Well I found them. I mean I found one of them and the hubster found the other. The one with the long tail was discovered in our bed. I guess Miss 2 had a nap with him. Here they are:
I didn't get to the non-dominant girls drawings yesterday. I went to the library to pick up a book I had asked for through MelCat and browsed the new books. I found one I wanted to read and read it in one sitting. I am really
awful good about reading and disappearing into the world of that book. It was a good day. I must remember to read once in a while because that kind of afternoon is fulfilling and enriching and good use of the imagination.
I did get more work done on my third Faces in Technicolor girl. I don't think she is done yet, but she is getting better. What do you think?
Sharon has suggested another flower to the left on her neck and I think I will do that. I also think her eyes are way too "staring". I'm not sure what to do. For one thing I think I may need to lower the top line of her eye a bit and I think I need to put a hint of a lighter color between her eye and the crease.
I also spent some time putting a bit of color on the plover from yesterday.
The most exciting thing about the plovers wasn't adding color, although that was fun! It was trying to print onto watercolor with my printer. I took a large piece of 140 lb cold press watercolor paper to my guillotine cutter and cut it to 8.5 x 11. I used Photoshop to make 4 copies of the sketch and placed them into the four quadrants of the paper. I printed using the matte photo paper setting and printed in grayscale. I am thrilled to find that I can print very nicely onto watercolor paper!
I am spending the day with my friend Nancy today. I don't know where we are going yet, but I know it will be a good time. I still don't have my car so Nancy will drive and I will buy lunch.
Before I go, I have a wonderful video to share with you:
Now I really
Gotta go! Have a great day!
