Last night just before going to bed, I decided to do my Friday assignment (she actually doesn't expect you to do it on Friday, you can add your link on her site any day). I just happened to have a foot at the end of my leg just waiting to be drawn. Of course I took off my slipper first. Here is what I ended up with:
|Looks like I am playing Beast to Little Miss 3's Belle :-)|
I was so surprised by how short and wide I'd made it, I decided to try drawing it looking back and forth from the foot to my paper and here is what I have:
|Looks like I may have overcompensated for the width of the blind contour.|
I think this one is a bit narrower than my actual foot, but it isn't too bad. I still am not used to drawing with pen. It looks a bit messy to me.
I finally made room for my watercolors and decided to do a really loose painting yesterday. I really enjoyed playing, but wasn't very happy with the result. I reminded myself that sometimes it isn't the destination, but the journey that is important.
|I decided it was too unformed, so added the ink lines. I may have made it worse.|
I had a wonderful surprise this morning when I opened my email. The same artist who purchased the "I Dare You" journal has also purchased "Under Mad Anthony's Banner". I feel good knowing it is going to a good home.
I think I told you I am taking a drawing class with Monica Zuniga. I need to download more videos, but can't do it from home. I think I may visit my daughter today and download them at her house. Other than that, I am free to do as I please today. I may try to make a small 2-needle coptic.
For now, I need another mug of coffee and then I'd better call the daughter to see if my plan works for her.
Thank you for visiting and Happy Holidays to all!
