I fully intended to keep us with the blind contour Friday that Peggy Stermer-Cox got me started on, but I'm afraid it's fallen by the wayside. Maybe I need to set an alarm on my computer for every Friday at start up that says, "Have you done a blind contour this week?"
I had two lovely packages delivered yesterday. One via the postwoman from Paper Mojo with a wonderful assortment of decorative papers. I think I may have to include some of these in the gift package for the people who take my repurposed books class. The other was from Misterart and delivered by UPS. It contained a ream of heavyweight drawing paper, a Rotring Art Pen (that I discovered in the worst way did not have waterproof ink), and a bottle of Bombay Green India Ink.
Here is the proof that the Art Pen did not have waterproof ink:
|My perspective needs more work, the later addition of the Art Pen ink bled, and I overworked it.|
I know I still have miles to go before I can feel at all comfortable with watercolor, I am enjoying playing with it and have promised myself not to put it so far away this time. I am thinking of trying some ink and watercolor. I will just have to remember to use waterproof ink.
A couple of weeks ago, I couldn't get the treadmill to run, so I took a walk with my SLR and came home with a couple of good pix:
|Isn't he the cutest little thing? All proud and cocky standing in the road?|
|I copied this one and then used the multiply to better see the composition and colors as I really need a better understanding of clouds.|
I made a blood donation to the mosquitoes yesterday and took my camera outside to get some pix in the yard.
I just had a breakfast of Shredded Wheat & Bran with some All Bran, blueberries and kiwi. Delicious!!! I need to clean out the refrigerator and do some grocery shopping today, but first there is a good tennis match on and I think I will go watch for awhile. I'll probably watch with the sound off as I can't stand to listen to Sharapova's wail. I love to watch her play tennis, but I wish they'd muzzle her.
I hope to have something to share tomorrow.
Stay well and have fun,
