6x6 oil on panel
I am not real happy with this picture. I think the painting looks better in real life than it does on here.
Today was fun. My ellipses are more accurate and it felt more natural. I am learning to get control of my colors a little better. I got some pretty nice darks without black and I combined some of my earth colors without making mud. Hooray!!
I got brave enough to really play with that doily. It was more fun than I first imagined. This is your basic boring vase in the middle of the panel kind of composition. I hope that the reflection adds interest without getting too busy. I ended up a little less "brushy", but when you step right up to it, it looks kind of cool. This vase would look great in a more populated still life.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
