Day two of daily sketches
Today was the second day of school. I made a new Pandora list today that I named 80's Girls. If you are not into cheesy 80's female pop artists, don't click that link. Again, I grabbed the first image of a person that came up on the stock images list at DeviantArt. It is a bit of a nostalgic day. The music is up loud and blasting as I go about my chores. A family of seven creates a lot of laundry and chores to do.
I am telling myself that this year I am going to push myself a little harder this year. I want to reach beyond the daily drill of doing studies from pictures and studies from life. I have made it a point to get the rest of my life organized enough to be able to focus more on what I want to do, instead of what I forgot to do.
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
