Myltia Series - Always
As a mother, I remember holding my babies like this. I would listen to their breathing, feel their chest expanding and contracting and just smell the wonderful aroma of baby. Moments like this are pure life. I think every mother I ever talked to remembers moments like these and smiles. Motherhood is Always.
I got a new webcam for Christmas. This is the first time I have recorded myself drawing. It was a fun experiment and I think I will give this another shot. I used Windows Movie Maker to edit the video. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
This project has me very excited. This is the first in a series I am doing that I will call Myltia. I mentioned her story in my last post when I was doing some idea sketches. As I was working up my plan, I could not decide on any particular media. I wanted to do something that captured the fragile nature of the moment. The more I thought about it, the more difficult the decision was. Each method has distinct advantages and aesthetic appeal. That is when I decided to do this in three different styles.
I will use the same drawing and finish it in three different ways. The first, Always, will be stippled or done in pointillism. The second will be done in graphite. I will call that one Be. I am still deciding on the media the third will be done in, but it will be called Together. I haven't decided on framing yet. I have considered matting them together in one long frame. I have also considered having them in attached frames. I think together they will tell a story. I hope they will anyway.
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
