I started a new painting as I wait for the last one to dry.
While Impermanence dries I’m moving on to a redo of a painting of Winnie.
I’m starting another painting and today was drawing and planes work.
We had a very busy day today with lots of important errands.
I really dislike this painting. it’s not going well at all.
For the beginning of my art session this morning I chose to work on the Rajiv One painting again.
Back at it today with lots of time on painting, CreateQuest, Jansen and everything else.
Today I was effective in all creative areas but I also took some time for myself.
Another very productive day on this painting and everywhere else.
Half of my art session today was mixing paint but I got a lot done quickly.
Another super hot, productive and effective day.
Today was a super effective day in my AM and afternoon art session.
Moving forward on the paper cross painting in extreme heat.
Most of the session this morning was spent mixing new colors.
Lots of success today with the Paper Cross painting.
Moving forward on the Paper Cross painting armed with knowledge and a new color wheel.
Today I try to figure out if neutralizing a color with gray is better than with it’s complimentary.
My homemade Munsell neutral value scale chips are done.
I have plans and then the more I learn the more I change my plans.
Today’s art session was very fun! I worked on Paper Triangle and began an illustration.
I’m gone far enough with this painting for now until it’s dry.
Work took up most of my time today but I still made time for art, at least an hour.
Because all of the other paintings are still wet I’ve started a fourth painting in tandem.
Wow! Super busy day today but I still got some art in.
The “Knot” painting is not dry. I don’t think it will be dry for a week so I’m starting on “Resurgence”.
I changed direction on this painting a bit today by planning to make it more than just a study.
I’ve finished my drawing of Westley and Buttercup from the Princess Bride movie. It’s not my best drawing in the Fandom Fitness series, but I…
Working on Westley’s sword arm and hand today after most of my day spent at work.
It’s amazing how just adding in a few sharp lines and darker values will change an area from a blob of unfinished to an object…
It’s interesting how some small changes can bring a drawing closer to finished than hours of larger work.
Letting go this morning with lots of charcoal I filled in most of the lower half of my Princess Bride drawing.
My energy today has been sapped because work started in the morning, my normal art time.
More work on Westley’s face today. I think his portrait will come together much faster.
I think that Buttercup’s face is working well now after some small changes to her eyes and the values of her face.
Struggling with structure and softness within Buttercup’s face.
Adding more charcoal to the paper and trying to keep it smooth for a feminine face.
A shorter session this morning focused on drawing corrections and accuracy.
Today was supposed to be all about getting the drawing refined for the whole drawing but I was seduced by detail.
My second attempt at drawing Westley and Buttercup Princess Bride with hopes that this one will go much better.
I’ve finished the Rosa Parks drawing after working her dress and more form in her head.
You can call this “pick and shovel” work. Lots of filling in with value but no subtlety.
The challenge for Rosa Parks dress is trying to instill form into a very dark area with subtle variations.
The basic values are set for Rosa Parks face which makes the bulk of this drawing done.
I was able to progress very fast on Rosa Parks this morning.
An easy day of art. An easy day overall!
I wasn’t able to commit a lot of time on the start of my Rosa Parks drawing today but I made progress.
Another focused AM art session with Steve Irwin and his crocodile.
