As far as days go...ugh. Living in Florida, when it isn't sunny I think I automatically go into a mini-depression when the sun isn't out. And today...it wasn't. Rain all day. Ick.
So, when I got home...after soup and a nap I was ready to create.
For this rainy evening I focused on finishing some pieces. I started a figurative sketch yesterday at Jessie's so I worked on that piece. I really like the combination of detail pencil drawing with the watercolor...which is pretty light and contrasts against the dark pen line. Add some hearts, straw-blown hair and small droplets of color and it's done.
Also on the drawing table (haha, get it?); finishing up my CED piece for today. I prepped several of these to keep me from stressing out, so today selected one to work on, my focus was on embellishing the work. I started to introduce a little pink into this one, sticking with the saturated jewel tones that I love so much...brought in some stained glass-like line work...added feathers and some sparkles. Number thirty-seven...done.
Now I am calling it a night, the Ott Light is off.
Side note...a second commission is in the works, a portrait...which may lead to a group portrait...The Avett Brothers this Friday...and another art event at my place is set for this weekend.
Now if the rain will go away and the week will go by fast I will be all set.
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
