CEDs 317-318...and new WC pencils!
...headcold...so might not make sense...but here goes...I started my piece (CED#317) last night somewhere along the way...passed out from this nasty cold I have managed to get...woke up at 12:30 at the foot of my bed and just called it a night.
Moving forward...today. Feeling a little better but not 100% by any means. Two positives...my new watercolor pencils arrived today for one. I had all intentions of unwrapping them and playing...but then I thought it would be better to wait til I am not blowing my nose every two seconds...no need to contaminate the new fancy art pencils. Another positive, got a nice message from someone via my art FB page, and even sold a piece of art! Yay! Oh yeah, and I finished CED #318, too.
And now...just some ramblings...boy, I sure do love these fashion illustrations. I have been working on my speed and working in a gestural manner, which I love and I feel will help me if I ever live-sketch at a fashion show (sigh, eyes twinkling...maybe one day...) But at the same time...my hands kind of itch to do some more detailed drawing. So I might do, uh...another side project...and just do a couple of detailed pieces for fun? Maybe?
But how will I label these? OMG...girl stop. (talking to myself here, of course) Deep breath. Will worry about that later, but I think that is something that I would like to add in this month. Now, the smart thing would be to gradually get more detailed with my daily pieces as the month progresses and leave my fashion illustrations in the more loose format...
Another thing that I am thinking of is revisiting my butterflies...lot's to think about!
But for now.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....
