I slept a full 8 hours. Amazing. Worked on CED #203 some more by the pool, starting to 'break' the circle a bit...will see where this goes...also started #204...then it was time to come in and get ready for a trip down south for some family time. (aka, 'an excuse to eat yummy Italian food')
But I took my art with me. I don't think I have done this before...but I don't think I will ever not have it with me. A sketchbook, something to bead, a little bag with some pencils...something to keep creatin'.
After food and family time...brought the two pieces back. I just finished them both up. I work so methodically...start with my pencil sketch in Graphitone...then use water and a brush to soften the lines...then do more drawing with a darker value...repeat at least once...then draw the 'halo'...add watercolor...paint the gold...add glitter...add each individual crystal...every drawing has been done the same way, in this order. I like order and repetition...almost like some kind of armature, or scaffolding in which I can lose myself in the act of making the art.
I am rambling. Better call it a night...got to teach an art class tomorrow (THANK YOU to Karen from KNMA for thinking of me to teach this week!) Pop Art is the theme...I am thinking that a Thiebaud cupcake lesson would be great for this group of little ones...I mean, who doesn't love cupcakes, right? Exactly.
Side note, I am starting to see my summer ending. Oh well, at least I get to teach ART! Yay!
