So...the April Creative Every Day Theme is 'Language. Per my post in my regular blog, I am going to go with the theme for the next ANE show, 'Pop Art'. Right now going to start off with drawing and painting combos...will see where it goes!
Update, April 10, 2012...started getting a little more textural with yesterday's piece...utilizing modeling paste and the polymer clay 'sweets' that I made last weekend to embellish the hair...so far I like the effect...hoping to have the texture incorporate more into the overall work in the future pieces, not just in the hair...also working with the color changing on the modeling paste when it dries...uncharted territory for me...
Update April 15, 2012...gotta start working in some fibers...
Update April 16, 2012...alright...looks like I am getting away from the literal 'sweets' and focusing on the textures...I am taking the lead from the textures created by the modeling paste...how to add actual texture (i.e. beaded felt pieces) to create a tangle of wonderful hair. Maybe I will add the sweets back in later...but for this week, it's all about the texture!
Update, April 30 2012...all done. Overall, I am happy with the work. I can see a definite division in the series around piece #106...and...I think somewhere along the line my numbering got off. Not sure, going to try and fix it...or might not worry about it.
