Another great weekend (thank you Bob for the time to play with art); lots of unfinished bad art. Did some jewelry design with Liz, played with watecolor pencils, and covered myself with wood stains. Overall, a weekend dedicated to art and the pursuit for happiness. Charlie was a big help with the art. He guarded my colored pencils, ensuring that no one could touch them without his help. I love the picture of him sleeping in the middle of my art supplies. Capturing this picture as a potential oil painting could be the best art I did over the last weekend.
So what did I manage to do with with almost unlimited free time. Design a bit of jewelery, create a water color pencil painting of a tree that needs rework with regular colored pencils, add some color to a play with materials painting, and cover myself with stain. Thank you Bob for making the time possible. Without your support, I could not play at being an almost full time art student.
It is fascinating the difference between different brands of watercolor pencils. I have decided that a small set of pental pencils is better than a big set of derwents pencils because the colors are so much more vibrant.. The worm was made with shavings from the small pental pencils. The background was very heavy derwent.. The tree below failed in part because I tried to make the tree vibrant with pencils designed for subtle. Well, truth be told, there were a few misdrawn lines as well and with watercolor pencils—one mistake and the drawing is ruined. Even regular colored pencils could not help recover the picture. Finally, the jewelry below. Had lots of help with that. Liz dessigned and made the earings for me. The crow necklace is my designbut I used a new kind of wire and it has already broken. The last necklace is holding, that was a gift from a friend where I added the rock.
