I was beginning to think I would never get back on this site :P Well, I couldn't get much done over the last couple of days anyways. Sigh.

We all have those days :)
More 1 point..

I have to agree--there are lots of tutorials. I am sure I have read and seen hundreds over the last five years or so. Sometimes those art books I got go into them as well. Most of them are not...

Sign pens are really interesting. If you can find the type with a brush-like tip, it really adds effects for the lines from thickening to thinning and you can play around with swishes and stops. I...

Words are fascinating. I loving checking the etymology of words as well. It is a real challenge to try and define the words for English Language Learners. Did you see the root for those words? I...

Talk about luck! I found a block of wood and hinge while looking for stuff for still lifes. :D I just have to cut it in half! Amazing the stuff I find in this old house :)
Okay, I decided to...

Sorry about yesterday ^_^; Feeling much better so put in some extra effort in the painting and did two lifes. I really want to have more time to paint and draw.
Planes. Kind of. I got...

I love finding the weaknesses and working on them. Sorry about this round. I got home from work and crashed immediately--was super tired. Still a little off, but will work on some art tonight...

I'll keep trying and try different methods until my brain breaks and finally accepts it :) Everyone seems to have different ways that work for them.
Okay, piggy-backing on that idea---my hand...

Prisms have clearly defined planes whereas the face does not (for the most part). I understand what planes are and how they function---it is that transition from objects that are rounded and smooth....
So first, A FB friend and I were talking, and it led to her asking me to design her next tattoo. We went back and forth on the details and imagery. I am honored that she found my art worthy to wear...

I meant on the palette :) I felt rushed to finish in a bad way because of how fast they dry and the fact that if you don't wash them quickly, you have a piece of stone stuck to your palette. Now I...

Yeah, that makes sense. My struggle comes when the object is rounded When the planes are clear like my inhaler, here, then it is easier for me. Well, that and I was still figuring out how to use...

Half-way through the planes, I had an idea of how to make the acrylic gouache work better. Well, at least I am figuring it out. :) Not many things that have clear planes around here. May need to...

Yay for getting a palette! :D I totally understand that feeling of not having time. Yay for upcoming weekend!
I have been ignoring detailed patterns for now so I can focus on the larger stuff. ...

I managed to also lay out cheat sheets for my acrylic gouache paints that I have as well. I need to get brown next time it is in stock. No really dark shades for shadows, but that just forces me to...

Thanks! I think as I gain confidence, it will get easier. :)
I am sorry. I couldn't get anything done today. I will make up for it this weekend and post tomorrow.

Planes. There are several things I need to change--first, my paper. No more computer paper for painted projects like this. Great for abstracts---not so great for this. Second, I really need to...
July 7th, 2014
And here is where the real fun begins XD I know the abstracts we did earlier are a great tie in to this, so I used that mind frame to work. This is going to take time and lots of practice, though. ...

:) That or my scanner is really old and really cheap. Vermillion seems to be the only one that doesn't scan well with similar shades so far. I guess we shall see. But yes, I am getting a lot out...
July 5th, 2014
View finder done and done. My scanner really brightens color images so I might take photos instead or adjust the brightness in photoshop...at least when we start painting still lifes.
July 4th, 2014
Thank god everyone on FB is all excited about the Fourth, or I would have forgotten about it! Enjoy the weekend, you guys. I will just keep on trucking.
My abstract. Decided to play with...

Ladies and gentlemen, I have many shades of green in my acrylics! Maybe I should do a picture of Link hehe. Gonna hit the store and buy some of those other shades from the other brand and see if I...
