Yes, I am still here. This drawing thing does take some time. Even though these are not portrait drawings, I still take a long time. Plus I'm trying to use various art mediums. Let me catch you up to date.
I drew my lovely "Lavender Girl" and collaged a paper napkin around her.
Her hair was done with watercolor ink which did not do well over the glue that I collaged with. What to do??? I decided to gesso over her hair and I actually liked the lighter color. I added a flower over her ear.
I took these photos in different locations. I apologize for the poor quality but she was too big to fit my scanner.
I love her little face. The hair is not my fave but for now I'm satisfied. Jane Davenport's class is all about having fun and drawing faces more stylistically. I think mine will be going to "Mermaid School". She has that look. I know I will be able to turn these out faster with practice. I do love drawing them so I don't really care that it takes so much time....it's really rather meditative. I got lost in "Lavender Girl".
On another note, I worked on my sunflower painting. Erin taught me a few tricks for "fixing" what I might not like.
I think I like it much better now.
I'm wishing you all a beautiful July 4th and all the friends and family and FOOD that goes with it!!
