I was starting to get worried that I wouldn’t get anything done today. Today was a good day to do something creative since my hands weren’t hurting or shaking as bad but of course my creative juices were sapped. So I ended up re-doing my Christmas Zentangle on watercolor paper. I have a bigger picture that I’m working on but it has become a challenge for me. I’ve never successfully drawn any kind of animal before. I’ve attempted to draw my dog blue before and that turned out scary! I can draw people faces well but animal faces…. bad! So I’m going to work on this for a while and see what I can do. I’ve made the picture I want to paint my desktop so I can study it better. Maybe seeing it more often will help too.
I am thinking about this year’s Christmas cards.
I’m thinking this would be cute if I can get it just right. I think I might add a little something to this but I don’t have what I want to use right now. I have to add that my camera really brightens up the yellow. It is much more subtle and blended then it appears here. The “lights” on the sides of the tree are also soft and blended and here they look like harsh blops of paint. I’m kinda happy with this though.
You know, I’m finding it is really helpful to take a picture of what I’ve painted and look at it on-screen. I often see details that I want to change or add. Or I get a whole new idea and start over again. I guess its kinda like looking at your art in the mirror or seeing it from “the other side” (observer side/vs. artist)
I’m glad I’m doing this :O)
