Completed watercolor painting of a fox (unfortunately too large to scan):
He’s a pretty handsome fellow.
Been working up a huge pile of works in progress over the summer and I need to guilt myself into finishing them:
Started a peacock painting with acrylics sometime last month. I hope to get more comfortable with painting -since I seem to literally more of a pencil pusher.
Still working on my Handbound book project. I’m thinking of fixing the cover with some cool stencil or something. Maybe a cool branchy tree. I’m also gearing up to write down text on page 13:
Also working on my very first sculpture with some exceedingly old original scupley clay. If it had an expiration date, it’s probably way past it by now. It’s consistency it a bit chalky and I’m not sure if its supposed to be like that or it’s spent too many hours in a stuffy room. Either way, I’m hoping to get the feet done, smooth out the face and body, and put a pair of wings on him before baking.
And on the side I have my good ol’ standby- traditional art with pencil, paper, and micron pens for inking. It’s a scaly, two-eyed creature. The more I draw scales the easier it gets. Sure it’s a little tedious, but with a bit of patience, the end result is always impressive.
Hopefully I’ll be getting it all done soon.
Still working on it. Still.
Eventually they’ll just have to find someone with more talent and time to finish it. There’s some mistakes on the lower body, and I’m generally unhappy with it. Painting on the wall is so alien to me, I don’t think I’ll ever make it a regular hobby.
It’s kind of like a bad saga where the characters go nowhere. I truly resent painting on walls now. Tomorrow I will be painting on the bottom half of the dragon…
I painted a ceramic bowl (for the first time) last week and it goes towards a settlement house and food for the poor. It looked like this:
Then after a firing in a kiln it became:
I was told I had the right amount of glaze applied, but I am severly dissapointed in the black. It’s now greenish and totally not intended. D:
