Still getting to grips with how this technology all works. Updated the original Sophie page but don’t think it worked by letting you know there was an update. Here she is so far. Amazing what you see in a photo. Good idea to take a photo before deciding if your painting is complete. If it’s not something will jump out at you.
I started the week by telling myself I would do something nice every day. Today it was a bike ride in the sunshine. Finding a broken wall I sat down to draw. Although I didn’t get as far as paint thought I would share
Why do we look but not see? I was happy drawing the building. No rush, no time limit, I have no excuse except my seeing let me down. Look at the windows and see if you can spot the mistake.
I got a chance to talk to Sophie last night. Still a way to go, but feel a bit better for having spoken to her for a bit.
I haven’t entirely been doing nothing. By this afternoon everyone of my classes for this week will be uploaded and available on my website. That’s unless the internet goes slow again…..
Hot news just in from Julie,
I like to just go for it with a pen, but my tip is, if it’s a bit scary just use dots to roughly indicate your picture, they easily get lost within all other drawing. I did this when I was trying to get going with art and found it helpful. 😁
People are scared of the pen but if we make friends with it, it will be your friend for life.
I really enjoyed drawing my Moroccan door last night as part of Weston’s weekly tutorial. This morning Julie What’sapped and said how she had enjoyed watching the tutorial and drawing the door. So, as inspiration to everyone I am attaching my door, and the first part of Julie’s self challenge, a bee drawing in pen.
All my classes are now online. I have just completed the venice painting which one of the classes. It is aimed to be a two week project and is exactly what we would have done in class. Along with the coffee. The first part is live on my website.
Apart from preparing the paintings ready to video and upload for this weeks online classes, I decided to complete the monochrome boats that some of us were busy with when we moved online. The tutorial didn’t show the end product so gave myself an hour this morning to complete it. The class involved two different pictures of boats which we painted in monochrome but in two different ways. Here is the end result.
Julie keeps an ideas book. She has sent me 3 pages from it. With bees as a topic she has set herself a challenge. To use these images in 3 different ways. Julie we look forward to seeing the results.
Can’t bake unless I start an online delivery service, so have started catch up on outstanding commissions. Thought I would share a step by step of this little girl I am doing. Started last night and so far have spent about 4 hours on it.
