Before I start babbling arty stuff, I'd like to dedicate my blog post today to my sister, we dont see eye to eye alot and we drive eachother bonkers, but shes one of my favourite people on this earth. At the moment shes going through a really craptastic time, so I want her to know, shes the yellow in my rainbow.., the one that helps me shine, You amaze me beyond words and I hope you find your footing real soon my darling girl.
ok onto the art!
Today in the Raven Nook, the entire desk was filled with ways to get down and creative, paints watercolours pencils pens stencils inks. My awesome plastic pink plate of cheap win for my painting palette..hey whatever works.
as you know I joined the out of the journal challenge, and this is the start of my second canvas, yes yes I know you're going but its a new week. I am behind... I personally am not loving the below work..but my mum and my man are telling me to keep going because..with highlights and little details...it might be amazing..so going on the vibe of what it 'might become' I will keep going and then do two smaller canvases to catch up.
and in the journal...I am drawing girls, who would have thunk lol. yes yes girls are what I draw the most of, but its because I'm trying to refine my skills and also find where my style is, copying others style is whats helping me try and discover what I want my style to be...maybe one day I'll know because I am still unsure.
still trying the Art Geeks skin paint recipe and I'm trying to refine that too lol as she was again too purple so as I go along it will get easier and maybe just become second nature. Practice makes pretty.
and the highlight of my week... is finding a pair of almost new docs for sale for $50 on a trade swap sell group for Inverell on facebook. I squeeled when I went to visit the girl who owned them and they fitted! I adored my docs back through highschool and uni, I wore them for almost 6 years straight till they fell apart lol, so I cant wait to see what adventures I'll have in these.
as you can see Ive already worn them and gotten foundation makeup on the souls from cleaning up little miss's mess.
take care my dears, I'll be back tomorrow with some more of my art
