I have finally finished the first week of She Art 3 offered through Christy Tomlinson and Scarlet Lime. It was all about backgrounds. So, I created backgrounds. Now, I have no idea what I will do with all of these, but they are ready to roll. I imagine that I will paint girls on them since that is the focus of this class.
Unfortunately, the backgrounds are going to sit around for a bit. I am off to the Valley of the Sun in a couple. Just me. No kids. No husband. No cats. No dog. I will miss them all like crazy, but I will get out of this crappy weather here in Iowa and into the balmy 80's of the Southwest. I cannot wait. It actually snowed all morning and now the wind is blowing like crazy. Yeah.
Anyway, since I will be gone for a while, I will concentrate on catching up with the online drawing classes that I am taking. I can handle transporting my sketchbook, pencils, wc pencils and an aquabrush or two. I may post some things here if I have a chance. However, the lure of the pool and the sun, along with some shopping and field trips may prove to be too much. I may never return. I wonder if Rach would miss me?
This one is in the very beginning stages. It is made entirely of paper on canvas (to start, anyway). I just randomly laid out the paper and then stuck it down.
Some paint is added here and there.
And voila. The completed background. Well, complete is a relative term. I am sure that I will dink around with it.
This is actually my least favorite. Darks were the focus here. I think there is too much going on and while I like the colors, I will probably cover up some stuff later. I really hate that flower stencil on this. I like the stencil, just not here.
This one actually turned out better than I thought it would. It focuses on neutrals and is a combination of paper and paint, etc.
I believe the focus here was to be paint with stenciling and a tad bit of paper. This one is a gift for someone who just had a baby girl. It will be late because I have to figure out what I will put on it. I hope she doesn't mind.
I really like the details. I think I like doing backgrounds. Now we will have to see what happens when I add people. Gulp.
Have a great couple of weeks. Unless the Rach decides to do something amazing, I am signing off for a bit. Enjoy life and be creative.
