All over the map
I've been working from photos, life and my supposed imagination in my sketchbook with watercolor pencils. I want to make another painting, but am having a hard time choosing WHAT to paint. Who knew that would be a dilemma?
This is based on an "art doll." I can imagine doing a series of feisty/funky little old ladies.
Haven't the vaguest idea of how I'd make the leaves look leafy... OR how to focus just on shapes and texture and still get the idea across. I'm wishing I could channel Wolf Kahn.
We actually had a McD soft serve vanilla ice cream tonight. Have you ever actually LOOKED at the woven pattern? I hadn't either. And drawing it is about as simple as figuring out how to launch a manned space capsule into orbit to reach the moon. huh.
These guys need a personality transfusion. The photo I worked from is awesome. Maybe I need to go meet some sheep. The one below is my attempt at a "value sketch." The dark side isn't always where you expect it.
