I have not done any art for over a week now and I’m going a little crazy. Plus I’m surviving on about two hours sleep. No answers to any challenges this week 🙁 I’m so sad that I’ve missed them, particularly Paint Party Friday as I was looking forward to that one.
Okay, that post title sounds like a bad movie sequel, but hey, we have arrived at the last colour for this nine part challenge series. EDIT: Uh, not the last, the second to last because I can’t count.
I spent tonight tidying up my art corner in order to fit the primed boards inside the house. Since we had children and lost the two spare rooms, everything that didn’t migrate to the rubbish bin ended up out in the hobby room. The hobby room which houses two computers, a display case, four bookcases, two cupboards, six desks, a filing cabinet, a set of art drawers and a sewing machine cabinet, is starting to become crowded. I’m having the problem of needing to put away things that have no place to go. And since I’ve been neglecting things like housework so I can art…well, let’s say it wasn’t a pretty sight.
When I came to do the red centres of the flowers (around the yellow eye), I had to switch from watercolour pencil to watercolour paint because as with my pastel sticks, my red watercolour pencils are annoyingly hard and often scratch the surface of the paper. Do any of you ever encounter this problem? I find it very frustrating, to the point I can’t use my reds.
Just a quick call out to find out if anyone is still participating in this challenge. If you are and would like me to continue posting it, please comment to this post.
I’m rather behind on the challenges myself, so I need to know if anyone still would like to keep the challenge running.
It may rain, the sky full of grey cloud cutting off the sun. But for every raindrop there is a refracted rainbow. Don’t miss the beauty for the water in your eyes. ~ Gumnut Logic, 31 Oct 2005
A new colour for the Spectrum Square challenge.
Do you paint? Do you want to paint more? Here is the challenge for you.
Far, far out in space,
Where stars burn and comets race,
Is Planet Zog, a little place
With a tiny moon keeping pace…
Such is the bad piece of poetry that started the book I haven’t written about Splog and Blog.
I have to make more of an effort to do artwork every day. I’m finding that I’m blogging every day, but not so much doing the art I want to blog about, so, uh, yeah, I need to rewire my working schedule.
The Creative Every Day challenge has helped me out a lot in the past, but over the last couple of months, I’ve let it slip. I think I need to put a bit more effort in to keep it up (says me at ten past midnight).
So, what have I managed to do this past week?
