In my quest for self education in the area of portraiture, I once again made an attempt to scribble down a face portraying emotion. Since I’m hip deep in the Avengers fandom at the moment, I took a scene from a fanfic I read recently and drew inspiration from that.
On Friday July 6, 2012, 10 – 11.30am, I will be holding a bubble painting workshop at the Unley Town Hall, Oxford Terrace, Unley, South Australia. I’ll be there in my daggy painting clothes with a bunch of 7-13 year olds exploring bubble printing and the art we can create from it. It is part of a school holiday program, but for those of you don’t have children in that age bracket, you are surely welcome as spectators. Drop in and say hi 😀
Just a quick checkin on my progress. I didn’t do much last night even though I have a zillion things that need to be done, so it is my own fault that I’m running behind.
On Tuesday I had a period of feeling vaguely okay and the weather was sunny, so I let the kids outside and quickly slapped down the basics for this painting. Today, only sheer determination dragged me off the couch to finish it. The result is the most slapped together hack of a painting I have ever done, full of faults, but it illustrates the idea.
Last night I sat down and played with some cut up paper and some inktense pencils (still love them). I can’t show you the entire piece (though it isn’t finished yet, so not really much to see anyway) as it is for another challenge which has a specific reveal date, but here is a sneak peek.
Today was filled with work and a mad dash to an important deadline…which I managed to make with ten minutes to spare…YEAH! If I wanted to be pedantic, I could say that creating an online newsletter and playing with graphics all days fulfills my creativity quota for today, but since I’m allotting this challenge to my artwork outside of work…well, not so much.
