watching paint dry
Sketchbook revival has saved my sanity. I learn something from each teacher, especially from Tamara LaPorte who taught me to draw little villages last year. This year it was expressive birds.
I love the colors, the free way we approached painting them, and the details I added.
I am very behind on the lessons but I am now doing two a day. I also took advantage of Amber Bonicci's (from Hawaii) extra lessons, combining spirituality (meditation) and art. They were intense and she asked a lot of hard questions to lead us to self awareness
In this lesson we learned 5 ways to add whimsical words to your paintings
this architect taught us how they approach drawing, and how to loosen up your whole arm to draw from any angle... how trees can be implied and rocks, etc. So cool. Also a little challenging to sketch a man... what makes someone look male or female?? I think he came out okay.
This person had us do large sweeping curving lines. Then fill each one with a different texture.
I have magazine pages, napkins, stamps made from TP cardboard centers, and inking.
Her technique was like my quilting.
I liked putting gluestick inside the lines, pressing paper on, then tearing away the excess.
so much to learn....
