I’ve worked on the pier a little more along with the leaves. I added some background contrast to pop the foreground. Still a lot to go. Did I say I wanted to finish this in a week??! Haha! You just can’t put a time limit on these things. I love the problem solving part of art. You work on one area and that presents the next. Let’s just say, I’ll stop with the time limits now. I just wanted to show I haven’t given up on this one. Art does take some perseverance to keep yourself going back to it even when you hit periods of boredome. I assume most people are this way, especially creative people and especially in our day and age of instant gratification. More camp to come.
I started roughing in the color the last couple days. I’m a little behind where I want to be. I’m using Yarka watercolors. There’s still quite a bit to do to make everything show up how I’d like. Stay tuned…
Today I’m working on a sketch for a small watercolor. It will be 5” x 5”. If I like how it turns out, I’ll be making limited edition giclee prints. But for today, here’s the sketch. I’ll give progress updates all week. The goal is to complete this one this week.
I have tried this blog thing a handful of times before, but will try again now. I plan to publish some type of work each day. I have a little backlog, so this should be easy at first.
Like most people, there is your work and then there is the work you wish was your work. This blog will hold little glimmers of work that I start and then get sidetracked by real life. It will be mostly colorful, fun things to look at with quite a lot of randomness. This is the cliche case of start-a-blog-so-I-can-have-a-dedicated-focus…we’ll see :). It will also be somewhere I can post with no pressure or concern for likes. I do art to get all these ideas out of my head.
Lately, I’ve been working with metal, namely stamping and shaping. Here are some bracelets I put up on Etsy recently. My traffic is pathetic. No sales and no traffic. Maybe you’ll go there and there will be 2 visits today from you and me. https://www.etsy.com/shop/OurLittleWorldStudio
