I am beginning on journal number 4. I actually need to buy a better one, this one does not take watercolour. I must get another like the others. I suppose I could use this one for pencil and crayons.
Well, I have found that the pictures do not photograph well. The colour is never good but ah well.
I have been doing a lot of faces and enjoying doing it. I actually like this one.
I like to exaggerate the eyes. Its not realistic I know, but I am into fantasy, fairies and such. So for me anything goes.
Then there is the more comic book style that I thought would do well as a childrens illustration.
And more of those
The inevitable flowers.
Again I am not going for realism here. I am still working on my more relaxed method (smile)
I love Laurie's owls (I love a cloudy day) so I took a look at a picture I had and made an attempt. Not very good I am afraid. See.........I am trying too hard again. I got too involved and pulled back too late so its neither loose nor realistic but here it is
and this one was no better...........I think I must sketch a better picture to begin with. Some things I just can not do without overdoing.
Laurie how do you do it girl.........
Just one more for this time.....
I did a lot more, I filled a book but they do not copy well via the camera and they are not that great to begin with...........so I will save for another day when I have more courage to post them.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
