Pictures of the wall in my office (aka The Box) at my day job (the one that pays the bills) on which hangs my artwork.
They are a great conversation starter and it does my heart good to have reminders of my passions and creative side. I also believe that my right brain pursuits make me better at the left brain activities that seem to occupy most of my day.
This is a drawing I completed earlier this year and realized I had never posted it. The images below show the progression of this artwork from the preliminary pencil sketch, working in the undertones, flushing out the highlights and shadows, blending the colors and adding the background. And yes those are the eyes you see in the upper right hand corner! ~M
Today in the Pacific Northwest it rained with thunder and lightning so it was a perfect day to stay indoors and create art. With some upcoming events this fall and winter I wanted to get some ideas and designs down on paper. I am happy with the results especially since I spilled a bottle of ink all over my art table first thing, even splashing some of the designs. But I got creative and managed to make something out of the chaos!
You may view the photo’s individually, and others, here on myFB page. Thanks for stopping by! ~M
