My Friday morning class was pretending we were looking out a portal of a sub…here are a few of their creations….so much fun!
I did a little watercolor sketching this week. Trying to get back into some kind of habit of painting. I also needed to demo the dry brush technique for my Thursday night class. I rarely use this technique and as a result am not very good at! Dry brush happens when you load the brush with pigment but not much water and you kind of drag it around. The direction on the brush marks and using an old crappy brush are some tricks that folks use . Dry brush creates some great texture often used for side of barns, tree trunks and grass but I guess it could be incorporated into most any painting.
This week’s on the media is…once again…. the colored pencil podcast. John and Lisa were talking about using ETSY or EBAY to sell your work- they talked about the pros and cons of each. They also discussed Amazon-Homemade (which I had never heard of and they do NOT recommend) and argued a bit about making sure folks came back to the artists home page.
I have most of the next week off- planning to get painting and work on some Christmas stuff I have been putting off! I have also been working on a fund raiser to help end domestic violence and will share some pictures with you soon- I just need to pin down a name for the project.
Till’ Next Week-Peace Out-
