Thanks to Little Miss Mel of Tinys. She thought of me as a recipient of the "One Lovely Blog Award". Yay!!! Goodness, I sure wasn't expecting anything like this. Isn't she awesome? Check the proof! http://tinysandtea.blogspot.com/
Now, I must do the same. These are the rules to be followed:
*Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
*Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
*Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Got this idea from Vanessa who recommended Peter Reynolds' website:http://www.peterhreynolds.com/ He is the illustrator of the children's book "The Dot". This practice allows me to play with watercolor and not have this overwhelming feeling of making everything on the page appear visually aesthetic.
Played with watercolor... Not so pleased with this medium. Seems easy, but very tricky in a messy way. Sigh. (Head bowed, just like in the illustration). If I were to do this over, I would have left her lower back green instead of red.
Find the core shadow, cast shadow, and the reflective light. These are the key to making a realistic looking drawing. Things I learned from my one day three hour drawing class. I'll be taking more for sure. Exciting!
Totally new. It all started with a sketchbook I got in January 2009, drew the likeness of my daughter (to my surprise), got inspired by cartoonist Lynda Barry, then this blog was created in May 2009.
I must confess that getting visits from wonderful stranger artists out there is a thrill.
Everyone is welcome and thanks for visiting!
