Here I sit in front of the computer and a watercolor waiting behind me waiting for my attention. Awe. Loud house! All the family is home, the friends are coming and going and just too many distractions to paint. I need to find a mellow zone so I can concentrate for a certain bit of time. Now, someone wants a haircut…..I just want to paint and create my art. I am patiently waiting for that season to show itself. Count my blessings right? I think at a certain point in a super Mom’s life we need our needs met.
On a happy note, life drawing is awesome. I love Thursday nights at Lafayette College. A special Thank you to Lafayette College for hosting and Crayola for sponsoring. Life drawing is the foundation for all art. You need to know how to draw realism before you can manipulate it, plain and simple. I will post a few new sketches as follows. I love drawing Elizabeth when she models for us; she is so elegant and her persona as a greek goddess would look. My drawings are not picking up on that like I’d like to portray. I am really beat and much need of a rest in every aspect and I see my artwork here is reflecting it. By Thursday evening I was exhausted, but didn’t want to miss the class time. The perspective is off………But, with every drawing comes a store-house of solid foundation for the next drawing. Keep pressing through. I enjoy this next sketch, but I ran out of room at the bottom of the paper. I like challenging myself with foreshortening views.
