5 x 5's and my Kelly Berkey Challenge of the week
When I don't know what to paint......no real vision....I go to my 5 x 5 little canvases! For some reason, something so small takes all the pressure off of trying to reach perfection :) The last couple of nights I did these three. The first is a girl......not sure what to title it. She kind of looks sweetly pissed :)
Mixed media with antique ledger paper wings.
A couple of whimsical birds :)
This is my Kelly Berkey challenge for this week. I thought instead of putting her in my sketch journal I'd go ahead and draw her on watercolor paper and try to color her in. Well the photo ended at just below the knees and since I didn't know how to draw feet, I put her in the ocean. ha! This is such a great challenge for me.....trying to get proportions right. I'm still a work in progress obviously as it appears I've given her one big blue diaper! Oh well, it will be fun to go back and see some of these beginning sketches after I (hopefully) get better at them.
