I had to give up on the 30 in 30 challenge for a book illustration project and now am working on this commission.
Well….. real life and real work got in the way of the 30 in 30 challenge. I picked up a book illustration job (45 pen & ink illustrations) with a very tight deadline and it is demanding all of my attention at the moment. Still teaching, still painting (mostly in classes I am teaching), but for now have to concentrate of the job. So off to work this morning! Will try to update as time goes on , and more importantly get at least a painting or two completed. BWS’s Splash show is coming up and I have something special I would like to finish up for that.
And so without further ado here is Day 10. I took my “Antique Bottles” painting and did this abstracted version. Last of the abstracted paintings…… as least for now…..
Well, what did I tell you? The cold usually doesn’t last too long here in Florida, and it hasn’t this time either. It is supposed to get into the 80′s today and up to 85 tomorrow. So, the blanket off the bed now.
Didn’t get Day up yesterday - I was at the gallery all day — first gallery sitting, then teaching so by the time I got home was just to tired to fire up the computer and get it done. So, here it is.
The weather has been cold here in Florida, but shouldn’t be for too long and for that I am grateful, though I really do enjoy the cooler weather. A chance to snuggle under the covers at night, and to wear some rarely-worn turtlenecks and jeans…..
Anyway, without further ado, Day 8′s offering.
Another abstracted landscape.
Abstracted landscapes. I did some of these with my younger students (ages 6-10) and we had so much fun, I thought my adult students would too. And they did. We did the black lines with acrylic, but “painted” them using the edge of a small piece of mat board. Then watercolor. Fun!What do you think? A bit different than my usual!!
