Finishing work with children…
(unfinished, mixed media)
I am so tired, I literally fell asleep, with my head on the wall, mid-artwork; all in some vain attempt to fit art in…somewhere. Anywhere. Really, anything will do. Anything.
(unfinished piece, 2017)
MIXED MEDIA: coloured pencil, gouache, ink, clay, gesso, polymer clay, leaf pressings, feathers, wood laminex, applique, false eyelashes, snail shells & jewels on distressed, recycled wood.
I spent a long time simply making all the different elements and types of leaves and so, when it came to constructing the 3D elements of this piece, I kept hesitating. What if I couldn’t get it to work? It was a question I didn’t really want answered…
But I finally braced myself and…voila. It’s working so far; now for the faces and filling the little gaps within the petal mass. Wish me luck…
Tick-tock, I must finish this clock!
This will take forever…I kind of wish I wasn’t so obsessive; so, I could just, simplify the needed detail!
I am, seriously, loving my new pencils! ♡♡♡ so many colours and shades; I’m in heaven!
She’s finally finished! Artistic endeavors, time & toddlers don’t mix; , recipe for disaster much?!
Rembrant-Lyra Oil pencils are a dream to draw with…so smooth & creamy; and they’re heavily laden with a delicious pigment range!
Having so much fun drawing on wood again!
