Well, I’m very happy to say that we’re still both hard at it, and arting every day. We more often than not do the same, or similar, image, and it’s so helpful to compare the two pieces. Critiquing each other’s work points out the weak spots, or areas that could be enhanced.
We went a watched a Dolphin Show at the Hilton; it made me sad for the dolphins, even tho this particular group is very aware of how to treat their mammals, and the shows do raise money for valuable research. Anywayyyy, we then both drew dolphins.
I did a made up, out of my head, flowering branch. I’m not crazy about it. I also think that I add too much pen to my drawings, so the first one is without pen, and the 3rd has a bit of pen added:
Jen did a palm frond and the trunk of the palm tree
Then, lastly, we tried Chris Carter’s Color Scheme Game again. We drew a similar image 4 times in our watercolor journals. We rolled the dice twice for each image, giving us a dominant color, and a color scheme. After the dice rolls, we had 2, 3, 4, and 5 colors, for each of the different images. These images are very small (2.5″ x 2″), so getting 4 or 5 colors in the image was dang tricky!
Well, that’s it for now, it’s happy hour and Crown is calling……..
