*Disclaimer! I do apologize for my horrid writing, I'm sure it's filled with whimsicle errors. (what does that even mean?) I have no idea. But I do know when I took a writing test on a 0-5 scale I got a .2. Yes, a point two! Sorry? I'll do my best.
So I'm not gonna have an actual drawing finished this week. I went retarded and made it much more complicated than need be. So I have this above card I did to kind of show my blatant inhability to capture perspective and hopefully later on we'll see a vast improvement. I did just start an !AWESOME! painting class which will help in this regard and I'll learn to paint, IN OILS!!! Hurrah! I'll post updates as they come. So there's that little drawing, but I do want to give an update on the piece on working on and how I made it much more complicated.
Well, that's the doodle the piece is based on. Yes! I did hide a poem in the squiggles, but it's not what's written on there. Also, you'll never be able to actually read it. . . most likely. So below I have a before/after I colored the background, the 1st one you can maybe see the word, but after it's colored, no way. Can ya see it? Do you see some s's? Anyways. . .
Guess how long it took to color the inside there. . . go ahead, I'll wait.
Yup, a joyus 2 hours. This piece is 28"x42". . . this will take me quite some time. But! My eyes have improved after that Redwood drawing, and there's no going back! So that is pretty exciting. . . for me anyways. :)
