.............its been all about circles around here! Wow.......thats all i can say........I always get in over my head but with a little time and patience i love the end result........Above is a picture of an unfinished MailArt postcard for my friend Eileen, The Artful Crafter...........You can find her over there on my blog roll. As you can see still using the postcards to figure stuff out before putting on canvas.............. Here i tried out techniques for the rope around the door.......It was more difficult to draw the pebbles because of the texture of the canvas. So i had to slow down and concentrate. But i think it turned out great. You can see the variations of light and dark pebbles nicely. The more i work on this canvas the more i see the merits of the advice from June, at A Creative Dreamer, over there on my blogroll. She advised me to start from the back and work forward.....I did not do that and it has been a challenge working around everything. Its not that i can't do it the way i'm doing it but starting with the background and working forward will just make it easier on myself. And there's nothing wrong with easier. :)That June she's just a wealth of knowledge and i thank her for sharing with me!
*** I made it out the door again this morning for a walk! A slim crescent moon was holding back the dawn......lawn sprinklers left diamonds on the grass......cool breeze still coming in my window....Have a wonderful 4th of July! We'll be hibernating ....up over the century mark again....Hugs! deb
