Took a blog break. Life is so crazy busy these days. However, my daughter's summer camps are over, and now I can begin to enjoy the summer. It's going to be a crazy ride this year, as my daughter is going to be a senior. Where does time go?
I was so excited when Mary Ann Moss announced her new class SKETCHBOOKERY. I have been wanting to grow as an artist. I love watercolors and sketching. As a working mother it's hard to always find time, but I MUST TO REMAIN SANE! It's my little get away, my calm. I have taken many of Mary Ann's other classes, she is a huge inspiration and a gifted teacher.
Mary Ann is teaching us about Blind Contour and Modified Contour drawings.
I made my sketchbook last summer out of a book I found on a trip to Savannah, GA. It's from Belgium originally. I love it. It's almost full. Only a few pages left. I will have to shop for a couple more this weekend.
I am using Koi Watercolor Pan Set of 24. I took each color and blended them together and made color references like below.
I don't take my drawing seriously. I use it for experimentation. I have never taken an art class, and I love any time I get to play. I dream of traveling and sketching my way through Europe! *sigh*
Here are a few of the Modified Contour Drawings I did today while on break at work. I was drawing what I had on my desk.
