I wanted to add something different to my artwork, and decided that the easiest way was to add a different material. I bought a set of pearlescent watercolors, and this is the first result of my efforts with them:
(Prints of this are available for purchase on Fine Art America.)
I used blue colored pencil to draw the flowers, green to draw the stems, and white to blend it all together. I then used red, green, yellow, and black watercolors to fill in the background space.
It has taken me 8 days into 2017 to muster up enough gusto to type up a blog entry. All of the food and champagne I’ve been consuming has made me too sluggish to do much of anything, but here goes my attempt.
I had a nice surprise the day before New Year’s Eve. I got an email saying that I had sold one of my dachshund drawings on Etsy, making it the first artwork I’ve ever sold! Even though it’s just a digital download of my drawing, I’m still going to let it count 🙂
I spent New Year’s Eve watching lots of tv, eating pizza rolls, and drinking a bottle of champagne. I know what you’re thinking – what a party animal! I know, I’m just wild. Unfortunately, I missed the whole Mariah Carey incident. I was watching “That’s Entertainment!” on TCM instead. I’m not a fan of pop music, so watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve just give me a headache. I also don’t understand the appeal of waiting outside for hours to see a ball drop :p
Anyways, I hope that everyone had a fun and happy holiday season!
