The miraculous transformation of having my pictures turn out like I want, and sometimes evolving during that whole process is really awesome. It’s feeling really good to be accomplishing something artistically!
The attached picture is of two of my recent paintings, the one with the butterfly in hand, is “Beauty Within Reach” and the other is “Forest Faerie Mermaid” 7 years ago
and my more recent paintings are starting to take form as what I have pictured. The second to last one, is of a fairy(my design!) doing a sort of praying style above her head. I’m going to try to attempt…doing some sort of sunbeams/moonbeams/refracted light shades coming down through. That’s how I saw it in my minds eye. I’m going to check out the library for books on acrylic painting and painting techniques as well as art terminology so I can say what I mean when talking about all this. I’m experimenting with bigger canvases too and that’s a lovely thing to have plenty of space to fill up! 7 years ago
I started drawing more again. I started to get ideas, and most of what I’d been trying to do, started to work!
I was very excited at this. So, maybe if I start woodburning again, I can get the pictures on it that I want, this time around. I’ll try to post some of my art soon. 8 years ago
I found a whole batch of books at Barnes and Noble the other day. These books had many of the things I’ve been picturing for ages of doing with my art. ((drools)) Now of course coming up with the money to buy the books… Wonder if anyone would object if I brought my digital camera there and took pictures…? 8 years ago
I hate it when I can picture exactly what I want, drawing/painting/woodburning, and go to do it and it comes out all wrong. Then I waste several sheets of paper etc trying to create what I wanted in the first place. If I can do one picture the way I figure it, I’ll check this off but not before then! 8 years ago
