This is now finished! It’s taken a lot of time over the past few days, but I’m happy with it now.
It’s been completed on A3 mixed media paper using a variety of media. Details have been added using coloured pencils and iridescent/metallic paints, hence the shimmery, shiny spot to the left. These details are a nightmare to photograph, but hopefully you’ll get enough of an idea from what you can see in the image.
Adding the iridescent patterns was a bit like using ithildin; I had to have the light at the right angle so I could see what I was doing and that also involved me cricking my neck at awkward angles!
My only problem now is to put a price on my work to sell it; so any sensible help/advice would be greatly recieved! Oh, I also need to find a name for it too…
Finally! I manage to stay awake long enough on a weekend to colour this one in! School has been wiping me out. I have been drawing outlines for a short while in the evenings, but I certainly don’t have the time I used to. As I am more alert than I have been for a while, I hope to get more art done today.
I really needed to do some art too. It relaxes and calms me. Four weeks back at work after a prolonged absence last year has seen me increasingly tired. I have lessons to learn about pacing myself and not pushing myself so hard or being so hard on myself. There are many more lessons that I need to learn too.
I am so glad, however, I have found my creative ‘mojo’ once again. May it long continue!
It’s also only a few days until Color Me Calm and Color Me Happy are available for purchase. It’s really exciting for me!
