@eli Thank you for the compliment. I was actually playing around with some ideas for a little story I want to illustrate someday. Granny loses her glasses, her keys, a tissue her sock and shoe. The dog and cat help her look. They are in a red hat in the end but I put them on her head in this one :-) I used to work at an Institutional laundry and would need to use a pencil and mark order forms as I separated laundry orders. I would always end up with about 4 pencils behind my ears somehow. And I used to always be looking for my 3rd child who, most times, was in my right arm hanging off my hip! :-) It's kind of my autobiography...except I'm improved because of my husband who helps keep me in line :-)
I was doodling yesterday. I was thinking, if I can find the time, I could work on this for this months challenge. What do you think? Oh, just noticed it's April already! Ha! oh well. I guess I'll wait for the nextr challenge :-)
As some of you know, we are selling our house to move into a fifth wheel full time. I have a big wooden shelving unit with a desk and shelves above and flat files to the left with lots of space underneath (I had plastic roller drawers sets underneath). I know this isn't a place to sell things but, I just don't know where to find that many artists. $40 to whoever might want it. You can e-mail me at email@example.com if you're interested. Thanks. I'll add a picture. I'll be back........
It's not free standing. Needs to be attached to a wall. It was originally built to fit a closet.
@lidia-ull Thanks for the advice. I was thinking of doing little ones on watercolor paper but it would be smart to do it on cheaper paper first! I need to do more studies, always. I tend to jump ahead sometimes which is, as @Lee-White says, truly IS a recipe for disaster. You can't rush things.
I decided to play a little. No plan just doodling and painting freely. Happy Friday tomorrow. Can you tell I'm working through the How to Draw Everything class? Cubes, spheres, cylinders and pyramids...of course these are pretty quick and loose but....it was fun. I know the perspective is off, especially the back walls but.....I wasn't going for perfection. Just needed a little creativity break.
I drew it sideways so....it's a little like the upside down experience :-)
Threw in my laptop for good measure. The top was leaning back a bit but....it looks rather like it's almost laying flat. Need to still work on that perspective but, the outline isn't too bad, I guess. I think the top of the screen should be a little wider....
