Thank you to everyone who put in their vote for the last blog entry! The piece that will be shipping to my Art Swap peer now carries the name: Roxy! There were a ton of votes towards this name. Even though I had a lot of great additional names, I started to bend toward the majority. It helped to get different opinions. 😉
Last weekend I was really artistically charged so I decided to work on a piece for the Art Swap. Unfortunately, I don’t think it ended well but at the beginning it was going great. At least, I will be able to show the evidence of how beautiful it looked before I painted over it. LOL! Now when I work on these, I go straight to the Sharpie. I do not pencil anything in. Personally, I think I get them done faster when I do it this way, but it leaves me wide open for mistakes. Ha!
When I was working on this Sharpie outline, I decided to fill in some places within the design, and I think it really enhanced the piece.
