Every Tuesday I will post something CRAZY (or not) about me!
Ahem... here I gooo!
Today is is the first day to enter for Brigham City Fine Art Center contest, Up a Tree.
The first thing that popped into my head was the picture you see here. A merfairy is serenaded by a tree fairy. I finished this piece back in November of 2009.
Ugh... The medium I used was pastel, color pencil, and charcoal. The finished product looks more like a diorama to me. I really aught to practice with oils. I've heard that oils are very forgiving. I am going to teach myself to use watercolor, too.
*Sigh. I want to try everything but don't have the money for it all.
Okay, here is another picture I drew with graphite pencil for Up a Tree. I just barely got this laptop and can't find any kind of photoshop anywhere and I am frustrated. Don't all computers come with some kind of photoshop?
Sorry to expose you to something so ugly. You know, being an artist, you don't want to show off your best in its worst stages!!!
Wish me luck in the contest!
What kind of ambitions do you have other than writing?
