Just wanted to take a minute to show some new artwork I have been making.
I bought this cute tiny Chinese calendar at the Harvard Library book sale last year.
It has beautiful botanical illustrations on each page that I thought would look good on the face of one of my drawings. I also have some asian text books in my stash to help fill in the area for the face.
Here is the beginning of one of the drawings. I use pencil and Caran d’ ache crayons to color and shade the face.
After the drawing is complete I start the auditioning process for what items will populate the rest of the collage.
As you can see I tried several different elements.
I finally settled on this bird on a branch and the beautiful green leaf. This drawing and collage was finished in 2 days, that is incredibly fast for me!
Here is another new artwork I started. Please come check them out at my studio. Directions to Western Avenue Studios are here.
Come in at the A building entrance and take the elevator to the third floor. Exit elevator and turn right and follow until hallway ends, then turn left. Look for the black and white striped door! Studio #313.
