I've started My Willowing Angel sketch!

Hellooooo my artsy friends!  Thank you so much for your heartfelt comments and concerns for mine and my Dad's health.  Things are improving! 

I'm still doing art from the big chair - Ha!  I've started my Willowing M3 sketch for the angel done in the Alphonse Mucha style!  I really didn't think I would be able to start it yet so I'm excited.  I've done her in my fabriano 8 x 10 journal on the center foldout spread. 

And here is her start...



I will have to work the string into the picture with a little gesso and paint - LOL!  Anyway, I am very excited to take her into the studio for her color.  Tam showed doing the background and angel separately and then gluing the angel onto the finished background.  Of course, I won't be doing it that way because this is my journal and I'm not going to cut her out so I will probably get stuck again when it comes to finishing her!  I'm not really a rebel (well, maybe a little), I'm just still figuring out my working style.  There is the whole other page to add journaling too so I think it's going to be cool.

Here is the updated fairy photo from the last post - just a teeny tiny bit different but she's finished now. Ha!

Harbinger of Spring Fairy

I have to "dash" to Dad's for a quick visit and drop off some medical supplies then I'm going to Michael's to spend this week's 40% off coupon.

I'm hoping to begin my angel in the studio tonight.  The tunes I'll be spinning will be by Enya - I'm in the mood for Shepard Moons and Amarantine (not to be confused with Valentine).

More from the studio and some valentine pics later!

Forever in art, Jessica

Oh my! You are a girl after my own heart!!! I have yet to spend my coupon this week too - but that's exactly what I do - one new thing a week if I can get to that side of town ;)
Hope you're dad is feeling better and that you get more time to work on this AMAZING start - it reminds me of something Shakespherian! I LOVE her - and am green as I have not EVEN started ONE thing for the class!
