Hello my lovely artsy peeps! I've been taking a break from the frustrating problems I have been encountering with blogger as of late. I have not been able to leave comments on many of your blogs and yet amazingly you all have continued to visit me and leave gloriously lovely comments on mine! I have not checked to see if my google I.D. is working yet today 'cuz I want to post first.
Before I share any more with you I would like to give Kristin over at Twinkle, Twinkle a shout out for her new event, "The Summer of Color" commencing June 6th. If you haven't linked to her event button, pop on over and check it all out! It's going to be a fun, colorful summer!
Guess what? I've done another doodle girlie! (surprise, surprise). Ha, the magic chair strikes again...
She is the May Queen. I figured I'd better get her posted while it is still May! I had a lot of trouble with this one 'cuz I gessoed the face with golden's gesso and the colored pencils wouldn't work. (I usually use liquitex artist grade gesso - not the basic.) So I used copic markers and they didn't like the gesso either! It's a little sticky feeling but I played around with it, adding sparkly gelly roll pen work to it. I got tired of working on this before I could add the glitter to her crown. This was really a bit of a mess! I guess there are certain mediums that just don't mix well! Golden's gesso is so much smoother than the liquitex and I love it for painting faces on canvas but not for these doodles ever again!
I am starting a new project in the studio, The Green Faerie. She is mixed media on canvas and already a challenge. I hope to be able to share her soon! Maybe I will wait for Kristen's color event and hope she has a "green" week in which I can showcase her!
I want to also give a shout out to Sung-Hee Hong (Regina) who has been sharing her amazing soulful work by video lately. I've become addicted to her process and insightful way of expressing herself. Thank you Sung-Hee!
Well, I'm anxious to get into the studio and mix up the green paint for my faerie. I've been listening to Enya while I work on her...
So keep creating and wear that paint around your fingernails proudly (as I do)!
Forever in art,
