Well, it’s been quite a while! It’s been a busy summer; helping with two local VBS’s two weeks in a row was especially tiring! We’ve had the pleasure of having our older brother home from collage with us all summer, as well! It was great spending time with him!
Living in CA, we went to the beach a whole lot over the extent of this summer. Actually, we went quite a lot of places outdoors. Me and my mom (<3) have started Nature Journaling because of that. It’s been a blast! It’s great fun, and really relaxing after a long day at the beach, or in the forrest. If you’d like, I’ll share all of my pages so far in a later post.
Anyway, it’s been quite busy. Now let’s get to the art! collecting most of what I’ve done over the summer, I’m actually a little disappointed in my self. I like what I’ve done, it’s just barely any. Oh well, I will try to get into more of a groove in the next few months. Here’s what I’ve done!
I’ll show you my pencil sketches from my sketch book, first!
^ I was practicing expressing emotion.
For this one, I was just desperate to play with some paint, but didn’t really have a plan. I took out a piece of scrap wood that my mom gave to me a couple of days ago, and did a little sketch right onto the wood, and started painting. It turned out really nice, I think! Her face was really hard for me to get it looking right. I had to blend all the different shades for the shading of her face. Her eyes were pretty difficult, too. But I think it’s always hard when painting to do tiny details. I think my favorite part of this piece, though, was and is her outfit. 🙂
Well, there it is! All of the except able art and drawings that I have done over the summer since I last blogged. As I said, not very ,ugh, but it was fun! 🙂 Please let me know what you think of it all! I will really try to blog more often! I totally failed to do so over the summer!
I’ll be back soon with my Nature Journal pages, and more details about them!
