This is a painting I did for Illustration Friday! This week's topic is "Tall".
Also, I added a new blue into my palette. It was hard to use at first. Every pigment behaves differently. It's not just a matter of switching out the colors and expecting things to behave as they used to. I wasn't sure if I liked Winsor Blue at first, because when it dried it left little white pocks all over, but I really like the hue. I guess I will keep practicing with it and see if it belongs in my palette permanently. Trying new things is fun.
I am so tired. I have been so busy all day! I finished editing my 100+ paged sketchbook and sent it off to the printers for a proof copy. I hope they do a good job! Secondly, I dragged my butt to figure drawing today. Third, I finished knitting up a sock for my husband, who never has to wear store-bought for as long as I live, as I keep him well-supplied. Forth, I painted this for Illustration Friday, did 2 loads of laundry, organized and cleaned my office space, and did a half-hour cardio workout. I hope I won't be too destroyed tomorrow at work. I recently changed jobs! Last week was my first week at Zynga, Austin TX. I hope I have a good second week!
Well, it's 3:15. It's definitely time to get some rest
