Art Journal… Day 15

Posted in Art Journal, Main at 2:46 pm by carrie

I think I’m the most proud of this one so far… it took over 5 hours to do :) I got to utilize all of my rendering class skills… how to draw glass, wood and organic materials.

Stan Kong would be pleased ;) (A few of you remember him from PCC &/or Art Center)

I first did a few studies of the flowers in pencil from looking directly at the arrangement. Then I took a picture (below) and worked off the picture. It wasn’t that it was terribly hard, it was just time consuming. It was nice to have a challenge.

My new rule here is if a “hurricane” is coming, I’m going to get a bouquet of flowers, and possibly draw them :) 1 down… hopefully no more to go ;)

    Hi Carrie,

    I’m glad you’ve settled in to your new home. I just saw your mom and grandmother at a star gazing event the other night. I love your art journals they’re beautiful! I’ve finally started my own blog and have two internet shops now. I look forward to seeing all the fun projects you’re working on.
