Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Thank you! Yeah, I've noticed a lot of collages tend to get very cluttered.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Thank you! This is what's on the bottom left underneath the manga girl nude:


Coral III
5" x 7"
Derwent Watercolour Pencils and wash
Canson Multi-Media Book 90lb watercolor paper
Photo reference by lisilk for WDE May 14-16

I'll post the full page when I do something to the right of the coral. For some reason I've been doing coral pieces with a slanting edge on the right side, streaming out wider on the bottom. It's just the layout that's appealed to me lately.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Corals are so varied both in looks and colors. It's no wonder you are having fun drawing and painting them. This one is lovely too.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Page Thirteen finished! I've been following a group called "Start a Sketchbook Habit" that has a 21-day plan to encourage daily sketching. I did this collage for Day 2 of the plan on the top of Page 14, facing the pretty manga girl:


"Art About Art"
8" x 7"
Collage and watercolor pencils
All-Media Book 90lb watercolor paper.

That was back on the 17th. Then I did the coral already posted. Not sure if I posted the collage thing already, but thought it should be on here if I didn't. If I am reposting it, sorry, it's my memory vanishing in the fibro fog. That happens.

Right, I mentioned that I finished the page with the pretty manga girl up top and you're probably wondering where it is.

Here.


All-Media Book, Page 13
8 1/2" x 12"
Derwent watercolor pencil, assorted pens and graphite pencil.
90lb watercolor paper, cold press.

I skipped the Day 3 exercise by two days, but I didn't not draw on the 18th, I know I did something yesterday because my scan folder exists. Somewhere I paid attention to some sketchbook. Oh duh, that would be starting the two Folio ones... lol... anyway, I'm doing this 21 day thing on the days I remember to do it and will be either following the prompts, changing the prompts or adapting the prompts. I'll keep the Suzette Morrow stuff in this book so it's all in one place.

I've got one or two spaces on the facing page and will do that one next. I should start numbering the pages so that they make sense and I don't have to count off in order to do the next ones!

I also think All-Media Book is going to turn into "Miscellaneous" like The Goof Off Book was, very easily. Doing the collage page really opened it up for that. I might try acrylics or oils or oil pastels on some of the pages.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

New sketch on bottom left of Page 14 of All-Media Book...


Scavenger Hunt 177
#4: Favorite Mug

3" x 5"
Delft Blue Derwent watercolour pencil
Canson All-Media Book 90lb cold press watercolor paper.

Still not a pretty girl or human body parts. Maybe I should do a body part next to it. Something cool to get back to the topic of figure studies.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Finished off Page Fourteen with the Day Four exercise from my NING prompts. There's 21 of those and they are all likely to be odd creativity exercises. This one was full of surprises.

I had to draw simultaneously with both hands, doing the same strokes at the same time. I'm right handed. Neither of these are as good as I could draw with my right hand and my full attention -- but it was a huge surprise to see that my off hand, the left hand cats, came out looking better both times! The best one is the bottom left, where I had already tried it once and begun compensating for the problems I had.


All-Media Book, Page Fourteen
9" x 12"
Collage, watercolor pencils, Pigma Micron and Tombow dual-tip pens.
Canson All-Media Book, 90lb cold press watercolor paper.

It was fun, if weird and not something I'd want to do every day. It also gives me hope that if I break my arm or something I wouldn't go out of my brain while in the cast, I could always try to train up that left hand if it happened.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

The blue cup is so vibrant. Some people can work with their off hand, some people can't. Found out I could at the tender age of 11, because I broke my right arm. Looks like you can too.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Thank you! That scared me so much as a kid. Some friends broke their arms and I kept getting injured in gym, but fortunately nothing that kept me from writing. I admired some kids for being left handed.

The teachers forced the left handed kids to use their right hands all the time and then marked them down for bad penmanship and illegible writing. I thought that was completely unfair and decided if they had to be ambidextrous, I'd try using only my left hand at school and did just as badly. I got in trouble for it, but that didn't bother me when it was over a protest.

It did make me realize how dependent on my right hand I am. But years of typing seems to have improved my control over my left.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Thank you! I remember the veins were some of what drew me to do a foot study of that particular model's pose, the foot was well lit and interesting. I've always liked veins, tendons, the interesting bumps and hollows on some people's hands, feet and limbs.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Did another day on the "Start a Sketchbook Habit" exercises by Suzette Morrow. I'm not sure if I skipped one or not, it's hard to keep up with daily things and remember to do them. But I know I drew yesterday so maybe that counts. Actually I know I skipped yesterday because I would've been doing these thumbnails.


Page Fourteen, All-Media Book
9" x 12"
Pitt Artist Pen, black brush tip
90lb cold press watercolor paper.
From life or from video without pausing.

Re: All-Media Book started 2006...

Next page, decided to do Scavenger Hunt items and fitted seven of them on one page, all in the same mediums. That was fun. They're looser than some of my pen and wash drawings but I enjoyed it nonetheless and think the page layout worked fairly well.


Scavenger Hunt #177
6. Can of Food (cat treats)
7. Keepsake (orange paperweight gift from deceased friend)
8. Chocolate (point Ari paw)
9. Broom (drafting brush)
10. Salty (salt cellar)
11. Iron (circle made by my daughter in farrier school)
12. New (Zebra G Comics Nib)
9" x 12"
Sakura Pigma Micron pen size 05
Sakura Koi 12 color pocket set watercolors
Canson All-Media Book 90lb cold press watercolor paper.

That's a lot of drawing. But oh, so interesting. Where is this scavenger hunt? I know what and where WDE is.
