First of all, thank you for all you great comment on all the things to do with rosemary! I am particularly interested in Amy's (Such a Wondrous Place this Faerytale Space) recipe for a rosemary/patchouli oil that works to keep mosquitoes away... I could certainly use that here! I have asked her if she'd share and if she does, I'll let you know!
Well, today was drawing class and we had to hand in our still life value study. This project was quite difficult and required a lot of patience (you know how I do in that department...). I think it turned out pretty well and really looks like it has some depth to it.
Quite amazing actually! I'd just draw the values and shapes I saw and when I'd step back to look at it, it suddenly looked three-dimensional. I did have to rework (and rework) quite a few areas to get them to look right in relationship to each other. Altogether I spent about 12 hours on this, which means I am so ready to move on to a new project!
Next topic: perspective! And we'll be drawing outside, which will be nice!
Speaking of outside, the cool front has moved through, it's gorgeous outside and I have to go water the yard since the rain totally missed us! I hope all of you in the flooded regions are doing alright!
Wishing you a beautiful Friday!! (Oops! Wednesday, I mean!)
