OK, I’ll try to get another picture of this…I took this while it was being hung at the gallery. (So, it’s behind glass and I took it using my cell phone).
The next flower is for January and I need to find a good picture of a carnation. The next time I go to the store, I might pick up some and try my hand at photographing them! In just need to figure out what color I want…I need something other than yellow this time!
An updated shot of my WIP. I worked on the background some more, pulling in more definition of the grass. Don’t ask me why I didn’t crop the photo closer, but at least you can see my artist tape around the edges to keep it clean. (I added a few colored pencil names at the bottom and top so I wouldn’t forget which ones I used where…)
Another bad picture, but you’ll will have to wait until tomorrow for the daylight to try again. I started the flower today, so not very far in the process. I really have to work on that background. It’s in an ugly stage, but you just have to stay with me on this one.
I made the mistake of drawing with pencil at first, so I had to lightly erase it and go over it with a purple colored pencil. (Graphite pencils make the color in the color pencils look dirty and don’t really do the trick).
I’m hoping to work on the series next week when I will be “working outside my office”. So, while I’ll still be looking at emails and checking my voicemail for work, I *should* have time to relax a little and do some art. (Pending the hurricane action!)
