Trying Something New
I have been trying to branch out in the art mediums I use. I usually stick to pencil drawing and sometimes charcoal. Frankly, drawing in color scares me. I have a hard time trying to make things look realistic. But it dawned on me that if I never try I will never get better at it. So the above pictures are my measly attempts at it. I have this postcard picture of this person picking tea leaves and I always thought it would be a cool picture to pain in watercolor so I tried it. I have to be honest I really think that it turned out like a first grader painted it and truthfully I'm kind of embarrassed to share it but oh well. The picture on the far right it of orchids that I drew using oil pastels. I then cut it out with my exacto knife and then used foam tape to attach it to some black cardboard to give it some dimension, not to mention the orchids looked pretty plain on the white paper I drew them on so I have to mount it on black. It's a start, but I have a long ways to go.
