Gesture Drawings of Daffodils
Today I've been getting organized for my class on Saturday at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. I've got the paper cut for the students. I usually wait and make the palettes for them on the day of the class but I'm going to try and do it early.(meaning here at home and take them) The best idea I came up with were Styrofoam egg cartons.. what do you think? I supply their supplies for this class. We will be painting flowers and birds. I've been checking their website to see what is blooming over there. It's different than here. Only an hour and half away but they usually bloom quicker! Here's some gesture drawings I did of some daffodils. I try not to peek. So it's put my pencil down,keep it down, and don't look at the drawing just look at the whatever you are drawing.. until you are finished.I did the yellow ones after the gray ones. I think we'll do this as a loosening up at first.Its sunny today. Makes me feel like spring will be here soon. take care, Diana
Last night I loved that one daffodil I found in my yard yesterday so I wanted to add it to the daffodil painting. I think I got carried away I put it in 3 times. So I'll take out 2 I think! and now I see my jar needs a lot of straightening and some darker definition. It helps me to put it prop it up and look at it during the day! take care!
