Doodle de Jour
I am at a point of frustration with my current work in progress. I am struggling with getting the kind of detail I want in my line work and it is so difficult with a paintbrush and paint. It does not compare to my wonderful zebra pen on paper. I think I should just work with what I have and stop giving myself the expectation that it should look like pen on paper does. Maybe I will order some black Golden Airbrush fluid and see if it makes a difference. I have tried my acrylic inks, but they just do not offer the intensity of black I want.
Needless to say, I will plug along with it. Here is it so far, colored in and outlined, but it needs details and umph.
Yesterday my fantabulous prizes from Currys Art Store arrived. I have spent a brief time testing them out and as promised, I will make a video with them this weekend. (Yay! Long weekend! I LOVE LONG WEEKENDS!)
I think I will do an art journal entry using my wonderful new pencils and maybe a copy of my doodle de jour.
I just finished this one and I love it. I am itching to color it in with my new pencils. But first, it is a lovely spring day and I must take myself and Daisy Duke to the park for some exercise and some sunshine. TTYL
