Mosaic Project Update: Striping Finished

Finished the striping on the Mosaic piece. I have another element to construct while I wait for the paint to dry.

Had a bit of the purple I mixed up left over so I striped my Ott Lite too. Might post that eventually.

Sneaking in a little striping

I was out doing family gathering type things, but managed to sneak in the outlining and some striping. I don't care if it is 1 a.m. dangit! I'm gonna paint a little.

I really need to put together one of those mini watercolor kits that gives me something to paint with when I am away from home and the creative urge hits me.

Mosaic Project update

I rattle-canned the base color a dusky plum, transferred the design, put in the flat colors with 1-Shot.
Then I decided to do the shading before the base cost dried. Went a little crazy with the brush stroke work, but I am happy with the results. Now I need to do the line work.

From the Art-chives

So I was digging through my computer files the other day and came across some images I had created when I was teaching graphic design at Silicon Valley College.
This was an image I created in 2005. I started with a sketch, which I scanned in, traced in Illustrator, then brought into Photoshop for the color effects. I can tell I was just getting in to pinstriping at the time based on how my signature looks. But fun to see elements of my love for pinstriping and jewelry making in a digital file.

Another project begins…

Oh what the heck is she up to now?!?!?
Guess you'll just have to stay tuned for progress posts. :)
