PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 6/3

Hi Everyone!

I know I am posting this on Thursday but I won't have time later tonight.
While going through a box of old art I found some "Car Art" that I did back in 2013,
Car Art is me sketching while on a road trip. It is NOT always pretty with the horrible roads we have here but it is something to do on a long trip. Anyway, just for fun I thought I would try to paint one of the sketches. I found that painting it was not as easy as sketching it. A bit more practice..... I also finished the leather sculpt. I really like these self canvases. I got a few on clearance, they are really expensive.  
A big thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  4. I admire you for drawing in the car - the roads here are pretty bumpy too and I certainly wouldn't be able to draw anything and have it resemble what it's meant to be! I don't mean to hijack your post but you asked about where you could see me at work and I can't reply to your email as it's a no reply comment thingie - if you use Facebook my page NicseARTh has a couple of timelapse videos I did a while back or they're on YouTube as well. Have a great weekend.

  7. I'm still impressed with your car art. I've done doodling in the car, but have never attempted shadowing like you do. I really like the surreal feel of your leather relief sculpture composition. Your use of texture is marvelous as usual too. Happy PPF!

  9. I can't imagine drawing anywhere, especially a car!! The pencil drawing reminds me of the pictures of aliens from the 70s. Wonding what you were thinking when you were sketching.

  23. I would never be able to draw in the car...just like I can't read or even crochet in the car anymore because of motion sickness. Makes for very long trips.
