Today I have quick draw art. I was very busy this week. Part of the busy was having so much fun on Tuesday being a model for a group of artists. I made my pose, found a focal point at the back of the room and was set. They played music and that was a plus. The artists were amazing. It is different when you see yourself in the eye of an artist and I had 7 to look at. I would definitely do it again.
This is a 5 minute sketch over a background I already had. I will go back in and make it better.
I just had a bit of time the other morning before leaving my house and got this 30 minutes sketch.
Watercolor class using Gouache. I like this paint better.
A few weeks ago I created these two pours. I liked them especially because they are brown. However, I didn't have any specific "thing" for them. I was just messin' around. Since it was mess around art I decided to reuse the canvas. I put them in the sink to wash off the paint. When I do this I never get all the paint off, and have to paint the canvas white or black. To my surprise the paint pulled off in a skin and had not penetrated the canvas at all. Now, maybe all of you know this already but this tells me that pours may not last long on a canvas, even if they are sealed. So I did some research and yep I was right. When you add silicon to your acrylics it never dries. This is just one of the articles I found
Here I am easily pulling the paint off the canvas
When I was done I have a perfectly clean and ready to use canvas.
