Do You Have A Mug Shot?: Daily Art Practice
Our schedule has finally started to slow now that football season is over. My son had some great runs in the last few games and is already talking about next season. I am thankful that things have slowed a bit and I am enjoying the down time. I recently had a foot injury due to too much exercise, so this week I took a rest from work and spent the time with my foot up. It was the perfect excuse to make art.
This is the view from our road on the way to the bus stop this morning. We had had some lovely sunrises this week.
Daily Art Journal
Remember last week I mentioned our drive through the mountains? I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with all the pictures I took so I decided to try some different media in my sketchbook. I started each sketch with a layer of watercolor before going in with my new Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I have never used colored pencils so this is completely new to me. I would like to watch a few tutorials to figure out what I am doing. Do you have any suggestions?
I recently saw a video by Danny Gregory where he shared a journal he keeps, housing sketches of mug shots. I thought it interesting and inspirational and a great way to practice sketching faces. I found a few websites with vintage mugshots as resources for these sketches.
I am joining the tea day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My Tea today is Tiesta Tea Fruity Paradise. It has been ages since I have enjoyed this tea but I am excited to be drinking it again. Tiesta Tea renamed this tea as it used to be called, Fruity Pebbles. If you like green tea and fruit, this tea is amazing!
Happy Tea Day,
