Squalls of Daffodils: Daily Art Practice
My husband said he had one task for Saturday-to put the snowblower in the shed. The very large snowblower that takes up a spot in the garage right next to my car and makes unloading groceries a juggling act.
Saturday morning, we had hail and snow flurries ALL day. Sunday morning, we woke up to a dusting of snow. All day today, we had snow and spontaneous snow squalls with emergency alerts on our cell devices. I took this picture of my beautiful, now wilted daffodils after lunch. Apparently, winter has the last say.
A while ago, I shared the first three eyes of this study and I finally finished so I thought I would share the final result. I took pictures of everyone’s eyes in my household, including mine, and they are included in this study. The other eyes are based off of photos from the web. I learned a lot about skin tones, shadows and highlights from this study. For each eye, I used the Journal Sense Vision Stencil from StencilGirl as a template.
This next study is my own version of this watercolor study by Femke Muntz Art on Instagram. The simplicity of this study sends the eye to the facial features and gives well placed shadows, although few. I learned a lot by copying this study and look forward to branching out and trying this style some more.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. I thought I would share one of my tea cabinets today. Most of my small quantity loose teas reside in this cabinet. I think it is time to organize again.
Happy Tea Day,
