Who Has Extra Space? : Daily Art Practice
This was the view from our window this morning. The light was hitting the trees in just the right way, although it is difficult to tell from this photo.
I wasn’t sure I was going to get a post-up this week, due to the blog server being down and the hours I spent today cleaning up media files and posts in my blog. I keep getting notices that my blog isn’t going to work because I have exceeded the file limit. I pay yearly for my blog, and I am unsure how this could happen since I only post 4 times a month. This week, I got a notice saying that I couldn’t upload any more files. Of course, the hosting wants me to pay more money to upgrade my storage. I am not willing to pay more, so I removed old posts, except for the last 4 years, that probably don’t receive traffic. I am sure this problem will come up again in the future so I am going to have to research on how to free up space. Such an annoyance and a bit of a time waster. Why can’t these things be easy?
Daily Art Practice
I have a few sketchbook pages to share today. This first one is in watercolor, using the StencilGirl Cooking stencil. This stencil has such a variety of images that are fun to play around with, especially if I am not sure what to paint.
I used the StencilGirl Sweet Girl Face Stencil, for the next one. If you recall, I had some fun sketching a bunch of Mug Shots . I decided to take this stencil and turn her into a mug shot. A few months ago, I purchased a simple set of Prismacolor 3596T Premier Colored Pencils, Soft Core, 12 Count and decided to give them a try on this page. I don’t know much about color mixing and blending when it comes to colored pencil, but I enjoyed playing around with them.
Do you have any tips or favorite colored pencil tutorials that you can share? I would love all the help I can get.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is a Tiesta Tea – Slenderizer Dry Flight Sampler, that I received as a Christmas present. I am excited to try all the flavors. I did try the Chinese Gunpowder Green and I enjoyed it’s mild flavor.
Happy Tea Day,
