Useful Practice

Posted 13 hours ago

Look at how clearly my recent practice helped at today's Event. One of the things I was asked to Paint onto my Client's Notebook was a Whimsical Sail-Away Picture ~ Very Colorfully.

This is what I came up with:

What to Bring?

Posted 2 days ago

One of this weekend's Events is to Personalize Leather Notebooks for Montblanc. Not sure of what I'll be asked to decorate, I previously checked out my Black and White Paint Pens. They worked very well. And I will also bring my Acrylic Paints ~ if tonight's study works out well. I painting a design on my own Leather Pocketbook. Waiting for it to dry, I want to be sure that the material stays flexible and the paint doesn't pop right off. I'll also probably want to add black lines with a Sharpie Marker when it's dry.

hmmmm.....I'm also thinking of bringing Crowquill Pens and India Ink Nah.... I'll be in a New Dress at a quiet table in an UpScale Store. India Ink has a way of.... getting on stuff. Not going to bring it. Perhaps I can find a Fountain Pen around here? Or Oh Boy ~ perhaps my Client Might (Maybe?) let me use one of their Elegant Montblanc Pens???

Not sure what my Client has in mind. So I want to be prepared for anything

One of the Caricatures that I drew at today's Event. Did I make her Beautiful? Or did I just emphasize the Beauty that she already had

Warming Up for my next scheduled Event. I will be drawing Caricatures at The Home for the Aged.

I like that. It's easier to find what to draw in Faces of the Elderly than in Faces of Babies. I know what I'm doing, so I jumped right in and drew a Practice Caricature. Good thing I did that ~ because it reminded me to Always do Warm Ups Before Drawing. It felt nervous ~ looking back and forth for practically Each line.

Scribbling around, I ran out of my easy Cardstock Paper, so I switched to that Glossy Paper that I'm stuck with here. That was just what I needed. Can't predraw on Glossy Paper. My pictures became much more Expressive. They felt easy and fun to draw. And when I'm having fun, im more likely to be able to bring my audience along for the fun. And that's one of the best things I can do at a job.
