Keeping the Cloud Light

Posted 4 hours ago

Hey Hey You You get off of my Cloud ~ Hey Hey You You get off of my Cloud ~ Well, the song has been going through my mind, but this is actually a different attitude than I have. I just feel like I have to clear some stuff off my Desktop because my Cloud is getting too full. I probably have about 10,000 photos here that I haven't posted yet.

Tonight I went through a few of the Caricatures that I drew at a Wedding. Good times ~

I hired Alison for my husband's birthday party and it was a huge success! She arrived early to set everything up and then dived right into the drawings. Alison even joined in on the birthday party theme and wore an outfit that went along with it. Most of my friends had never been part of a caricature drawing before, but they enjoyed the whole experience! Everyone was entertained by being a spectator and by being the subject of the drawing. Each picture was so unique to the person being drawn. There was a lot of laughter that night! I highly recommend Alison for any party!

Reinventing the Wheel. Again.

Posted Sep 2019

Time off tonight. I figured I would like to just draw some simple shapes.But I didn't just draw shapes. As soon as I picked up the Color stick, I thought my shapes into face parts.

My background is Realistic Painting, not in Linework. I always started with a Toned Canvas. So I decided to get a slice of brown craft paper to start again.

Not as bad as before, but not as fascile as it should have been. t's hard to imagine how the light falls on such a complicated structure as a face when you have one there to look at with controlled lighting .

It's my experience with Party Caricatures that the toned paper is only used for darker skin-toned people. Even light skinned people also have a skin tone when you're Painting them. They're not White, like White Paper. Maybe it's because we exaggerate when we draw Caricatures, like Light is almost White, so we leave it white? I don't know how it came about. But sometimes it's just easier to do what' expected.

So I started to make up a face. Again on white paper. But I decided to use a midtone color stick for the background. (also not a good idea ~ back to the paper conundrum some day). Anyway, I drew a light/midtone blue around 'the face area' before starting. I guess it's 3-dimensional. I don't really like it, but it will probably have a good effect on subsequent Caricatures that I will be drawing at Events. After I suffer the questions, I make better pictures.
