This month I had seven more people join the Facebook Fanpage for Glad's Art. I'm always happy to see friends join me on this art adventure.
I received my first drawing back from drawing 2 class with an "A" and the professor said it was "impeccable"! It sure made me feel good. It is now on my portfolio. It's a drawing of my favorite place on Earth...Yosemite! If you haven't been to Yosemite I must urge you to go. It's just such a beautfiul place to visit in any season.
I did my very first color pencil drawing. Part of the drawing was meant to have a crackle finish which I wanted to draw with pencil but my professor suggested I use an exacto knife to give it that effect. I wasn't sure about following his suggestions, and in the end I didn't like the effect. I felt I had damaged the paper instead but he was fine with it. Next time I think I'll follow my instincts instead. Overall, I like the drawing though and will be putting it up on the website as soon as I take a photograph of the final drawing.
Looking back at photographs and paintings I have done in the past, I really have enjoyed taking photos of older people and painting them with oils. I've been wondering about my own style of painting and my signature, and I think for a while I may spend sometime creating this type of artwork, since it speaks to me. I would love to hear your feedback on this.
Have a wonderful Spring break.
