Drawing some pots


Just a drawing of some pots.  Pots thrown by someone else--not me.  Tonight I felt like throwing some pots, but since that wasn't an option I did other things--I went around gathering up random pieces and junk from junk drawers for tomorrow night's art class.  We're going to try some "Found object stamping," and if we have time play a "doodle dice" type of drawing game that I put together.

The space between

houses
buildings
follow directions. Line
up.
Look up.
The city is good at making piles of things.
People move
Up.
making room.
Finding
room. Starting

Getting ready for spring- Awesome Cosmos

Sketching from the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog.  This is one of the first tablet drawings I did...kind of just like, hey, here's some flowers!  But then the flowers were so fluffy and pretty that I wanted to puke.

So when I looked at the sketch I thought, "no way would I want to buy those, they are so...pink." What would make me want to buy them? Maybe if someone told me they're un-f-ing believable.

...I think I might buy these, perhaps they will knock my socks off.

room for trees

So I missed a day.  Yesterday I did not post a sketch, but I did throw some pots in the pottery studio....I should take a picture of some practice pots and put that up.  Goal for this week was a mug I can drink coffee out of.  Nothing awesome, but I feel like I got things done.

I think I might add to this sketch.  Most things I'm like eh, time to move on.  But I think there's room for more here.  Kind of like the miniatures I used to do, they're great for filling up with itty bitty details.

Things heard


I've been considering going on an illustration kick of sorts.  Things said, things heard.  This one took the cake.

Can I just say that being an art teacher is awesome?

...it gives me a great excuse to try silly things, and I can be all like, "yup, those are analogous colors!  wahoo!"  High five for knowing that blue and green are next to each other on the color wheel.  And we can all agree that drawing is totally awesome!!!!

Who else is excited for Wednesday nights?
