I had intended to head back to the Lars portrait after last week's colored vacation. But I made such progress (well, at least progress for me) I decided to go a little while longer on it. With the colored pencils I can make more of a statement it seems with less detail than the graphite pencils require. So, I'll carry on again this week of my hydrangea odyssey...and I just might carry on until it's done because it's so small. (4 x 6".)
So, without further ado:
Oh, some people on wetcanvas have asked about the indentation they see...and I'm assuming they're talking about the sketched outline I made. That was purely unintentional and was made with a sharp, hard pencil. Won't do that again...it's making it hard to lay down color in the micro-canyons from the pencil. It's a royal pain in the butt. I'll use a softer pencil next time.
Once I get this piece done, I'll be offering it up as prints and cards. I would like to enter this in some local juried art shows under "art of Rhode Island" and stuff like that. It's been ages since I've had a "recent" work and it will be fun to try that scene again. Once I see if this little gem makes it way into the shows, I'll offer the original up for sale too...framed and matted.
OH! I have to say I'm sorry about the lag on me noticing comments to my posts!! I'm not used to people interacting on here! :) I'll make sure I check in here other than making posts to respond and chat with my readers!
