And when we were driving to New York, I brought my book with me and just started sketching. I did a few pages, but I really liked this one and wanted to use it for an art piece.
Well actually, it was the face that I liked. So I scanned and copied it, and then just cut out her image to put on a canvas.
For the background I collaged my painted papers that I showed you on this post, although you can't really see them--I pretty much pushed them back with an acrylic wash. And I mostly used the Caran d'Ache soluble and non-soluble crayons mixed with a little acrylics and my new happy discovery--a woodless graphite pencil--love it!!
I'm leaving again on Thursday for a 3 day art show, and I'm starting to get a little stressed--not sure if I have enough. This is the show that I've been looking forward to all year--I've never been in it before, but I've heard alot of good things. It's just outside of Cleveland, Ohio in a very nice area,
And I hope everyone had a great 4th of July--we did--it's pretty toasty here, but no rain, so I'm not complaining!
