The Wave - A study on water
I've been working on this study for a few weeks off and on, trying to get the look of the ocean, it's color and action. This was an exercise for a larger piece coming next and my first try on Canson Edition paper. Not sure I like this paper as it doesn't take the layers my normal Stonehenge does or for that matter what my HP Watercolor paper does. But a Study is just that but I do see some uses for this paper in adding it to my artists journal as is is supposed to handle mixed media too! For this I used 100% colored pencil, no wc pencil under painting. But I will have to try that out when I add it to my artist journal.
After dealing with many on going internet issues (2 months with Verizon checking my lines, modems and such) I hope to get caught up on blogging and other communications. But today I'm planning on getting my newest water themed piece of and running. Line drawing, and transfer to board on the agenda. Will show you the progress in a few days.
What art have you created today!
