One of the art blogs that I consider a must read is Katherine Tyrell’s “Making a Mark“. I visit it often. It contains all kinds of useful information and links for artists. A couple of days ago I followed a link from there to Margaret Stiefvater’s post on “How to Juggle and other Parlor Tricks“. The post struck a chord in me and if you too have been procrastinating and need to give yourself a swift kick in the rear to get going, go read it! I’m hoping that the effects last at least a few days. I’m sure I’ll be heading back in a few days to refresh my conveniently failing memory. 😀
I started a couple of watercolour portraits of Andrew Wyeth yesterday. Just the first wash layer has been put in. And this morning [wonder of wonders!] I made another upside down Pen & Ink drawing. I used brown ink in the Rotring and black drawing ink for the wash. It doesnt resemble the artist, Maqbool Fida Hussain, who I was trying to capture but I do like most things that I make and this one is no exception. 😛 I will give it another go but right side up. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for me to succeed in my goal of doing some art related activity everyday.
