Staying cool

The temperatures are in the 100's this week, so I am staying inside and doing quiet projects!

Here are some more sketchbook pieces influence by Rebecca Blair. There is so much much to learn in these exercises, balance, design, techniques and color.



The mandala for this month was done with markers and colored pencil.

Lots of ideas

Yes, I continue to follow work by Rebecca Blair. Here are a few pages from my workbook.



But, I do continue doing figure drawing. Always trying to improve.
 It is so great to be in the room with some really talented artist!





The journey continues!!

New mandala challenge

Yes, I've decided to continue doing a mandala each month for the year 2017. However, I have decided to use the same basic layout for each of the 12 months. January was done in watercolor and set the tone for the this idea.



For February I decided to use colored pencils. Actually, this is the second one for this month as I was not pleased with the first one.





 Since I am constantly learning, this project continues to push me. So, I am going to take a colored pencil class to improve my understanding and technique. Now it is officially March which means that the next piece will soon be in the making.
