Having patience is a good thing. I think I need more patience. I just want things to happen now when I want them to happen. Sometimes impatience gets me in trouble. I think ya'll can agree.
Well, I started painting my editorial illustration for the article, Oubliette, And I didn't want to stretch the paper. Stretching the watercolor paper makes it so the paper is very tight and there won't be any bumps or lumps in the paper when you get the paper wet...Uhhhhh because i didn't do that I got exactly that.
But I think that the painting is going well. I'm the kind of artist that likes to work fast but I think I go a little too fast. Because when I rush, things don't turn out the way I want them. my work can look messy, out of proportion, and just...blahh. So I'm trying to go slow. I need to slow down so I can produce nice work.
My impatience with drawing and painting kind of relates to my life right now. I need to learn to be patient. Because if I'm impatience I just end up in a mess. Lord give me patience.
Anyways, here is my illustration so far. So just to remind you what this illustration is about, it's the moment after the father find his daughter in the attic. He rescues her and takes her to their favorite diner, Conrad's. Can you imagine what the girl must be feeling? What the father is feeling?What do you think?
I am an artist who enjoys the outdoors and living in Michigan where I can live in all four seasons in one day. I love cake or anything that is sweet!
