I am happy when I know I'm making progress. It show me that I'm getting better or closer to where I want to be. Progress is good.
Anyways, speaking of progress in my artworkings, I am working on my next illustration. I haven't posted any progress from my illustrations for awhile so I'm finally doing it. yay! Arn't ya'll so excited. Well here you have it. Farm animals playing bluegrass music! Based on my memory of playing with some friends in our bluegrassy band for our fund raiser for our trip to Paraguay.
It's been pointed out that an accordion is not a bluegrass instrument...yeah..I didn't think it was. But I just really wanted to draw an accordion. And besides, the pig looks adorable playing an accordion don't ya think? So thats my excuse. The accordion stays so now they are farm animals playing folk music. So there.
So I started painting the folk playing animals and I'm having trouble figuring out the lighting of the painting. My painting of Campfire Friends, I did a cool blue wash first and added the highlights of the fire. But this painting of the farm animals I'm doing the opposite. A warm burnt sienna wash and painting in the cools and then the highlights. It messed me up in the beginning but I started painting today and I think I'm going in the right direction.
And I'm also creating hipster animals. I will update you later with that...
