Finally, there's a very strong chance I'm buying a few sculptures, starting with this once he finishes the column for it to rest on:

Okay, that's fucking *brilliant*.
Yeah, the artist is incredible, no one knows he exists. He's working on like 6 things for me right now.

Finally got something posted to share.  I still have a bunch more of my 100 day project stuff to get decent photos of.

Fanart piece I did as a gift for a friend.  It's heading out to her in the mail as of today.

That's lovely! Feels like it belongs in a beautifully illustrated children's book.

Though I think art collection is a different thread than art creation...  why so serious?

Might want to add another gallery to your list, IX Gallery from the folks who run IlluXCon. Mostly fantasy illustration ala Frazetta/Vallejo etc.

Thanks!  I tend to have far too much fun with salt in my pieces.

Thank you.  I'm not sure I could manage to illustrate an entire story, but it might be fun to try.  This was definitely fun to do, too.

Finally uploaded my latest pics to somewhere shareable.



















One thing this 100 day project has done is really allowed me to take something (what I called lacy vines) and expand and twist them into what I've been doing lately.  It's been a fun exploration so far and something I'm going to keep pushing.  The last pic posted was finished last night, just lines on a watercolor background.

Oh, almost forgot - that easel is incredible looking, Sky!  I'd love to have room in my office for any easel, but that would involve some serious reconfiguring of the space and I'm really not up for that.  Plus, the husband won't let me pull the carpet up.

The 30-day challenge I ran on FB in December was a critical piece in my progression as an artist. Developing sketchbook discipline was so tough, but those challenges really kick things up a notch.

Had a plein air drawing lesson with my painting instructor today in Little Falls. Got a late start due to rain, had about an hour before the actors had to hit the stage for some Shakespeare. Love the scene they fell into.

Nice!

What kind of board is that you're using?  I need to look something like that up to do some plein air watercolors.  I've decided to want to get outside and sketch/paint a bit to stretch beyond just doing abstracts.

There's nothing wrong with doing abstracts, but I -personally- feel like I'm limiting myself, even though I love doing them.

Just an 18x18 drawing board. I bought it a while ago, I'd rather have straight masonite without the handle or integrated clip but I can't seem to find 1/4" masonite anymore. Not commonly used like it was before.

Masonite is a brand name and still pretty commonly used, they probably have it but stocked as something else.

Masonite is GP's copyrighted name for hardboard. The dark brown stuff (which doesn't start to disintegrate the instant water hits it) is "tempered hardboard", as per Merusk's link :)

I'm aware it's tempered hardboard. I'm old and that's what we old timers call it. Only kids at shitty chain stores don't know what I mean. The stuff the chains stock is too thin and bendy for use as an art board, 1/4" or 5/8" is ideal.

I appreciate the attempt to help, though! It's been a pain in the ass because I want a couple dozen custom sized for my art class thing. I've got what passes for a larger board from the school, but it's boards glued up: fine for propping a sketchpad on, but no bueno for clipping a sheet to, as the seams show. I could sand and poly it, but I'd rather just have the stuff I know works!

If you are wanting something as thick as possibly 5/8" you could try 1/2" MDO, which is a sheet of 1/2 plywood covered by a very thin layer of MDF. There are places that will sell MDF as thin as 1/4" but it is extremely brittle.

You could also look at one of the variants of Gator Board which would be both more durable than MDF and about as light as you can get. Expensive though.

Meanwhile I'm going "3/16 is only 1/16" smaller than 1/4" it's fine.."

Trying to mix Carolina Blue is interesting, especially in watercolor.  Have a commission for one of my "splatter paintings" as my friend calls them, but it's for a friend of hers and she wants Carolina Blue.  I'm working with tube paints for the first time (I've had them for a long while, just prefer using my liquid ones more) so that will be a learning experience because they flow differently than liquid paints do.

The trick is black.

(I did a series of texture studies in my final year of school and one of them was mostly blue, and I came across carolina blue on accident with 2 shades of blue, black, and white).

Edit: The other option is to just use Cerulean Blue Chromium - it's a close enough approximation to the untrained eye and frankly, fuck the tarheels.

Ha!  I ended up going with Cerulean Blue and China White, so it was close enough.

Friend likes the resulting painting, so I think I got it in one, but The way the tube paints worked on the paper just made me somewhat dissatisfied.  It feels thick compared to my liquid paints that I'm not sure if it's just me not being familiar with using them or if it's just because there is more pigment floating in the water.  Still, I opened the Prussian Blue and fell in love with that shade, so I'm going to keep playing with it for a bit.

Bad photo of final result:
