I spent the first part of my workday kinda experimenting with some ACEOs.
Just trying out some new ways of drawing and using gouache.
It was fun :)
I don't think that these are really done yet...but here is was I have so far...
I am really considering the collage elements in my work, and wondering if that is a direction that I continue to keep working in. I don't really know. I feel like I have been doing it for so long that I don't really know what else I would do...
I prepped some panels earlier today and I am planning on using them in another upcoming experiment. No collage...we shall see, and of course I will post photos.
I really took my time with these newly prepped panels. They are beautiful. They aren't done yet, but I will post some pictures of them when they are. Janice, or anyone else that might be curious, you can e-mail me if you'd like to know the secrets to beautifully prepped panels :)
They are so smooth, and white, and beautiful. Like porcelain. I almost don't want to paint on them. The surface is amazing, and I love drawing on it...maybe that will be part of my experiment. I have no idea, but I am really excited about them.
I also have some larger panels ready for work. I am really excited about these too. I think I might do some more water towers and bridges on them. I have a lot of images from New York that I still haven't used and I think I might use them for these.
So yeah. That's what I did today. I still have one more coat of gesso to do on the new panels, so I should get on that.
Oh! and I was on the front page today :)
