365 Fays of Art: Day 234 – Back to Dreaming in the Clouds

The challenge: Create some form of visual art, no matter how small, each day for a full year.

I need to get back to watercolor. I returned to my “Dreaming in the Clouds” project from Dreamscapes Fantasy Worlds by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. I’m doing the whole picture on an 8”x10” cold press (100% cotton Strathmore Ready Cut) and two smaller part of the picture on 5”x7” hot press (Strathmore Ready Cut as well).

I didn’t do as much as I wanted to today, because I need to plan out the week and get a to do list written of if all the things that have backed up from when I was working while my daughter was in school. (It’s on my preliminary to do list.) Basically, I:

  • Darkened the upper left corner with some of the leftover pigment I let dry in my pallet.
  • Blended in the cloud drops with clean water.
  • Lifted out some of the clouds.

It doesn’t sound like much. Tomorrow I will try to darken the cloud things and make them look more like clouds.

I was hoping to get more done on the cassowary, but I have to cook dinner. Have a great Sunday, everyone, and remember that football season is coming!
