A Peek into my Creative Process
I bought a potted hyacinth and miniature daffodil on the way to the retreat and spent time sketching different views of each. I then created the "Daffodils in a Row" design by painting it with acrylic washes, pen and ink details and then layered on the colored pencil accents.
From left to right:
- Hyacinth and Daffodil pots in front of my water basin and behind the pencils I was using.
- My colored pencil case behind the Daffodil painting on Bristol Vellum.
- 3/4 inch Wash brush that used to paint all those tiny leaves and petals.
- Blending tools, sanding block, erasers and sharpeners
- Ott Light, acrylic paints, camera battery case behind my cd player. (Still use this one once in a while) and loose batteries. I go through a ton of batteries for my camera and usually use the rechargeable kind.
- on the far right is my basket of brushes and tools with my original sketches of the daffodils in front.
- Usually my camera is sitting right there since I take step by step pictures as I work..... oh! I was using it to take this picture!
