When watercolours won't behave, pull out the ink pen and Prismacolors.

Finished, for now. Time to move to the next section.

Prang watercolours with Winsor and Newton process black + Van Gogh burnt umber. On T.H.Saunders 140lb hot press watercolour paper. 9.5"x5"

I seriously need to refine my children-sketching abilities. Heck, people in general, I need to get better at drawing people.

Next semester's task .-.

Note to self: Remember the illustration board from now on.

Watercolours ROCK. I have so much work to do before monday at noon :D

Thursday I find out results for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival cover art competition. Keep your fingers crossed.

The cosmic energies should be starting to move in your direction when it comes to social and communication matters, and you should soon be able to figure out a new way to solve an old problem. Some issues that have been causing you a certain amount of anxiety could finally be starting to ease up a bit, and your intuition ought to be able to serve you very well right now.

Ah, yes. Working on my illustration project -- little boy sleeping! And, omg, tiny hairs by a tiny little 10/0 brush! Individual tiny little black hairs on that boy's head xx;

Tiny little fingers!

Its good to be back in watercolours again.

So there's the book cover. Watercolours and gouache over pen and ink on watercolour paper. The scanner isn't acting properly so I took what ended up being a rather blurry picture of it. Who cares, anyway, right? I'll end up finding a properly working scanner soon and I'll impose the title and so forth digitally.



And there's the HUNTERS SUCK yarn. 102 yards, two-ply, not for sale. In response to [livejournal.com profile] fiber_friday's prompt 'Leftovers' for December 2nd. Kool-Aid dyed scottish black face wool plyed with a natural brown English Leicester, Salish, and Merino cross wool. Harsh and soft all rolled into one.

That's all for now. Time to go work on my sculpture final. And possibly dinner.

My lace-weight yarn is driving me insane... because it is lace-weight. Ish. That's two-ply in grease (unwashed, raw wool) yarn knitted with American size 7 knitting needles. Ten stitches across. One inch. By, uh... about seven inches, I guess (I'm too lazy to go about finding one of my rulers... they're in one of my boxes. Somewhere)... random stitches. And stockinette! Because I just learned how with straight needles. After having knitted for ten years.

And because I am boldly moving into the textiles, I'm reading up on business stuff. No touchy, it's mine. Love my books.



Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] spinningfiber. Because I can.

EDIT:

I've gotten a few pictures together of what little progress I've made on the watercolour... eh. I hope I am motivated soon to get it finished because I really do like it.

Cut because there are too many pictures floating about as it is =P )

Watercolours, this time. Coming along pretty decently and I'm having a blast with my corner, there :D (...yeah, just forget about my corner, it's suggestive colour/form)
