I've been working on my little art projects today. I got so involved in what I was doing that I forgot to eat! Good way to stay slim, I guess?
Anyway, I just had a bagel and a glass of orange juice so I'm good to go for a while!
I've added some detail to my watercolors with colored pencils.
Now I'm making mats and frames for them. Balsa wood seems to be the easiest to cut so I'll probably used that. Not sure if I'll stain or paint the frames?
Before I put them together, I need to seal them. I found out how to do that at David Castle Art. David uses Krylon clear gloss spray. David shares not only his art, but his tips and techniques too.
I also love The Painted Garden. Erin does the most beautiful and colorful paintings! I love her blog and her cute dog, Bentley, who assists her in finding her inspiration.
Erin shows how she makes her paintings, from her sketch to the finished painting. This little scarecrow is featured on her blog today. I made a mini one just by following her instructions. Then I made an easel, painter's palette and teeny tiny little paint brushes for the artist at work! Thanks Erin for your inspiration!
Hope you enjoy your day!
