|©2012, R.L. Delight, Illuminating Conversations, 6"x6" oil on panel|
I consulted with my in-house builder, who I am conveniently married to, and he popped over to the hardware store and brought home a sheet of masonite. He very kindly cut a large piece for me to use for a drawing board. No seams, all one plane, that's the ticket! As a bonus, the extra masonite will be cut into panels for me to paint on.
I went ahead and started the drawing over again. It is going a lot faster and smoother this time. I am also making a video of the work in progress which will be shown when the work is finished.
The weather has been lovely, not too warm and not freezing cold. I had planned to get out to do a bit of plein air painting but wanted to build a special prop first. The prop is built and will have its debut when the conditions are right. There will be pictures by and by.
A fairly short and simple post as there is not a lot to show and tell at this time. The past couple of posts I have shared a few art links I enjoy. I would love to add to my resources so if anyone has a few favorite art links, feel free to leave a comment or comment on my Facebook page (link on the right of blog).
