I realized I missed a blogging day on Saturday. Since my mate and I take our weekends on Sunday and Monday and this weekend was a holiday weekend for many, I got a bit confused. Add to that moving our regular band rehearsal day to Sunday and, well, I lost track of which day was what.
I did work in the studio on Saturday getting things fixed, moved, cleaned, and ready for the next phase. I also attended life drawing on Sunday, which further confused things. I haven't been to life drawing for a month or so, unusual for me. Thankfully I did remember how to draw the human figure and we had an excellent model.
I spent today in the studio as well setting up the still life elements of a marine painting (more later) and making some new tools to take out in the field with me. I also got out to the beach this afternoon with my sketchbook. One of the perks of going so hard on plein air painting in January is that I discovered fairly quickly what is working for me and what isn't. I am making a wet panel carrier for myself and would eventually like to get a different plein air set up.
Here is what I plan for the upcoming weeks:
- Plein Air sessions: 2-3 times a week depending on weather and tide. 3- one hour wave studies per session.
- Working on larger more formal paintings.
- Self-portrait studies
- Munsell color studies
- Sunday life drawing whenever possible.
I did finish the Frederick Waugh book and found it very interesting. I will have a report on that soon.
We have a regular winter storm forecast for Friday. I will need to break off my Thursday afternoon to head north for supplies for our pantry and home.I am always amazed to read about other women artists who do all this and rear kids too! I don't have the kids, just one fuzzy red dog and a husband and I stay plenty busy. I will have pictures of my home built panel carrier soon!
