I started a new collage, but having a tough time placing some of the pieces together. This resulted in a bunch of separate pieces that I'll eventually use.
I finally got around to working on these sketches more. They're not perfect, but much better than before.
Many go out to bars to hang out with their friends on a Saturday. I like to work in my quiet art studio. Tonight I gessoed two wood panels, cradled a small panel, broke a mirror, and then sorted the pieces.
I want to be able to create small paintings at home, so I've collated a small kit which includes paint jars.
Many of the drawings did not turn out great, but it was still a great experience.
Over the years, I have collected quite a few pastel sets and often there are colors I would never use. I learned online how to make new pastels from the old. I use browns a lot in my sketches, so tried an experiment. The results were not too bad, especially considering they were unusable for me.
I think I'll buy a cheap and small mortar and pestle to make the job easier because I'd like to make a lot more.
I designed, printed, and added labels to the jars I bought. I will be working with only five colors, so the job wasn't too bad.
I also tried an experiment to glue together a cradle for a wood panel. I don't have corner clamps.
