I hope you got some sweet things for Valentine's Day. Here is just part of my haul! ha ha (And yes, those are socks with hearts and frogs on them. I don't know where Sweetie finds these things, but I thought they were extra cute.)
The two books are going to be marvelous to read and view - plenty of inspiring watercolors to get me out of my rut, I hope. (One on John Singer Sargent and one on several watercolor artists from Georgia O'Keeffe to Winslow Homer and Sargent and on and on...)
I ate 3 chocolates yesterday and got a migraine an hour later :( Perhaps I should just go cold turkey with chocolate and call our lifelong romance to an end?
I also got flowers and a Starbucks card! Wheeee!!!
But I didn't just sit around eating chocolates and looking at watercolors and wearing my froggie heart socks. I even went down to my art room (after the migraine eased up with medication) and began the little black calf painting again. This time, the wall will be white.
I masked the calf off and the upper part and bottom part and splattered and sprayed water to get the look of the wall so it remains white with some splotches. Then removed the masking and did the bg and the foreground. I think I'm going to make the foreground darker and more muddy looking than green. Then I'll paint the little calf in black without using black. Last time I used Prussian Blue + Pyrrol Scarlet. I'll use a different mix this time.
