"Ewe-nique" 8x10 mixed media on canvas
Well, some days things work, and some days... not so much.
For today's painting I adhered an old sheet of newspaper to an 8x10 canvas using matte medium, then added a thin layer of gesso. (I kept the gesso slightly thicker along the edge so I could scratch the border squares in.) Then I drew in the sheep (ewe) and started playing with paint, prismacolors, graphite, and a little more gesso. I finished it off with a coat of beeswax.
Unfortunately, the finished product contains some pretty distracting unfixable bubbles. As a result I will not be selling this painting in my etsy shop. (Which will be opening as soon as I iron out the scanning/photographing/listing kinks.) But never fear, I will be creating another painting to replace this one in my 30 in 30 for 30 collection!
In more Art Every Day news, I just received the most wonderful email from my sister-in-law Debbie... It turns out that my very imaginative 11 year old niece, Lauren, has been inspired to create a piece of artwork every day for the month of November too. Wow... so cool. Lauren is a very talented artist and I am so excited to see what she's been up to!
