Last one in Aya's Mole: Scott at Silk Creek
I was going to see if Hennie could guess who this was and where it was taken. But that seemed too difficult in the post, so here it is. I was practicing my wet into wet water-color techniques. Click image to view larger.
In a day or two, I will mail the mole to Mike if it's OK with him. Mike? (I want hubby to see my latest painting and he's working late.)
I need to take lessons from Anders on making wrinkles look realistic.
I am excited about this and the marker on I recently did of Keith from memory--becasue I want to illustrate my own kids books, and I am making progress toward being good enough to do so!
I probably have a ways to go--but I've come a long ways and this picture probably could be in a book. (It could be better, but hey, I'm learning!)
I'm a messy painter. Here's a picture of my workspace at the dining room table at home (not at the studio), totally unadulterated image--nothing moved or changed. The waxed paper is to protect the table cloth and piles of junk under my work! (Click to view larger.)
Steve, you can see the double stick table and envelopes still ont he table from my making your cards.
