Been playing over the weekend with my new pens.... Graph'its, and the results are in..... I LOVE THEM......
After selling my pro-markers cos they didn't like Mixed Media very much..... and after talking to loads of people, I went for a skin-tone set of the Graph'its as I was promised they were fully capable of Mixed Media work...... and they are!!!
I was also very excited by this Full Moons lesson in Moonshine, Effy produced such an amazing painting, I couldn't wait to have a go.. and she was using markers as the base.. so I was all set!
I only have the one set of markers (at the moment... I have my eye on many more!!!) but I only needed the skin colours for this painting.. so off I set and got at it... and I love the results... fabulous pens.. totally fabulous!
In the absence of a rainbow full of colours with the Graph'its... I used my Giotto markers for her hair, and Derwent Aquatones for the background.......
I also finished this over the weekend..... I think I like it... :-)
Lots of exciting things are occurring right now... (but more about then after I have gotten through tomorrow, when I am having a tooth brutally ripped out... LOL.. well.. I will be asleep, but right now I am panicking!) So watch this space...... Plus I am about to start The Artists Way, a 12 week course from the book of the same name by Julia Cameron.. I have had a flick through and it looks great.. but very personal... so not sure how much will get blogged about...... I might have to start a separate tab for it all.... then you can choose to read or ignore!
Right.... Off for my final meal.... roast chicken and all the trimmings.. making it a good 'un in case I expire from sheer fright tomorrow! LOL If I make it... see you all soon....
