*pops in all disheveled with a pile of projects in my arms*
I meant to have a lot more done by the end of this semester! I have just had so much go on with my family and all the medical stuff we have been going through that I didn't have the time to do as much as I normally do, but I do have quite a few assignments to turn in here in the last hour!
Class/Challenge/House Pride: DA Lessons with Harry: Disarming
Project Name: Mind clearing doodle
For this project we were supposed to get rid of something standing in the way of completing a project, and often when I sit down to do some art or a craft I have a lot of little wiggles and random thoughts to get out so sometimes I do a doodle first to clear my mind and help me focus on my more structured task. Here is one of those mind clearing doodles:
Class/Challenge/House Pride: DA: Lessons With Harry: Impediment Jinx
Project Name: Soft Lacy Red Scarf
For this project we were supposed to create something that stops something so I created a soft lacy red scarf to stop the cold wind from hitting the wearers face.
Class/Challenge/House Pride:DA: Lessons With Harry: Reductor Curse
Project Name: Tiny T-Rex painting
For this project I decided to draw a little sketchy t-rex with a vivid watercolor background. As you know Dinosaurs are very very big so to reduce one down to a 5x7 painting is a seriously effective use of the reductor curse.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: DA: Lessons With Harry: Protean Charm
Project Name: Peacock Lady Drawing
Since the new year I have been trying to draw every day and focus more on my fine art. This peacock lady is one of those daily drawings and also fits this assignment because she is in disguise as a peacock.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: January Detention
Project Name:Lucky Cat Drawing
WIP. I started this drawing a while ago and didn't pick it up until a few days ago and finished it My breakthrough was the addition of the cat. At that point it went from just a doodle to an actual art piece. I'm pretty proud of it.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: February Detention: All Black
Project Name: All Black Doodle
For this project I again called upon my desire to draw something every day even if it is just a doodle. This one turned out rather elaborate and all black so I felt it appropriate for this assignment.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
Project Name: Arachnomancy, weaving a web of warmth.
For this assignment I studied the intricate weaving of spider webs and decided to weave a web of warmth by making this blue lacy scarf.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
Project Name: Free Pen Drawing
As an artist materials can get pretty expensive, but if you are resourceful you can find less expensive and even free things to make art with. A few years ago I noticed the frequency at which free pens are given out in our society, free pens come from everywhere from doctor's offices to trade conferences and hotels. The free pens you collect in your life can tell a story of where you have been and the kind of daily business you conduct. I have always wanted to do a large art series based on these ideas. So for this assignment I used a free pen that I got at the W hotel in Dallas and made a small drawing to practice and get to know what it feels like to draw with these types of pens for a future larger project. Here is my little free pen drawing:
I seem to draw sugar skulls a lot when I don't know what else to draw, but the cala lilies were a new thing for me so drawing them allowed me to stretch a little.
There are my last minute turn ins. I hope to have a lot more next semester. Including that OWL I promised I was going to finish!
