And of course when it is hot like this not many people want to come out and walk around at the farmers market. So sales have been slow and I have been playing with my pencils!
This is graphite pencil on Birch plywood.
Kind of reminds me of an underwater seascape.
I have also been playing around with my Dremel tool, I've been trying engraving.
I've also been trying wood-burning. And guess what ... I still come back to the pencils.
Turns out both in engraving and wood-burning are very very difficult. I am trying to come up with something that I can add onto my table at the farmers market to sell with my baskets.
This will probably be just a practice piece, but now I'll show you the practice piece from this morning...where I had every tool in the house out trying to figure out what I wanted to do.
This was the first design and you can even see I tried color pencil.
I guess as far as drawing, without proper instruction I'll just stick to the pencils. I'll keep you posted.
Oh yeah and this is a piece I was doing on paper. This is the inspiration piece.
This is my version.
Not quite done yet, not the greatest paper, so I'm not sure I will finish it.
