The month of October disappeared literally in the blink of an eye, with everything going on around here to do with my foster guy and his family. I was extremely grateful to have a nice 2-night mountain getaway in the mix, but I don't really have any blog worthy photos to share from that trip. This weekend, I had planned to go to Radium again, but I have come down with a stupid cold and we're supposed to get a dump of snow on Sunday here that would probably be too dangerous to drive back in. Soooo... stuck here on my weekend off, alone, sick and pms-y. Should be terrific!
I've tried the art medium of watercolor. I suck at it. I thought I might give it a try because I love looking at watercolor art (when it's done well) and I watched tutorials that made it look so easy. Thor keeps giving me helpful tips (with his art degree background, I couldn't ask for a better source of help), but no matter how much I have my mind to it, it just comes out a flop. I'm thinking I'm far better off sticking to the ink sketches I do.
Speaking of that, I've finished the Simpson River Crossing that I started a while back. I maybe just have a couple of touch ups to do, some shadows here and there. My sister had high praise for it, she really loves the bridge. If I ever get around to it, I'll post a photo of it. It took me a long time to complete. I've managed to lose the paper that I kept track of my hours on, but it was something like 20+ hours. Next, I'm going to do a drawing of a photo I took of a bench and pathway at Olive Lake. I tried to make that one a watercolor, but that crashed and burned. I think it will make a really nice ink though.
Not much else to report. I'm going to try and get back into the blogging thing, at least once a week. We shall see.
