lest we forget

just a teensy post this evening, parce que i won't be able to post tomorrow night as i am off to see jack johnson
*squeals rather melodramatically*
i've been a bit busy the past few days (i know, i know, such a cliche), but for a worthwhile cause!

this is what i've been working on, my mood board for the still life part of my art a-level. basically, they put loaaads of stuff in the middle of our study room (a ladder, skulls, scales, bottles, corks, feathers, plants, sheet music, rocks & more even more random things) & we chose which parts we liked best & made studies of them.

i really liked the poppy heads, especially as the light in the art room gave them a slightly blue-ish hue.
this is the photograph i'm drawing for my final piece in oil pastel. i know oil pastel sounds a tad child-with-crayons, but i love it if it's all blended together. sort of like a cross between coloring pencils & acrylic paint, or at least that's what my little mixed up mind likes to make of it.
that's all for today i'm afraid, my laptop battery cable is utterly broken (possibly) beyond repair & i have to literally squeeze the two pieces together to keep the battery charging! now, i'm sure this can't be safe & it's certainly making my fingers very sore & hot. i'll sign off now to ensure i don't get electrocuted or something.
oh dear, what an ominous note to end this on!
goodnight, and also good day to you all, sirs. or maybe madams?

  2. You DEFINITELY need to post the final product! It certainly looks super interesting! And the mood board looks fabulous.

    I've never made a mood board, but I feel like I'd be a "real artist" if I made one! Haha. So yay! You're like a real artist! ;)

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
