I'm working on a project themed on my favorite bee balm. Have I mentioned I just love that flower? Today I made a few sketches, and started playing with oil pastels. not sure if this is how I'm going to create what I have in mind, though...
This is the best sketch... if I keep practicing, I'll get better. So they say. :)
And is the best oil pastel sketch of the bunch. I sucketh at them thus far, however see improvement as I keep working on it. I want a bit of an abstract look to the end product.
And this is the photo I used as my model.
I've just realized we have only three more days in our 30 Day Challenge. The month has flown by! This has been a fun experiment, as I've done separate art for this challenge and for the Project 365 2011 I'm doing this year. I have engrained the art habit in myself doing art every day, and I plan to keep it up. A little bit of art a day, helps keep the doldrums at bay. Ha! :)
