We had our first assignment. We will probably get another one on Tuesday. Already I am behind on work. Thankfully it is a 'work at our own pace' kind of class. To have a better understanding of how our pencils work, we set up a color swatch book. I got carried away with that (nothing unusual there) and included every color pencil I have. Well, the water soluble ones, at least. I didn't include the pastels, or chalks, or the really old pencils, or plain colored pencils, or any of my pan watercolors. (Wait! Maybe I should go back and do those, too, but then I'll be like two weeks behind instead of just one. Way to make an impression on the teacher! Hahaha!)
But, really. I had no idea I had all these beautiful colors! (Kali's highlights in her hair are that next to last color.) I pretty much use my derwent inktense pencils all the time. Now I'll learn how to use them effectively, and include all these others I have like the metallics, the graphitints, the blocks. Yes, I am shameless. What can I say? It would appear I have three drawings to get done and colored this week. Which ends tomorrow night. Yeah, I'm not going to make it.
What's that you say? What does this have to do with my water color pencil class, homework not completed, three sketches and coloring homework to go issue I'm dealing with? Not a thing. But isn't this cute???
Stay tuned to see if I get bailed out in time. Stay tuned to see if Dion is still talking with me when she sees what a difficult student I am. (And, of course, you know I am only kidding. Mostly. Hehehehehe!) Can you spell incorrigible? Homework to follow. Soon. I hope. That's the plan.
