Trying Something New

Before I start, let me say that, no, I am not working on gradient color, thus making my photo white at the top and blue at the bottom. Haha! That would be my iphone. Sorry. It's the best I've got on the road.

I have long admired CZT Shelly Beauch's beautiful artwork which you can see here :). Her work is detailed, fine, gorgeous, and different from anything else you'll see. I love it! Shelly is from Tasmania, and she works on large scale a lot. I thought I would love to learn how to do that. So, I went to Michael's and bought a 16" x 20" Canson Bristol board to give it a go. This is what I drew during night number one. I hope to provide a step-out soon for that tulip pattern at the top. It just sort of evolved as I was drawing it out on Kali's dining room table. I am going to name it for her. 

That linking of elements I learned from Judy West, Australia, who runs the Celtic Challenge. A lot of her elements are linked. I love Judy's work, which combines doodling with patterning. She has such creative ideas. 

I will continue to work on this piece and let you see it along the way. Hopefully. Have a great week! I am currently driving back to Florida. Will be back at home soon.
