Well, I’ve tried again at that ‘system’ that I was talking about yesterday. I found an interesing looking documentary and doodled for a bit until I had an idea. I hit upon a ‘swan lake’ sort of theme. So I drew it out. I think perhaps if I woked at it a little more, I could have come up with an image more satisfying, but I just wanted something down on paper so I could have something to work with. So now I just need to figure out how I’m going to color the background
Backgrounds. They can be so important to an image, creating a setting- sort of thing. And yet that the part I usually have no idea how I’m going to go about. One is always tentative about starting the coloring when one isn’t sure how one wants it to look. But I was spared from beginning to color, because my little sister came in at that moment so I could read more of Anne of Green Gables aloud to her.
I’ve been getting up really late these days. It bothers me. This is why school sometimes makes it more easy to get other stuff done, you are on a schedule and you have to wake up at a certain time and be ready for the day. As it is, my days have little structure to them- and I think it takes it’s toll.
But hopefully this means I have a new image to work with. I can start up again tomorrow- hopefully I’ll be able to find something to listen to by that time since I finished the documentary.
