I have been working on making different types of books, from instant books to coptic stitched books.  It has been really fun and enlightening.  We should all get out and try our hands a making books and see the joy it can bring to your day.

( #figure #drawing #artistic #burgener )
Figure Drawing, why did it have to be figure drawing.  I have always had a problem with figure drawing.  From head to body proportions to facial feature placement, I just cannot seem to get it right.
So to combat my problem, I decided take a figure drawing class from a local college (CEI).  This class will be taught by Marina Zavalova and will go for 6 sessions (weeks).  You can see my drawing from the third week below.

Watercolor 101 - Molly Murrah (creativelive.com) - week 5

( #watercolor #paper #creativelive #artistic #burgener ) Week 5 - Lectures 24-28
In the 5th week of lectures the main focus was about different technique.

Using salt to remove some of the paint when it is wet, to make a snowy background.  (Remove the salt when the paint is dry.)

Splattering - take a paintbrush with paint in it and hit it against your hand to allow paint to fall from the bristles onto the paper in a splatter style (on wet or dry paper for different effects).  You can also spray the splatter after to create a new texture.  (beach scene, rocks)
Dry Brush - Your brush should be very dry and then just put the tip of the brush into the paint.

Scraping - using razor blade, credit cards, or other stiff edge object. (use thicker paints) (rocks, mountains)

Use a sponge for tree branches...

Use alcohol to create a fish-eye effect.

Use sandpaper to remove paint from the paper hills.

Reserving your white and lifting paint. (masking fluid apply to dry paper, making fluid dissolves…

Watercolor 101 - Molly Murrah (creativelive.com) - week 4

( #watercolor #paper #creativelive #artistic #burgener ) Week 4 - Lectures 19-23
In the 4th week of lectures the main focus was about transferring images to your watercolor paper.  Contouring an image was practice and using grids was used to transfer images.  A short discussion about 1 and 2 point perspective was covered.  The instructor told the class to go find images and to look at if they were in 1 or 2 point perspective.
Tony Couch: 7 Elements of Design ShapeSizeLineDirectionTextureColorValue Salt Effect in water color is all about timing.. Too early, Too late, or just right. Play with the rule of thirds... don't put thing just in the center of the paper.

Play around with cropping to create interesting images.
