So Wednesday and a mix of drawing and Lino work today. I had a small block of the easy cut material left and decided to make a small printing stamp with it. I took a photo of a local paddleboarder at the weekend and based the stamp on him.
The cutting was better but showed the need for less speed for accuracy
I haven’t printed with this yet I have put it aside and decided I am going to make some other Watersports based stampers and then can try making some scenes with them.
My main task today was to continue to develop my commission drawing. Again great progress made. In the end as the sand was so pale I just used ProMarker blender. The sky needed the use of blender to fade it and the clouds in the sky.
My client was working again today so before the end of both our workdays they saw and approved the piece. On Friday I will make an envelope as the card is A4 size on 300gsm watercolour paper.
I did some research on Great Art and mail order – lots of issues from November to the present on trustpilot so I will just keep returning to them to hopefully keep my order in their sights.
A friend sent me details of a children’s book author looking for someone to do illustrations for their new book that links to water based adventures. I have emailed them to express an interest, whether they get back to me or not we will see.
Off to the printer tomorrow so the new Watersports cards can go on sale on Friday and then two days of panorama and Lino project based work for me I think.
Two couples visited today and great chats. Some cards bought and more possible return visitors when it is warmer to try art for fun.
Another positive day.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-7420-6568942edc488' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=7420&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-7420-6568942edc488' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-7420-6568942edc488' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
