Waiting for our Wings

WAITING FOR OUR WINGS

I've added more critters and leaves and feathers to break up the strong vertical line and bring the left side over to the right side. Now I feel the eye flows around the painting.

Finished - for now. I will put this painting aside and let the critters fly.

Waiting for our Wings

Won't be long now and my critters will get their new wings. But until then, they have to make do with the wings I've created for them.


Even after enhancing the background, the composition is poor. If you compare the original composition below, with the new one above, you will see some improvement, but not enough. So I added more leaves to tie the left side to the right side. But I still see a strong vertical line down the left side.

Waiting for our Wings


I added a burnt umber glaze to soften the stippling.
Working with acrylic products has given me the luxury of not having to wait for paints to dry. 
GLAZES on the other hand - need time to dry - not drink a cup of coffee time, but get a good night sleep time.
Reminds me of my oil painting days.

Drawing in Pen and Ink - the flannel shirt

DRAWING CLASS

The flannel shirt. 
I was given a few photos of people in interesting clothing.
 I choose the flannel shirt. 
Not only was the shirt folded and wrinkled in such interesting ways, there was the pattern of the plaid fabric on top of that. 
Very fun to draw.

Waiting for our Wings


I need to bring these elements together and correct the composition. I added acrylic stippling to give it depth.

Waiting for our Wings

The wingless critters are flying with their new wings.
 They are very happy. 
I am not. The composition is poor. Way too much empty space - good for flying - but not good for this painting.

Waiting for our Wings


Trying out their new wings. How exciting - to be able to fly.
I've cut my colored pencil drawings, all the pieces of leaves and feathers and put them together with my wingless critters.

They need a place to fly, so I've created this canvas covered with acrylic stencils and textured papers.

Waiting for our Wings

These little critters come out of their warm protective cocoons expecting to have wings. Expecting to be able to fly. But there are no wings. Not yet, they have to wait. Not long, but still there is a wait. But they are resilient. They find leaves and feathers and they make their own wings. They fly. 
It's all about being creative and resourceful.


Colored pencil drawings of my wingless critters. 
While they are waiting for their wings, 
I make them some leaves and feathers.
