A Little Birdie Told Me...

Alright so I'm in between two projects right now. I think in my last post I mentioned the first one (?) but in case I didn't  it's the middle crinoid from my previous colored pencil work that I promised to finish on black paper and it will be drawn with pastel colored pencils. (light colors) The sketches above are for my other project, which is inspired by the mountains and galleries of Park city, Utah. ( my dad and I went on a ski trip there over the President's day weekend) The mountains where HUGE! and extensive, they seemed to go on forever. Driving between them made my dad and I feet so small. ( imagine what it must've been like for the pioneers) so anyway, the photos of the mountains by themselves were boring, I did a couple sketches for picture ideas and shot some photos of a bird i saw at lunch while we were skiing at Deer ski mountain. Then dad and I went to Park city to see the galleries and I was really inspired by this one artists style with mixed media. she used this cool patterned fabric which would show through these super colorful landscapes so I thought I'd try it and enforce some of the techniques I read about on how to make artwork based off photographs. that last colored picture is made with acrylic. I used yellow and red/ littleblue first then applied solid blue as my layer sequence. (they're mostly diluted)
