Juggling art

Fallen Fairy - value sketch
copyright Jeanette Jobson

I'm currently juggling five drawing projects.
  • I'm trying to finish up the drawing for the Virtual Sketch project that is due tomorrow.
  • I started the background for a cosmos flower in coloured pencil
  • I'm still working on the 1460 self portrait - nearly there.
  • I'm on stage three of the glass tutorial
  • I've completed the value sketch for a portrait of a friend's daughter, which is above.
I love this last pose. The child is three and loves to dance. She was whirling around, wearing a floaty chiffon dress - her 'princess dress' as she likes to call it. She collapsed in a heap on the floor with the dress billowing around her and sunlight highlighting the dark shadows around her. It was perfect, so I took some photos. I will see what medium I do this in. It may end up as pencil or perhaps coloured pencil. I never seem to know until I turn my attention to the piece what it will become.

Jeanette, I'm in the same boat. I have so many art projects in the works that I've lost count. It's not like me. I'm normally a one project at a time type girl. Of course I'm mid-way through reading several books now too, so maybe I'm changing!

You're right, this is a wonderful pose...I'm anxious to see what you decide to do with it. It must be the season, everyone I talk with is in the "multitasking" mode. Myself, I work better when I have time orientated goals...completing one and moving on to the next.
