Flatrock - watercolour
My art has been put on a backburner this week for the most part as I gear up for tomorrow's workshop. Most things are in place and it should be a fun day playing with the fishies.
Once the workshop is behind me I can finish up the paperwork for it, submit it and that's another chapter closed. What have I learned by doing this project?
- I can write a proposal with sufficient substance that it secures an art grant.
- I can produce a body of work in a specific time frame while working full time at a day job.
- I can compartmentalize my day job and my art.
- I can find extra hours to work on a project.
- I can juggle project work, as well as produce other non-related pieces of art.
- I can still keep the blog going with 3 or more posts a week while working on the project.
Meanwhile, here's a small update on the watercolour of the rocks leading out into the sea at Flatrock. It still has a ways to go, but heading in the right direction. The rock detail is time consuming as there are so many layers and shapes. Its a good exercise in concentration and like most complex pieces, once broken down into sections, it comes together more easily.
