spawns beginning of new piece
I'm actually very excited because I finally found a writing tool that I can sketch the basic design on my boards
- a good old Bic felt tip marker
Now just so you all understand I always start with the background part of my paintings. It usually takes quite a few days (and layers) to get the effect I'm looking for. Now once this part is accomplished I then try to rough sketch the design on top. Howeverrrrrrrr...........pencil, colored pencil, charcoal, chalk, grease pencil, & crayon won't write on my many layers of painted background. Now sharpie works just fine however the permanent part defeats sketch/re-sketch/erase/try again/sketch/adjust/re-sketch method of creating. Now my delightful little discovery of the versatile Bic felt tip marker made my day. I can sketch away AND actually see what I'm sketching AND if I'm not happy with it - a damp paper towel wipes it away. Things like this are what make me happy
And baby bunnies in my yard....they're so frickin cute!
