Oooops, wrong picture…that’s my messy easel. Let’s try it again:
Okay, not t he best photo in the world, it has a hot spot, but at least I try. Anyway, this is the drawing that’s going into the silent auction. If you’re in the Connecticut area May 3, stop in….lots of fun for the children, and fun for adults, too. And you’d be supporting a good cause. That’s Pony Rides for a Purpose, the Facebook link is posted in the previous post.
Okay, this is a little anti-climactic, but here’s the preliminary sketch.
Just to mention, it’s snowing here. AGAIN!
The finished work I did after the sketch, (the sketch I liked), I felt Eh about. So, the large work has been put aside for a long, long time. I may go back to it, but right now, it’s time for other projects.
I mean, after all, February’s over…..which means it’s March…..which means it will soon be spring….which means May will be here before you know it…which means it’ll be time for Pony Rides for a Purpose, a charity I help out.
What this all is leading to, is that’s it’s time to make another drawing of a winged horse. Last year, I did this;
And I did a sketch for a logo like this:
For information about the charity, here’s the link:
Pony Rides for a Purpose
Finished. Well before the deadline. Now I have some time between this and the canvas for Aidan has a Posse, to do something for myself. The idea of a singer which appealed to me originally, is not clicking, now. Kwan Yin? Maybe…..
Anyway, the finish of “Winged Foal” for Pony Rides for a Purpose.
I think I’ve accomplished enough on “Winged Foal” to show where it’s going. I can tell I’m going to have to make the color of the horse a little more intense, as well as blending in the bottom of the background. So, in all it’s glory (so far), “Winged Foal”
(Grammar police note: I know I used the wrong “its” for showing possessive. I’m too lazy to go back and edit.)
I’m up against a deadline for this drawing, although not all that tight, and it’s my own procrastination that made it a bit of a pressure. So, I will be working a lot on this…..my beloved will just have to put up with dirty dishes.
Also, this is the date for the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens event. Hopefully, I’ll hear from them. I’d love to hear what kind of reaction “Tiger in the Jungle”, got.
Working on the winged horse….here’s where it stands now.
Important things I have learned from this project:
1. Horses are fun to draw
2. Butterfly wings are boring to draw.
3. Never work on a drawing when you think you might still have cake on the side of your hand.
Fortunately, the cake is chocolate, which goes with the color scheme…..I think I can fit it in.
Doing some work for my friend’s charity….here’s a sketch of a winged horse. It’s being revised to have a little girl on the back, and lettering :Jessica Rekos, Angel of Sandy Hook. It’s a start.
