Here is the project for Spring/ Summer. This one has no title yet, but that will come by the end. I have to say, my first thought was that this would be a relatively straightforward drawing/painting experience. Of course, an all grass background would be a challenge for me to paint, and that’s where I anticipated the most struggles to occur. (My weakness has always been foliage and landscapes.) I never dreamed that drawing a baseball glove would be as complicated as it turned out to be! Now, I never thought that it would be a simple thing to do, but it was much more difficult than I thought. I am very happy with how it turned out, though. And, after working out a few techniques on scrap paper, I have a plan of attack for the background now, and I feel much less anxious about it. The painting process has been fun and joyful (exactly what it’s supposed to to be) . I always plan out my paintings before I start, and I learn something new every time I paint. The early planning and struggling has seemed to pay off this time especially. I hope you like it, stay tuned for more progress updates. 😄
