Here we are at the end of 2016 and looking forward to 2017. It’s hard to believe how quickly the years zip by. I am really looking forward to 2017 as I have finally signed up for Level 3 Art and Design with Gail Harker. I have wanted to take this class for years and it has finally worked out so that I can. It starts in February and I’m excited to get started.
I am working hard to get my last online class completed so I edited photos, put them in the right places in PDF’s and edited videos today. So I’ve only got a bit more to go and then machine stitching on felt will be ready to go. I think that I will probably hold the first class in March.
Here’s a sketch I did this week of a pile of rocks. This stack of rocks is on the path that I follow in the summer time when I walk every morning. And the rocks are really different colors. I think the top two in the sketch look like they are a bit off balance as I got the angles slightly off but I did like the way the sketch turned out.
Happy New Year and all the best for a creative 2017!
Gail Harker’s course looks exciting – what a good way to start the new year – and I like your rock sketch very much.
Thanks Lyn! I am really excited to start the class. I’m sure you’ll hear all about it on the blog here 🙂
That course looks great, Ruth, I hope you enjoy it 🙂
I think rock balancing is meant to look ‘off balance’ and pretty impossible! Your sketch is really good.
Thanks Zed. Perhaps you’re right about the rock balancing but the photo that I drew from didn’t look so off balance 🙂
Great sketch Ruth! I like it a little off balance. When I watch people do this it always fascinates me since it is a matter of getting the right spots to balance. Enjoy your class next year.
Thanks Marilyn! Rock stacking is definitely a skill.
Belated happy new year – and look forward to hearing about your course.
Happy New Year to you as well Kim! I will certainly be writing about my class homework, I’m sure 🙂
