I've occasionally alluded to upcoming projects ready and waiting in the wings upon course completion. Here's where we're going next!
There is paint making coming up soon. A kit from Natural Pigments arrived last week. It's been sitting on a kitchen chair since then, waiting quietly for attention. I have six pigments with everything needed to make up tubes of paint. My friend and fellow student, Margaret, will be sending up earths from the Carolina Appalachian region. Here are a couple of photos she sent along detailing the rough and her grinding process.
Here's a example of the color range possible with her earths.
And here's the kit that recently came in.
Running concurrently with paint making will be working through the assignments in Wendy Hollender's Botanical Drawing. This book and the needed colored pencils have also been ready to go for a couple of weeks!
So, as I have been having a wonderful and somewhat challenging time working through the Cornell course, I have also been quite excited to get under way with these new subjects. And who knows, there may even be some around the lake photos mixed in! :-)
