Hello my artsy peeps! Here I am again with another exciting post, LOL!
Week Six was taught by the amazing Tamara Laport
We were to think and write down about all the things we are grateful for and how we would depict our family. Since this week was about quirky bird, I first thought about what the different personalities make up my amazing family, then I sketched them.
Here’s the sketch:
My daughter is a Yoga instructor and is always meditating, my son loves the drums and was in a rock band, now he works at a music store. My husband was hard to sketch, but I thought a toucan would be a good representation, and I’m the chick with the umbrella.
Here we are! I also added my grandsons whom I adore!
I created this project on a 11×14 watercolor paper and used watercolor pencils, crayons, markers, acrylic paints, molding paste, stencils and love!
As I mentioned before, my daughter is a Yoga instructor. I made her a Yoga outfit and the glitter all around her is her aura. She’s such a loving, giving, and caring person! She’s meditating and going “Ohmmmmmm” LOL
The Rock Star!
My son has been playing drums since he was grade school and later was part of a group. Now he’s in his 40’s and he’s feeling the results of again! His elbows hurt, he can’t hear very well, etc.
I tried to make him as flambouyant as possible, but not over the top. I gave him a KISS face. I added an ant so there would be five characters. He’s holding a tiny heart and a leaf.
Next up is my husband. Originally he was going to be a Toucan, but after adding his feathers, I don’t know what he is, ha ha. He does have a heart of gold! He is very giving, loving, and caring also!
My oldest grandson has been hiding behind people lately; I don’t know why, but he is the one in the family who also loves music and has the sweetest voice you’ve ever heard!
My youngest grandson is a jock! He loves playing baseball and wants to be able to play professionally one day. My husband has been encouraging him to do well in school and perhaps he can get a scholaship to go to College. He’s already been admitted to Humboldt College in California. We’re so proud!
Last, but not least, the chick representing me!
I put glasses on her because I like to read, and the umbrella is for when I go out in the ministry on a sunny day. I’m one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and do volunteer work teaching the Bible and helping people get to know it better. I added Zentangles to the umbrella, which I also draw to relax. I also added doodles all over the pages and a few quirky stamps.
And that’s the project for this week, friends!
Thanks for coming by and I hope you leave me a comment. I love comments!!
