Jessica and Baby Evelyn WIP
watercolor on paper
16 x 20
As a Mother's Day present I was commissioned to do a portrait of our friends wife and baby daughter. I begin my Summer Semester at Academy of Art very soon and I want to have this done before school starts. This is just the first step. I have sketched in the figures and began laying in the big color areas. The key to this piece will be layers. The more layers I have the deeper and more dynamic the colors will be.
1.lasting a very short time; short-lived; transitory: the ephemeral joys of childhood.
I have been trying to figure out what to do with my sculpture I created for Sculpture 1. They are all pretty large and the take up too much room in my too small studio. I have always liked the idea that art is ephemeral so I wanted to explore this idea with my sculptures. They will now be living in my garden. I am excited to see what happens to them over time, especially the clay as it is self-hardening clay and has not been fired. If anything super interesting happens I will post it here.
