emilylagore Taking a break from the watercolour painting to do a bit of art journaling. I tend to be a "obsessive creator" - I usually binge on creating one type of art and lately it's been drawing but I flipped through a journal I hadn't seen in months and found this awesome background I had completely forgotten about. Excited to starting drawing and filling up this spread 🏻 PS. How cute is Sprinx all curled up napping?! #wip #art #artjournal #paint #painting #rainbow #artdog #sprinxandbeans 1d
  •   emilylagore @thedrawingclassic thank you! 1d
  •   emilylagore @tesswyatt thanks Tess 1d
  •   emilylagore @the.tangled.knitter Bekah - the age old problem of too many arts/crafts too little time 1d
  •   emilylagore @parabolicmuse Chris I have a problem of losing interest before I finish - my stack of unfinished drawings/art journals/paintings/various crafts is incredible - but I try to not berate myself because I tend to be a little hard on myself and that is not healthy. 1d
  •   emilylagore @parabolicmuse Chris Prinx is doing very well - his incision has healed so well - literally no scar!! I wish I healed that well. He is taking his supplement like a champ and also lets the vet take his blood without squealing or flinching. It's such a relief to see him not in pain and feeling more himself. The only sad part is that his voice hasn't come back yet - he used to groan and "talk" to us and he has not done that since his thyroid surgery. I had a partial thyroidectomy several years ago and it took about a month before my voice sounded like me again - I have hope that he will heal and start talking to us again. Thank you very much for asking - you are super sweet 1d
  •   emilylagore @sandieloves2art thank you for asking! They are doing well - but are still pretty nervous. They always want Elle and I to be in the same spot and they are super scared of the stairs!! They will go down on their own but cower when we ask them to go up them. The stairs are steel and they are open so it's gotten them freaked out. But they love the beach and beanie is very adventurous and loves to go in the bushes exploring 1d
  •   parabolicmuse Emily! This is such good news. Thanks for telling me how things are going. I bet his voice comes back. I'm so glad he has a good shepherd like you! 1d
  •   parabolicmuse And as for the unfinished work, I made my peace with those a year or so ago. I will always work on several things at once and I have suspected its my tendency to tire of the same project after awhile but I've always read more than one book at a time so maybe that's just the way I operate the best. I suspect we both have curious and energetic brains and work best when feeling passionate 1d

emilylagore It's subtle - but I've started the colour glazing - Winsor Newton Ultra Pink is the first glaze #wip #watercolor #watercolour #art #arches #painting #paint #mgraham 1d

emilylagore Purple underpainting complete! Whew. A bit gruelling but necessary to how I model form and shadow. At this point I am not sure what my next step is. It was a grey day in Rome when I took this pic and I am very tempted to leave the background as is and just add local colour to the sculpture. I need to think it through. #wip #watercolor #watercolour #art #arches #mgraham #paint #painting 2d

emilylagore Getting down to the last few details of the purple underpainting - I've not had the mental focus the past few days but hopefully I can get into the zone this evening #wip #watercolor #watercolour #art #arches #mgraham #painting #artdog #sprinxandbeans 3d

emilylagore This is a really strong background - this is #nofilter . I will need to break out my brush #copicmultiliner to fill in large areas so the design becomes the focus not the background. #wip #art #draw #doodle #freehand #fabriano #tombow 6d

emilylagore Where I am leaving the hand right now - I will probably strengthen the shadows on the fingers when I look at it again in natural light tomorrow. It's been too long since I painted and I am hoping this will become a daily practice. #wip #art #arches #watercolor #watercolour #paint #painting #mgraham 1w

emilylagore Close up of the finished purple underpainting of the wing - of course I am leaving the hand and fingers for last cause I am chicken to paint them. Why are fingers and hands so scary?!! #wip #watercolor #watercolour #art #arches #mgraham #paint #painting 1w
  •   emilylagore @sincerely_yours_gifted my first watercolour instructor told me to always do the toughest part of a painting first - since there is almost no way to correct mistakes in watercolour if you do mess up then you haven't ruined all the hard work of the rest of the painting. Heh. Apparently I didn't take that advice this time 1w
  •   emilylagore @beckybowencraig that could very well be true. I find that in watercolour trying to model a hand and fingers the paint ends up making a hand look "dirt smudged" when in actual fact you need to show all the shadows etc or it doesn't look right. And also - fingers are small - very little room for error @paintingbliss I know I can do it if I take my time and concentrate - it's just a matter of focus. Thanks for the encouragement 1w
  •   emilylagore @downwendy thank you Wendy! 1w
  •   emilylagore @tesswyatt thanks Tess! 1w
  •   wendlesis1 So beautiful 1w
  •   avidreadertwo I know you will do a beautiful job to compliment the gorgeous wing!!! 1w
  •   ceebeemomma Ohhhh I'm loving this so far! Can't wait to see it finished!! 1w
  •   edgarcabrera I'm speechless 😦 1w
