Horses were the first animals i fell in love with. I've been drawing them for a long time but I'm still not very good at it. I probably just need to take some art classes so i can figure out how to do things properly instead of just fudging through them. So this is a picture i drew originally on watercolour paper, but it turned out better than i expected so i scanned and copied it and finished it on normal paper. I'm still too scared to do the watercolour version because I really DON'T know what I'm doing with watercolours. So this is as far as this one is going to go for now.
So I was at the art gallery yesterday and saw these really awesome stylized flower drawings/paintings. I didn't really get much of a chance to look at them but I decided to try my hand at it.
I tried digitally painting them but i really didn't like the result so i think ill try them in watercolour or acrylic. These two are the second version just done in ink on printer paper, I still need to add in some shading.
The Typographic version
So, looks like i have to backtrack a bit. Approximately three days ago i went to a botanic park that was by my house to get some pictures. One of my huge hobbies is photography. I have a Canon Rebel SXI and it is my baby, I thought I would share some of my favorite pictures. (I took all of these so please do NOT steal)
So since I'm new here i might want to describe a couple of things. My name is Christina (aka Hodge) and I love art. Well mostly visual art. I'm not very good at the whole drama "experience". I basically want to try every art form i can possibly fit into my life. So far my main interests are: Photography, Scrapbooking, and Drawing. I've never taken an art class but i plan to this summer. So basically the purpose of this blog will be whatever art things i do or things i find funny. for example, if i went to take some pictures at a botanic park, i would post the best pictures here, or if i built a mini terrarium (which i actually did today) i would post pictures here as well.
