OK. I worked on the fireplace this morning and after taking the photos, I am going to do a little more to it.
Here's the before photo. I finished laying the brick and using the ball stylus on all of the lines between.
In the next one, I have added a lot of pencil work with the Prismacolors. I used mostly black and different shades of brown. I also did a bit of gray washing on the marble. I usually put that on in streaks and then move it around with my fingertips.
There is a grain to marble, just like wood. The veins tend to run and branch in the same direction.
When I finished with veining with a Pigma .oo5 pen, I tried it in the radio. I think that I need to do a bit more veining. Right now it looks a bit to regular and striped. I may add just a touch of light green to make it blend into the surroundings. It is a bit too stark white right now.
It is interesting that I don't see what's wrong until I look at the photos.
I am in hot water this morning!
I left one of the fat quarters of fabric in the car....
Tessie has been on a rant about it since I found it and brought it into the house.
It looks like a new apron is due.
She has been dragging the fabric around the house and will not put it down. She announced to all that would listen, "A dreadful injustice was done! Casey tried to abscond with the best piece of fabric! She didn't want me to see it. She was trying to hide it, so that I couldn't have a new apron!!!".
On and on. I have been having to listen to this all morning. I guess that the only way to hush her up is to start building a new apron.....Like she needs another one? I am of the opinion that she doesn't really like the fabric at all. She just wants to distract me from the radio. Jealousy is rampant!
Anything to keep me busy and out of trouble.
See you tomorrow.
