Cross/basket hatching-a new texture!
Just a little ditty today. When I was in my most productive position in church today-sitting on the bench with sketch book in hand so I won't go to sleep)-started doodling on top of a doodle. Because of that "artist's mode" that I sink into sometimes I just started a new texture for me. Hey! I liked it! I know it's a cliche flower but the hatching is what I really like about this sketch. I also threw in a few little dots and then church ended. Unfortunately my faithful pen kept blobbing but that's okay. I consider this a knew fun technique for me. So I hope you will see this for what it is and not focus on the cliche.
No Art History Moment today - I have to get myself into the other room and whip out those books. Remember? It's my 2nd midterm tomorrow.
Just an aside from everything else-I have to tell you that I'm a grateful lady to be born in a land where women are free. Right now we are studying about the injustices that happen to women in the world. I CANNOT believe it! This has definitely been a slamming open eye experience-my class on human heritage. Wow. We've got a long road to travel before we can help all these women out. How do you change cultures? You can't. What did I say earlier? I'm a grateful lady.....
