Hay Debbie, I hope you are planning on making it to the TGS Festival, I would love to meet you. I'll either be in the Southeast Patch Booth, Competition Area or taking one of Bonnie's classes. I love your small worny filigree and natural looks on/in your gourd art.
it was just drawing all the curves that normal tree bark looks like and wood burning it. It sure took a long time. With all the curves, color pencils weren't the best choice because they didn't show up as well as I would have liked.
Same here Debbie.... I can not draw for the life of me and am really thinking about taking a basic painting class for the shading etc. I am always amazed at the ability of someone who has natural artistic ability. My husband is that kind of person. He can draw anything.
Debbie... responding to your comment on my page... I hear you about not feeling like you have any artistic ability...I have never been artistic... but have a huge desire to work with gourds. They are just so cool... love the feel, the look, and even the smell of them. Your gourds are beautiful... and you ARE ARTISTIC.... you just don't think you are. It is very inspiring to see all the different things people do with this wonderful product of nature.
Hi Debbie, The neat thing about the Woodcock with babies is that the gourd sort of came this way. It had obviously grown through something like a fence opening. I just carved the area to form two babies, added some gourd heads, and did a little carving on the mama. It was one of those gourds that you just know is going to come out good when you start!
