I left this painting at this stage to show my classes how important value is.
We joked that only "Flat Stanley" could sit on the chair on the left - but the chair on the right now has depth - we could sit down on that chair!
So many struggle with value. This picture shows a dramatic "before" and "after" on how to use value easily and effectively.

I put a thin line of miskit around the edges of the eggs. I like Pebeo Drawing Gum, which is the gray line you see in the photo. Then I put down a piece of blue painter's tape along the edge of the carton and began painting
C O L O R. And, for me, the added fun of the preciseness of the letters!
It was also fun to mix colors to get as exact a representation of the actual colors on the carton as possible.

When I got home I placed the carton and some eggs on a dishtowel and took numerous photos and chose this one.
|After more drawing, from the photo, the painting is finally ready to begin.|

As I've mentioned before, I am all about the crochet right now. So I looked through patterns that come to me via email, and I found one for little sandals.
These were just too cute not to make!! I did make a couple of slight modifications. I made the tie straps longer for ease of tying a little bow. Then, the pattern called for wrapping the toe area several times, but I just used a piece of yarn, wrapped it a couple times and tied a bow.
I've got so many skeins of yarn now, in various stages of use, so I want to use up as much as I can. Since the pattern called for a double sole - yikes, the child will not be walking for months, but these soles are rugged!!! - I used yellow on the bottom and pink on top. That way I could easily use the multi-colored yarn for the rest of the shoe and it would all coordinate. May as well teach her about coordinating outfits early on!
Here they are - and they almost fit her little tiny feet! In another month or so they should be right on - just in time for the summer fashion season!
The pattern for these sandals can be found at www.whistleandivy.com.

The greens of the grasses and leaves started. The chair shadows have also been darkened.

Next I began to show the bricks with quick swipes of color.
