Plans for October

I just thought I'd give a quick sketch of what I plan to do this month.

Master of the Month: Monet
The FineLine Artists are planning to spend two months on Monet, with a little break this month for other activities. I am going to have company for the second half of November, so I am going to spend my second month on Monet in October. So, I plan to continue reading on Monet and will post anything "juicy" that turns up. I plan to look at optical color mixing as well, but that is a significant challenge, so if all goes quiet on that front - you'll know it's not going well. :-)

Artwork: Portrait Commission
My next project is a portrait commission, to be done in pencil. So, I will be working on that this month.

Artwork: Gawler Ranges
One of my goals for the year was to try and get 12 pieces together to do a calendar of some sort for friends and family. As I have left it so late, it is looking unlikely. However, I am at least aiming to do a series from Susan Borgas' Gawler Ranges photos. We'll just see how many I get done.

I've just had a look at my mid-year goals review. (I guess that makes this a quarterly review - just to make sure that I'm happy how I'm spending my art time for the remainder of the year.) I'm glad to see that some things are progressing on that front. The only goals that aren't being touched are perspective and architecture. I have done some reading on perspective, but haven't taken the time to practice any of that. Architecture has really gone by the way-side, but I am happy with where things have gone otherwise.

So, we've got some more Monet, a portrait, and some landscapes coming up!

Thanks Belinda. This is my second commission for this person...the first was of the maternal grandmother, this is of the paternal grandmother.

Rose, that is great on the commission. Sounds like you have a good plan and are making headway.

We have been too busy for art. Just "thinking art" when I have a minute. Guess that will develop into a plan. :)

Hee Hee Jo, I'm glad it sounds as good as that. Life has been busy here too...and this ragweed here in TX this year...yikes, it has really laid me back. I'll post some progress on the commission today.
