Weekly Summary - Jan. 1 2021

art struggles news weekly summary

Wow my first blog post of 2021, and it's on the very first day of the year. Last week here.

The bad news from the past week is: I made barely any progress on my MIL's commission. I started doubting my previous color choice & started a new background, but got no further than that. 

I did very little art-ing overall, although I did more yesterday with some of my new supplies from Christmas. I received a 100% cotton mixed media sketchbook I had on my wish list, which turned out to be better quality than I had realized. Overall, my experiments weren't successes, and there will be more of a learning curve with the new supplies than I anticipated from the videos that make it look so easy. 

My new challenge today: working with a roll of watercolor paper. It's a fight! The paper is rolled up so tightly that it wants to curl back up on itself from both ends. The plan is to work larger from it though--and my smallest piece so far is 18x18 in, and I have it rolled out & waiting to to cut 18x24 next.
