Yesterday was all Art of the Altar all the time! I've loved getting ready for this class, even if I've created a rather assertive schedule! I made sure to go for a walk at the end of the day to get some fresh air and clear my head so I am ready for a new day and a new journey today!
I'm continuing on the journey of Sketchbook Summer, and recently there was a prompt to do Informal Subdivision, which was something I had never heard of before. I am very thankful that they did a video to explain it. It's drawing lines on the page before you start as a way to jump start a composition, in a slightly imperfect way. One of the big things this highlighted for me was that I never consider the entire page before I start something. I usually don't even fill the whole page! It was very challenging to do, but it was very engaging to have something completely new to try to work and add to the artistic toolkit. Oh, and the theme for this one was ... Aliens. A little more clear for the bottom drawing...at least I hope so.
What a totally crazy day. Got all sorts of errands done (including sending the dresses back to Old Navy darn it) and then out to get groceries and just have time to put a frozen lasagne in the oven for dinner. Tomorrow is going to be even more busy! But I did get a free Slurpee today at 7/11 because it's July 11th.
