Sneak Peek Friday
So many of my friends go all out with decorating their homes at Christmas and wouldn't it be fun to have a grouping of these little men on the wall? There's the idea, but I've been stuck on do I do a background or not and if I do, what kind of background.
So, I decided to just start painting them. I can always print some to fool around with a background later on. I've tried different ideas...musical notes, lyrics from the Nutcracker ballet, but so far I haven't liked anything yet.
Also on my desk is my new Kodak picture frame. Instead of printing the picture to paint from, I can put it on the screen and paint a more 3-d version of the subject. Although with this new printer I just got, the printed picture of the nutcracker was much better than the picture frame. So, maybe good for some pictures and not for others. I'm still experimenting.
If you want to join us in the fun, just click on "In the Studio" and give it a try.
