Artober - Week 3

Wow, can it really be Wednesday again already?  Here's what I've been doing for the "30 Days of Get Your Art On" challenge suggested by Traci Bunkers.

Thurs Oct 11 - painted and collaged a journal page:

Fri Oct 12 - made a tag bookmark for the 4th volume of the "Game of Thrones" series written by George R.R. Martin, entitled "A Feast for Crows". 

Sat Oct 13 - carved a crow stamp - read more details here.

Sun Oct 14 - I made a page divider out of a file folder which I collaged and painted.  I'm working on a binder full of notes for online classes - in this case, Mary Ann Moss' Stencilry, and here's what the divider looks like so far, don't think I'm done with it just yet.

Mon Oct 15 - week 4 of my drawing class.  Just me and the teacher as the other 2 students couldn't make it.  No pressure!  Among other things, we worked on drawing still lifes.  I think my rendering of the dinosaur in the snow globe turned out especially well.
Still life objects

Tues Oct 16 - Since I've been avoiding my drawing class homework each week since we started, I thought I would force myself to face my resistance head on this week and not only do my homework for next week's class (drawing a still life, haven't done it yet but I will!) but also get my art on every day this week by drawing for a minimum of 15 minutes.  I drew this picture of Katrina sleeping on the chair beside me, focusing on the negative space, being the spaces in between the design on the back of the chair.

Wed Oct 17 - more negative space practice (I'm not sure I'm "doing it right", so I'm forcing myself to do it more than once).

When I laid the key on top of the drawing, I was pretty close in my proportions!

I also drew my stapler, although I did it with a Micron pen and ended up having to erase a few lines with correction tape! :)

What have you been doing to get your art on this week?
