So, as many of you know, Lily and I are working on a mosaic. We’ve been drawing and planning and excited about the whole process. We nearly finished up one scene last Friday. We added in a stag, a waterfall, a frog, and some trees. There is this fabulous website (DragoArt) with step by step instructions on how to draw just about anything. That’s where I learned how to draw a stag and a waterfall. I highly recommend it. It’s not just animals and scenery, it’s also people, mythical beasts, and so many other things. Anyway, I’m really stoked about our mosaic, and then a friend stopped by.
Nothing like having your bubble burst. LOL
She’s a good friend. I can forgive her, but I can’t say I’m not disappointed. She used to make mosaics every summer with her mother. Unless I have a huge wall (much bigger than mine), this kind of detail in the space I have isn’t going to happen. (sigh) So, we have to rethink our design. Lily doesn’t know yet, but she will.
As fate would have it, a Living Social deal arrived in my inbox this past week for a mosaic class. (grin) I bought two, one for me and one for Lily. We’ll be taking the class very soon. Armed with this, we should be able to make a really amazing mosaic. Perhaps we’ll focus on three large figures, one of them being a mermaid, and then add some fun, smaller things in between.
Anyway, if mosaics were how I envisioned them, this would’ve been the middle scene. Alas, they are not. (Damn you, mosaics!)
On the positive side, I learned how to draw a stag, a waterfall, and a frog. Oh, and I had fun. 🙂
Love it. Feeling inspired by the great appearance of what I see here.
What are you going to do, Stephen? You must post pictures. Will it be a drawing or a mosaic?
Well, it looks good in the planning stage, but your friend is right, the execution will be tricky! How fortunate that the class opportunity came at the right time! Should be fun!
For the size of the squares, Christi, I don’t think this will work. 🙁 It did work out quite well with the timing on the class. I can’t wait to take it.
