My vote is for pirates! Glad you had a good time!
Hehe, I went with a dragon, but I promise there will pirates soon!
Living in Fla rocks! Being able to take small cruises on a whim, exspensive, but those last min deals are awesom!
Huzzah for you!
I'm here in California, so I can take off to Mexico, but there aren't any pirate ships there! Ah Well! Beats Wyoming!
It's true!!! It's such an easy trip for us to make, it takes less than an hour for us to get to the boat - no airfare, travel time, etc.
That's cool - I've never been to Mexico - been really close to it, but never gone in. We might do another Disney Cruise that goes through the Western Caribbean, it hits Cozumel and Costa Maya - I'd really like to see some Mayan ruins, pyramids, etc.
They are so neat - like giant resorts on the water!
I haven't painted a Degu yet - I should though, they are really cute!
I hope you don't mind me asking you this Jasmine:
I was looking at your work through your webcam and saw it in sketch stage. I was wondering what you used to sketch your drawing on the painted canvas? I tried sketching with a white watercolor pencil, but it's so light! I can barely see a thing (unless I don't use the right brand).
I was wondering if you could give me a tip or two about that? Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! =)
Hi Annie! Actually, it is a white watercolour pencil! I have a bunch of watercolour pencils (most brands are about the same, most of mine are Derwent I think) - I choose a colour based on what the background looks like so far. This was a solid black background, so when I was deciding what to paint I just sketched on top with a white watercolour pencil. When it's a light background I'll choose a darker pencil. I just barely press on the pencil - I do a lot of scribbling, lol. Watercolour pencils are great for sketching on acrylics & canvas since they wipe away with water and won't leave residue like a regular pencil will. Or sometimes I'll just start painting without a sketch if I have an idea in my head already =)
Thank you so much for answering my question!! I might not be using a good brand of watercolor pencil afterall! I will have to check it out!
Thank you so much again! =)
Your schedule makes me dizzy! ;)
