Once again, our quality sponsor this week is Craftsy which provides video tutorials and downloadable eGuides for aspiring artists. The resources they provide are aimed at people who want to quickly brush up on some basics. This week they’re offering a free downloadable eGuide on “Creating Realistic Waterscapes”.

The eGuide gives you an overview of things like the wet on wet technique, building up colour, using a masking fluid, and describing light and shadow. Not everyone is looking to paint raindrops obviously but there’s some good fundamentals here. If you’re interested: Download the eGuide for free.

Drawing On The Past: Mallory Lucille Rose

mallory-lucille1

Here’s another great submission to our “Drawing On The Past” project with Herschel Supply. Thank you to Mallory Lucille Rose!

She writes: “There’s a large age gap between my sisters and I; this print is the bedding from their childhood, and then of course, mine. I’ve always seen my sisters in a golden light – wanting to be more grown up and cool like them. When I moved to San Francisco (grew up), I borrowed this bedding from our parents. I’ve always been a “nostalgic hoarder” for my family and this print reminds me of home, being a child, and wanting to grow up too fast. It more specifically reminds me that I am still a child and the desire to be ‘cool’ like my sisters is the reality I’m living! Life’s funny that way.”
