New media

Still hard at work on my book. It is going much slower than I like, but the pages I have done I really like and am very happy with them.

I couldn't find a good cradle with any reference so I went out and bought some clay. I only needed a little but the smallest box was 10 pounds. So now I have about 9 3/4 lbs of clay left!

Above is my reference for my nature baby in his cradle. I didn't sculpt the face, and the clay needs to dry beor I can paint it. But now I have reference so I can push forward with more book drawings. Baby is in about a third of all images including the cover!

Wish me luck and creative flowing productive energy, the deadline looms!!! LOL

Excellent as Traci said!! Talk about being stretched!!! How wonderful. I hope that you had a wonderful time experimenting with this new media. I still can't seem to wrap my head around the whole clay thing. You have inspired me to try once again he he he!

Good luck!

I tried clay once, and actually managed to make a handmade bowl. :-)

Nice work with the clay!

love this--especially love the leaf from nature which goes so well with the story. Clay is such a fun medium--you've encouraged me to open mine up again & give it a try!
