Most of my day was spent on researching images in the early 1900's. I was on the internet looking for photos of the old Train Depot in Erin and found nothing. The Depot was torn down years ago and I know I've seen photos of it either at the City Hall or Court House. So Monday I'll try the Houston County Library first, then the other buildings. I'll be sure to take a sketchbook and pencil along with my phone to take a photo or two. I did draw some before I got to where I needed the Train Depot reference. While searching for photos, I did run across a lot of history of the L&N Railroad. I enjoyed reading all that good stuff and I might have linger a little too long on an article or two. I'll try to manage my time better in the achieves on Monday.Have a good week-end everyone.
It wasn't all work today, we had fun at the studio.
Today my granddaughter modeled for me. In front of the camera she
was wonderful. But getting her to sit still so I could draw her was another
story. She wouldn't be still. I'm glad she came so I could get some photos and
it's always good to work on my drawing skills. When I looked at the photos
tonight, she looks so much like me at that age. I knew she favored me, but I did
not know just how much. It was a GREAT Day in the Studio.
Between shots and still smiling.
My Granddaughter was so sweet to help me out. She posed in different outfits, in different areas of the studio and yet she kept smiling. And, it was a little warm working up there in the studio. I did get some really good shots and I can't wait to get started working on the new series.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
