okay, SO. an update.
on tuesday, i went into the city to attend an information day for the royal adelaide show’s art and craft competition. i’ve been wanting to start entering art comps, and this will be just a little one so it’ll be good to just see how i go, at that point i had no idea what i was going to do, i just knew that i wanted to do a few different pieces, so i could see how i measured up against the rest of the people entering.
as i was leaving, i got followed downstairs by one of the official ladies, who told me that she’d been asked by a local newspaper to find some ‘young people’ entering in the shows competitions, as they wanted to write an article on them, so that was cool. *exposure*
and, in a very uneventful shower (after a full day of a new job) i decided on what i’d like to do as my ‘pen’ piece. they told us to make something that had a story, or incorporated our passions, so i’ve decided to do a piece of my cousins and i sitting at my grandfather’s piano, in like a ‘teaching/learning’ pose kind of thing. i’m hoping to get some good textures in my references photos, so that i can incorporate those into the piece, and i might try and work some farming equipment or trucks/bike figurines in as well, just to help with the storytelling.
ALSO my benedict gift picture is so close to finished now. i only have the boots and the hands left to go, before i work out what i want to do for the background. SO YES. that’s a thing.
ANYWAY. goodbye friends.
