it almost seems as if i gave up on my sketch-a-day 2011 project... but in reality i just neglected posting about it. so here are a few samples of the last 2 weeks of sketching. i also finished a pencil portrait of my nephew, i'll save that for another post.
the top one is a sketch of alphonse mucha's biclycle advertising. mucha is my favorite artist, i love the way he accurately captured life-like poses and the beautiful lines of a human body and at the same time over-emphasised the flow of hair and fabric.
i'm looking for a picture to paint on the dart board enclosure that my husband built, and i am thinking of that bicycle picture from mucha. my dear hubby wanted to have a dart board in the middle of the living room, and since that's not really the look i was going for i only agreed under one condition: i would be able to paint the doors of the enclosure. this way it would look like a piece of wall art while the dart board is not in use. i'll post a picture of it once it's all done.
sometimes i envy the women that get to do whatever they like when it comes to decorating. some men just don't care, but mine does. fortunately he has quite a good taste, but at times we have a hard time making decisions because we really want to make sure both of us are 100% happy with everything.
do you also at times have to compromise when it comes to style in your home?
or do you have "free rein"?
