Since it's getting cold, I am also getting ready to move my teaching operation back into the house - which means I need to clean and organize the boxes I use with the kids. The last time I did it, my BFFitWWW (that's Best Friend in the Whole Wide World) Patsy Hamel helped me. We took the entire New Year's weekend of 2012.
I must say, the kids have done a pretty good job over the past nearly 3+ years keeping the colors and values where they need to be, but not quite. And they are so dirty.
So I took a screen and shop vac to the boxes. They're still really dirty but not so much so.
But in the meantime, I knew I had to make a painting. So, on Pastelmat light gray I started one.
Oh, but wait. Before that I made a coloring page for the Teaching Nelson Telson curriculum. This counts as #5 of 31!
Here's the underpainting of the next work:
|Pastelmat is so different than the supports I usually use. It sucks the stuff in...|
I vacuumed them out. Here's how far I got with the boxes:
Tomorrow, it's the organizing. Sounds easy unless you have 100% color acuity.
By the end of the day, this will be tomorrow's painting.
