Tone washes for color study for Page 006 of Spirits & Seekers: Cagliostro in Courland. I haven't done anything with the glasses of (dark-colored, like Riga Black Balsam-style) cordial, as I was unsure how to handle the reflection and refraction of the glass in this mostly fireplace-lit scenery; I'll have to quiz my watercolor coach. #mastoart #watercolor #cagliostro
@AesAthena I say regular.
Tone washes for color study of Page 005 of Spirits & Seekers: Cagliostro in Courland. What does Cagliostro see that gives him pause? #mastoart
Getting back to work (again) on the color studies for _Spirits & Seekers: Cagliostro in Courland_. These are updated tone washes for the study for Page 004 -- with lettering. #mastoart
Further progress on Mona Lisa. Don't be afraid to go dark in your early washes! Hahaha. #mastoart
@kew In the olden days, we had APAs (Amateur Press Associations, pronounced APPuhs).
@ItsEdSanti Great idea -- I'd never have thought of it!
How Mona Lisa stands as of the end of the MIT Craft Fair this past Friday afternoon. Will continue working on her during this week's craft fairs. #mastoart
Working on Mona Lisa while at the MIT Craft Fair. Back tomorrow, 9–5.
@tim I thought that was Artemus Ward.
Finally, Mr. Pitkin is manager of the Hellish Benares Theatre. Needless to say, he takes a dim view of Balcony Fred's menacing behavior. #mastoart
Balcony Fred is a perv who peeps up the stairs to the balcony as ladies in swishy skirts go up. Biff is concerned that he's cast a baleful influence on him. The crouching posture is his position as he peeps up the balcony stairs. #mastoart
Second new "In Hellish Benares" character: Biff, the usher at Hellish Benares Theatre. Middy (when still alive) thinks he's a trifle odd, as he's very young, but wears a more old-fashioned uniform than she does. Toward the end of the story, he crawls along on all fours. #mastoart
Four new character designs for a new "Ling Master" story, "In Hellish Benares". First is Middy, who first appears as a ghost (or "haint", as the Ling Master refers to her). When she was alive, she worked at the Hellish Benares Theatre. I've modified Blaster Al's original story so that it comes full circle rather than just floating off into nowhere like the original. I definitely need practice drawing her hair. #mastoart
My partner and I were at the SMFA Art Sale reception last night -- but since the sale started at 11 AM, we didn't see my framed piece (Cardinals Communing) on the wall, as someone had bought it a half-hour before we arrived! The sale, which benefits SMFA students and programs, continues through this Sunday (today and Sat. 11-7, Sunday 11-5) and I still have some of my shrinkwrapped pieces in the racks for browsing. https://smfa.tufts.edu/events-exhibits/art-sale

@adamk678 Figuring it out on your own is how you develop your own style! Influences are OK, but bringing together several influences -- and seeing how they solve specific problems, is the real goal. Seeing how it feels, how close you get to looking great. Pushing yourself is part of it.
@Corvusrobotica I like the waves in particular, good peaks and gradient washes.
