This is Day 7 of the continuing saga of the creation of the “Space Oddities” project for the 2010 da Vinci Days Avenue of Imagination Community Art Project.
When you look at the larger view of this image, you’ll better see The Primer Coat that I started on the top of the body. Thankfully I had some left over lightly tinted primer paint in the garage that I could use for this project.
Now the entire project is All Primed. Applying the primer paint to the paper towel layer, gives the skin of the project the feel of a paint canvas, which will make it easier to apply paint.
Another View of the primed body, awaiting the paint.
The Backside View of the primed body.
Here I started Drawing the Outline using a purple watercolor pencil (you may need to look at the larger view to see it). Normally I use a grey w/c pencil however it’s decided to be some place other than where I needed it to be. I like to draw with a w/c pencil because as the paint hits the pencil lines they become absorbed and erased from the canvas.
The Drawing on the Right wing is the yin yang symbol (you may need to look at the larger view to see it).
The Drawing on the Left Wing is the peace symbol (you may need to look at the larger view to see it).
Here’s the Left Side View (you may need to look at the larger view to see it).
Here’s the Top View (you may need to look at the larger view to see it).
I put the Final Layer on the Base using squares of paper towel.
That’s it for Day 7.
