The specially shaped palate knife is used to form mountains and the fan brush is used for evergreens. I would have gotten more brushes, but each brush is $10 and up. So I'll have to save up for the complete set gradually. At the Urbana Library I picked up a Bob Ross dvd I've had on hold for a while. My local library doesn't have any Bob Ross dvds, so I searched for them elsewhere.
I've been wanting to do a mermaid drawing lately, so I did that today:
And later we all went to the Carroll County Fair.
My favorite part is a tie between getting a whole pickle for a dollar or looking through the artwork.
There were some amazing pieces this year, completed by surprising ages!
Here's some of my favorites:
This was an oil painting age-15.
Colored pencil drawing- I didn't catch the artist's age.
Pencil drawing- age 15
Watercolor painting age- 13
Acrylic painting- age 10
Charcoal drawing age- 18
Oil painting- age 11
Oil painting age-11
Such unbelievable talent in these young art students!
We've gone to this fair for three years in a row now, mainly just to watch the Demolition Derby!
Which is always so funny to watch.
I love fairs.
The Howard County Fair is next week, but after that the Frederick County Fair and the Damascus Fair are in September.
It's such a great place to get inspired!
