An apology to everyone who was confused after reading yesterday's entry with its proliferation of abbreviations. A UFO, in quilting parlance, is an UnFinished Object. My UU (really don't like that very much and will have to come up with something better - maybe Double U) is a UFO Undertaking. Enough about that for the time being (wish I knew how to create a simple Glossary for this blog).
During today's painting class, I did some drawings for the Mews project. The tricycle was the first one I attempted from memory. It will have to be checked, I think. The second was the large standing planter (masquerading as a garbage bin right now), and the third was the window box.
Then I cut them out and . . . . .
placed them on one of the studies-for-color I've done. Once home, I re-sized them to fit and put a bit of tape on on the backs of the flower containers so they'd stay put at least until I decided where they belonged. The trike was moved around a bit until I made a slit between the pink and the dark gold buildings and slipped it in there. It's where Sharon suggested it might do best, and I agree.
The final step was to attach all additions (including another slightly larger window box on the pink building after fixing its perspective a bit), on the "real" drawing that has all the building details, and make a copy of the whole thing.
Lots of steps involved as I made up my mind about the final composition. While it may seem like a lot of unnecessary steps, being able to re-size and duplicate drawings and to move things around without damaging either the items moved or the base drawings, was really a time saver.
Now I have the master for transfer on to the watercolor paper!
