Youtube tutorials and experimentation help
Today’s prompt is “snow globe” for the Index Card A Day art challenge. Day 4.
If art is the bridge between what you see in your mind and what the world sees, then skill is how you build that bridge.”—Twyla Tharp

I saw this scene but had no idea how to create the glass globe or an ambience in the room from the fireplace glow. I *still* don’t know how exactly, but I’m closer than I was before I experimented.
This prompt had me digging out my pencil box. I spent time getting reacquainted by making a sample card with the assortment on hand.
I tried different whites for the snow and I like Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White for the task.
As far as the reason for an oversized girl stuck within a snow globe filled with little pink houses, your guess is as good as mine. This was another image I “saw” in my mind’s eye, so I did my best to translate that onto an index card.
Next time I’m called to create a glass globe or make some snow fly, my muscles will remember what worked and what didn’t.
And maybe the next one will look a little more how I’d like it to look. xox
