Sunny Day


I’m excited for Daft Punk’s upcoming album, but I’ve vowed to avoid posting stuff until its official released. Too much mashed up stuff from commercials. I can’t wait for the real thing, I hope it lives up to my expectations because I’ve been waiting 8 years for this. That’s typically a recipe for disaster with such anticipation for a given album, but to be honest, I don’t even know what to expect. It’s really a blank slate at the moment, but my hope is this will squelch that awful mess they call dubstep.

Moving along! This is going to be a short one today, some tracks I am excited about and finally have a chance to post. First off, CHVRCHES. They don’t even have a full length album out and they’re getting quite the hype. I have to say I actually like this track The Mother We Share a lot more than their most recent single Recover. Hopefully they have more that sounds like this track? Second in line is Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. If You Didn’t See Me. The intro of the track actually reminds me of The Unicorns which really brings me back, but it quickly segues into something more upbeat. I remember listening to too much of The Unicorns left me a bit down, upbeat equals greatness. And lastly the Generationals, it’s a bit slower but I’m loving it anyways. The weird sounds? Gets to me every time. This also reminds me of The Unicorns…

    Hi Irene!When you seal your wood canvas with Gesso you have to allow it to dry colmletepy. I usually do multiple ones that way they are ready to go when I’m ready to paint on them.I usually do at least 2 layers of Gesso on all sides including the back (3 layers is ideal) for longevity.Once the Gesso is dry, then you can sketch on on it.I sketch on Vellum or Tracing paper first so all the erasing and corrections are done on that and not on the wood. Once I’m happy with the drawing then I transfer it using another piece of Velum that I have rubbed colmletepy with a 4B pencil, you can purchase transfer paper, but I just make it my self.By transferring the drawing, you keep the Gesso clean and then begin to paint.If you do not want to deal with transferring, you can always add a layer of clear coat to the pencil sketch that is on the wood, let it dry and then start painting. The lead will be sealed and will not mix with your colors.I hope that helps.You’ve given me a nice idea for a blog post and I’ll be explaining it using pictures.Take careMaggie
