I finished putting gesso on a few canvases then I took one while it was still wet and practiced painting with acrylics and the blade set I got. My technique still needs some work to match up with how long I have to work with the paint before it starts to dry and become unmanageable, but it worked for just practice.

Even though I didn’t participate in the bonfire, I was close enough to get some good pictures as reference for a painting I want to try using watercolors. I thought about taking one of my folding screen-style sketchbooks and doing a whole panorama, but the paper’s not right for watercolors. I could always try colored pencils and see what happens.

Unrelated, but I wish these ball machines had a faster setting.

Private: Honestly, it was too cold to be out there for very long and I didn’t want to sit next to the fire all night just because I was getting that annoying pins and needles sensation in my lower legs. Also, I would have looked ridiculous wearing winter clothes to a beach bonfire.

Bonfire by moonlight. I'm sure it will come out gorgeous.

You could try the pitching machines that the baseball circle uses.

Post the finished product, if you feel so inclined.

I live to be helpful.

Hey Yukimura, because I'm once again feeling masochistic and terrible, let's go hang out and play tennis or something.

I had this amazing dream about a new tennis move. Go easy on me while I see if I can pull it off. It'll blow your pants off.

Painting the beach? That sounds lovely. I'd love to see the finished work.

Are the tennis ball machines really that slow?

Best of luck! I don't have much talent in art myself but I enjoy seeing everyone's work.

Haha, I suppose Toyama weren't able to prepare for you.~

I've never tried experimenting with colored pencils in a 'proper' art project before. Is it difficult?

Ah, yes I'd imagine that'd make all the difference. ^.^ Fascinating~!
