I’m calling this a work in progress still because I’m not sure it’s done.
It’s changed quite a bit from last night. The flowers have much more colour to them (kinda loving them, no lie) and more depth. I took a very quick video of how I made one of them:
The bottom was made with a palette knife and layers of colours scraped over the canvas. I tried to keep it a very simple colour scheme. A couple shade of red, brown, black, two greens, yellow and white gesso. By blending them to various degrees it made the whole thing pretty interesting.
So I like how it is currently but I’m not sure it’s complete. I’m going to leave it on my desk for a while to see if I’m inspired to add more or change anything.
Honestly, that doesn’t even begin to describe if. Maybe, oil slick, or nebula, or rain forest. Not sure yet which is why it’s beings defaulted to the green canvas.
Whatever I end up calling it doesn’t matter. What really matters is how frickin’ cool this turned out. Seriously. I am so proud of this one. I love the colours. I love the texture of the molding paste used. I love the way the colour seeped into the crevices and pooled and created such depth.
There are a bunch more pictures up on the 366 Days of Art post. Definitely check it out tonight.
Tonight I did a couple little drawings of very different girls. The first was more sketchy and without outlining.
However you do it. Sing. Dance. Write. Draw. Paint. Create. Make fucking spreadsheets. I don’t care. Just make your mark. And make it count.
Finished the page from last night today. Well, maybe I might go in and add some black ink doodling.
Tonight’s art is another simple black and white line drawing.
Today is my day at the Made Local Society.
And we’ve had a lot of fun and got a lot of work done. I’ve also done my arting here today. Here is the link.
Tonight I’m sitting in our absolutely lovely Made Local Society with limited art supplies so I decided to improvise.
I had a small case of pencils and pens with me that I totally made use of. I used a 2H pencil (my new favourite to be honest) and a Faber-Castell Pitt pen for the outline. Then I got creative with the supplies I had on hand. I had some mini Stampin’ Up ink pads and a set of K&Company Amy Butler clear stamps. I used a lovely green and 4 small floral stamps to create her dress. I used chocolate brown for her hair and yellow for her crown. Her dress was filled in wit hints of pink and blue.
Some days it’s better to just hide from the world. Bundle up, hunker down, build a blanket fort, and put everyone on ignore. Today’s art reflects that.
I like the starkness of tonight’s art.
