is a gypsy phrase that I painted a while ago.Why not simply paint and let the idea emerge as I paint? As I create this year I want to simply do what I want to do and have fun. Freddie Mercury was a wise man. Chachipe’ is a gypsy term I learned while watching a Spanish novella. It means reality and truth.
The Gypsies would greet and say good-bye using this phrase. I like the phrase but the above interpretation doesn’t do this cool phrase justice.
Do some research on gypsy patterns and color. Then paint. Same rules.
let’s really get to work here and fix this.
Alright maybe rethink the color scheme here. BUT working with patterns and layering color is great for learning color the Josef Albers way. I’m ready to move on to the next project. Yes I need to start working on the live your story book.
is incredible. Oh my gosh I now have the perfect color for painting Peter Pan’s flight night sky.
Pink and blue flowers? I think so.
Premium is so much more pigmented. I could have just painted blobs and it’d still be beautiful.
the key to working with gouache is just enough water to make it easy to glide on the page.
I should’t go over it either. I needed to let it dry before I add layers.
oh doing swatches would be good
Audrey Hepburn was a true Hollywood queen. For when the world said, ‘ You can’t act. You’re not pretty enough. She was. I think of her strolling along with her big black hat and sunglasses. Strolling along with such a smile that…oh wait what are they uttering?
Gives me lots to think about as I begin a new year of exploration. I will experiment with texture, objects and color. I do have two books to write. I’m just getting started.
So here I am reading a book, Creative Inc. and researching Banksy. The artist pops up here and there with something to say. His ideas are original. Banksy ideas are thought provoking. He’s an artist.
…which makes me ponder the meaning of my art. What do I hope to achieve? I hope to speak to those who are tired of reading the same old self-help books. You are not broken. You are beautiful so create like it. I want to let the kid play. I want to let the world know there’s room in the sandbox for all of us….
