Some sketches were cool and others I have no idea what was going on…
It’s almost Friday and why does that bother me. Maybe because aside from the kids I love, I really want to work on art more and have this be my full time gig. Oh to be among those who say yes I do what I love and earn a good living at it. It’s a journey and I’m on my way.
I’m looking for a cool background or pattern for my poems and quotes.
I’ve been playing with acrylic paint and watercolor of course.
You’ve seen the one withcrayola here. Note to self, paint more of these. There’s something about mixing color that excites me. You add color and drop it on the page like this and spread it. There’s no structure. The paint just takes on a life of it’s own. I love that.
I love dropping drops of paint and then using a flat brush to spread the paint in a horizontal motion. Use my finger prints to create a pattern? Yes I will try that next time!
Instead I got this quote in my head and why not play around with it.
Oh dear I need more space! Oh but I do love this idea! I love the color. I used the dot method to grab a couple of colors and then paint….looks awesome but I want to go back to the drawing board with this one.
Here it is! Yes I am also testing different paper and this is a store paper bag. The purple paint is done in acrylic and the dots were done with watercolor paint.
I’m still going to try the fingerprint pattern.
Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible!
