I was going to wait for my new scanner to arrive in the mail, but I just can’t wait to share with you what I’ve been working on this past week! So here are some photos:
On my most recent trip to Daniel Smith I acquired a pad of Stonehenge Kraft paper – luxurious, soft creamy acid-free sheets that I couldn’t wait to experiment on! So I’ve been experimenting with charcoal, sumi and acrylic. I’m especially excited by how smoothly acrylic paint goes on, and next will try out more than just one color (baby steps here!). ^_^
Then I had to see how the cut fabric flowers would look contrasted on the brown paper, as I’ve only ever laid them down on white. I have to say, I rather like it! The colors, and the kraft paper feel very homey to me, very soft, warm and comfy.
Here are some snapshots of four more drawings that have yet to have flowers added. I have mixed feelings about this – I rather like the simple drawings, without anything added. Overdoing drawings/paintings/artworks is one of my biggest fears, art-wise, which is why I love spontaneous drawing so much, and prefer it to planned-out paintings. What do you guys think? How do you know when a piece is finished?
Thanks for bearing with me through the many pictures. I hope this finds you well – what have you been up to?
