I finally worked a bit more on the painting I started somewhere in the summer holidays. I really need to get back into the habit of creating, and this week was a good week for that. I have been drawing a lot in my sketchbooks, trying out new kinds of faces. And I made a new journalpage,
Here's the painting I've been working on. It's a brightly coloured background that I've had for some time now, and it's the first time I'm doing a negative space painting with a darker colour. It's actually a mix of phtalo blue with Payne's grey. Both are transparant so you can still see the background peeking through, which is kind of neat.
This is my journalpage:
I remembered to do some progress-pics, which I want to do more with my artjournal pages from now on. Sometimes I find it hard to remember how I did something and these pictures might help me when I want to replicate something.
This is how it started:
A page in an old book that I use for my leftover paints...
Added a little bit of collage ....
and a very big face :-)
I hope I can keep up the practice of doing something every day, even if it's only a 2-minute oneline-drawing. It makes me feel good, plus I need it in order to get better at it. When there are big lapses in between creating I find it very hard to get back into it, it's as if I have to learn to paint all over again.
I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday. Click on the link and join in the party if you want! It's fun :-)
Ending this post with some funnies:
And one to think about ....
