While I was working on it, I wasn't sure about the dark background, but it kinda grew on me, and I think it makes the colours pop. So I'm happy :-)
I call it "Heal the world", because it just feels like that for me. I notice that lately I feel the need to make paintings where people live in harmony with nature and animals. I am so saddened by what we are doing to our beautiful planet and to the animals in it, and my paintings are sort of a tribute to all I love about nature. Bringing some kindness to the world in these sad and upsetting times. I reserve my raw feelings of anger and worry and resistance for my artjournal pages and my Facebookposts :-)
This is not an intuitive painting, so not so many steps to show here, but here are some pics from start to finish:
using up leftover paint and trying out some things with drips
stamps, sprays and lots of colour
lightening it up a bit, because I already know I want to put a dark colour in the background.
drawing my figures and starting to paint the negative space
mix of Payne's Grey and Phtalo Blue
And here it is finished:
I didn't post my faces for the 29 faces challenge on my blog every day. Not enough time for that, so here they are from last week:
Face #3: black ink on a map
Face #4: watercolour and marker
Face #5: found image in a map
Face #6: another watercolour and marker
Face#7: the first face from my painting
Face #8: another "found map-face"
And #9: the second face from my painting:
I managed to paint every day, but boy, I'm way behind with other things now! Guess by the time I finish this challenge I'll be up to my ears in administration and paperwork .... Oh well ...
Linking this to 29 faces challenge and to Paint Party Friday. Join in if you want, it's fun, and there's so much to see and admire in both of them!
Ending with some funnies :-)
And some to think about ....
That's it for this week! Thanks for being here, I really appreciate your visits and comments. I hope your day is going well, and that your weekend will be filled with kindness.
I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥
