|another take on the seagull|
When I get a chance I have been mostly playing in my studio. I am not looking to sell anything right now because that changes my whole attitude about creating. This guy is painted on watercolor paper. I made so many changes to the background that I feel like the paper is about 1/2" thick now with layers of paint. I am far from really loose in my work - but I loosened up a bit with this guy. He is acrylic paint, some collage and white charcoal (aka chalk). I am going to mount him on a piece of wood and hang him up at home for now. He only needs some type of finish.
No pictures right now - but I have played with some of the figure drawings and paintings I did in class. I smiled all the way through Bob's class in Raleigh. It was so much fun and I learned a lot about using color and contrast - not through any lecturing but through doing it with guidance. I hope to take more classes next year - we will see what happens by then.
I am going to link to Paint Party Friday. Go and visit to see all the wonderful art work displayed there - the site is faithfully maintained by the terrific team of Eva and Kristin. Thanks for visiting - hope to spend more time sharing now. Have a blessed and creative weekend.
