So what's with 365 Days of art?
Join me on my art adventure. I create five pieces of art a week, it's all about inspiration and a love of creating. Have a go with me or just sit back and be inspired. Side Note: I love seeing your creations or just connecting with fellow art pilgrims, so head on over to Twitter and flash that tag, I'm also technically on Instagram and do post there but I've no idea what I'm doing, what are 'stories' even for?!?
I'm taking my tasks from the fabulous artist and art author Lorna Scobie.
Task; Collage a still life.
So we've got a big one right out the gate. After my last attempt at collage, I was looking forward to this... collage is such a fun medium to work with, and I wasn't disappointed. I started in on the Niagara Falls sized pile of food magazines I have and got stuck it. I like the collage artist who uses the medium to be surreal, so that's the direction I went.
Say Hello to Sunflower Burst.
( Yeah I've started naming my art... what of it. )
Task; Fill the page with coloured stripes.
We are going off road... not the plain old stripe for me... no not for Eli here, we are turning it up to 11! Well, maybe nine...hmmm okay a strong 7. Definitely six seven.
I didn't just want to paint stripes; I wanted something cute and fun and just a bit more interesting, so I went with the straight up Pinterest classic rain (stripes) on the old umbrella trick. Enjoy the fruits of my unoriginal mind.
Task: Calligraphy Practice
Uni pen... check
Short snappy quote about writing... check
Task: Add colourful flowers to the vines.
So I was supposed to add flowers to the overall vine scene, but you snap me open and like a seaside stick of rock right through the core of me the words; 100% doodler. I like to doodle, and I'm a grown-up so I've doodled my own vines. So there.
Viva la revolución
Task: Design a pattern using the grid.
What's more to say except I can use
pencil crayons... and can muddle a
That's it folks.
Join me next week when I up my game with vases, pants and more doodling...
But if you can't wait, here is where it all began with Week 1.
