If this is the first time you've been on my website... firstly welcome to my doodle world.
So what's with 365 Days of art?
Join me on my art adventure where I create five pieces of art a week, one of which I'll show you how to do. It's all about inspiration and a love of creating. Have a go with me or just sit back and be inspired.
I'm taking my tasks from the fabulous artist and art author Lorna Scobie.
I also have an Instagram thingy-majiggy. If you like what I do, then head on over and give us a like, you'll never miss out that way.
Task; Add patterns to the vases
I'm a big fan of colour in my wardrobe, hair accessories and room decor... but with art, I'm a monochrome momo, the soft greys of pencils, or the harsh lines of ink... but black and white patterns can get a little repetitive... so I had a thought, make it 'harder' to make it easier. Zone in on a theme and stick to it.
The Theme... birds.
Task; Continue the pattern
Not only did I nail this... but I am going to show you how I did it, though the power of pixels... or photos to you non-nerds.
Pick a teal-blue watercolour paint and make simple stalk like shapes. Leave a nice amount of space between them, you don't want the leafs to overlap.
Add some cute little dots, or any other simple shape. Doesn't matter if they don't look like flowers, this is a loose representation... Go wild children and be free.
Add simple leaves. Make the leaves fit into the space rather than all the same size, it will create a lovely natural patterned effect. Try to keep everything not touching... this pattern works because of the white spaces not despite them. This is not a Pollock; strictly a non-contact art work here.
And there you go... art in 3 easy steps!
Task: Design a pair of trousers
I'm making these jeans and I am going to rock them so hard all other clothes and the people who wear them will become obsolete. Get ready for being bland, I'm all the good things.
Task: Add trees to the forest
My creative juices are tingling...
Task: Draw something in pen.
This is my jam and to hammer the smug level up to a unsustainable levels. I linked this task to a flyer I'm making for a fabulous event I'm trying to wrangle together called a Creator's Feast.
That's it folks.
Join me next week while I play with still life, mess around with mood circles and teach you how to paint a gorgeous yellow field of flowers.
But if you can't wait, here is where it all began with Week 1.
