Maybe some day I will be able to do that in the studio with my 'real work' as well.
Here are a couple of pages that have been languishing in my journal. I like the child silouhettes, but I have been feeling that another layer of colour would give it more punch. Something warm to contrast with the cool green and teal.
I mixed up an orange red with cadmium light and warm cadmium yellow and pounced it on with a sea sponge. Fun.
As I had the acrylics out, and was procrastinating about my new oil paintings (which are kinda scaring me) I thought I would attack some other art journal pages.
The page on the left is a wish page. I took a rejection letter from a gallery and reformed it into an acceptance page. That was a while ago and I am kind of over it. I want to jazz the page up and prepare it for some collage.
The page on the right is one we did in class, drawing what is in your bag. I was imagining a delicate watercolour and pen page, but I lost interest. This is one that could easily get worse, but I am attacking anyway. Take that!
I went in with the red acrylic. I am not thinking this out. The poor little drawing has gone completely blah next to that red.
