Summer is progressing along and I have been filling my days with house projects and trying to stay caught up in making some art. The house projects are going well 😉
I made a 14 page journal a couple of weeks ago and filled it with whimsical drawing that I completed all in one sitting. I did them quickly so I finished 14 of them in about 45 minutes. I wanted them to be spontaneous and creative. Not having to “think” about the direction and just go in a direction.
Here are a few of them
I them decided that I would, for now, work in stages on the paintings. Draw then base coat and then finish with some mixed media goodness.
I started tonight with the painting that looks like this.
The double pages look like this
I used pencil crayon to develop the face and sharpen up some of the edge details.
Pretty happy with her and tomorrow I am either going to prep some more pages or work on one of the painted pages.
Here are a couple more painted pages that are just waiting for some finishing touches.
Thanks for looking!
