My drawing and painting life
Week 3 was a wonderful week as far as art making is concerned. I’m giving you a collage view for this week. Some I already showed earlier.
The week runs from Friday July 15 (a studio day) until Thursday July 21. I would have had two studio days, if only I hadn’t tripped in the garden on my way out on the Saturday (ouch!). So I had just the one day – Friday – which gave me some wonderful results. I started painting squares at home (the tree and the sunflower, a bit rushed but I loved it that rough). Later that day in the studio, I took two square paintings and added oil pastel. You’ll see the painting called “Curiously unfocused focus painting’, turning into a wonderful landscape (see below, second row, painting on the right). I also played with watercolor. A watercolor lab of sorts, an experiment to let gravity work on the paints and allow them to run down a page. That was fun!
I had three Zentangle practice sessions this week. You’ll see that those few already affected my art (I let it, as I wanted to look for new ways to work on the square paintings). That led to the three paintings in fourth row (next to the watercolor experiment).
After the fall in the garden on Saturday, when the pain subsided, I sat down and did some Zentangle practice (not scanned yet, sorry) … Later I painted the purple landscape with sun and tree – see the second row. That was the start of several paintings started with purple and magenta (and alike). See the tree and the next sunflower in third row. In the end I painted two abstract land- and seascapes in the more rough and ready style of before.
I rather love those two in the last row. The one on the left is called “Ghost of boat”. The second should have a title, but I don’t know yet. I am open to ideas for a title for this one:
