I occurred to me that I hadn’t posted my weeks 10 and 11 from the class so here they are.
And here is mine:
Once again doing a human figure was a bit daunting but I did it and I really like how her hair braid turned out. The drippage for the skyline wouldn’t quite work for me so I went my own way on that part.
This is how my book looks after 11 weeks of art added to it.
This time I remembered to do some process pictures. This is how it started off by adding a few bits of ephemera and paint-able wall paper.
Next I went in with several shades of blue using my fingers to get into all the nooks and crannies of that textured paper.
Then I did more finger-painting to create the flowers and a small brush to make the outline of where the vase would be:
Here is the finished page. I added the green colors around the vase to help it stand out from the page.
Here you can see a close-up of the image I used and the wallpaper. I think it looked pretty cool with the way the different colors collected on it.
Here you can see some of the detail work I did on the flowers
And finally the stamp I used on the vase along with how the textured turned out there.
Week 11 was pretty fun. I enjoyed the freedom of making flowers by just rubbing paint on the paper with my finger to get a circle of colors. That contrasted with the precision painting needed for the stripes on the vase is pretty cool.
I have a couple other things I have made but I will post them tomorrow or the next day so there isn’t so much stuff to look at in one post. I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoy your weekend.
