My experiments

My experiments  - student project

I love this class ! Here's my first experiment. I was really excited to use different art supplies I had and I discovered that I actually enjoy using color, although I thought I only loved charcoal and black ink pen drawings. I'm looking forward to more discoveries through this class !

Soooo... following with the class, here's my self-portrait. I loved this excercice a lot, as I felt no pressure whatsoever. I really appreciated that Marie-Noëlle showed us her own process through the course.

Next I tryied to use colors for the sketchbook cover page but I didn't like the way it looks at all. I figured out I liked colors in smal doses :) so I started again and made something diffirent that I'm more satisfied with.

I'm very slow with this class but I think it's really great to take the time to try different things and learn from it. So, hopefuly, there's more to come.

Going on with the assignments, my next project is drawing with music. I've been very much into watercolors lately so here's the result :

The photo is not so great but I really like the way the colors look like, very soft and gentle. The song was "Loud like love".

For the next one I made a few versions of poppies. I should have done them in ink though because the drawing doesn't stand out that much on the page :

I loved the idea of trying different styles and I really like the "origami" look of the one in the upper left corner. Great discovery !
