Embracing My Art

Inspired by Ria's constraint of "abstract" i've decided to work LOOSE & JUICY.

Day 3 Music

My favorite song ever. Van Morrison's Moondance

Don't know why sometimes I can edit after the last post & sometimes only at the beginning. So no chronological order for me!

DAY 5 Shadow. Cast shadows painted in the style of Anne Abgott's Colorful Shadows...check out her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIyIBjacQ0U

DAY 7 COMPOSITION
I thought about balance, repetition & focal point as I painted these shells

DAY 8 MEMORY
A vaguely brainlike shape to start. Could this be how the synapses in the brain fire & connect to make our memories?

DAY 9 TEXTURE
Many ways to make texture with watercolors...dry brush, sponges, salt, splatters, drips & scrapes

DAY 10 TIME
I clearly have too many watches (which I never wear). Wonky drawings made with my left hand first and some details added with my right.

DAY 11 PERSPECTIVE
Drew a box in 2 point perspective over & over around the page. Filled in a few shapes with brush markers.

DAY 12 SPACE (outer)
Inspired by detection of gravitational waves. Toothbrush splatter on black paper. Can't decide which I like better. Opinions please.

DAY 15 BALANCE
Started out as an exercise in creating a balanced composition. But I think it's really about how I feel this week...trying to keep too many balls in the air!

DAY 16 DEPTH
Painting depth in the landscape with value & color temperature. Did I succeed?
