I am sinking into art and loving it.
I am expanding my artistic comfort zone, discovering new-to-me tools and artists that are bringing an entirely new creative energy to my usual mix.
I'm two weeks into Pauline Agnew's Draw and Paint What You Love, Part 2. In case you missed it, earlier this year Part 1 had me busting through artistic comfort zones and producing art I never thought I'd be capable of producing.
This second e-course is proving to be just as transformative as the first one, opening me to yet new creative possibility.
Here's a glimpse of what I've been doing so far:
I made marks to the sound of jazz. It made my soul sing.
I sketched something from my studio. I resisted this and found it frustrating, which probably means I should practice it more.
I learned new techniques that led me to painting a photo of Cassie I'd been wanting to paint for a while. She's still a work in progress (I think); I still can't believe I even got this far!
Then, through Pauline's lessons, I explored technology and how it could help me in my art.
In the process I discovered that I LOVE making digital art. I'm hooked!
More digital imagery, the possibilities are endless.
I am learning a LOT and frankly I'm a wee bit overstimulated. But that's OK, I can take it.
