I’ve been looking at doors, homes, water, art, people, food… beauty from around the world. I love learning about culture. Oh and the dragon bridge in Vietnam. In my next adventure I will be drawing, sketching and writing for a new book Around The World. I may still do a few flowers. SOmething else always comes up.
Here’s to learning how to be a better me by learning about others.
Corita Kent. Yes my collage work here is inspired by Corita. Her work was so simple and relatable. I could have learned so much with her as my teacher. I read her book and I am learning. What am I saying.
One of my favorites. I worked on this Peacock for a few days. I painted the texture with a small flat tree gumball. My inspriation was Eric Carle. I wanted to use color and texture to show the wonderful pattern and color in this world. I painted several texture papers. Then let my eyes choose the color scheme. Good job Thank you for subscribing.
I painted these flowers a few weeks ago. Time flies when you are in peace. This was part of my hand painting floral series. You create a hand fist and stamp with the bottom of your hand. You stamp in a circular motion. The color was all wrong. I kept it in a keep going pile. Sometimes work has an agenda of it’s own. Nothing a little oil pastel and pencil couldn’t fix.
Next week I want to go over my plans for the remainder of the year. Reflect on my work and work on projects, see where my thoughts lead me. Beginning November 1st I begin celebrations and exploring the world. Dia De Los Muertos is a perfect time to start.
Years ago I did a food coloring fall tree. It was for an RSP class. I thought I had the images but I deleted them. I should check my backup phone files. I deleted them. Here’s an interesting link. Today I’m going to recreate this project. Only instead of coffee filters and food coloring I’ll be using India ink and tracing paper. Perhaps leaves too. Tracing paper has a different texture and weight than filter paper.
What a great idea! I could use tracing paper for collage. Thick acrylic paint with interesting textures. Adding drops of color to a ceramic plate and then pressing the paper into the paint works great. Eyedropper not so good.
I am grateful for every opportunity that I have to share my art. I welcome many more days. I believe it’s official . I like the name Creatively Hue. I am all about creating for a better you. By the way I keep a collection of all things that insprie my work. Yesterday I added a bunch of Corita Kent work to my hand lettering board. She’s such and inspiration.
I came across a Ginko Tree. What a peaceful color. For these I mixed up acrylic and tempera paint. Warm inviting tones. The tones that help you connect. Used a flat brush to apply flat left and right shapes. Done. I like taking ordinary things and creating beautiful flowers. Still thinking of a name. I’m going to go checkout some creative blogs for ideas. CreativelyHue? Sounds good. There’s a creating for a better you vibe. Ordinary things? Maybe. I feel I should update my shop. I said I wasn’t but I should.
