The other day I was in an art class and I painted some paper. I painted on newspaper, copy paper and watercolor paper. Eric Carle reminds me to paint. All we need to do is pick up the brush and paint. We grown ups complicate everything. Here’s to love.
Nature is always whispering love me. Surrender to me.
Now it’s time for tea, Snickers and sketching. Maybe I’ll paint afterward.
I am eager to finish but it’s important to take my time. Flowers need time to bloom. Blue and orange are great together. Pinks and peaches bring out the lighter tones. Just go with your ideas and see what happens. In the end it’s going to be beautiful! Don’t worry about mistakes. Have fun. These colors make me smile Maybe do a few deep green leaves. Blues make orange look good. Hearts. I like where this is going.
These were just a few of my thoughts. I’ll finish this print tomorrow.
Let me see, I used a paper roll to stamp with acrylic paint. Then I used watercolor to fill in the petals. Oh and the stems. This is going to look so much brighter and colorful when I scan it. And yes I do have to erase the thin stem. And the fun didn’t stop there because I used the top of the yellow brush handle to stamp the brown dots.
Painting this flower made me as happy as the yellows and pinks. For hours it was just me, my tools and my ideas. Wait till you see the other flowers. I am excited still. I hope to build and share this community with you. That is what creatively hue is all about. I am dreaming of the workshop and soon to be courses. Yeah. I am going to make many more flowers.
I have made these for my book Creative Bloom. The best part is that there are so many possibilities in how you stamp to how you cut your paper roll. Many many more of these to come.
Apply the color in dots. Spread with your finger. Pink ones. Yellow ones. Blue ones. Peach ones. Monotones. What a great idea. The very thought of art is my happy place. Definitely going to rescan this flower.
Sometimes it is such a releaf to let go and see what happens. Always! Maybe you accidently dip in the wrong color but now you know that with the right colors you have an awesome idea. Since 100 ways, I have ideas for stems and colors. These will make great little drops of happy. An artist, @ettavee mentioned this in a recent workshop. Any of course I was like yes! This is what my art means to me. Some people write the great song I can’t stop signing and don’t want to. I paint. I could do this forever. I am. I will!
May has come and gone. June is a good time to launch creative bloom. I’ll be working on a color project. There’s an idea related to my wise trees. I use trees to talk about my love of people. I could do the same with color? Ok now I’ll go try the seamless pattern tutorial again.
