The rooster who was born with rainbow feathers and tries to change so he can be like other roosters. Then he realizes, there’s no one quite like me! Maybe it’ll make a good story someday?
Certainly is easier to draw when you realize a bird is a series of lines, patterns and shapes. Certainly feels free when you add ideas to your journal. Some will work. Many will not. At least you have ideas that YOU came up with. Ideas that will lead to the ones that work!
Flat brushes for flowers. Why not feathers!
Allow layers to dry before I apply the next color? Have more contrast in the color? Little elements to work on. It’s time to move on and make.
Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail. There’s only make. – Corita Kent
I want to spend more time on color. I have a good book in mind. I could look at my work and observe color. How does the color scheme represnt the emotions and sentiment?
Happy and sad are easy. As I watch a movie I can observe color and emotions within the scene.
Today I observed a floral jar on a coffee table. I looked at shapes, how I could paint each detail. Then I sat for less than 30 minutes. It seemed much quicker. I painted.
My goal was to play. I did. I used an angle brush for lines and the handle to stamp. Using my pinky finger for flower petails worked great.
The flowers are beautiful. I’ll have to paint this on thicker paper for the book! I am loving Corita Kent’s , Learning With Love.
Observing details and shapes makes drawing much easier. I had no idea that leaves and petals have lines and color variants only visible upclose. The lines are curvy or squiggly. That’s another project I’ll finish later.
