another amazing week of full circle. i have learned volumes. one of the major lessons learned is the use of charcoal pencils and the importance of layering paints. i had always worked in more or less of a flat way, self teaching myself from observation but taking a class has really opened up so many roads for me artistically.
i have been quite obsessed as a matter if fact, in a zone. so much so that when i ventured out of the house after four straight days in the studio i felt strange, confused and out of place like i had been in a coma.
you see, full circle workshop is filled with assignments and tutorials. and not only about painting and drawing but about writing, poetry, photography, journaling, music, collage, mixed media. there is enough fun for a decade.
i have really enjoyed the new photo apps
different filters and layers can make a photigraph so much more interesting.
but it's the painting that i most enjoy
at the moment, i am just playing in my moleskins and a large mixed media strathmore journal book
practicing, practicing , practicing
i also made a card for easter
for a dear artist friend
on watercolor paper
and worked some more on the cover of my moleskin
even made a handbound book as per instructions in the workshop
a little book that will be all about me at 58
