A new colour for the Spectrum Square challenge.
Far, far out in space,
Where stars burn and comets race,
Is Planet Zog, a little place
With a tiny moon keeping pace…
Such is the bad piece of poetry that started the book I haven’t written about Splog and Blog.
I have to make more of an effort to do artwork every day. I’m finding that I’m blogging every day, but not so much doing the art I want to blog about, so, uh, yeah, I need to rewire my working schedule.
The Creative Every Day challenge has helped me out a lot in the past, but over the last couple of months, I’ve let it slip. I think I need to put a bit more effort in to keep it up (says me at ten past midnight).
So, what have I managed to do this past week?
This week I have fallen back into playing with my acrylics, so I thought I’d nosey around at what others have been doing with acrylic paint. Shortly after starting my gander, I fell in love with a seascape and found myself looking around at more of those, so this week we have Seascapes as a topic to gaze at.
Calothamnus (common names include ‘Net Bush’) is a genus of plants confined the Western Australia. This one is from my In-Law’s front garden. It is responding to the unusually wet summer we’ve had, and has thrown on all this beautiful new growth. I was up there picking up my daughter when I saw it and had to rush home to grab my camera. The colours in this are fantastic and I may create some artwork from it.
I’m learning. And as I learn, I’m hoping to share what I learn. These are the tools and techniques and other little arty technical thingies that I’m playing with at the moment. I hope they are useful. ( a new series to tie in with my experiments and explorations – today I finished my Wreath Wattle painting and experimented with glazing)
God, this is scary – actually writing it down. Does this mean I actually have to follow up on it? 😀
It is more of a project than a resolution, but it is something that has been floating around in the vast empty space I use for a brain for several years now, and it is something I really should get off my butt and do.
