I’m taking part in Suzi’s new class, “A Lovely Dream” – it’s an art journal workshop that goes from September to May – lots of stuff to do! (And if you buy it before September 15 you get it $10 cheaper).
Here are two drawings that will go in that journal – they’re not finished here, they will be cut out and put on a background with some other images:
[clicky for biggy]
“False Friend” has a knife in one hand (to stab me in the back) while the other hand holds a tulip. The background is Ranger Adirondack acrylic dabber paint in “Sandal” and the coloured pencils are all Prismacolor (which I just lovelovelove!).
“Small Town Art Critic” is determined not to like anything he sees because he is a blocked artist himself who hasn’t done any art in years, but he goes to every gallery opening and drinks the free wine. Background is some cheap craft white acrylic paint, drawing in Prismacolor pencil.
Both are on old book pages – there’s something about painting/drawing on book pages I really like – I did a lot of it when I was doing the Art Diploma course at TAFE.
And we have new neighbours in one of the three properties around us up for rent. Time will tell if they’re bearable… so far she seems to be on a cleaning jag, scrubbing the bathroom windowsill with a toothbrush – sheesh! (I dare not scrub ours because the wood has rotted!) No big dogs or hordes of toddlers in evidence as yet…
