Week 8 of 48 weeks, abstract!

What was initially intimidating was ultimately liberating. My first abstract was fun after I realized there is no right or wrong, just a feeling that you're creating, I think the fun I had shows in this mess.

Week 7 Donna Downey's 48 weeks, color glazing galore!

Week 7 of Donna Downey's 48 weeks.
This week I created a stencil of the woman's profile, which was pretty easy and opens up a world of ideas for me.  Also we used molding paste in the stencils and many layers of glazing.  Again with the drips and splatters, something it have not mastered....  But again, the whole thing was great fun!

48 weeks, week 6. Joint tape poppies.

Week 6 of Donna Downey's 48 weeks has us using joint tape for texture, under many layers of glazing. Then stenciling some numbers on with paint. Well, I used some Dylusion's ink spray and found out that it spreads every time it gets wet, causing somewhat of a mess, it's not the same as paint. Anyway, in the end, another fun assignment. I am continuing to learn a lot, and using many new techniques and supplies.

48 weeks week 5 fiber paste and glazing

This week in Donna Downey's class we used fiber paste and a lot of glazing. I especially liked using the glazing for shading, and the faber cast ell big markers for shading the moon. Again a bunch of new techniques and materials. The fun continues....

Graphics 45 12 days of Christmas display box

I used the Graphics 45 12 Days of Christmas paper and tags n such to make a display for each 12 days. They fit inside the 7 gypsies box and peek out the center opening. I slide the box open and move through the days to display each one.

48 weeks texture and sketching

The glazing technique is readily becoming a favorite for me, I like the ability to blend and work the color around loosely. I did think i used to know how to sketch, apparently that went the way of fingerpainting. it also looks like I'm missing something in the composition, but I can't figure out what....

48 weeks week 3 mesh and glazing

I enjoyed the glazing techniques, but have a heavy hand with the color. I really enjoyed the mixture of media on this challenge.

48 weeks week 2 fingerpainting

I don't remember fingerpainting to be so challenging. I was just probably less discriminating! again all new materials to me... I did really like the Golden Fluorescent paints.
