I've been having a lovely arty-farty catch-up this Bank Holiday weekend. Here's my page inspired by a lesson with the wonderful Clair Bremner for Week 7 of Wanderlust 2017 ...
Clair uses acrylic paints to create the most beautiful, tranquil, fantastical landscapes. I was fascinated to watch her work - her skill with paintbrushes was so impressive. She made it look so easy to paint different shapes of leaves with round brushes; she used huge household brushes to apply paint, adding lots of water and allowing it to run down the page over the previous layers; then she used really small brushes to add tiny repeating patterns over the top.
Needless to say, it wasn't as easy as Clair made it look and mine wandered off in a different direction and found a different path - but I'm very happy with how it ended up. The accidental shape in the bottom right kinda looked like a figure silhouetted against the background, so I doodled around the shape to emphasise it.
I'm really enjoying Wanderlust, but not keeping up with all the lessons. That isn't important though - I'm enjoying the lessons, learning and being inspired and dipping in and out as and when I have time to play. So much arty-farting to do and so little time! :o)
Thanks for popping in to see me today, see you again soon!
