I've been working right along side each week with a class and I couldn't help myself but fall in line with my students. Here is my image from last week, I'm posting all the viewfinder images, sketches and the art work I've created along with it. The class will be working with the sketches for another week before the final assignment on the watercolor paper. We are sticking with just magazines...but I'm hearing there hard to come by. I just wanted to have everyone use the same paper source and so there's not distractions about all the other papers people would be using. Crazy but us mixed media collage artist Ooh and Ahh over stuff like that and loose focus really fast.
But then maybe that's just me.
Sketch 2- was created no sign of bricks in this one but horizontal and shapes amplified and distorted.
The Art work created from the sketch 2 as a reference, All papers altered in some way and coated with polymer medium, graphite crayon used along with glazing and splattering. final size 14 x 14.
This week We are to turned the viewfinder reference image to a different angle to see how this might inspire me.
My Sketch that was inspired by the reference. Each and ever time I distort something else and explore the hints and nudges come from the intuitive signal I'm hearing form the artist inside of me. Each time I do these there are areas I like and areas I don't...hard for some to show the ones that just don't cut in my book but it's much more it's about knowing what you like and don't like and looking for ways to get it work in you art. Problem solving...
This weeks art work from the viewfinder in a the vertical direction. This will got out in my email weekly newsletter as "Let it Flow" something I was thinking about all day long and to let what is inspired to flow. The reference was a viewfinder shot of a wall with horizontal sections on the wall. And there was bricks slightly visible. Here I play with the brick shape by cutting it out of the papers and also adding them on top of other papers.
