Hello again. I'm back today with the beginning of my art journal ( the cover post can be found here). The new intuitive painting challenge over on the Mixed Media Place blog caught my eye. I' m very curious where this journal will take me, how it pans out.
So I wanted to use the phrase "Can't see the wood for the trees", it's something I had knocking around my head recently. The colours I chose were suitably organic using just 5 colours, and I found it rather intriguing to see what could be created using limited materials.
I was feeling quite emboldened to just get the paints and inks out and just go with this, I think there's certainly a sense of freedom in there.
I use a large flat brush for bold strokes and a small stiff brush for the trees, highlighting areas with white and a black fineliner pen.
I hope this has got some of your creativity flowing and inspired!
