I’m Calling it Finished – Day 72

…..365 Days of Art

I’m glad I waited before I declared my abstract piece finished. I added more grey to to top of the painting and I added more colour throughout. I was thinking of adding a third layer of highlight markers but instead I took my Micron pen and added more line and dot detail. I’m now happy to say that it’s complete.

Knowing When to Stop – Day 71

……365 Days of Art continues

This morning Jill Kuhn from Jill’s Art Journal posted a work in progress that inspired me to use some more of my circles using a similar technique. Jill didn’t use collage and most of the colour came from the use of watercolours. I started by making lines and circles with my Micron pen around circles that I randomly glued to my paper. Then I used my Staedtler and Faber Castell markers to add colour.

I continued to add more colour to the larger spaces. I didn’t want to fill in every space and many of the spaces are quite large so my next step was to take a 6B Staedtler pencil and add more circles over the whole  page. Here’s what I have for now. I’m debating whether to add another layer or leave it as is. In art there is a fine line between knowing when to stop and when to continue.fullsizeoutput_6e08

Now that I see it from a new perspective I might add more dark grey to the upper portion. What do you think?

365 Days of Art – The Remote Control

…..day 70

As I was looking for something to sketch I picked up the remote control and decided that it had some interesting possibilities. When I finished it I considered drawing the other remote control next to it since there was room but instead I decided to play with some more of the circles that I had cut out last week. I added text and a little bit of line work to add more interest.
