I See a Bird and a Piano!

….a piano????

This is day 92 of my 365 Days of Art challenge. In my last posting I told you about Carla Sonheim’s challenge More is More. This is my second attempt at taking a piece of art that I wasn’t thrilled with and adding more paint. For this one I was a bit more whimsical and started to add some funny little character drawings throughout. I sent the finished piece via WhatsApp to my granddaughter and asked her what she saw. Her reply was ‘a bird and a piano’.

Here is the original art followed by the new piece. What do you see?fullsizeoutput_6d09

365 Days of Art – More is More

….Day 91

Normally we say less is more but for this assignment from Carla Sonheim we were to take a painting that we weren’t crazy about and add more paint. The steps involved covering the whole piece with a gel medium, let it dry, and then apply colour randomly with paint markers. The whole idea was to create like a child and not think about it too much. After the piece was covered with marker the fun really began. I used more paint markers, black Sharpie and white gel pen to add more line detail for this piece. Here is the original piece followed by the new piece.
