I have been having a blast playing with dye and water color recently. I got the idea to explore this material from my cousin Vanessa, who makes epic fabrics and other wonderful creations. You can check out her work HERE.
I almost always plan out my artwork in photoshop before getting near a paintbrush. I find that it helps me work through a composition and color scheme more quickly and helps eliminate the chances of more time-consuming revisions later on. Sometimes I like the photoshop collage enough to decide its a finished artwork. I will probably still try this one out as a painting to see what looks best.
Another window sketch I did last year but didn’t find interesting until now. I think that for me, time is the most essential ingredient for art making.
I made this sketch a while ago and really didn’t like it at the time but now it think its alright. I feel kinda silly stressing over abstract art- its like there is no real reason it needs to look a certain way except that it will drive me crazy if it doesn’t.
