First I want to say thank you for being patient with me yesterday. Sometimes I just can't access my photographs to post here!
I thought I would share a few things I have been working on lately. These are small, but some of what I do as "between work"!
This is a piece I did to see how the Ampersand board for watercolors (Aquabord) would work. I wet the surface of this product and then added the color. In this case, I used watered down acrylics. I love to let colors blend together as they wish, so this was the way I chose to begin with this one. The next thing I did was dry brush some pearl acrylic over the surface. As you probably know these reflective acrylics do not photograph well. Lastly, I used acrylic which was in my little squeezy bottles to add the small gestural mark. This is a 5" x 7" board.
The other little thing I have been working on is another weaving. This is, again, rice paper which I have slapped on some left over acrylic paint. This time, though, I have cut the strips with a mat knife rather than tearing them. I left one edge uncut on each piece to see if weaving it would be easier. As you can tell, I am still working on this one. I have no idea what I will do with it, but I can go in and weave a few inches when I have a moment, though. I will let you know more about how I proceed with this one!
Do you have things like this you do if you can catch a quick art moment? Tell me about it.
Have a Lovely Creative Day!
