I am starting another series. I shared the start of my Whimsy Tree Series on Friday. I think series are a really good way for me to go. I have a goal each day, I have something to do and grow, I have direction. Pretty cool. I get to learn, share and create. What could be better.
Today, I share my first 5 faces. Love how they all turned out. I also, now have some goals for future faces. I am actually feeling excited about painting faces. LOL! It took me awhile to get here. So glad to have arrived.
Well, here ya go. My first 5 faces. I love that when I look at each face, they tell me a story.
I have decided to try doing a series again. The repetition can be tough. However, I have read that there is great reward at the end. The plan is to do a series of 10 Whimsy Trees.
Doing a series of paintings is a great way to grow your art, learn something new, try something new, learn what you do and do not like, try techniques.
Just doing the first 3 paintings in a row, is already proving to be a wonderful lesson in my own art and what I like most. I get to try different techniques, tools, colors and with each painting I grow, I learn. So far this is fun. I often get bored with the same subject but I am feeling happy and enthused with this one. Should I get bored, I will just move over to a different series…100 Faces…another challenge I am taking or perhaps I’ll do 10 Beautiful Birds. The point is, you can do more than one series at a time, if doing the same subject/theme/colors sends you into the “ho hums,” just do more than one series at a time.
If you decide to try doing a series keep in mind it is not about duplicating, it’s about doing the same thing in different ways, using different colors, different techniques etc. If nothing else, just have fun!
Here are my first 3 Whimsy Trees.
So tell me which is your favorite Whimsy Tree 1, 2 or 3, why?
Last night was another artsy, awesome time. We made another great art journal page. If you missed the Art Journal Party you missed a night of laughter, fun and creativity!
I want to thank everyone that came out to create with me. I truly enjoyed making “magic” with you. I hope you did too! Here, I share the WONDERFUL, art journal page we created!
Supplies used: DecoArts acrylics, PITT Pens, Dylusions Spray, Napkin, Faber Castell Pastell Pencils and stamps.
About this page: We are still following the prompts of Journal 52. This week’s prompt is “Napkin” This is my first time using a napkin on an art journal page. Don’t really have decorative napkins around so this one had to do.
Time for the another art journal class – Art Party Wednesday with Tiare and it’s going to be artsy! As usual, I will be live-streaming tonight in my pajamas, starting at 8pm est. I am excited to continue sharing my art with you. I hope that you are planning to join me. There’ll be crafting, laughter, chatting and fun! And it doesn’t matter whether you are a scrapbooker, art journaler, mixed mixed artist or card maker, the techniques I used can be applied to ALL! So be sure to tune in!
If you are planning to join the party, here is what you will need:
