Harvest moon

Some art from this week.

'Harvest moon', acrylics and collage, 12 ins sq., paper

'Lotus flower mandala', marker pens, 12 ins. sq. paper.

'May we come indoors now?' pen and ink, A3, paper

1. Harvest moon: I decided to collage +Gelli Arts gelli printed deli paper to a piece of fairly heavy paper and then looked for images in the paint splodges.

The image of a girl with some pet birds in front of a harvest size moon seemed to make best sense of the splodges for me.

The image at the moment is fairly roughly painted,  but I like it this way.  I can always do another version of the image later, by tracing the image and painting it in another medium or colour scheme.

2.Lotus flower mandala: this is a simple lotus flower mandala from the course by +Julie Gibbons , five days of Mandala magic.  

I used Berol kids markers to colour it.  I have had these markers for years...and they are still fresh and full of paint.

3.May we come indoors now? : This was from a reference photo in the WDE project at wetcanvas.

The original cats were ginger in colour, but I'd used so much black ink drawing these guys that when I put the orange on it mixed with the black ink and the 3 kitties became brown tabbies!!

Another one to do over perhaps.

That's about all I did...apart from adding to my bundle of gelli prints on deli paper.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Bye for now.
