1. 'Game of chess', collage and acrylics, 12 by 12 ins., paper
2. 30 days art journal, mixed media
3. Susie at play
4. Susie at play with catnip toy
Well, that was a fast week. I didn't get much done, and I am now behind with the art journal challenge.
The painting of the chess game started out as a collage of ripped up gelli deli prints. I saw the figures in the pieces and then used acrylics and some pen to define them. I wasn't happy with the collaged background as the figures didn't stand out and so I used white to 'erase' the background around the figures. Then I painted the chequer board floor pattern...with 'creative' perspective.
I may re-do this painting with more precise perspective detals later on, if I get around to it.
The prompts for the 30 day challenge were: sports (not my thing) and faith. So I listed the sports I played at high school and which I have never played since then. And for faith/spirituality, I put 'freedom'.
To finish, here are a couple of shots of Susie with her fancy new toys. She does love them, but guess what.... a piece of string is still her favourite!!
Have a great weekend!
