I have 111 books in my studio (yes, I counted them) that are Tutorials, and I acquired them slowly over about 10 years. I find that I no longer go to them for inspiration, and decided to get rid of them. Before I do that, however, I’m going to TRY to do ONE PAGE out of each book. Wish me luck……
18 Books Down, 93 to go….
Finding Your Visual Voice by Dakota Mitchell
I might keep this book, it’s really inspiring…..
I am drawn to art that
- is Representational but not Realistic
- incorporates bits of ephemera/torn paper
- has a figure in it
- uses color dramatically
- evokes a story in my head
I’m writing this part of the blog post before I even start the piece, so that I commit to the Intention. I’ll attempt a small piece using the four parameters above.
Update: Here’s what I’ve got so far….. 10×12 Acrylic on Canvas. It will be called “The Letter….”
I’m happy with how it’s progressing.
