(Soft pencil sketch with textured acrylics surrounding it. In a little circle. Because I love having little circles as backgrounds. I think I have decided it’s my style.)
Also, I like to make gifs on giphy, and I never use any of their unnecessary effects. Except that maybe I’ll start to. They’re kinda fun.
(This is also on Etsy of course)
I’ve always struggled with painting landscape. But here are some things that make it easier:
(Continuing from my last post, I’ve been sharing a lot of my art on etsy lately. Mainly pretty small things, because then they don’t have to be that expensive but it can still be an original piece. I want to write some sort of essay about that – on the merits of original art, simply because I believe there is power and beauty in that kind of shared creativity. I don’t know exactly why or how though, so I want to figure it out for myself to tell it better to others. Anyway, here’s a link.)
(Little set of 2)
A documentation of the sky. This is my new diary, a documentation of different skies – although it’s the same sky, I suppose, like Monet’s water lilies. Painted in different seasons and different light.
I want to put them in a little case because they’re becoming too many, carry them with me. Maybe put them in a journal, one on each page.
(Meaningless art; A new series I want to do, because I’ve been so preoccupied with art being useful that I’ve forgotten how to make stuff just cause I feel like it. I’ve been stuck in What do I do with this? How can I sell this? How do I use this? And I want to go back to just making some stuff, not really for any specific purpose. Meaning: not really for any commercial purpose. Sometimes not even specifically for it to be good.)
So, first out, here’s a digital version of an old photo I stumbled upon when looking through this blog. The photo’s originally from this post.
