Today’s project was the beginning of all of my experimenting and curiosity coming together.
I’ve spent 7 months being curious about all types of art, inspiration, and styles. So that I can increase my skills and confirm what I love and what I’m passionate about.
So last week I used work from Egon Schiele as my inspiration, and this week I’m taking two of my inspirations and putting them together.
With each experiment I’m learning what I love and what I don’t.
I’ll share in the video how moving forward I’ll start bringing more of myself into what I’ve done and today was a perfect example of that.
Unlike last week’s project (which this one is very similar to), this one has more freedom, texture, layers and pattern. Which I love! It has more of the colors that I love.
I’ll share more about how I move forward to close out the year with my creative process in the video. Oh, and I used my wet strength tissue from last week’s video and made my own texture paste!
I hope you enjoy the project and always know that you are loved!
