SEASON OF FAIRY TALES WEEK 1&2

Here are my pages for the first and second weeks of the new season of Getmessy Artjournal of Fairy Tales.

First week is my all time favorite tale of bluebird. The bird of happiness.

Second week is my take on Pushkin tale of Tsar Saltan. I loved listening to my grandmother reading it to me when I was a kid.


SKETCHBOOK

Another visual journal is finished. This was a bigger size and I loved working in it. Most of the pages are influenced by places and things I saw.

CANVAS PAINTING

I'm not a bit fan of canvas painting. I prefer plywood for bigger sizes outside of sketchbooks. This is what I created using all sorts of mediums.




SUMMER COLORS

Another summer page in my artjournal. Lately I've been using a lot of watercolor felt pens and glitter. The miscellaneous images on the page come from the previous weekend in Massachusettes in a camp. Such a great and fun experience!




SEASON OF COLOR WEEK 6

"I do not grow old
I simply feel more wild
with the need to dance"

This is the final week of Season of Color.



I was creating a lot of pastel/neon pages. One of the pages I made was just black. I used all black mediums I had. I couldn't help adding some colorful birds later.

I was also inspired by meeting Cait who is so very artistic and an amazing mexid media artist. I decided to make little holes in the pages because I absolutely love how Cait adds them to her art.




SEASON OF COLOR WEEK 5

This week for Get Messy Season of Color I created a page based on another beautiful landscape I experienced lately. I also liked Emmykait tutorial about shades and hues so I incorporated black and white.


SEASON OF COLOR WEEK 4

This week for Get Messy Season of Color I created a page based on a beautiful landscape I experienced. This is not so unsual for me. I often create pages that are influenced by what I did the day or week rarely month before. The is the habbit from my visual journal experience. Or maybe gouache sketchbook.

The yellow flower is the cactus I recently saw in a pot in NYC. It was so big and so bright. Dark sand color is the color of mud I was digging in last week looking for Herkimer Diamonds. There are lined diamonds there as well made with ball pen. The dark grey background stands for the Twin Peaks episode 8 that I watched a week ago. I was very impressed by the whole episode which had a lot of images of black and grey moving up and down. Very arthouse.
