I have been thinking constantly about the recent project that I posted. I have been excited about what I discovered and this leads me to the message that I want to create in my art. I just want to say that everything we do has a connection to the world and it makes a difference….you make a difference.
This project was amazing. I am an up and coming artist. I put way to much pressure on myself to be perfect and want to make a living doing what I love, that I haven’t felt free to just let the creativity flow. This projects really revealed the following. I write and think about love a whole lot. I love nature and am always daydreaming about how everything is connected. I am connected to the world with its nature and animals and the emotions that make us all human of course. I drew all of these within 5 minutes and the goal was to just let your creativity flow and develop a style. If you want a try at this let me know and I will post the link here. I was just so excited to post my work for the online class on skillshare that I had to copy it here.
1 Draw Standing Up. Wow this began this whole notion of just going with it and tapping in to the expressions and emotions that are well me.
Draw with Music- Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran I simply scribbled and drew without any plans and then I went back ans stared at it for a while trying to make something of the shapes and swirls.
Draw with rotation See right through the heart
Draw while blindfolded
I thought this was going to amount to nothing but out of no where the shapes became animals and … Do you see the hidden puppy. I drew an olive and then I looked at it and saw ears…do you see it?
draw while talking and watching t.v and listening to others.
I had no idea at first but then I made out a pink crayon, old record player, heart kite,
so much. I am so grateful for everything in my life. I haven’t been feeling well but all of a sudden I feel better. I have been working on my art and loving every minute of it. I will be taking pictures of my art and posting them here. I want to remind everyone to please help me donate money to children in need. I will be buying toys with all of the profits for the following designs.
You can use these as part of your Thanksgiving decor. They are 5.00 each and available instant download. Thank you for your help. I already have some money.
If you know about skillshare then you know how awesome it is. If this is the first you hear of skillshare then please check it out. It is a great learn at your own pace free course in several topics. Here is what I have learned in the Hand Lettering Course.
Have a Good quote that means something to you. I chose Happy is here, there and everywhere.
Brainstorm ideas by listing words or pictures that relate to your quote. Just jot down whatever pops in your head. Who know where it will lead.
Step 3 Just do some sketching and have fun playing.
Do some thumbnails.
Come up with something you like and keep on working at it till you get the desired look. I enjoyed going through these steps and working on this. I would love your critique. I am new and these are just drafts and I have yet to finalize.
The happy ribbon is not part of the drawing, It was just another idea I played around with. So again I am just starting out and and self taught. As I said I enjoyed this piece and would love your feedback.
I chose the font and this floral vine going through because I love nature and there is something about playing outside, going for a walk and playing with my dog that makes be happy. I wanted to capture this in my art. I think it would be awesome to have the Happy be decorated in a wood element to complete the whole nature theme. I chose a blue bird because they are beautiful singing birds and well what do you think? Each project you work on takes time. Oh I went for a walk outside and explores the different signs in my area and looked at the elements at play like compositional hierarchy and contrasting colors.
I would love to see your work and have you critique my work.
Have a great rest of the week!
This is one of many pictures I take of items that inspire me. I have been going back and forth trying figure out what my style is and develop this in my art. I have been learning so much from skillshare. Please check it out if you are learning because it is a wonderful place to learn from the pros.
So what is my style…well I write to inspire children to dream and embrace who they are. I love the colors, nature and food. I do love the vintage style. In the coming weeks I will be sharing more of what I have been working on.
