I am working a lot on finding the right way to express myself artistically. At the same time I am just training my drawing skills. There are so many possibilities and I like to experiment with media and tools, just playing. But I often feel that it is not the right thing I am doing. It is not art that I am making, just drawings and paintings not worked through thoroughly, without a deeper meaning.
Maybe I just have to give art the time it deserves?
Then of course I have other things to do, important also, like finishing my education. That is why I do not paint all the time, just a quick sketch here and there. Yesterday my paintbrush called for me, so I just had to use it for yet another experiment.
And this morning as a warm up for the day, I worked on this painting of a woman lying down. I found her picture on the blog: http://womenpaintingwomen.blogspot.de
I covered the sketchbook page with acrylic and started sketching with a pastel, bye and bye adding graphite water color pencil, more pastel, acrylic and pastel... At times I thought it would become a total mess, but at this stage I like the abstract expression of the painting.
What do you think?
As the above painting was not really finished, I worked on a bit. Still something to do, I think.
The last Photo is a sketch of some tiny owls, they made me smile big, when I saw them. Maybe they will be integrated in my story with Rugana on her mission?
Wish you all a happy PPF and a weekend as you'd like to have it - joyful, relaxed, quiet or full of people.
