This week’s lesson was by Jenny Doh is – Unraveling Through Mark Making.
First of all, this lesson was way beyond my comfort zone. Some people are able to make awesome intuitive creations, but I had a hard time with this.
I created two today because the first one was done totally without thinking, spent too much time on it, and I feel it was a total mess. I used fluid acrylics, high flow acrylics, fine line applicator, Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, and palette knives.
I started out by dropping two colors of ink and using my spatula to make marks on the paper, then I switched to the fine line applicator and some black India ink. I didn’t like what was going on so I started on the left side of the paper just using the red and violet. I could see what looked like a red hat, so I went with it; then added the face. I call her The Red Hat Lady. She’s looking pretty sad because she just saw what was behind the curtain on the right side. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it! LOL
This is a closeup (she’s so sad!)
I also dripped some of the paint and added red lines – doesn’t it look like a shower curtain? LOL
The next piece is my sort of non intuitive painting – I didn’t know what I was going to make, but after laying the paint and making some circles, I decided very soon into the process that I was going to make a face – yeah the face of punk girl!
The word for this one is Just Be – whatever you want to be – Just Be!
Close up of the face (purple mole, or is it just a stain?)
I used a pink neon high flow acrylic paint for the title and made other marks with the violet, red, and black inks.
Well, I’m just glad I did it and got it over with. Maybe I wasn’t in the right frame of mind for doing this type of art, but I gave it a try and hopefully next time I will like it a bit more!
Thanks for stopping by and…
Keep on crafting!
