Sketch Exchange and ExperimentingPosted: June 22, 2014
Lately there are more “experiments’ in my art life than their are finished intentional works. Maybe this is a good thing because it certainly doesn’t leave me feeling self conscious about the things I am making. As I mentioned before I’m working through a backlog of projects. This one is for the sketchbook that my sister and I pass between us. I’ve posted more in depth explanations on this in the past. You can see the posts here and here.
This one was totally inspired by doing something with many textures and mediums. In previous exchanges between the two of us part of the fun for me was trying to push the idea of what our format was. The “postcard” exchange was all about that for me. So feeling nostalgic I wanted to try something like that again. A little metal leaf, acrylic paint and some pink thread later this one came out of my brain. It’s got me thinking about other possible explorations along these lines. More experiments to come I guess 🙂
It’s also been awhile since I’ve shown any process work so I’m adding in a few shots of the work in progress.
