Wild Experiment in Acrylics

Sheltering in place


This is what happens on about day seventeen of sheltering in place! You begin to make up your own outdoors and your own wild spring flowers!




On days 18 and 19, you begin to resort to a self-portrait challenge! More on that later.

And when you keep walking past your painting and seeing things in it that are bothering you. Now I see some shapes in the background that I liked better in the earlier version.



I hope to finish this experiment someday.

WORKING IN SKETCHBOOK

Lately, I have been working in my sketchbooks. This is my latest drawing that I did in pastels of a photo that I took this past Thanksgiving week at a restaurant called Mi Familia in San Antonio.

January 2020

Winter can tend to be a good time to simply experiment with your art. I decided to take one particular pose and experiment using Zen Doodle designs in order to see how strongly design sets the tone of a drawing.

Of course I knew ahead of time that design has a very strong influence, but oftentimes seeing is really believing.

I personally like the softness of the second pose, but what if denoting strength was your objective?
