Until this week... no excuses (except maybe school hols, extra workload at work, a website to build and the flu). So again, in the interest of not dropping the boot camp ball all together.. or my own marbles, I decided to dig deep and create a painting using the last three days prompts. Oh, and I've also started another amazing on-line art course (which I'll blog about next week) in which I'm learning lots of textured background techniques.. I might throw those in too.
Soooo... for Flora's boot camp we need CONTRAST. And I think I'll SIMPLIFY my approach by focusing on 2 things... a monotone palette (I chose pink) plus white & black, and my theme which is of course SPREADING LOVE.
For my other course I need to LET GO, EMBRACE THE CHAOS and practice my DRIPPIES, BRAYERING, SMOOSHIES, WATER BUBBLE DISTRESS, PAPER TOWEL RESIST, TEXTURE TOOL TECHNIQUES, STENCILING and lastly, STAMPING.... phew!
So what would we get if we threw all that together I wonder ???.....
Yep, total chaos... lol.
Far out it was fun though!!!
And I'm totally amazed at how much drama you can create with just one colour tone.
And the textures are just amazing, check out the close-ups below...
Thank you once again Flora (and Kelly Rae), tonight was a blast :)
PS. I have tomorrow off... just saying :)
