This was a great day—we got to get our hands inky and our desks well-messy. Everyone was cutting out cardboard or foam to use on their collages (as such or as a stamp), which were meant to reflect the textures of the houses we’ve seen a few days ago on our “local area drawing trip”. We made photocopies and built upon them, or started from scratch—drawing inspiration from our original sketches.
I absolutely loved it—and used a wide range of media (acrylics, gouache, markers, watercolour, Prismacolors, ink, Gelatos, fabric, sewing thread, leaves and flower petals). I’ve created two pieces in class, and the other two back home. See the photos for details…
I’m looking forward to more messy classes!
With the first two pieces nearly finished during the class, and the other two done completely at home, I feel satisfied with my work. Next time I’m aiming at more of a “messy” finish though.
