Art Every Day






For Day 3 and 4 in Art Every Day Month

Background made on 4 x 6 canvas board.
I'm trying to use up supplies I have around the house.
I have no idea why I bought the 4 x 6 canvas boards.
They come in a pack of three and so far, I've found two packs.

I applied a *sort of* thick layer of gesso and then stamped into the gesso leaving an imprint.
Fluid acrylics added and rubbed with a baby wipe.


Background: AEDM Day 3

Day 4

I did some more stamping.
More Golden Fluid Acrylics including gold.
More rubbing.
Added lady (she is from a woodblock print by Hokusai).
I love her glasses.
Added the bird.

Lady 2

Lady #2
(I feel a series coming on!)

More information about AEDM can be found here.

Wishing all of YOU well and much joy!

These are lovely! Lady #2 really caught my eye. How wonderful that you are participating in this--I think it's great to intentionally make art every day. Have fun!

Judy Hartman said...

Adorable. Happy AEDM!

This piece came together perfectly. You make really, really, really great art. Like you, I like the glasses on the lady, something you seldom see in Asian photos and images. Wonderful art today!!

These are lovely - I like the idea of using up stuff you have in supply at home - I go through phases of using different size canvasses and have a bunch of 40x50cm ones which are currently being neglected in favour of tiny 5x5 inch ones as I'm going through a 'small' art phase! I love the Japanese Lady with the bird.

Love the texture on the first piece - very pretty! I like the thick look of it. The second art piece also has some awesome texture.

dawn said...

How pretty both these are. I love the texture and that you add things as you go along. It's always a good idea to use up what we have before buying all new again. Have fun and enjoy using up your stuff.

I love find art supplies Ive forgotten about. I love it even more when I can make something good out of what I've found! Great job on this! Love those colors!

Oh, I love the colors! They are pulling me right in! Everything is so fluid and the movement is so appealing-

Using baby wipes made me giggle. {smile} I adore both of these, but the first one is my favorite!
