Had a go with clay at my art class, the idea was to make a tile to hang in the garden, we made the tiles and then glazed them.
I was not happy with the glazing so I ended up painting it with acrylics.
Thought I would create a design based on my tile, not coloured it yet but I have made copies to share round the class, looking forward to see what others make of it.
My art class tutor is always giving us different challenges. this one was to carve a bar of soap, When you start you soon realise just how much goes into carving, what to take away where to start it not as easy as you might think.
Hope you like my soapy green man.
Another term at artclass and we have been looking at art inspired by circus, had some great fun working with vintage photographs and some rapid scribbling, trying to create the energy of circus clowns.
Our Art class Exhibition.
This term at my art group we have been looking up at the skies, trying lots of different media, pastels acrylics watercolour mono printing and lots more.
We started sky diaries looking up everyday from the same viewpoint well worth doing just to appreciate the changing skies.
Looking at negative and positive space, in my art group last term , I had to have a go at a cutout, loads of respect to the artist creating cutout, this took me about 4 hours and it’s not that complicated.
Last term my art group looked at the 6 elements of art, how they are used and how they work together in art, we all took different motifs to illustrate them, some good learning to think about when making art.
Limited edition print Moon Rising, framed and on the wall.
This picture was created by my art class tutor Alice Walker from her summer exhibition.
Back at my art class and trying something new again. This week we were painting with credit cards, pushing scraping and dragging the paint around. Took me a while to get used to using this cumbersome little bit of plastic but I think l started to get it in the end. Using the card and a loaded brush dragging it over the paper worked well, wearing gloves is a good idea as it does get a bit messy, some finishing touches with a brush and some enjoyable splattering; I think it worked out ok.
I have been working on and off my senses project painting over the summer, started with a few sketches my first attempt didn’t really work, inspired by my visit to Upfest and all the wonderful urban paintings I had another go, this seams to happen a lot with my pictures, anyways its about done now.
Spent some time working out how to paint some of the elements, its been a good learning picture.
