Sixth sense

I have been working on my art class summer project Senses.

I had the idea of creating 5 tarot like cards one for each sense, trying to add a little twist to each illustration Sight being blindfolded  in the dark and Smell being roses and something rotting in a bag, I guess you get the idea.

The sixth sense is just suggested by a downturned card and the tarot.

Come to my Senses

Just finished a short term at art class, closing for the summer.

This term we looked at the senses  and the parts of the body we use for them ears, noses, eyes, lips and hands looking at the anatomy and how they fit into the face really good  stuff, if like me you like faces.

we  made  some 3D heads from dough, morphed animals into faces and faces into animals, sketched each others bits and looked at cartoons and how the artist simplify the features to capture expression.

I have planned two final pieces to complete over the summer,  one painting which I have  posted my sketch here and a set of 5 tarot cards covering each of the five senses and  hinting at the sixth.

Thanks for dropping in.
