Traci Bautista - this lady truly makes you look at your work - simply! Your art does not have to be unreachable - it is yours and can be made freely. I am taking her art.journal.PLAY 2015 online workshop, that so far, am really enjoying. I wish I had more time - but at this point...I will take what time I can to 'PLAY!"
Here are a few samples of what I did in her MOTIF part of the workshop (I will not do process as this is a paid class and will respect her work).
Here you can see my color palatte and paints of choice:
went the extra distance on my own and added some doodling!
project #3 right now, my fave! At first I had just picked the white, black and magenta (mixed white and magenta to get the pink), then thought about how to eliminate the white space...green it was - I told my self what is the worst can happen. I LOVE this page!!
I am working on another now - making 'flowers' with my brush. Not sure how much I am liking my flowers right now - but I will continue to work on them of course. I find adding the doodling, whether with pens or fineliners...really make a page for me.
my color palette...
it was not yet dry when I took the photos, and have not had time to get back down there to finish them off....maybe today!
This was exactly what I needed - just at the right time! With my (somewhat) art block - it truly freed up my mind and totally fell in love with the process of art, all over again.
see you again soon....w2
