My Painting #27 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Challenge
Okay! We are at Day #27 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Daily Painting Challenge. Only 3 more days to go!
Here is another Vase Face. I used only black, gray and white acrylics for this one. Didn't want it to have any other colors. This one is in the style of Picasso as well.
Each day during this 30 in 30 challenge, I really enjoy visiting my 'favorite' artists. One of my favorites is Samara over at SamDoum Art. For the entire challenge, Samara has been completing Kaleidoscope Ink Paintings. Her kaleidoscope paintings are beautiful, delicate and very detailed. When you look at all of her drawings in a group, you can just imagine what it would be like to actually view them in a Kaleidoscope! Well, in one of her replies at her blog she was saying how fun and relaxing they are to paint. So... hmm... I thought I would give it a try because fun and relaxing sounds wonderful. She also mentioned that her designs are not planned ahead of time - just a spur of the moment painting.
So I pulled out a set of markers and a journal and began my quest. And Samara is absolutely correct! This was a very fun and relaxing experience. However, as you can see by my drawing below....I believe it will be 'back to the drawing board' for me. In fact, I know it will. I did however get the biggest laugh out of my attempt. (and mind you, this was an honest attempt :o) My verdict: This is the silliest kaleidoscope drawing I have ever seen! (not to mention, it hurts your eyes just looking at it!!) But - it was oh so fun and very relaxing to do! It was fun just going for it! Not worrying what the outcome was going to be!
You will have to check out what real kaleidoscope drawings look like over at Samara's blog. I'm tellin' ya ... they are beautiful.
See you for Day #28.
Happy Painting! Cheers! and ... Break a Bristle.
