I realize that I don't know anything. I used to have studio space with friends, but that was twenty years ago. There might be new products available now. People in this community are working in such a variety of ways that I'm stunned and inspired.
I've gone from thinking I'd watch the community, to thinking I could do one piece per day, to thinking "Screw it, I'm going to spend October on art."
One of the things I don't know is how to upload photos on LJ, but yesterday I did a sketch with oil pastels and the previous day I did a little picture in colored pencils. Those exercises left me feeling like I want more COLOR.
I want to invest in some materials but I'm not sure what I should be going for. I want something, probably paints, with a rich texture and vibrant colors. I can't use oils because of the drying time. Are there different types of acrylics I should look for? Are there other media that are good for making a mess with vivid colors?
Help me, please! I'm tired of this comfort zone. It's so stuffy in here.
i worked on more ATC's but i didn't complete any.
found a lot of images that i like, i just couldn't get combinations i like.
i feel like it takes me forever to finish just 1 ATC because i agonize over everything.
Made up a still life of black field boots being shined, coffee cups, cigarettes and Aleve and took a photo as my art for today. Photobucket is down. I think I need a bucket dump as Jenn calls it.
