I recently took part in an online creative retreat and had loads of fun trying different art materials, exploring different techniques, in a vain attempt to try to find "my style". Well, at the end of the weekend I knew what I'd enjoyed the most but I still don't think I have a particular signature style lol!
Here are the pieces I created, in no particular order!
|My favourite piece, painted with acrylics|
|Faces are not my forte!|
|Mark making using pastels, crayons and ink|
|More mark making, tried callicreative pens - they are water-soluble!|
|Loved doing this, although there's room for improvement - all acrylics|
|Just playing with shape and colour|
|Interesting - this appeared from some random scribbles|
|I love using blocks of colour in an abstract way|
|Mixed media collage - not entirely happy with this, but it was completed in only an hour!|
|My clay floral mandala drawings|
|Painting without thinking - no big idea, just paint what comes - love what I ended up with!|
|I may never finish this, it's a dark piece and I actually felt quite depressed|
about it, which is why it never got further than this
|My clay floral mandala decorations, ready to paint and varnish|
|A left-over sheet of paper which I'd used to remove excess paint from another|
piece. I quite like this and will find a use for it!
So, it was interesting, sometimes intense, and overall a lot of fun. I enjoyed immersing myself for the weekend and feel there are things I can build on from this experience.
Kind comments always welcome!
Thanks for visiting!
Bye for now,
