My post is rather later in the day than usual, as I was feeling really bad
last night, and just needed to get to bed asap. I had a long and deep
sleep and woke up feeling oodles better today, for which
I am most thankful.
My project today is for Art Journal Journey, Inspired by the masters. The challenge ends on Saturday, so hope some more of you will be inspired by then!
Although on Sunday there will be a new challenge!)
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin, and to Moo Mania and More, masculine.
I used an A3 brush wipe sheet for the background - I always have a lot of those floating around my kitchen! I drew the portrait of Armand Roulin from Van Gogh onto paper, painted it with water colours and pastel chalks, and glued it to the background. I added some shading and text round the head. Van Gogh painted many portraits of the family Roulin while he was in Arles, and I will probably be trying to do some others sooner or later. The quote, 'Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul' is from Vincent Van Gogh.
The sky was very cloudy early this morning, with just a few patches where the light showed through.
I love seeing the twinkling lights of airport city in the distance.
The crow, hawk and a magpie had a another slanging match this morning - this time the hawk won.
Later on he was back in another tree, looked right, left and then swooped off - I think he spotted his lunch!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
