Another cold and blustery day here, and the water in the Rhine is still rising!
Hope things soon get back to normal.
My inspiration for today's piece at Art Journal Journey is again from Mondrian. I looked at some of his works which are not so bright and colourful as those in primary colours, and tried to make something similar. After giving my paper (A3) a coat of Gesso, I used a stencil from CWS to draw the shapes, which I coloured in using felt pens. I thought this would be quick and easy, but drawing all those tiny squares was not something for someone with so little patience! Perhaps I should have used a smaller page this time! I wrote 2 quotes of Mondrian around the edges.
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is Diva. I'm not quite sure that this lady is a diva, but she seems to be going in the right direction. I used corrugated card for the background, painted with gesso and edged with molten Utee gold. The image is from a Gecko Galz collage sheet. I used some fabric, flowers and fibres as embellishments. I used the white roses because my Great Auntie Fanny once told me that Divas were ladies who wore lovely dresses and always go bouquets of white roses....
The water in the Rhine is getting higher and higher, and lots of parts of the shore and meadows have been flooded.
The geese and ducks are enjoying their new playgrounds
The trees have all got wet feet
The jetty is almost on a level with the towpath, so I'm hoping the waters will start receding.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
