Yesterday went by quicker than I can think, where does the time go?
For 'Inspired by the Masters' at Art Journal Journey I have once again been inspired by Modigliani. His very expressive portraits have really got me in their clutches just now! I used an A3 brush-wipe, smear, spray and drip page for the background. The page was rather crinkled, as it had been squashed under something else, so I ironed it. Now I have the good feeling that I really did some ironing this week! I drew the portrait onto paper, painted it with water-colours and pastels, fussy cut it and glued it to the background. I added some more pastels round the head to make it blend better with the background. I love the quote of Modigliani that I have used here. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
This morning started off well:
This blackbird is always the first in the queue for breakfast:
The hawk was dosing in the tree:
Met this thrush down by the river:
The water is wide and getting wider:
I'm glad I'm not standing by the pole taking my pictures:
And I love this lamp in the middle of the trees:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
