We had another cold and very misty day again, but I still enjoyed
my walks, especially as I saw spring flowers growing - snowdrops, daffodils,
and even a yellow crocus. It makes it easier to believe that spring will be here sooner or later!
For Art Journal Journey I am sharing another Egyptian page showing the god Horus, the son of Osiris and Ra. He is shown as a falcon or a falcon headed man, and he was the god of light and the protector of the children. I used a brushwipe page, (A3) which I sprinkled with Brushos and sprayed with water. I drew lots of hieroglyphics down the sides of the page. Horus was drawn onto a separate sheet, painted with water colours and gel-pens, and highlighted with gold and white. I used metallic pens for the breast plate, and added mica flakes to the sun-crown and breast-plate. He is holding the Ankh, the breath of life in his talons.
Here are some of the visitors who came out of the mist:
I met the raven down at the shore
The heron was busy fishing again
This was the view from my window this morning
The trees disappeared into the mist
I enjoyed walking along the shore, crunching through the shingle
And the cormorant was keeping watch on his pole again.
The feather was one of the objects I spotted along the shore. It was very large, so I'm not sure which bird it came from:
Signs of spring? I hope so
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
