I was able to do some art this week but in small doses. Tiredness seems to be my companion this week - as well as school stress (less than a month to Grade 3 EQAO assessments!)
It was week off from ATC creation but I've started a new monthly challenge - a sketch or drawing a day. I enjoyed creating the collages for April but wanted something different for May.
Drawings (3 of my favourites)
May 1 - a watercolour horse, inspired from "Wild Horse Winter", a picture book by T. Honda
May 5 - as this was Kentucky Derby Day I did another horse, this one inspired by Raoul Dufy's "Ascot" painting from 1935
(This would probably count towards a "Messy" page - lol. Just had fun with the abstractness of the watercolour.
"Mess" vs "The Happy Book"
This week I just could not get into "Mess" - I did want to create and play around but nothing really appealed to me from the book (Liz Wright is holding a book club with Keri Smith's book "Mess" - lots of fun!)
Then I remembered "The Happy Book" which I had participated in last year at Jamie Ridler's.
I still had lots to do in it tho - so I did a few pages. Helped with the frustrations and tiredness!
Favourite colour red:
I am enjoying the shortness of the challenges - I don't have to spend a lot of time to have some art fun.
Have a wonderful week!
