Second week of my challenge - to look at art and create art - alphabetically. Each week I focus on an idea, a style, an artist, a medium and then, create with that as the focus.
I wanted a definition to begin with. "Discovering Canadian Art" by Bennett and Hall had one easy to understand:
I had been out yesterday and this arch in downdown Cambridge struck me as a great piece to sketch.
I started a sketch but I want to take it further this week. I love stone - such textures. to found.
I checked out Van Gogh's site and there were a number of buildings, churches and villages that he painted. Check out his site here.
I attempted a simple church - just for fun.
Drawing buildings has never been a favourite of mine. But exploring the buildings and looking at architecture in others' artwork was a fun exploration.
Exploring arches, old stone ruins, and odd buildings as well as abstract designs was interesting and I hope to do more sketches of these.
Today I worked on a set of ATCs for an undersea swap. Fun cards to make. I find that it is very relaxing to work on these set of cards - 3 for the swap, 1 for the host and 1 or more for me. These were my 2 favourite.
