My art journals are for my own personal use. I may copy pictures from books, or blogs or anything that catches my eye. They are not for any other reason than for me to practice and learn to create. Its a way of getting ideas. I like some, and not others but either way its fun to do. I think I am on my 6th journal. I do a lot of fairies. I also only do a rough sketch and paint it, I don't do a real painting with background etc. That is for later.
I like to do wildlife too
I also like to do cartoonish faces..........not supposed to be lifelike.......I prefer that, but that is not the idea just yet.
I like to look for phrases to go with the picture. Maybe later this year I will begin a new book and actually do some proper work with a poem or something to illustrate it.
Simple, trying to get some motion in the picture
Trust me they look better in the journal because they are not enlarged.
The colour never shows right in a photo........
I think some I could make a picture from, but most are a no go
Ah well..they look better in the book. I think this will be my last journal post. I had better do something real. Something better or everyone will think this is what I do. LOL.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
