I have very happy news to share with you all - I will be designing for Colourarte for the next few months! Here is my very first project with a tutorial on the colourarte blog.
|Altered paintbrush using Colourarte primary elements|
Off late, Ive been wanting to make projects with more meaning than just aesthetic appeal and so here is the story behind this canvas. There was a time when I would find inspiration in a lot of things around me and painted everyday. Along the way life happened (thread embedded in the texture paste) and I lost that mojo. This piece is a reminder to not given up and strive to find that part of me again (represented by the gears and clocks) , to create (paintbrush) and stay true to my inspiration (the markings on the butterfly)
Its amazing the different shades of colour that can be made with just 4 pigments depending on what medium you mix it with. The patina colour on the gears and the blue butterfly are made with same pigment - Autumn skies.
I hope you take a few minutes to read the tutorial on the Colourarte blog and leave me your comments.
Happy long weekend NSWers
