This week in art

This week I did another project in the Paper to Painting Workshop with Roben-Marie Smith, this time digitally. I started with a collage of painted papers, and the rest is done digitally.

Digital "mixed media" painting


On YouTube, you can find several artists who share how to draw various patterns. I thought I would share some of the videos that feature my patterns. It's always fun to see how other people use the patterns I created. If you want to see the step-outs for all my patterns, click here.

This is my pattern Carrés.

This week in art

This week, I have been taking an online class called Paper to Painting Workshop with Roben-Marie Smith. Here are some of the steps in my first project. You can click the images for a larger view.

First step: foundation collage.

Paper to Painting 1

Second step, add some paint, stamping, doodling.

Paper to Painting 2

More paint.

Paper to Painting 3

Cut up the sheet and glue onto three canvas boards.

Paper to Painting 4

Then I decided on how to orient the canvases into a triptych, and I drew a line with some curlicues to tie the three together.

Paper to Painting 5

And now, I begin a second one with this collage.

Paper to Painting 6
