Hi there, how are you?
What have I been doing this week I hear you ask. Well thanks for asking, this week I have been binge watching Skillshare classes. I received an offer for three months Skillshare for 99 cents. I know you can get two months free in some places but seriously don’t begrudge any one 99 cents for an extra month. I’ve probably already had my moneys worth.
Part way through the binging I realised it would probably make some sense to actually “do” some of the classes. Then I stumbled on a lovely creative soul called Marie-Noëlle Wurm, she is an illustrator and artist. Some of her work is figurative and some abstract. You could type her name into Google for web sites etc: Her classes looked interesting so I tried one.
First lesson get out some art tools and start making marks: I got out my water brush and paints and started to move the brush around and this happened.
There are loads more, some I like some not so much, these are a few of my favourites. It seems to have become a theme.
This is not the sort of thing I would usually paint, I had no idea what would happen as I painted the strokes and no plan so it’s really interesting to see what it all turned into.
The second exercise was to make the marks into something, er.. I sort of pre-empted that one, I’ll move on to the next part soon.
She also has some abstract classes that look interesting so when this one is finished I will try one of those, that’s if I can get my head around the whole abstract thing.
It’s always fun learning new things.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
