YEAH IT'S FRIDAY ♥
The day of the week we all get to share and enjoy wondrous art ♥♥♥♥
It's been a low energy week here....over worked last weekend so paid for it the first part of the week and just been taking it slow and easy the rest of the week .
I got a couple of Mandala's done this week...
I used markers of various type on this and really like it. The down side is that I have serious bleed through on the back side. ..
I knew this would happen so I was careful to use a page that didn't have anything on the back side yet. A quick coat of white gesso will fix the page so that it is usable and no art was sacrificed :)
For Art Journal Journey this month we have "Inspired by the Masters" as our challenge. I chose Monet for this page.
I used water soluble oil pastels and gesso to create this page. The original below was done in oils..
I really enjoyed creating this page. Monet has always been one of my favorites and I was blessed with the opportunity to see his work several years ago at the St. Louis Art Museum. My daughter was very young ...around 5 years or maybe younger at the time... I can remember her looking at one of the large Hay Stack paintings and her saying she wants to paint like that. She did grow up to be an artist so the trip was worth while in many respects.
Monet still remains one her most favorite artist.
