This weeks prompt for Mixed Media Monday is 'Inspirational Words'. I chose 'Blossom'. Even though I'm my own worst critic I felt that 'Blossom' best describes how I feel about my art at the moment. I've been painting and drawing again for the last 8 months or so after a very long break and I have to say I don't think I've ever been as creative as I am now or motivated. Especially since I discovered websites like Mixed Media Monday and Illustration Friday. Having these prompts each week has really got my creative juices flowing and I'm loving it. Although everytime I'm working on something new at the beginning I'm loving it but by the end I'm questioning it and not sure if I like it anymore. Ah well I guess that's normal hey? I created this piece on watercolour paper, with acrylic paint, news paper and ink. I even experimented with using a different tool to put the paint on as I wanted to experiment with texture. So I ended up smoothing the paint on with a flat plastic tool. I think I like this painting it is quite different from my other work and I think I'd like to do more like this.
