Y2 Art Resolutions is the second year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.
At first, I thought this would turn out to be an elephant. I turned it and turned it. The elephant did not want to be there in its entirety. There was a slight suggestion of a rabbit, but I couldn’t find the ears. I thought I was done with sea creatures, but then the bottom feeders appeared. It seems that the creatures that come either fly through the water or the air.
I have been wondering what it is about fish or the sea that they continue to emerge from these intuitive drawings. This particular exercise is the most detailed. More patterns. More design elements. More time. The combination of and experimentation with marker and watercolor on watercolor paper has been interesting and satisfying. I’m learning more about the interactions and what happens in due and contrast when mixing them.
