Today in P&D we had to take a piece of or existing art work on cardboard and re work it…
Keeping in mind artists that we have looked at recently like Howard Hodgkin and Gillian Ayers.
I went down more of the Hodgkin route and painted with my feelings and thoughts!
There’s a few things you can’t see on here that are dangling off the piece, on the left the ball of cotton wool wrapped up in colourful thread I thought looked like a rainbow coming out of and cloud and the sting hangs waaaaaaaay down past my painting.
On the right the at the bottom of the peeping Chinese lantern is a baby Chinese lantern hanging off the end connected by embroidery thread!
All the paint is acrylic and I just a fine liner to draw on my usual smiley faces 😬
