Next I worked in my art journal (haven't done that for a few days) and worked in red again. The InTheSun prompts for this week are about the senses......Monday is all about sight. I started my page with a base of red tissue paper, stenciled over that, painted (acrylic) over that, then added my words - all my favorite red summer sights!
The second page for InTheSun is about the sense of touch and to make a very textural page. I poured on gesso and marked it with a wide comb, waited for it to dry (and waited!), added a piece of screen, some puzzle pieces, added red paint and a short list of things I touch/feel in the summer.
Summer of Color is all about red (obviously) so I really wanted to play in as much as possible. To see even more great RED stuff or more journal pages, visit Summer of Color and the InTheSun flickr page.
(edited to add) I took a photo of our newly blooming dahlia and did a little experimenting with moving the camera as I took the photo. I ended up with this great abstract. In red! I'm thinking it will be a great base to experiment on further.
