This week's challenge over at Inspiration Avenue is "art nouveau". As an interior designer I'm very aware of the stylistic influences of art nouveau, but as an artist, it's not really my style. Well, I might be wrong about that.
My first thought about what to create was a woman with the wavy, curvy hair.....but I can't draw and certainly not a person. So, after a little googling, I was reminded of all the floral designs of the era and went more that direction (though now that I look at my piece there's nary a flower in sight).
Drawn in my 8.5x5" notebook, this small drawing was fun and maybe more my style than I thought because I love all the curvy, organic shapes. I used some of the zentangle principles of creating "behind" so that the vines were winding behind and layers were created.
Be sure to visit Inspiration Avenue and see all the other talented artists.
