365 /3 continues

I'm happily working along in the Jane Davies 100 Drawings class and learning lots.  That's probably going to be the bulk of my 365 project work for the duration of the class since each lesson takes such a time commitment. My other commitment to myself is to continue the Documented Life project.  You can see it here as well as on instagram (#dlp2015).

#15 - DLP - prompt is to use gesso to cover a blank page - I chose to use my black and fill in (to reinforce!) some of my goals for this year

#16-18 - lesson 2 of Jane's class....continuing instruction in the use of line and layers.  She shares many of these techniques with quick videos on her blog - and her layering tips are so very helpful.  I made a dozen paintings - here are my 6 faves though I don't necessarily love them all..... (all done on 9x12 80# Blick cheap drawing paper using acrylic paint and various black marking tools)

Though the 2 above started life as verticals, they soon pulled me to horizontal.

The one on the right is my fave of the dozen I painted.  I feel like it's the most successful use of layering and line, interesting without being boring or too busy.

I think both of these have possibilities and I may rework them a bit to see if I can pull something more finished from them.

That brings me up to date for now.......hope you find time to make this a creative week!

    You've got a full year with these two projects. Looks like you are exploring alot which is great. Loving your work as always my friend. xox

  3. Isn't it fun (AND very time-consuming)!!! You are really throwing yourself into this project boots'n'all.
    Love what you are doing.

  4. I've already signed up for the September offering of this class since this one sold out so quickly.
    It will be fun to watch you work your way through it - you're off to a great start!


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
