Day 253. Tissue Bird

11 Sep

After work, I starting rummaging through the cabinets and drawers of the house in search for today’s bird inspiration. What I finally found, was some tissue paper left from a gift bag. I just liked the fragile quality of the transparent tissue. I started off experimenting with some watercolor paints. But what I liked was unexpected. I liked the wet paper edges that started to look like a wet sheet. And that lead me to I take a wet sponge and push this interesting effect across the tissue paper. What started off in one direction, lead me to a surprise ending for today’s Bird-A-Day art. Enjoy.

Day 39. Watercolor Bird

Today I dipped my sable brush into yesterday’s tray of watercolors and started splattering around. Yes, it’s true, yesterday’s tiny watercolor tray bird is a victim of conceptual art. He is but a memory. A moment of silence please. Ok. So I think watercolor painting is more fun when you have no clue what you are doing with it. That’s my story any way. When you just splatter alot! That’s when I know that I’m making something. Which is usually a mess. And if you’re like me, you have to clean up a bit. With today’s Bird-A-Day art, that meant taking some scissors and cutting this bird out of my splattered playground. And it was fun. Not quite as fun as edible art, but then honestly what is? But very close.
