Move Over Picasso


First experiment with tempera and brush.  Interestingly, the red/yellow was done one day, and the next morning Young Sprout went to the art supplies before breakfast and got busy layering the green on top.

I was reminded of his uncle, Senior Sprout, who was blown away by his first experience of painting.  He just kept going and going, with one colour after another until the final result was gray, and the paper was so wet it basically disintegrated.  Soon after that, he found a piece of driftwood which he decorated with markers, working on it every morning before breakfast and finally presenting me with “a statue.”  Today his favorite hobby is painting Warhammer figurines.

This may be genetic, I’ll be posting process photos of my newest project in Textisle.  Picasso doesn’t have to move over but maybe I should!

Egyptian-style art

The wedjat a.k.a. eye of Horus or eye of Ra is one of the most recognized symbols from ancient Egypt.

Working on ideas for a possible fibre art piece I was colouring this in different ways to see the effects, with help from Young Sprout.  Then he drew his own, which is a pretty respectable attempt, definitely one for the portfolio.
