In January I made the bold statement that I was going to make something arty every week. I haven’t done too badly, I have picked up the pencils or the paint or the weaving and managed to make something most weeks.
They aren’t all pretty, but they are all mine and inspired by this board over on Pinterest. Here are a few of my attempts.
Below is the beginnings of this idea.
I photocopied the image above and then I photographed it uploaded the photo, made it black and white in photoshop and tweaked the contrast etc. Here is what it looks like at the moment.
Not sure I like enough to make it into a canvas but I loved the process of getting it to this point. Might try another one.
And lets finish on a truly comic moment. Here is my version of the collage pooch I have pinned on my board. I tried to make it look like Buddy…….
Gav laughed with raucous hilarity at my attempt and said it looked like the rabbit from Donnie Darko. If you haven’t seen the film just google it and you’ll see what he means. I actually quite liked my collage Buddy but will be trying harder next time…..
So not too bad at all, I’m having a go and that makes me happy.
