I’ve enjoyed providing each week a “Wednesday Warm Up,”— a day of usually quick drawing, inking, brushing as warm up to our serious art. I’ve been sharing a strategy to try each Wednesday using the iPad app ProCreate. Lately, I’ve change it up a bit for a few Wednesday Wrap Up— a wrap up of my project tips for the past week or something I’ve learned that may also help others with the same #warmup4art hashtag.
As my readers know, I illustrate daily art prompts with my CLmooc friends. This month I’m choosing prompts from Lisa Bardot’s #makingarteveryday. The prompts this week are to reflect on our own art journey in a journal [get your own from Lisa here].
So, I’ve been behind, so this is late, but now I’ve completed even tomorrow’s, so enjoy this gallery of my journal responses to learn about this amazing journey. It’s a reflection on my growth as an artist and my expectations to continue learning with my new artist friends and my old CLmooc friends. Thank you all for your inspiration.
Goals, Journey, Roots Presentation
I hope you also enjoy my goals, journey, and roots presentation:
So, that wraps up this Wednesday Wrap Up. As we develop our skills every day we choose to make art every day, and stretch ourselves with strategies that match the style and effect of our goals. Perhaps you have a strategy or process for working with the lighter colors that you could share. Comments are welcome!
Thanks to Lisa Bardot for her resources and this journal. Check out Lisa Bardot for inspiration on her Instagram, YouTube channel, prompts, and website. Also, just click the Artist Gems category on my blog for other teachers and artists that might inspire you. I’ve met plenty in my online digital journey, and Lisa is but one.
And check out the Artist Teachers slide in my presentation where I thank and link to other artist teachers — here’s the list, and, of course, there are more:
By learning from other artists, we build our confidence and learn to adapt and adjust without fear of being perfect— just make art every day!
