Art Lesson No. 3 - Do Something Unexpected
Doing the same thing over and over again can dry up your creative juices.
Today, why not try something you haven't done or thought of before. Not only will it give you new perspective about your work, but you'll discover a whole new avenue towards your own ingenuity.
This is what I did. Read on.
'Drenched Rose'. Detail.
"The last rose in my vase.
First, I drew it with watercolor pencils, then brushed it a little bit. Lastly, with much courage, I soaked it in a basin of cold water. Yes, for two hours.
Unconventional you'll say. But that's me. I love pushing the limits of the medium.
And creating something unique."
Pardon the little smudges around, the water did that. I call it natural artistic effect, giving it the antique, shabby-chic look.
Ready to try it? Post comments if you have questions about this article or anything about art, I'll do my best to answer it.
