Using magazine inspiration
The Bathing Suit
Acrylics and Ink
I have to say....I love these two pages! Cutting images out of magazines eliminates wasting time trying to "think of what am I going to paint today." So it was between the bathing suit and the shoe. I love them both and probably could have painted the shoe on the left page, but then I wouldn't have a place to put the inspiration pieces.
The suit was fun to do. I debated what to do with the background....I could have painted a seascape but I wanted the bright colors of the bathing suit to stand out so I decided to use my black ink pen and drew bubbles of all different sizes. I love the overall effect.
For the inspiration page, I did add color to the page rather than just glue the shoe and the bathing suit to a plain page. And, I wrote about the art that I created. I think you can learn a lot about painting something from a photograph.
