The Woods are Dark and Dangerous

🌳🌛 HI DARLINGS! VERY OFTEN WE CAN APPRECIATE A GOOD WORK THROUGH THE QUALITY OF ITS BACKGROUND.

Owlstation

owlstation illustration_the woods are dark and dangerous_2020I’ve been making more time to play in my sketchbook lately and draw things just for fun. Little, one off experiments based on references or prompts that I find particularly enticing and exciting. Raiding my Pinterest boards for images that have inspired me and then getting my art materials out to see what feels right.

Whilst not all of these experiments result in images I’m pleased with (aka ready to share on Instagram!) they’ve definitely been helping me develop my illustration skills and learn more about the mediums I work with. I was pleased with how this Crayola and pencil study turned out though…I added the owl separately after finishing the woodland background, sticking him on top collage style. I couldn’t resist adding a bit of typography underneath to encourage the story that was forming in my head!

sparta 2

Greetings trained monkeys. Sparta Puss here. I’ve managed to get my paws on the pooter box while my hairless apes are preparing themselves for something called a Zoom Quiz. Idiots. I thought you’d like to see me. I’m posing with something called a buk. It is a special buk that the she-monkey pokes with a stick with dirt in it. She makes a mess then turns to me and says, “See Sparta. This is you”. She’s an idiot. But she gives me Dreamies. So I won’t trip her up on the stairs…………….yet…………………..

Caravaggio in Mexico City

👀 HELLO BEAUTIES! CARAVAGGIO WORKS ALWAYS ARE MAGNIFICIENT. THANKS TO MELANIE FOR HER REMINDING AND HER GREAT SKETCH.

Melanie Franz

I went to a Caravaggio exhibition at the Museo Nacional de Artes in Mexico City back in spring 2018.

I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed (maybe also my fault as I did not look at the information properly), but they only had one painting by Caravaggio. The rest of the exhibit was about him in form of a multimedia show and artworks by other artists that got inspired by him.

Nevertheless, I learned a lot about his style and especially his use of light and shadow. The museum in general was definitely worth a visit, as it is in a stunning building. Especially the permanent exhibition was great. That´s where I spotted the little horses from yesterday.

Below my impression of the only painting by Caravaggio at the exhibition.

I BISOGNI DELL’ARTISTA

🎨🇮🇹 HI LOVELIES ! ‘THE NEEDS OF THE ARTIST’. IT IS WORTH TRANSLATING THE TEXT OF THIS POST. .

I tesori di Amleta

I bisogni di un artista sono diversi da tutti quelli degli altri. Certo un artista mangia, dorme, va in bagno. Può avere delle cose e delle persone a cui tiene molto. Può avere interessi e hobby. Ma una cosa lo distingue profondamente da tutte le altre persone: il bisogno di stimoli. Un artista alimenta la propria arte da se stesso e da ciò che vede, conosce e sperimenta. Gli stimoli visivi, mentali, empirici sono profondamente necessari ad ogni artista perchè in mancanza di questi la sua linfa creativa si prosciuga. Infatti se un artista non è messo nelle condizioni di poter avere questi stimoli, che soddisfano i suoi bisogni, egli andrà spegnendosi lentamente. La sua fantasia, non venendo alimentata, diventerà arida e stenterà a dargli l’input per la creazione artistica. Così come un animale va morendo nei suoi istinti, se messo dentro una gabbia, un artista muore nella sua vita…

Art in the Time of Coronavirus, or, “The Big Tree”

🌳💚🌳 HELLO SISTERS! IN MY OPINION A BURNED TREE IS LIKE A WOUNDED FRIEND. THIS IS A WONDERFUL WORK.

suzeart

AnimationDay01-28It will not surprise you to hear I made myself a massive, hunker-down, shelter-in-place project, now nearly three-quarters completed.

In January I received the people’s choice award at a local juried show. One option for the award is an exhibit on a large wall above the checkout counter at a nearby public library. Before the lockdown went into effect, I made it over there to check out the space. One side of the wall is 24 feet wide, with about 6 feet of vertical space. There is also a smaller wall on the other side of a central doorway.

I’ve always meant to try one of my burned tree paintings on the lengthwise axis of a roll of watercolor paper — but been intimidated by the time commitment required. With my beloved wilderness off-limits, I knew I needed something demanding to do.

When completed it will be 22 feet long…

he doesn’t want me
i fall apart
i put myself
back
together again…
the record spins
round
i recover
i always
recover
until the song plays
again.

A conversation with an ODALISQUE

🎨 HI SISTERS! FOR A FEW YEARS, THAT I EXCHANGE FOLLOW-UP WITH DIEVCA BLOG. I THINK TODAY’S POST IS SPLENDID AND WONDERFUL. ENJOY!

dievca

Lying on the bed, with the sun coming through the windows — dievca laps up the Sun’s energy like a cat absorbing Vitamin D. dievca could be on her back, her side, her belly — in whatever position Master has finished with her.

Master loves to see His dievca in this somnolent state and will watch her from afar for a few moments before coming back to bed and pulling her in for aftercare.

 Master calls dievca His ‘odalisque’.

Definition of ODALISQUE
