'Boutique Layout' - 2021

Collage, acrylic, inks and gel print on paper

42 x 30cm

Making my artwork happens in many different ways. Sometimes I have a rough plan. Sometimes I just play and see where the art takes me. I have good days, I have bad days. Then sometimes the artwork just appears with zero effort...

This particular piece started life as a quick ten minute demo in one of my art classes, just to show how I often start with a collage. It was then slid back into my sketchbook... I got it out again months later when I was showing a class how I add acrylic & inks onto my collage work. Once more it was hidden away in my sketchbook. It reappeared months later when I wanted something to experiment with during a gel printing session. Only to be returned to my sketchbook.

I then decided to drag this once more from my sketchbook during a recent Zoom class. Maybe it's time I finally did something with this. Maybe I could actually make something out of all these little demo experiments... And in the end I did nothing. I left it as it was. I listened to people in my class who insisted the artwork was already finished...

So there you go. Artwork with practically zero thought or planning ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’—

It's week number 2 of my summer art classes ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž

Tuesday morning's Mixed Media Class has a spot of figurative drawing/painting.

My Wednesday evening Collage Class has a Kurt Schwitters video and a rather surreal photo to inspire them.

Thursday morning's Portrait Class has someone rather striking, angular and sculptural to tackle.

I'll add my own artwork from these sessions onto this post. Do add your own if you'd like ๐Ÿ™‚

I also still have spaces on all of these Zoom classes, if anyone fancies joining us this week. ยฃ8.00 per session. Just message me if you're keen and I'll let you have all of the relevant info ๐Ÿ’—
