I am participating in Tammy’s Link Love over at Daisy Yellow where she is encouraging everyone to share the love and link up to some inspiration juciness or things we just plain love during the month of April. Then we can join her linky sign up thing, and go check out some new to us links and sometimes fond remembrances while getting to know some new people and discover what inspires them. A proper little inspirational love fest!! :)
She even made a badge!! :)
Here is last week’s link love from me if you missed it.
My first bit of link love this week is going to a free class called Finding your Muse that Alisa Burke set up to encourage people to find inspiration in their own lives. She takes you through different things she finds inspiring and then takes you through her process so you can see how the inspiration was used to become a final project.
Julie Prichard is the most amazing art teacher and I love her work. Her first layer love class was the first online class I ever took, and she is such a professional teacher. She has a policy of getting back to you quick smart, her videos and pdfs etc are of the highest quality, and she delivers exactly what she says she will and then some in my experience. You can find out about her classes here. And this latest work she has put on her blog is stunning. I loved it when I saw it the other day. Her work has so many layers and textures and I am drawn to her palette. A lot of urban grungy goodness going on.
This address by Neil Gaiman, is really inspirational and full of good advice for all of us, in all situations I think. I imagine that there is something most people could take from it.
Tammy’s art journal resource is a well-known wonder for the fullness and complete information it contains, but Tammy also has some other wonders on the site. Her drawing inspiration posts were one of the first things I did when I began this creative journey and I found them very helpful. As seen here, here, here and here.
My last link love for today is Wyanne. I love her watercolour work, and she is such a generous teacher. Her blog can be found here. Look at this post at her elephants (including her super big one), I also found the post really inspiring. I also completely adore her youtube videos which can be found here.
Her use of colour and painting style just inspires me every time I see one of her videos. She paints without rules and with such freedom and abandon. As a bonus I really like Mindy Gledhill whose music Wyanne plays in this video as well!! :)
