I have mentioned a few times the inspiration I have gotten from Tammy’s class in 21 Secrets.
What I love in a workshop and what I got from this workshop is that place where it fires off synapses all over your brain and you are completely captivated and obsessed.
During the class I did this page, not in colours that normally draw me, but while I was working on another page I saw river stones and thought how cool the technique would be in those stone like colours.
I was right. The page without all the background painted in captivated me.
I was in love.
The page ended up like this…
Here is a close up…
More than what this page ended up as, is the inspiration it began. Since this page I have been obsessed by rocks. Different ideas, layouts, colours. I have a bowl of rocks on my table top. My sketchbook is filling up.
Sometimes we find something that completely juices us up, and excites us. Throws ideas at us faster than we can get down. That is where I am now with stones, and I am just trying to hang on.
Tomorrow I will share some of my sketchbook pages.
