Creative Every Day Blog. I have been wanting to explore and widen and deepen the few techniques I pull from and work on a bit larger platform than my small journals, so I felt this challenge would push me to do that.
Today I started with a left-handed (non-dominant) random drawing. It made me laugh that at the end I could see a swan in this mess, and not only a swan but one in Boston's Public Garden as well. Random drawing seems to be a great way for me to warm up creatively, although I find it a bit tedious and I feel like I'm in 2nd grade. The collage Somewhere came next and I just concentrated on filling the page with images. Not really thinking about anything specific -- I just want to see what emerges from my unconscious. Although it's interesting that I was pulled toward golds, coppers, and rust. Then I added blue iridescent chalk and oil pastels. Something is happening!
