Playing with Landscapes

landscapeJuly’s True Free Spirit assignment was a landscape.  I’m usually much more into people and faces, even in my photography.  But, in the spirit of trying something new and stretching my art skills, I went ahead and gave it a go.  Meh.  Not my favorite subject or my favorite piece of art.  I used tissue paper collage, acrylics, and water soluble pastels.

After completing this, I figured it would probably be the last landscape painting I’d do.  But this morning I started experimenting with some of my old gelli plate backgrounds and dyed paper towels I had lying around in my art stash.  This is a work in progress, but so far it qualifies as a landscape, and much more “Holly style” I think.  I’m still waiting to see what might emerge between the trees.  Maybe a person?  A cat?  LOL.  A person AND a cat?  No idea.  More to come on this one.

  1. Glad to see you’re trying it all. Never know what will set you on fire. I love the right hand side of the first one and the second is definitely your whimsical style……….I’d be hard pressed to choose a favorite. (: xxoo
