Today was a great day for a lighthearted approach and just goofing around with color and composition. If you’re stuck in a rut or just want a quick jumpstart in your creativity, I recommend this online workshop by Laura Horn Art called “Minimal Magic” .
These little guys are 8x8 in. mixed media pieces on 300 lb. watercolor paper. I chose a limited palette of raw sienna, payne’s gray and white acrylic paint, inks, white paint pens and water soluble graphite. I added a few recurring elements inspired by my new island home: oval rock shapes, feather and shell imagery. Such fun and now I feel ready to take on the world!
