This week I really wanted to challenge myself to work outside of my comfort zone. We all become comfortable with what we have done over and over again.
Deciding to paint in a different style was at first very scary. I felt unsure of myself and of my creativity.
My self imposed challenge entailed using all the colours in my paint box, applying every colour at least once on the canvas. I didn’t want to mix colours on the palette, but use them straight out of the tubes.
Here are the colours I had to work with:
Finishing the work was really rewarding – I felt very happy with the outcome.
This week I participated in the One-word-challenge again; you can have a look at my entry here: The art of being carefree .
I also painted a “pop art” inspired piece called “eclipse”.
Stay posted for more art learning next week!
