☆ A Some What Successful Experiment [Friday Art]
I worry that an idea won't work + because the idea is just perfect in my head I don't want to spoil that perfect image by the reality.
That's a really sad statement.
While on my wee break I went through my dreams + goals that I made over the new year and I was really surprised to see that I could check off many of these goals (Yah Me!!) but there was one underlined so it would jump out of the page.
'Take more risks in my art'
And I hadn't done this.
So I went back to my note book full of crazy art ideas and picked one that seemed accomplishable, that if I spent very little time + the end was not what I wanted it would matter + that would be fun if it worked.
I picked one.
I wanted to paint a picture of a girl hidden by a veil. I wanted to paint the veil so that you could still see the emotion on the face, and I didn't want it to be technically difficult. And then I thought to get the texture I wanted maybe bubble wrap would work.
Well not really. Not like I had thought.
But it did give me a guideline + it did work out in the end + it was fun
So it was some what successful experiment.
And while I know this was a really safe risk, I needed to do a safe one first + I think I needed this to give me the kick to try a few more. Eventually you may see me take a really wild one!
Have you taken a risk creatively lately? I would love to hear how you kick yourself out there.
