I've noticed when looking at ICAD blog posts where people have grouped their ICADs together that mine area always very diverse. I think it's so neat to see someone else's post and see the cohesiveness of their cards. They might be linked by style or subject or color.
Mine are a jumble of everything and anything. This isn't a bad thing. I am happy to try to push myself to try different things and to me art is creating whatever I'm in the mood for. This week I thought I'd push myself to keep to a theme and since "ocean" was one of the prompts I knew it would be easy enough to stick to it since painting the ocean is one of my favorite subjects.
|Day 43. Acrylic paint.|
|Day 44. Acrylic paint.|
|Day 45. This didn't photograph so well, there is much more texture in person. Watercolor and acrylics.|
|Day 46. An abstract of moonlight on the water. Wax resist with crayon and watercolor.|
|Day 47. This is meant to be the way water refracts in shallow tropical waves. It's not exactly where I want it to be but I think it's very pretty. It's many layers of watercolor, acrylic paint and acrylic ink.|
|Day 48. Wind and Water. Acrylic paint, then watercolor, then Sharpie, more watercolor and acrylic.|
|Day 49. I had to get some doodling in! Acrylic paint, then watercolor splatters, Sharpie doodles.|
All that being said, and having seen my 7 representations of ocean I think it's safe to say that although I stuck to a theme my style is still all over the place.
I have always been trying to figure out what my signature style is.
Most artists in blogland, in the world in general, in history have a style that is if not recognizable, at least consistent. Not so for me. Never so for me. And I have felt lacking for it. But maybe I have gotten it wrong. Maybe I need to embrace my chameleon style. Maybe I should even be proud of it!
