A quick 2 minute sketch i just did on Arabic paper i think. As you can see i don’t look very happy – i have to go for jury duty (or to be chosen early today) and I’m not a happy camper – if chosen i have to attend the trial for 15 days. That means that I’d be blogging at night and it would most likely be brief. I’ll know for sure tomorrow.
I struck a pose which i thought would be interesting as a silhouette portrait. I printed the image out on an 8 x 10 piece of paper and then cut out my image with a sharp pair of scissors. I used both the positive and negative images to create a stencil. I used inexpensive fluorescent pink spray paint.
On one piece of paper i scraped two paint colours (acrylic). Then with pencil i wrote words which described me (positive words).
Next i placed the image over top the writing (i used pieces of masking tape to keep image in place. I then spray painted on top. I might keep working on this one and use it as an art journal page.
On this piece of paper i scrapped a bit of paint on and then placed the piece of paper with the image cut out of it on top. Then i sprayed the pink paint over it. This piece obviously needs to be embellished but I’m really pleased with the silhouette look!
Well – that’s it for today! I just might be doing some self-portrait sketches while waiting in the jury room deliberating (or whatever they call it!).
