I was actually planning to take a proper break from words..reading writing both..
but turns out that doesn’t work for me. this place has an undeniable magnetic force that I can’t fight.
so i sort of kept diverting my mind. what else than doing a little research on what you love to do??
so I watched video about expressionism (that’s my kind of art) and masterpieces and different techniques artists used.
now I have never properly studies arts so it’s a good start to learn.
one thing I realize again and again it’s all about layering. layering thin layers of colors give depth and dimension.
saved a few reference images too of the famous art works.. it helps you understand color palettes of certain era.
I watched videos about different art movements to find out maybe there’s something else too that I can call my form of art.
There are differences between all of them like types of strokes, colors themes, the idea of artists behind the whole movement, and I always came back to expressionism.
Expressionism shouts, growls, cries and laughs or just stares into the soul..haunting you..captivating you..I am natural drawn to it.
Edvard Munch’s “scream” is an example that says it all..
then I went on to watch few tutorials of drawings with white on black. I find it frightening every time as its hard to correct. I came across this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHn_SVpGlJc ..and gave it a try..
here is the result..
I kinda like it..
I will close with this Pablo Picasso quote
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
And let me add another quote, this one by Albert Camus, as I have to fit today’s prompt somewhere..
A Guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.
