The 100 Day Project: Day Ten

Tuesday 27 February 2024

Well, we're a tenth of the way through the project today! Well done to anyone who has made it this far too, keep it up! 

I really fancied playing with the warm colours on that MaimeriBlu watercolour dot card that I used back on Day Four, and I thought of a piece of art I saw at the Wave Exhibition at Japan House in Kensington last September.

I didn't do anything as elaborate or beautiful as this lovely piece, nor could I on this particular sketchbook paper, but the essence of the idea was there, and it was the quick, joyful piece of art I needed today. I simply wet a circular area on the paper and dabbed the Green Gold in the centre, followed by a ring of Pyrole Orange and a ring of Quinacridone Lake. I repeated that process, and then when dry (well almost dry, I was impatient, who me? Never!), I drew a stem and leaves, and did some mark making on top of the 'flower' with a Metallic Gold pen.

Nothing to dislike with this one but I'm not quite sure I could class it as abstract. It's no biggy, it's my project and I'll do what I want, lol. I would like to repeat this kind of design on some good watercolour paper and take my time over it, make it really intricate. Maybe one day...

See you tomorrow, loves.
