This is primarily a journal piece done on 12" x 18' art paper. There is a lot of layering in this piece, and it reminds me of the old RCA channel sign-off icon. The way this turned out, is very different from the lesson which was actually to cover everything written below it, and I like the translucence that hints at the journaling below and uses the highly decorated and colorful background to generate a sense of energy with the bands of white paint and the yellow tentacles. I like this alot and would never have done something like it without the lesson prompt!I also used many Copic markers that I don't often work with and that was neat too.
This piece was created through a class offered by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts Ltd. For more information, visit this link: www.willowing.org.
