It’s week twelve! The end of my third month of this project is coming to a close. I can’t think of much that I’ve stuck with for that long. I guess it goes to show just how incredibly pumped I am about this. I still feel so much excitement and passion toward this. The biggest change I have noticed so far is the level at which I am gathering INSPIRATION. And, to me, being inspired is such a big part of creating art. It is THE reason I create art. Everyday, sometimes multiple times a day I am jotting something down in Evernote, a picture, a sketch, an idea. I even bought a very tiny sketchbook, a tiny pen, and the most adorably tiny colored pencil set (seriously its so itty bitty) to have with me always when an idea strikes. Now, I’ve never been a stranger to gathering inspiration. I’ve always been pretty active on Pinterest, finding things that inspire me and adding them to my curated pin boards. The difference is generating my own ideas, lots of them. The difference is now I am applying that inspiration and creating something with it. And that is a HUGE difference.
This past week I played around a lot with color schemes. I took some of my favorite color combos and made them into abstracts, something that I don’t do too often. There were even more that I didn’t post, but it was a very good exercise. It showed me that even a group of colors I love together can look BAD if you don’t use them well! Hence why I didn’t post them, hehe. I really love the two sunny-rainy abstracts. Inspiration this week also came from a furniture ad, a happy accident and a beach blanket.
