I have just discovered that I have not taken photos of the start of this page but started half way through, oh well, you will get the idea. First I started by covering the entire page with Gesso. Then on the left side I used acrylic paints and painted using black and white paint to establish a grey and colourless storm background. Then on the right side I used blue acrylic to make a more colourful storm/rain scene. I also added a little bit of dylusions ink spray in turquoise to represent the dripping water and stickles turquoise to make it reflective. I then bled some of the colour onto the left side. This part of my thought process was inspired by Lorraine Bell . The pictures start where I decided to draw my dancer freehand on a separate bit of paper cut her out and stick her down on the colour side
Once stuck down, I coloured in my dancer. As I wanted to use colour I used my favourite colour RED, it made sense its the most contrast colour to Blue I had and I wanted my dancer to stand out.
So there you have it, the chaos that is my creative process. I have to say I am rather pleased with this page. It makes a nice change. I am slowly learning to let go my idea that my page has to be professional looking. I just need to let go and enjoy. I am not saying I will be able to do that right away as it is hard to let go my need for a pleasing looking finished article but I will let go more often until I am more comfortable with this process.
Thank you for reading this post. I hope it has been of interest and help to someone. It has certainly helped me :)
