I took a completely left field approach to this week’s Documented Life Project prompts. One prompt was to use acrylic paint and the other prompt was the song lyric “cry me a river”. I thought about crying, about emotional upset, and then I thought about rivers and streams. Nothing inspired me. Then I thought more broadly about things that make me cry and I thought of onions. I have not drawn a still life for many years and I have not painted a still life for even longer so this seemed like the perfect time to have a quick practice in my art journal. I gave myself ten minutes and this was the result. I think I need to practice my still life skills.
