Finally I am all caught up with Documented Life Project prompts! This week was the last under the umbrella theme of ephemera. The prompts were “real life” and “at this moment”. I decided to utilise the latter phrase as an opportunity to practise working more intuitively.
Ephemera lends itself to collage so – without putting much thought into it – I grabbed at some bits and pieces that were on my art table (AKA my kitchen table). Happily, I have been working in blue colour schemes a lot lately so it was easy to create a uniform palette on the page. Once all the scraps and postage stamps were glued down, I used ink and wash to paint a female face on top of the collage, again not giving myself any time to get caught up inside my head and work more intuitively.
Done and dusted in no time at all and all caught up on DLP prompts. Phew.
