This week’s Art Journal Adventure prompt was “Triangles”. I did not think I was going to find any available art time for my art journal this week. I have been using all of my little rations of art time for keeping up with my Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook and participating in Inktober. However, today I was on a field trip with my preschool class and that meant I managed to get home an hour earlier than usual. I, therefore, sat down with a hot mug of tea and decided to play in my art journal. This week’s prompt allowed me to keep things simple. I just opened up a box of watercolours (ones that belong to my children actually as they happened to be to hand) and started doodling triangles using a medium sized brush. The triangles are very imprecise as a result but, hey, it’s not a geometry lesson and these aren’t architectural or engineering plans so who cares.
I’m guessing you felt relaxed and ready for (almost) anything after doodling this. Great fun!
I did it in the middle of a busy day so it was definitely beneficial that way.
This is really nice. I love the interplay of color and the repeated shape.
Thank you. I would have liked for there to be more bleed between colours but it didn’t work out that way.
Way to use small chunks of time!!! Yea you!!!!!!
I felt like I desperately needed it. My schedule is just ridiculous right now. A few times a week I have to be in more than one place at a time. Actually planned for art time is almost non-existent so that makes me even more determined and focused on grabbing opportunities for short bursts.
Keep it up – and hang in there!
This is so simple, but so lovely! A fun use of color and I like how you work dit around one big triangle. Great job :)))
Thank you very much for your kind comment.
I’d say this is exactly what you needed after another hectic week! There’s something very soothing about the flow of the shapes and the colours you’ve used. This design would look great gracing the front and back inside covers of a sketchbook…
Thanks. Sometimes the process of creating is much more important than the outcome and this was one such example.
