Autumn in Abstract

 Hello everyone 

I hope you all had a creative weekend? 

I had a whole Sunday to myself what a treat 
but with so many things on my creative to do list 
I was overwhelmed where to start or what to do... 

Looking through my online courses I noticed a bonus workshop 
had dropped into my Soulful Abstracts course by Laly Mille.. 

This is where Sunday took me. 

Orange is not my colour, you may be shocked by this as my 
Nature wears Orange so much better than I ever could. 

This workshop takes you on a journey facing your fears of 
unconfident colour, introducing it into your artwork alongside 
colours you're more comfortable with which for me are mainly neutral.

Layering unfavoured paper scrap colours, scribbling on shades of 
orange neocolour II's. All blended into the background by finger 
smudging white gesso, random stamping and dark inky drips. 

I call this mixed media piece *Autumn in Abstract*

now I feel the need to create something in purple 😏

Wishing you all a very Creative week 

Hugs Tracey xx

I like the colors and the layout. The texture made the design look wonderful. Well done, Tracey.

This is absolutely fabulous, Tracey, really beautiful. The colour I don't like painting with is green, always have problems there. Laly Mille's work is a great example, I loved her lessons, too! Hugs, Valerie

I have, over the years, warmed to orange but maybe that is just the influence of Halloween! I do love how subtle your orange is on your wonderful abstract piece and the dimension you created is just incredible - you have managed to trick my eyes into thinking it is layered much more than I think it is. I love that. You certainly made good use of your time! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week. Hugs, Anne xxx

Not sure how I missed this, because I'm a HUGE fan of abstract. You did a fabulous job with orange. It may not look good on you, but it sure does on your page. I really, really, really like this one, Tracey. It's perfect and very different for your theme at Art Journal Journey.

Tracey this is gorgeous, I love the knocked back colours and text! Purple sounds like a good choice for a page too! Sorry I've been MIA but Covid has really taken it's tole, so it's really good to be feeling a little better. Take care, Sue xx
