I signed-up for a Camp Pikaland online art course - just before it started on Monday - called Making Your Mark. Excited about stretching my art-making muscles, experiencing an online class and meeting new friends in this Bootcamp.
There are 6 weekly assignments and this week has been a good start. This week's assignment got me looking more closely to nature for inspiration.
This was one of the first photo I took and I finally used it to inspire my first piece of art. I also decided to try a medium I am less familiar with - acrylic on canvas.
Taking into consideration the five elements of colour, texture, light, composition and subject helped me work through the process.
I manage to complete the piece this afternoon.
In terms of technique, I guess I was just muddling through. All the same, I would say that I do find this a pretty interesting piece to look at. The first week of camp has been jolly fun, and my fellow campers are a creative and friendly bunch.
Now to wait for my teachers' critique. And next week's assignment.
