This is my latest ‘a piece of work of the day’ which hasn’t been done in a while.
There is no title, or, I’d name it ‘Mind mirroring’.
I have been a bit suffering from my psoriasis that had been reacting so hard on my both hands since this year. I could not find what prompted me to get, but my hands got totally ugly in look, depressed me in heart, burned me in feel as they were inflammatory, hysterically (yes it is!) itchy, easy to break, and I could not sleep well.
I know it was only excuse but that kept me away from drawing because I could not focus on drawing enough and my epidermis became extremely thin and fragile once I got such a reaction. I was suffering from manipulating my fingers to do something with.
Anyway, so my hands needed intensive care and I had to have observing myself in the closest manner. And it actually inspired me to draw something like below for the first time.
I am very good at driving my delusion to expand, and it urged me to express something like ‘hands are mirroring your mind’ kind of things more or less.
I had rarely drawn hand(s), especially with pastels, and I was not done well this time hence, but I found it fun to do somehow and it is now added to my ‘to draw’ list for more try. 🙂
The drawing work for the second piece has been done, and my impulse eagerness for drawing works to be done is settling down for now. Well, this is sequel blog from the previous one. 🙂
It was a bit experimental work to be done for me, but I find that the work has a hint of frangipani behind the colouring, likely because frangipani flowers that I have with me which I had taken some of them seen as fallen on the ground.
And I made a face with all of the pieces placed beside me while I was working. 🙂
Since a couple of days ago, a sort of image flashed in my head and I urged to push it out. So today was a kind of perfect day for it. Outside was fair which was ok for a Sunday, but it was not that good because of that heavy wind blown all day and which annoyed me enough to get out.
…Ok, ‘something’ in my head was got out.
Not sure if the outcome was really after as I had imagined.
Not sure where this piece could mark as complete or could develop further.
The below is a snapshot of my work in progress.
A complete work has been uploaded on Facebook and Instagram, so it will be more than appreciated if you could take additional seconds to quickly peek in!
I haven’t touched any drawing tools after my last pastel workshop held on 17th of December and I just wanted to draw something, just something. 🙂
This was drawn ad-hoc, that I did not have any idea when started drawing. This is the simply how it ended. I seem want to draw something about a cold winter and a warm and bright spring season followed by. Here where I am living at moment is in the middle of summer season but I have friends who are in northern hemisphere too, and many of which are covered with snow at moment. They miss and wish the warm and bright spring season to come already.
Tone of this image is a little plain, but I think I managed to express about winter that is gradually moving away and spring season that is coming to closer to you.
Anyway, my first work of 2018 is done, I feel so good. 🙂
I have had a second workshop of the year last night.
Wow, my creative side is getting more active at the time of 2017 is coming to end! I found this great as it is being a good warm-up for making my 2018 art projects run with fair start. next year.
I feel that I am back. Yes, I feel that my energy is coming back really.
I wasn’t able to open a sketch book to draw something until sometime three or four months ago. I didn’t want to set my pastels to draw. I wasn’t excited at such a huge variety of colour charts that lined up in front me and pick up the best colour suiting my mood / vibration at the time to express.
Now I feel that I am back finally.
Workshop is always fun and leaves me something to learn which is great. It is fun because even if participants followed my sample work at the beginning, the drawing motion drove them to tap to get their imagination and inspiration awaken and always ended up their unique beautiful piece. It inspires me more to go.
A snapshot of my pastel drawing work I was done yesterday. The image came to back of my head last week when I smelled at a custom blend essential oil for aroma therapy.
The oil called ‘Ho’oponopono’.
Ancient Hawaiian exercises the practice of forgiveness / reconciliation.
The scent was certainly brought me a relaxed and gentle feeling. 🙂
Well, to extend a bit about my pastel technique, it was my first time to draw turtles with pastel (or almost with anything to draw). I would like to repeat a couple of more to draw about them better. 😉
Another pastel work with festive touch was drawn on a blank card for friends of a couple. I drew ornaments again which I had done last time in blue with background. Basically it is same as last time except background colour as I chose pink to make the tone warmer.
