"Countdown" by yuumei on DeviantArt While many of us enjoy the luxury of watching TV on our couch with a cold can of soda or beer, the ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. Polar bears that need the ice to hunt and survive are drowning or starving; sometimes forced to search through dumpsters to survive.
I fancied starting with a bit of Braque, cos I dig a bit of that Georges Braque - Violin and Palette (1909). A cubist painting. Cubist painting abandoned the tradition of perspective drawing and displayed many views of a subject at one time.
I like this sketchbook due to the dark colours in the background and the technique used to do this. The background is completely filled using paint in layers. The dark browns and reds make a background for the writtten work - these colours are roughly joined with cool colours which make a detailed water and boat scene. I like the way the writing becomes part of he painting. . The overall effect is breathtaking.
Composition development - painting of shells- This could be a COOL way to incorporate a textural element into an abstract artwork- use the crinkled tissue with pastel rubbed across the top for the shell- watercolor for the abstract lines
