During the month of February 2022 I set myself the challenge of painting 12 square heart artworks, using whatever art supplies I might have on hand, on the most delicious Khadi handmade cotton paper.
Hearts are a bit of a favourite of mine, and they're even more so after this collection!
Follow along and join in!
We've done soooo many 'Demonstration Collections' in the last three years that I've compiled a Collection of 12 'favourites' to inspire you to create in a way that feels good to you, and to remind you of all the guidance that's right here, at your fingertips. Make a little time (from 5 minutes, really!) to get a little bit Art Fit, and feel wonderful for it.
I love something to be beautiful AND useful and have painted on things, as gifts, for years. For recent gifts I have documented the process, and in this Collection you learn my reasoning for choosing certain subjects, and then how I applied the artwork to a non-stretched-canvas surface (for a change). It's probably easier than you think!
This Demonstration Collection is connected by the substrate I use - a prepainted Blue background, and the subject is painted in acrylic, often with coloured pencil details.
Walk inside my mind as I explain my thought process of taking a reference image and creating an artwork, in real time - but using the fast forward, pause and rewind functions of video to suit your learning style.
During June and early July 2022, I looked at 12 paintings by Master Artists I admire, and recreated them (or parts of them) in watercolour, with a 15-40 (ish) minute timeframe.
It's wonderful to discover learning as you paint!

During the month of May 2022, I sketched at least 12 'things that make you happy' as sent in by the Shiny Happy Art community.
I used watercolour and coloured pencils, with a 15 minute time limit, and the variety was wonderful!
I hope they make you happy too!
