Hi there Polkadot,
Seeing the featured image with my post… You probably went: what was she thinking? Or what is that lady doing? I’m not sure to be honest 😉 I think in the original by Schiele, the model is putting on her stocking, or some kind of clothing. But I decided to make the piece of cloth into a blanket. Making the image a bit bizar, I admit.
In this lesson of the Love Art Happy Life E-course, I followed the lead by Bybun to make this journal spread.
Supplies used for this spread:
- collage papers
- gel medium
- acrylic paints in a muted palet
- graphite pencil
- stabilo Marks All pencil
- gel pens
- ink pens (Artline nr O)
- posca paint pen in black
I made a second one too, because you know, layers have to dry and I have no patience.
Both of the journal pages started by studying a sketch by Schiele. I really enjoyed doing these lessons! I have seen several of Schieles works in real life, because he is part of my favorite period in art: fin the sciecle, but I never really LIKED them. I always am in awe of people being able to draw, especially people, and therefor I respected him for his art. Even if his characters are deformed, but I never studies him or his art. This lesson gave me a bit more understanding from where he was creating. I didn’t find a nice long documentary to share with you. Bybun thought me how to break up an image an how to study it. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t really draw from a live model, over a photo or a sketch, but this is yet another step in getting over thresholds. Yeah for that!
