Week 3 leads onto exploring the different elements of artmaking like point and line, texture, shape, space, motion and colour.
Every day I took my earlier inspiration and played with it in the light of these categories.
I made a short animation film. I cut out stencils. I reached for my old school oil pastels…
I discovered the mortality in the touch and creation, through the short filmie I got to see the touch as crucial, and then with the introduction of colour, I moved into spring.
I found week three quite hard going…which is usual in a thirty day challenge…the initial enthusiasm vanishes, the life gets in the way…still, these twenty minutes a day of arting practice have kept my sanity.
Also, the importance of looking back and reflecting on the previous creations is paramout…and will be even more so, in week 4 when we get to explore the principles guiding the elements.
