Creative Tuesday's next challenge is the moon. Well, I am afraid that my imaginative muse flew out the window on this one. As all I could think of was an owl and the moon, I had to come up with something that was not in my normal style or using acrylics, so I tried a lino print. In the UK speedycarve is not readily available so I had to resort to cutting it out of printers lino, which I found quite hard to cut.
Anyway this is the result, which I am not that happy about, and also a picture of the cut lino, which I put a little orange on it to make it stand out better for the photo. But that is what this co-op is all about is to push yourself.
As I was drinking a cup of black coffee as the time, I sploshed some of my coffee onto some watercolour paper added a few granules of coffee, let it dry and then drew the same owl and moon. Dried coffee actually give a lovely surface to draw on and it smells heavenly whilst you are working. Sorry I had to resort to some of my usual line work, but I did not use acrylics!
Mr T, feel free to use whichever picture, as I am not sure if the lino print qualifies. Come next Tuesday go and see how others have been more inspirational than me with the moon.
