The painting lessons are on a break for a few weeks, so I’ve gone a bit ‘off-piste’ stretching my comfort zone again this week with a go-it-alone painting.
I’ve always been fascinated with the pop art world of Andy Warhol, where artistic expression meets advertising and celebrity culture.
My approach with this week was to take a well-known band and Warhol-esque it.
This is the first time I’ve played with Indian Ink on top of the acrylics, and using the detail to reverse out the final portraits.
We don’t always express ourselves in the same way every time, and trying new approaches can reveal different outcomes we hadn’t even considered before – a bit of trial and error perhaps?
There’s a saying “If you keep on doing what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got!”
Without experimenting and trying new approaches, many of the inventions we take for granted today would never exist. Experimentation is a fundamental part of personal development, and something we naturally did as children – before we were told that things had to be done a certain way.
For me, combining techniques and trying something different is one way I progress. Being open to new opportunities that I might not even have considered before has, at times, changed the direction of my life, for the better!
Try looking at things with a different eye…
I believe that life is full of limitless opportunities. Be open to different possibilities and opportunities and who knows what new direction your life might take?
With love xx
