Yesterday, when I shared my palette for Palette and Paint Thursday, I mentioned that I'd been working on my Traveling Sketchbook again. And so, here it is:
I wanted to use Autumn inspired colors since it's for the month of November and I'm focusing on Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead for my theme. This is the background I painted in:
These are scraps of paper leftover from my art classes and I just painted free form swirls and stuff. I'd planned on cutting them into pockets to hold the 13 (to represent each of the Sistas) sugar skulls. But, now I like them so much, I don't want to cut them up.....so we'll see what I end up doing with them......
Here's my winged skeleton- I'm planning to cut him out and glue him down in pop up format with the sugared-sistah-skulls poking up and around him. IF I can get it to match my vision, it should look super cool.......
Now, I'm off to start painting the skulls......I'll you all later at Paint Party Friday!
Here is what the skeleton looks like cut out and folded before I glue him into place. I want to get all the skulls done and planned out before I do anything final!
