Here's looking at you kid! So can anyone guess what movie recently inspired my latest art journal page??
Here is the initial drawing on a gelli print deli paper background:
Guessed it yet?
A glimpse of what was on my art desk:
I'm usually working on more than one project at a time. On the left is a rough sketch of a portrait I plan on painting in my large journal. My green tea is nice and hot in the mug I got from the college our son went to ( DeSales University). It was important to keep it covered this time:)
Here's the completed page:
and the movie that inspired it?
Have any of you seen it? A really good movie based on the art and life of Margaret Keane! Hubby and I wanted to see it at the movie theater but it only showed in select theaters and for a VERY short time so we missed it. However, I bought it last week hoping it was worth it- and it actually cost the same as it would have cost to see it just once at the movie theater! We both enjoyed it very much! It was directed by Tim Burton and starred Amy Adams as Margaret and Christoph Waltz as her husband Walter Keane. They both did an amazing job in their roles! I don't want to give any of it away but will say I was happy about the ending. Margaret was specifically known for her portraits of children with very big eyes, and I have always been partial to big eyes-people or animals:):) So of course I had to make my own attempt at a big eyed girl:)
Have you seen any movies lately that have inspired you to make art?
