These are close ups of tree bark that I took on my walks. I spent a whole walk especially taking pictures for the challenge so I could do something with them in my sketchbook. I took a couple of dozen pictures and here's what I did with them:
|I printed them as a contact sheet and filled an entire spread with them.|
|I did a mixed media spread with paint and collage and markers, much fun was had with this one!|
|I tried to turn the shapes of one of the pictures into abstract art in different media.|
All the above spreads were done in my Studio Book by the way and this book measures 25x25 cm (10x10 inches). It's nice to take a theme in different directions and see where it might lead you. I like the differences in the looks of the spreads and the variety in materials I used and yet it's also obvious they belong together. That's what a theme can do for you! ;-)
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!
