Addicted To Scribbles . . . New Clayboard Art



"Amazing Soul" 
9x12 mixed media on clayboard 

Its hard to believe another Friday is upon us.  The weeks fly by so darn fast these days  I cannot seem to keep up.  Haven't done much painting except this new one on the other piece of clayboard I had purchased to try.  


 I did keep to a similar color palette for this piece but added in some blue. I used a combo of water color crayons mixed with gesso and also some  acrylics.  The clayboard really soaks everything up.  But it is easy to wipe away while it is still damp.  


Nothing to me is feeling complete these days without scribbles.  I don't know what it is about it but I feel I just have to add it.  Maybe it is the intuitiveness of the process that I am drawn to.  When I grab that sharpie or white out pen everything stops, my mind shuts off and sometimes I don't even know what I am writing or scribbling it happens so fast.  I am trying not to question but to just go with what feels right.  

I am sharing this today at Paint Party Friday.  

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

    1. Hi Silke! Thanks!! I used crayons in yellow ochre, olive green, burnt sienna, and then added a new blue paint from the martha stewart line "deep sea" I love that color! It reminds me of payne's gray! I did some shading with a faber castell gelato in black. it smudges easily and is also water soluble.
