March 2, 2016 ~ Geometrics in My Art Journal

"I'm not confused, I'm just well mixed."
~Robert Frost

Some days I do not feel like I am very well mixed,  and as I grow older and older I find myself more and more confused. Still, I love this quote from Robert Frost. It makes me smile.

These are two of my art journal pages using geometry figures. For the quilt square, I used watercolor pencils and Micron pens while for the 9 Square it was all pen and ink. It was really difficult to replicate the middle on the top with the middle on the bottom. A light box comes in handy, but I still had to figure out what to do with each of the lines.When I set out to do this, I had no idea how long it was going to take especially for that middle square. The one exciting thing that came out of it was the third little square on the bottom row of the middle somehow, magically, showed perspective which I usually cannot create. This little square looks like stone steps either going up or down, and it was so exciting to see them. How I did it I do not know, but I will be referring back to this in the future if I want to do any steps. I added the little bits of red because I thought it perked up the drawing. The prompt for this week was "geometric".

  1. YOu done so, so good! I love both of these...I could not choose a favorite if I had to!

  2. Well, I continue to be duly impressed with your art journal. These geometrics are very involved. And yes you did get perspective on the square you mention. The magic of art is all I have to say.
