Alpine Season

Art & Photography

Back in 2013, HonestlyWTF introduced me to the concept of double exposure photography, via the incredible works of Oriol Angrill Jordà. In Jordà’s series blendscapes, he combines watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencil and graphite to create mesmerizing portraits that perfectly mimic the style photography. Recently, I revisited Jordà’s work to use as inspiration for my visual arts class at school, inspiring this piece along the way:

 

  Although the final piece simply does not compare to Jordà’s masterful combination of hyper realistic sketches and perfectly placed paint (goals, amirite), experimenting with different media offers a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with a medium, experiment with techniques, and figure out what you can do to tie different components together into one visually appealing image.

A Lack Of Inspiration

Art & Photography, Life

I’ve ticked everything off of my
“to do list” but it still feels like there’s
stuff left to do. But I don’t know
what. I want to draw, but
what? I want to write, but what?

This, I guess.

Oddly enough, this impromptu illustrative vent of frustration seemed to clear my “artist’s block”! I recently read an artist say that his sketchbook was not really a book at all, as he must draw on big sheets of paper or else drawings often end up warped to fit on the small, confined pages.

For some reason I brought my sketchbook and fineliners to church on Sunday, but not my house keys.
So, I spent service and the half hour I was locked out of my house (fortunately my ancient apartment complex has a restaurant- that sells coconuts!) inking up this thang.
