Illustration Friday time: Electricity.
Time for Rain: Electric Storm
This week was tough for me. I like to use the prompts to really jump start a fun piece of art. All I kept seeing was outlets and wires in my head. Then I started thinking of ole Benny Franklin (who btw, I am no longer a fan of since I saw the John Adams Series on HBO!) and that led me to think of electrical storms. I once heard that many animals don't like storms, not because of the noise but because of the build-ups of static electricty in the air--SHOCKING.
This piece was also a couple experiments in one. First, I pulled out my masking fluid to create the lightening and THEN painted it. I wasn't sure it would come off under all that acrylic paint. The second was making a "DARK" piece. Of course I had to start with my bright signature blues and greens but then I darkened them all up.
Today is rainy and tomorrow will be too. Seems a fitting piect to do.
