Today’s “From the Vault”, comes from my typography class (I think), which I know seems a little strange because it’s a drawing of the soles of shoes. But these images were just two of a series of different mediums, which were used to create texture. A also used letterforms, arrows and a few other elements to create some type of texture.
Texture is one of my very favorite aspects of the work I’m doing now. I’m always trying to figure out new ways to create a tactile surface or add a little dimensionality to my paintings. Texture adds a certain depth and richness that I find so fascinating, and when combined with the right color combination, it can be really magical 🙂
So here’s my drawing from the past, I don’t think I have the patience I used to when it comes to detailed drawings! But of course I had the extra motivation for getting good grades back then…
Happy Monday to you, here’s to a wonderful new week.
