I got a new art book called Mixed-Media Girls with Suzi Blu. I have been messing around with watercolors for the last few months and I was ready for something completely different. I love the author of this book, it came with a DVD where Suzi Blu coaches shy amateur artists to explore their creativity. Tell yourself, she says, tell yourself “I am an ARTIST!” She’s funny and strange and I really like her.
This style is for me. I really enjoy it and have already made two new mix-media paintings. The first one called “Pink To Death” was created by following Suzi Blu’s guidelines as stated in the book. My second mix-media painting is called “Bewitched by the Moon” and it uses some of the same techniques as found in the book but more my own style.
Here’s a slideshow of my paintings:
