In my last blog post I promised I'd tell you about what I'm thinking about while I draw my kaleidoscope paintings. Well, here it is:
Nothing. That's right absolutely nothing! For me, drawing kaleidoscopes is a spur of the moment, impulsive kind of thing in which I make marks on a page/ piece of illustration board, and I work very freely with each piece. When I start a new piece, I have no image in mind. I just go with the flow and over time I see what emerges from the canvas. The truth is, I'm just as surprised by the end result as the observer is. I have no plan when it comes to my kaleidoscopes in ink. Instead, I just work freely.
Switching gears, I've recently read that a lot of people who are not artists seem to be interested in the creative spaces artists work in. And so . . . in my next blog post, I'm opening up the SamDoum Art studio and inviting you in. You will see what space I work in when I do my paintings, whether they be kaleidoscope drawings, portraits, or anything else. So, as always, stay tuned . . .
Enjoy! And 'til later fellow art lovers!
