Went to another paint class so I could attempt painting galaxy prints. I had a lot of fun. I found it a bit challenging getting the right blend I wanted but overall, the aim was to learn how to achieve the galaxy print. I think I nailed it. Another skill gained.
I could feel myself slipping into a depressive state and as i was asked what would motivate me, I realised I needed something before motivation. Whatever the step was before motivation was what I needed. I was quite emotionless which is not a good place to be, so I did my shadow work to come to the realisations of what was going on with me and determined I needed some strength and willpower. I also found that I needed to find some things that would bring about inspiration. A friend suggested that I need a challenge of something I had never done before. So, I looked at cheap classes around Melbourne and stumbled on Cork and Canvas which allowed anyone with no prior experience to paint. There is always a painting you would have to copy in class with an instructor to show each step. I had never painted anything besides some crappy finger painting I might have done in primary school. This was my challenge and I am happy that I went because it sparked my creativity.
Here is what I created. I am so proud of what I can accomplish!
So I hadn't been practising in months. I can't even remember when I drew these, but I was passing Officeworks and had this sudden urge to buy a sketchbook and pencils. I didn't know what to draw, so I just typed some words in Google and tried to replicate. This is what came out. Just playing around really. There is a fairy, angel wing, Lady crying and stag. Didn't leave myself room for antlers on the stag, but I'll learn more on perception, proportion and scale.
