Blogging is a wonderful thing!
Sometimes a blogpost fills you with a creative wow!
The immediate thought of, ' I must go try that now!!'
This strange experiment is the result of reading Lynne Hoppe post a couple of days ago on the artist Peter Rush
Peter uses old cereal boxes and coloured pencils to make the most fantastic cityscapes. Please take a look at his flicker link and prepare to be amazed at what you can do on the back of a cereal box!!
There was something about the idea of making something from nothing, and the shape of the opened cereal box creating a strange shaped canvas which I loved. I think the pencil, just ordinary coloured pencils look very effective against the greyish, buff toes of the cardboard. I did add a little collaged bookpaper to the finished sketch for the sky and spread a little gesso over it.
This was a quick couple of hour sketch, and I really want to try collaging on cereal box card and perhaps sewing it when I have a little more time.
I used one of my photographs as inspiration.
Thank you dear Lynne for sharing and I will get back to eating my cornflakes :)
