I’ve been intrigued by the work of Claudia McGill and Kerfe at Method Two Madness for many moons, and been thinking about incorporating words and mixed media collage more into my abstract work. I picked up a random book page I’d started cutting words from last summer, and these words jumped out at me, so I thought it would be fun to let them inspire my artwork.
I created this mainly with Neocolor II crayons, adding words cutout from a (really bad) book, adding black acrylic paint as a finishing touch. I can see why artists get hooked on circles! Other similar posts using this circular technique from Cat Hand on YouTube are here, here and here. Seriously, if you ever just wanna have fun with color and play like a little kid, those Neocolor crayons and that circle technique are sure to please.
Enjoy the weekend and make time to play today. You owe it to yourself.
