|Lexie and me starting the new art journal.|
In my written review, I wrote that: "Journal #2 was sporadic and monochromatic." I felt I had created a few wonderful pages (that I loved) but in 2015, for Journal #3 I vowed to:
- Fill each page
- Be fearless with colour
- Draw daily
I also thought it would be helpful to take a pause and revisit some of the basics. Like singers and musicians who play scales or sing arpeggios for practice and to warm up, it doesn't hurt artists to revisit the basics over and over again for practice.
Ingredients and Recipe = Elements and Principles
|The elements of art are like the ingredients.|
....The recipe is the principles of art. The principles of art are an organized way that the elements of art are arranged in a work of art.
The elements can be arranged in a work to produce balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, and unity (harmony, proportion, variety). So the principles of art are dependent on the elements.
No elements - no principles. No ingredients - no recipe."
