A few days ago I wanted to play in my artjournal and this time I felt like making something abstract: no pretty faces or flowers or even a jumping dolphin. I just wanted to get some colors on the page and maybe add few marks. Everything about this page would be playful and intuitive. So I started to paint with hues of red, yellow, orange and brown.
After the first few layers had dried, I noticed the shape of a cloak behind a tree and immediately all my intentions with this page where gone, like dust in the wind. The painting took my hand and guided me into a darkening autumnal forest where a little girl and her dolly came across a cloaked woman with a lantern in her hand. .. I added some oil pastels to enhance the shapes which were eager to be found.
Then the only thing to do was to add some details and this is the final result:
Although I really enjoyed working on this page, the next one might be an abstract. But then again nothing is certain when you start playing in your artjournal
