Welcome to my first "Back to Business Monday", every Monday I'll blog about how setting up my business "Into the Mix" is going...
In order to set myself up under the business “Into the Mix” I need products, stuff to sell, wares to wield, gorgeous loveliness to brandish and my own unique art to unleash upon the world. Ok, but first I need to nail my own STYLE. Hmmm, not as easy and obvious as it sounds. I looked at my work in the new year and realised I didn’t have a core style and this is where CAPI 2013 came in.
CAPI stands for “Create Art Portfolio Ideas” and is a free online art course by the wonderful Milliande. The course is all about drawing out your own unique style, it’s a slow paced course you can join at any time and you can follow it on Milliande’s site, the CAPI Facebook group and at The CAPI ning group. The accompanying videos are available on Youtube and there’s also stuff on Pinterest! Phew, lots to see and do!
Developing the form and on this photo you can see a woman which most resembles that original form.
Starting to test her out in different mediums...
Now she has some friends...
I can see these becoming a series on greetings cards and prints too. I LOVE these figures and find them so effortless to create. I love how they link to the natural world and are so simple in design.
So, watch this space, folks.
