Art Nouveau Frame

Drawing, Ink

Hi all,

I had every intention of doing the July Watercolour challenge, but alas I haven’t made the time. Life and work are quite full on at the moment. I know that’s not a compelling excuse, but sometimes it’s the most honest one. We’ve got a provisional completion date on the flat so there’s a lot of admin tasks that need doing. Keep all fingers and toes crossed for us!

I wanted to make sure I posted something this month, so here’s the start of a little project. Eventually I’d like to paint a larger version but planning it every so often is easier.

The weather has been beautiful recently, but it has meant VERY warm nights. Combine that with work stress and it’s meant I haven’t been sleeping all that well. Rather than sitting and wondering how many hours it’s been, I decided to start doing a bit of art. It felt good to be doing something totally unrelated to anything else and purely for myself.

When I went to Prague I made some simple sketches of the composition in Mucha Art Nouveau posters. From there I used some reference photos and this inktober sketch to put together a nature scene:

Eventually I’ll add more, like some floral design or detail to the frames, but for now if I post on here I’m more likely to follow it up later.

That’s all for now. As always, I’ll try to catch up with everyone else’s posts soon.

Julia
