Inspiration_Avenue_Picasso


With my scraps of paper I just had to create an entry for the challenge at inspiration avenue this week. The theme is Picasso and I created a version of his Three Musicians. It was fun creating his painting with scraps of paper. For one of the musician clothes, I took an orange paper and drew lines and colored the triangles with yellow pen to get the look. The box shadow around the edge is paper too. But the dog under the table is inked in.


My background does not match the painting but I wanted to be a little different. Used alcohol inks and then chalk ink on top. Then to get the layer of color used a blending solution.

Liking this one too. Wasn't this a fun challenge? I love that everyone went out on a limb and made the pieces their own.

I've missed you on IA. It's good to see you back this week. I'm really impressed with your take on the Three Musicians. I reference them in my piece, so I was glad to see your choice of entries. This is great!

I had to laugh. I think we were writing our comments to each other at the exact same time.
