Friday Randomness--It's Visual

I think this is a great idea.  What fun!  Or is it just me?  The idea--take a contemporary photograph and overlay a photograph from history and . . . voila!

This artists shares some really lovely watercolors she does.  I don't know what it is but her use of color is enchanting in my opinion.  Yes, I can see flaws in some of the portraits--an asymmetry that has yet to be mastered.  But still . . . technique will come with practice and who am I, the non-drawing type, to judge?

And I've shared zentangles before.  This one was done by two people and I thought that sounded like fun because one person would do a section and could then pass it to the other person who would add something, probably unexpected, before returning it to the first person and . . .well, you get the idea.

  1. I really loved the watercolor portraits as well. I love how the colors are different from what the scene would have looked like in real life. Beautiful!

  2. Me too. I love the way droplets of color are in odd places as though they were splashed and left by accident. No doubt they were and are but it gives the eye a reason to dance around the page.
