In just a short couple of days from now, The latest Creative Tuesdays will be upon us. So, if you've been thinking about taking part in the festivities, please hop on over to Mr. Toast's creative co-op and read the guidelines and share your art based on the current theme, which, for this edition of Creative Tuesdays, it's Bottle.
For my piece this week I was going to draw a a bottle with a ship inside of it, but when I tried, I remembered it was a little above my current skill level. I think the bottle looked ok, but the brown blurb inside looked nothing like a ship. So, I thought, hmmm…and came up with an idea for some kind of ad campaign. I started with an empty bottle on a white screen (didn't include it here), then I painted inside the bottle, was going to go with the lightning in a bottle theme, but I liked the way the aquamarine/teal blend looked too much to stray from it. Then, as is seen in the first painting, I added a ferocious seascape to surround the bottle. The next couple pieces I simply changed the color of the sea, layered them up together and used the old knife and went abstract on it, adding a variety of colors and found the ad I liked best.
Looking forward to see how many bottles are on the CT wall this week.
