Marsha Valk’s artistic super power is Synthesis.
Marsha used what she had in her studio and with some paint, marking, collaging, lots of white pen writing and doodling, she created a wonderful way of showing your artwork.
I love this lesson with windows to frame your art. It’s like a little house with windows that you open up to peek inside! It took me a while to figure out what to put inside each window. Then I thought of showing off what Victoria, Australia had to offer. Of course there are lots on offer here in this wonderful state where I live and grown up in. During our summer, especially the first 3 months of the year, there is plenty of things to do and see in Melbourne and around Victoria. We go into Melbourne quite often to see events like Australia Day festivities, Chinese New Year festivities, Sustainability events, movies, exhibitions at the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria), Fed Square, Museums, etc. Watch the Australian Open Tennis, Grand Prix, etc on tv.
So here is my take on this lesson. It features some fabulous graffiti art work around Melbourne CBD and suburbs, landmarks, seaside, and Australian music legends! All these pictures I had cut out of magazines. I loved making the backgrounds with stencilling and bits of paint and marking that I learnt throughout CJS20 month.
Thank you Marsha for this brilliant tutorial!
