Broken but Ferocious …. {Six Word Wednesday}

six word story:  they surround you broken but ferrocious

 

 

Another random gathering of words that presented themselves to me.

From the first time I read these words and every time after, I think of the teenagers I’ve taught over 20+ years –

many broken, but angry and trying to hide it ….

This six-word story happened when unrelated words on the fridge found their way together, leading me to wonder:

Where will the red sky be?

Underpants and the Art Studio…. {a Little 411 Fun}

canvases painted red on studio table-underpaintingArtists call it underpainting: a layer of paint that goes on first, as a base coat, to provide a foundation for finished work, adding depth and tonal qualities to later layers in acrylic and oil paintings. Colors vary.

I’ve read that some contemporary artists use this technique, though it was much more common by the greats before them.

I began tinkering with paint in 2015, but didn’t learn about underpainting until a few months ago, while watching an artist on YouTube. Then, during a recent workshop, I heard the term again as Donna Downey added a layer of red paint to her canvas, explaining its purpose. Want to know more? Here’s a little 411 on the topic.

Steeped in art history, underpainting is a method I now employ. Not only does it eliminate a blank white canvas, I also love how bits of red peek through in my work.

However, always playing with words {here’s the fun part}….

I prefer to call it underpants.

Why?

It makes me laugh every time I say it!  😉
