I took Flora Bowley’s online course a few months ago. If you aren’t familiar with Flora’s work, you must check out her blog. She does this amazing abstract expressive type of art. I so want to be able to paint like her, (but like me) some day (if you know what I mean lol). While taking the course, I worked on 3 canvasses, and 2 art journals. If nothing else, I wanted to be able to paint BIG. Her art is HUGE. I finally got around to photographing some of my work, and thought I’d share one of them today. This is in my Moleskine A3 journal. This thing is HUGE. If you want to get a feel for the size of it, check out Donna Downey’s video here. It is 16 1/2″ x 11 1/2″! Donna got the sketchpad version. Mine is the watercolor version, and is landscape orientated, as opposed to portrait oriented like Donna’s. And, the paper in mine is thicker, which, in my opinion, holds wet media much better. So, when it’s open, it measures 33″ x 11 11 1/2″!
So, here’s my Flora Bowley inspired art journal spread.
