Lately I’ve been slacking at my art projects. I’ve lost my supplies. My brother stole them. My younger sister got into them. I’ve had to buy totally new things.
My latest project I had to improvise.
I had a plan.
My list involved:
Black and white acrylic paint.
Fine tip brushes.
& colored pencils.
Well I ended up using: white acrylic paint, India ink, makeup brushes, eyeshadow, colored pencils, pens and nail polish.
I made sure to give it texture.
I made sure to add little details.
& this was the ending result.
“I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.”
The point of this drawing is to represent the difference between creativity and general education. The darker part represents the left side of the brain and the colorful part represents the right side of the brain. I didn’t start this project with the mindset that this would be the concept of the brain but that’s what the creative side of my brain came up with. Whenever I start a project with a basic idea my brain always comes up with ways to make it better. Whether it’s drawing, coloring, rearranging my room, I always manage to come up with ideas. I’m not trying to come off as cocky or like I’m high and mighty, it’s just that my mind has been like that my whole life.
The brain is just a fascinating topic and I’m hoping to get more into the crevices and ways of the brain after my next psychology and philosophy class.
