Creative Destruction Day Four - Peeking through Dance Hall Windows

One of the artists that I find inspiring is Donna Downey.  I love her Inspiration Wednesday videos because her movements are so free, and she really drives home the idea of letting your tools do the work.

I'm sharing works and practice pages that I've destroyed and re-created as something else, and I decided with this page to try and mimic Donna Downey's style.  This spread was originally used to practice 'splatting' my Montana markers, something that Donna does frequently.  After adding some stickers & ephemera, I covered most of the page over with black gesso.  Then I added more paint from the Montana Markers.

I like the feeling of light spilling out into the dark from open doorways.

Playing around with possible ideas for upcoming fantasy landscape step-outs.  I figured out a super, easy way to draw people!
