During the last couple of months I’ve signed up to Creativebug (it’s like netflix for art!) and I’ve followed a number of art tutorials. I love doing these because I always learn new things and I’ve particularly enjoyed a 30 day series of painting by artist Carolyn Gavin. She makes the most vibrant paintings, they are so happy and perfect for summer.
The thing that gets me is that I can never anticipate her paintings. Watching her, I can never guess what she’s going to do next, but the results are always interesting and playful. It’s very refreshing to watch.
Here’s a recent painting from her instagram.
