The prompt for today was pretty straightforward and easy to do. My initial intention was to create a chaotic scene outside with the whole town burning, while being flooded and having high speed winds. However, once I began working on it, it morphed into a somewhat pleasant town with a slight bit of chaos.
The first thing I did was measure the window’s height and width. I then cut out a piece of blue vellum paper that was a bit larger than the window. After that I began cutting out the separate little pieces. I used cardstock paper for almost everything except the houses’ windows, the water, the boat’s sails, the wind, and the sun.
I glued down most of the pieces and taped down some of the velum pieces that would be altered with excessive glue.
There are still some changes I want to make to the outdoor scene to make it stand out more and fit in with the story a bit better, but I will get to that.
Only eight more prompts and the April Art Challenge will be done!
