Instagram is my biggest source of art inspiration. I can find almost every kind of artwork that I am interested in. Video tutorials, live stories, tips and tricks – there’s so much learn. So much to create.
I have seen the dot artworks floating in my feed for a while now. But only last week I gave in and entered the world of Stippling and Pointillism.
Stippling artworks and pointillism, both are artforms where artist uses dots to create patterns or add shades. The difference between the two is stippling is done using a solid single color like black or brown, while in pointillism you can use different colors.
I am extremely new to this artwork. Borrowing inspiration from other artists I tried to make these two humble pieces. I need to use better paper as these are made on a glossy cardstock and can easily get smudged if the ink hasn’t dried well.
I remember when I was young, I used to make similar kind of drawings at the back of my notebooks, along with doodles and amature typography of my crush’s name 😅. I didn’t know all the fancy names back then. And if mom spotted me ‘wasting’ the pages, a broom would come flying towards me. Maybe that is why I enjoy art so much. It brings back memories of those simple days of childhood, the feel of wild grass and flutter of butterflies in school park.
The other art project that I am currently working on is creating my travel journal on the recent Tasmania trip. All along the journey I collected pamphlets and booklets, with maps and pretty pictures, to be used in scrapbooking. I am in no rush to finish it and will slowly complete it, as and when I come up with new design template. Here’s a glimpse of the pages I have done till now.
If you have more ideas, please don’t forget to share in comments.
