I have always been in some sort of art class throughout my educational career. I always like to draw for my daughter and other loved ones. I never really viewed myself as an accomplished artist and really never would have thought that my career path would lead me into the art industry. Coming equipped with an engineering mind, I always thought that art was measured by a certain metric. That is entirely not the case. Art is subjective! Take music for example, I may like country music and you may like thrash metal. Regardless of the genre, it is still art composition and takes a certain talent for every part in the orchestration of music.
Since I have never painted and our company’s core value is fostering creativity. We thought that it be rightfully so if I have a painting in our art gallery. Likewise as a sales person of 18+ years, believing in and using your product is the only way to know your product better. You believe in and love what you are offering.
Using SuerCool Art’s themed 24″x24″ stencils makes the art composition relatively easy. The proportion is perfect for the 24″x24″ large painting kit and the 16″x20″ medium painting kit. Art composition is taking your vision and outlining that dream. I used A Night in Space themed stencil. Unfortunately I did not document the stenciling and sketching of the art composition. Below are some pictures of my art composition with the background started in a deep aubergine.
One thing that I have learned from other accomplished artist since I have started is that the only limitation is your mind. The stencils provided are a guidelines and not necessarily the rule. You can use anything that you want on the stencil and don’t be afraid to free hand. This particular painting has used various elements to create EVERY line on this art composition. The “alien” space ship was fun to assemble out of parts from other elements on the themed stencil kit. Those of you that have purchased A Night in Space kits, please send us your vision. Will you and/or your child be the next JJ Abrams or Gene Roddenburry
I am over halfway done with the painting and will be posting more in the next fews days.
