Week 36 – Monochromatic painting with Lucy Brydon

Back to Classroom


Hello dear Hearts and Souls and welcome to week 36!

As you already know, for the past two weeks my family and I were visiting mine and my husbands parents. We missed them very much and it was so good to spend time with them! The weather was extremely hot and we couldn’t travel much, so I had some extra time to create. Since I didn’t have many art supplies with me I decided to paint with whatever I can find. I went to the closest store and got a little set of acrylic paint. For the substrate I used found cardboard boxes, which were fairly small, but when I opened them up they actually became quite a good size and the folds helped with a composition. 

I had so much fun creating on the boxes, that as soon as I came back I opened a challenge over my FB group. Creating on the boxes helped me to let go all the expectations and just experiment and follow my intuition.

Below are two of my paintings and if you feel inspired – join my FB group and the CHALLENGE!
