Sunday sketches - Κυριακάτικα σκίτσα (Cubism-Κυβισμός)

It's Sunday and we are here for one more artistic gathering and all this thanks to Sophia's Blue Chair Diary!!!
If you want to participate just pay a visit to Sophia's blog and enter your name. Of course don't forget to see all the participants and their beautiful and inspiring work.
For today, I decided to show you something I did a few days ago and has to do with Cubism. Even if I'm not a fanatic admirer of this kind of painting I found the entire technique inspiring and quite difficult.
After I did a preliminar sketch, started spliting the image and reordering the pieces... pfffff.... quite messy!

The following picture show the first sketch

And here is the final painting, I used acrylics on aquarella paper.
I had, a crazy or what, idea to place half moon with stars in the background along with two triangles giving the sense of the universe... One is sure, I was in my own space ...  :)

Enjoy the ride and have a wonderful Sunday!!!

Να μαι πάλι εδώ με τα Κυριακάτικα σκίτσα μου. Τελικά έγινε μια αγαπημένη συνήθεια και ένας πολύ όμορφος τρόπος επικοινωνίας με ανθρώπους που βρίσκονται πολύ μακρυά αλλά μοιραζόμαστε την ίδια αγάπη για τη ζωγραφική (με τον ένα ή άλλο τρόπο).
Ο παραπάνω πίνακας εντάσσεται στον κυβισμό και για μένα ήταν μια πρωτόγνωρη εμπειρία. Ομολογώ πως αν και δυσκολεύτηκα, το απόλαυσα και ένιωσα πολύ δημιουργικά. Άφησα τη φαντασία μου ελεύθερη και ένιωσα πως ταξίδευα στο... σύμπαν....
Εύχομαι σε όλους μια όμορφη Κυριακή και μια πιο όμορφη εβδομάδα!!!

  20. eleni, στο συγκεκριμένο έργο τράβηξα οριζόντιες και κάθετες γραμμές στο αρχικό μου σχέδιο και στη συνέχεια προχώρησα στην αποδόμησή του. Ελπίζω να σου έδωσα κάποια ιδέα ώστε να το δοκιμάσεις και εσύ!!! Χαίρομαι που άρεσε η προσπάθεια μου :)

    apinkdreamer, Ελένη μου χαίρομαι που σου άρεσε τόσο πολύ, να το δοκιμάσεις κι εσύ, είναι πολύ δημιουργικό!!

    I love your header or banner it is a lovely painting..The Cubist, now that you have done a very fine art piece yourself , you can appreciate the effort and the work of the cubists artist.
    You have good command of using color to your advantage in you art.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog, will visit your blog again


  24. Hi Katarina, I like this arrangement very much! I think the addition of the moon shapes works! Delightful!

  25. Joanny, welcome and thank you for your sweet words!! My header is one of my favorite paintings and in few days will be hanged in my mother's home :)
    The Cubists artists have chosen a difficult technique to express their thoughts, vision..and I didn't know that before this painting. Thank you again!!

    dthaase, thank you, I'm happy you liked the idea!!

    Peggy Stermer-Cox: Thank you for your visit and mostly for your comment. I'm happy you liked my arrangement and the final painting!!
