I want to conclude with a few words about this fantastic course where I have learned to use digital tools I have never used before.It has been so very exciting reading and practicing making digital photographs and images and movies.I am embarking on a new art series called SCRIBBLES(see below)
|SUSAN HARMON, EMOTIONAL SCRIBBLE SERIES#1,2015|
To cover with meaningless marks.
To write or draw in a hasty or meaningless way.
A hasty or careless drawing or piece of writing.
A series of meaningless marks or scrawls.
Often, we associate scribbling with negative habits: It’s out of control, childish, messy, sloppy or wasteful.
Word Origin and History for scribble. From Medieval Latin scribillare, diminutive of Latin scribere "to write" Related: Scribbled; scribbling. The noun, "hurried or careless writing,"
The type of scribbling I’m talking about is emotional drawing from my subconscious, a way of capturing the subject’s unique quality. It’s often hard to describe scribbling without relating to almost mystical terms, because this kind of scribble drawing records my deepest impressions, thoughts and feelings and these things aren’t well suited to verbal (left-brained) expression. But once I get started it all comes together.
These art works are made with a digital program called paint. I began using only black and the pencil tool .I closed my eyes so I could not control my lines and marks. I then added white, gray and pink and other tools such as the color picker, paintbrush but I kept my eyes closed. Next I looked at my images of sidewalk lines and began drawing scribbles without looking at the computer. Scribbles are the marks of preschoolers; before writing, before formal drawing. No thinking .Emotions. Marks from the subconscious.
