While animating, I dried my hand on some paper. Then I stumbled upon this... made by inadvertence. What does it make you think of? I'm very curious to know! (It reminds me of the poem, l'Ecole des Beaux-arts, by Jacques Prévert (rough translation here) :)
"In a plaited straw box, The father chooses a small, paper ball And he throws it In a bowl cup In front of his intrigued children Suddenly comes out Multicolored The huge japanese flower The instanteous water lily And the children now are quiet Marveled… Never after in their memory This flower will wither away This sudden flower Made for them In the minute In front of them."
Pendant que j'animais, j'ai séché ma main sur une feuille de papier ; puis en regardant plus attentivement, j'y ai découvert cette forme, faite par inadvertance.
A quoi cela vous fait-il penser ? Je suis très curieuse de le découvrir !
(Cela me rappelle un morceau du poème, l'Ecole des Beaux-arts, de Jacques Prévert :)
"Dans une boîte en paille tressée, Le père choisit une boule de papier. Et il la jette Dans la cuvette Surgit alors Multicolore La grande fleur japonaise Le nénuphare instantané Et les enfants se taisent Emerveillés... Jamais plus tard dans leur souvenir Cette fleur ne pourra se faner ..."
("Sforzando" means to go from piano to forte, in music notation. Here's an old picture from Inktober, made a while ago, to illustrate a few thoughts of late.)
keep on thinking that drawing, and animating, is much like playing the
piano ; especially in the case of direct animation, each note, each
colour happens in time - we must keep in mind the development and follow
the flow, using each "accident" as it comes as raw material, whilst
being present to the whole intention ; there's no going back in music ; you just go forward.
the leading voice in my head, writing each sound in harmony as it comes
under your fingers, while keeping in mind a solid whole. Each drawing is
the expression of all the repetitions (which make up our experience) ,
each motion a melody ; each scene, each panel, a "movement" in the music
piece ; the whole forms the dynamic tapestry of the work.
on wax has this incredible feeling of sculpting, painting, and playing
the piano, all together! The touch of the texture is like the touch on
organic, vibrant, sensitive... and lively.
