Had to take a little break from birdie & babushka drawing!! Needed a no-brainer and a chance to use some of the elements from my doodle directory and doodle stimulus pages. The inspiration for this was found at flickr. I was drawn to the repetitive nature of this piece, and yet the details make it so interesting.
I limited myself to black/grays in alternating squares, with reds/oranges in the opposing lines. Actually, I really wanted to alternate the line of black/grays with reds/orange, then BLUES, then GREENS, etc…but I messed up and then I had to go with the original plan! Ahhhh well, the downside of manual art. If done in photoshop it would be as simple as a Ctrl-Z (undo) to fix!!!
I like the black white look, I do! But, I find if I only do a piece in b/w that I’m missing something! It’s like it’s calling me to color it in! Yep, my inner pre-school teacher is wanting to get in and fill the white space!! I’ve learned that I might as well let her color if that’s what she wants! I’m happier that way!! LOL!
Ta-Da…..the finished piece! Good thing I have lots of fabric, sure helps set the tone for these pictures!
