Ahhh, the beginning of a drawing…..everything is so neat, clean and white…..and the color choices in my head get to speak their minds (not always listening to what’s going on up there, but they get to speak, LOL!)
Then as the drawing progresses, the desk gets sloppier and sloppier! I’m a slob! Especially while immersed in something. My DH keeps asking me when I’m going to pick up my markers…..I just tell him…. “Soon, Honey, soon"
Closer view of my tools on my sloppy desk…..
Still can’t seem to get away from my RAINBOW color scheme. Just can’t…..too fun to use all those lovely colors, I think.
Hand-drawn bird and umbrella….stenciled in the paisley shapes & anchor. I doodled a different pattern on the separate color sections to add some variety. Doodled inside the shapes with a white marker, I was hoping the inner white doodles would stand out a little more…..but it worked. The shapes’ background color had variation according to the lines from the umbrella sections.
There’s so much in life that’s unplanned, out of our control and totally unexpected…Just hold onto your anchor and keep FACING FORWARD.
Had to bring the book theme “Facing Forward” onto the page in some way, so this is what I came up with, kind of fits with my life right now!
This was a very relaxing piece to do, something about zoning out while filling in the color sections, the repetitive nature of the backgrounds and that good ‘ole slow journaling.
