I have artwork to share with you today!
There is something wonderful about how art clears my mind. For that short period I am creating I am taken away to another place and allowed to focus solely on letting emotions out on to paper in whatever form they take.
I never really know what I am going to get. Sometimes it's just a random page filled with nonsense doodles. Sometimes it's a clever idea that I just can't wrap any details around. Sometimes (like the one I am sharing today) everything just works out and I'm proud and clear minded at the end.
My inspiration was the Pure Imagination theme from Mr. Toasts Creative Tuesday's.
After sketching I inked and erased the pencil. You can really start to see this taking on some life!
And here you are. This is "Animal Tea Party"
Looking at it now, it's a little bit Dr. Seuss meets kiddo book art meets funky colors meets Charlottes Web. So fun!
I don't have a lot of experience with color pencils, but I adore how they gave the animals and tea cups saturated colors that really pop! I can't wait to experiment with inking and color pencils in a future doodle!
A closer look at the cutie patutie giraffe I've named George (said with French accent). And I included a little surprise... do you see it? Do you?
Want to see other artists interpretation of Pure Imagination? Just head over to Hot Toast and Jam for a looksie! And for pete's sake... if you are on the fence about joining in? Do it! Seriously, your brain will thank you!
Hint: The surprise included may be in the form of an oddly shaped giraffe spot!! Don't you love surprises?
